Hello dear Majk,

When you start seliing on ebay, you have a limit while you're in the way to become a power seller!..What I can give you as an advice is trying to list five products of different things that can expand your probabilities of a sale. When you start selling and listing, then ebay expand those 500 USD and give you the possibility to increase your sales limit!..do not give up, It could be kind of difficult to start because you start with 0 feedback but is not impossible if the product is valued for the costumer He will purchase it without any doubt. What you have to do is work with keywords and nice listing design to give your products visibility.

Hi Majk,

I think Luis has given some good advice there. Use this time to do a little market research with some products, don't worry too much about profit at this point.

List anything less than $5 or even less. Easy for customers to buy regardless of your feedback.

Hi

I have that off my chest :)

I hope you understand me because I don't speak English..

Which items are most sold on Ebay?
I have bad luck! Link hidden: Login to view have an online store and no sales. I have an online store on Ebay and sales are very slow ((1) a sale a month or none) and other stores Bonanza.com

I promote AdWords and Social Networks and any results ..

Because there are other online store successfully. I really do not know what to do ..

Suggestions welcome!

Hi Mayra,

It's natural to want to sell the most sought after items on eBay, but it's not always a good option for sellers to try. The problem you have is, all the hottest selling products are always the most competitive to try and sell. Being a hot selling item attracts the big sellers looking to cash in. So what you end up with is lots of big sellers, and by that I mean sellers who are cashed up and buying in large wholesale volume to secure the best possible price and then selling at a very skinny margin to create profit through high turnover (sales volume).

Of course someone using a dropship business model is always going to struggle to compete against that, it's just not possible in most, if not all cases.

So it's not always about what the hottest selling items are unless you have the cash resource to chase that market effectively.

Dropshipping tends to thrive in the not so hot selling items. Of course this means much slower sales, but the competition if usually much less because of the slow volume, so there is more clear air. The strategy that many use is to find products that fit into this type of category or niche market if you like, and then replicate that.

So the idea being that if you can find 10 or 20 slow moving products with low competition, then you total sales volume is where your margin is coming from.

A marketing technique I am a big fan of personally is "bundling" Doesn't work for everyone, really comes to down to matching closely associated items withe each other, but if you haven't read my post on this, I would suggest giving it a read and seeing if perhaps that is something you might try to increase your eBay sale.

Hello Mayra.

Your translation came through perfectly. Here is a link to a site that tracks most watched items on eBay.

As far as what to sell. Stay away from electronics unless you know the market. Too much competition.

Gourmet Food is a huge seller on eBay and Amazon. You can establish customers and treat them to good customer service you will build repeat business.

Find stuff around home. That old worn out cell phone was worthless to me. I sold it on eBay for $18.00(USD). I sold another older phone on Bonanza for $7.00(USD). You can't believe how much that junk in the closet is worth.

Mark's suggestion of bundeling is a great one. For example, mix accessories for an iPhone 6. One case, bluetooth earpiece, and a screen protector.

Another good seller is apparel. So what if it is last years style? Who will know or care?

Here is another great one. Find a need and meet it. Try to create your own product.

The point is to keep trying.

My best catagory for selling online is used working electronics. It is the only catagory where I have 100% sales.

I wish you success.
