Ok so I'm new to the whole selling thing so any advice would really help. I'm in college and I don't have a lot of money however I have some. I want to find something, anything, that I can sell online and make a decent amount of money on. I'm having trouble finding wholesalers that I could compete with ebay. Ebay is really the only source I know about for selling, and wanted to start my adventure through them. I'm going through financial difficulties so if anyone could give me a shortcut or advice (Not trying to sound lazzy or selfish) I would really appreciate it..
THANKS

Hi Braddj,

Will this be your first time selling? If it is, why not try selling a few of your old things just to get a chance to get your feet wet and see which products may be promising. Since you are planning on selling on eBay, selling old things or second stuff is a good way to build feedback. Customers/buyers often prefer sellers with a good feedback to back their reputation.

Plus this may also help you earn/save money to be able to afford more wholesale products.

Here are some products we have found to have good profit margins:

- Clothing
- Skin care (e.g. anti-ageing & acne treatment)
- Vacation-related items (swimsuits, crocs, sunblock)
- Homewares (towels, sheets)
- Accessories for electronics
- Crafts & hobby items
- Sporting goods
- Computers & computer parts
- Auto & motorbike
- Unique items/collectibles

You can also try the following to find out which products sell really well on eBay -

1) Check out the popular searches and most popular products on eBay:
