Hi mover distributing,

That’s the most often asked question here. :)

If you’d like a risk free way of testing the waters, you can probably try selling unwanted stuff from your home. Just make sure that they are still in pretty good condition at least, something that you wouldn’t mind paying something for. A lot of eBay sellers start out this way. :)

Then you can start to do some market research and choose to sell those with considerable market demand. Just remember to search and deal with products you have interest in, the ones that you know and have experience with. Market demand plus your interest are the two important factors you need to consider. And then the supply. :) It gets really tricky since you also need to know if you will be up to too stiff a competition. Do not think that the trendiest product or the most popular ones or the ones that you like most will be the easiest to sell. Do an eBay search and see if your chosen product is being offered for sale and if there are too many being listed, then such product is saturated.

I suggest that you back read our posts related to this concern. They may give you useful insights.

Once you have decided on a product, we'll help you search for suppliers. Just let us know. :)

Hard to ad anything more to what Irene has posted, all very sound advice and a great place for anyone just looking at getting started in online sales to start.

As Irene suggested, read through the forum, stacks of information and advice on this topic, so you will most definitely be able to gain some insight by reading through that info.

Cheers
