Hi abdussamad90,

Here are ways to find out what is selling well at eBay UK:

1) Check out the popular searches and most popular products on eBay UK:
Link hidden: Login to view
Popular searches: Link hidden: Login to view
Best selling products: Link hidden: Login to view
eBay pulse: Link hidden: Login to view

2) Perform completed listings searches for products or brand names to see the conversion rate and average selling price.

To do a completed listings search, simply click the Advanced Search button next to the main eBay search box. Enter your search keywords as usual, and then check the Completed Listings box. Hit search and you'll see historical data for the previous 30 days. Successful items are in green; unsuccessful items are in red.

Please note that what is popular does not mean it will be the easiest to sell, because it is possible for a highly popular product to be over saturated and you will be facing a lot of competition. With the tools I have shared with you, it could help you get ideas on what niche product to get into. :)

Let us know once you have decided on a product to resell and we will help gather suppliers for you.

Hope that helps :) Let us know if there is anything else we can do to assist you.

Hi abdussamad90,

Once you've decided on what to sell, it's time to start researching suppliers. This is where SaleHoo comes in. :) Use the Directory search box to look for the product(s) you want to sell. I helped search for UK based suppliers you can use - Link hidden: Login to view and Link hidden: Login to view

When you've found some suppliers who fit the bill, send them an email to ask for the best possible price that they can give you for the products you wish to resell.

Once you get approved to resell their items, you can then sell them using a selling platform of your choice - list them at your chosen auction site, or at your own online store. :)

If you need help on the basics of selling at eBay, there's a compilation of useful information to guide you at Link hidden: Login to view

Hope this helps. And let us know if there's anything else we can do to assist you.

We wish you the best!


Irene
