Hope someone can help me out here. I am looking to buy and resell designer goods like sunglasses, watches, handbags etc... There are lots of good sites from Salehoo that have great prices, but I still cannot beat eBay!

Where do these people get their products? How can they consistently sell for 10% of the RRP and be making a profit? I have done a lot of research, found a couple different items that I am selling for a decent profit but don't think the products will be in demand very long. I want to stay ahead of the game!

Any suggestions? Please ask me questions if you need more information, and I apologize if I posted this in the wrong section.

Thanks in advance!

'Wholesale Myth: Ebay is the best place to sell your wholesale goods'

Now this is a particularly popular one. As the world's biggest marketplace, eBay has made its fair share of millionaires. What you don't hear about so commonly, is all the people who struggle to make a profit from eBay because 100 other people are selling the exact same products - for more competitive prices.

This is not a new situation. Supermarkets and large discount stores often run at a loss on some items in order to attract more customers. For small or new sellers, this is a deadly scenario.

The fact is, eBay is simply too competitive in some categories. Electronics, jewelry, designer clothing and computer games are all dangerous territory for the new seller. You won't stand a chance against established sellers who've already got a strong following and highly competitive prices.

So what should you do? If your product falls into these or any other highly competitive category, I recommend shifting your focus to less competitive markets such as selling through classified newspapers in your local area.

While you won't be reaching audiences of the size that online auctions sites such as eBay provide, buyers that use these alternative mediums to purchase goods are 9 out of 10 times more likely to pay significantly more for products. Not only will your margins can be much higher, you'll also have far less competition to deal with.

It's also a good idea to try using eBay international sites such as Link hidden: Login to view or Link hidden: Login to view , as well as other auction sites with less competition such as Link hidden: Login to view and Link hidden: Login to view . I find that these sites give consistently higher margins compared to eBay US, and the number of buyers is still very high.

There's a phrase I live by when it comes to Internet marketing. Selling on Ebay is no different then trying to sell something offline. It takes marketing.

Keep this Phrase in mind.. Differentiate or Die

People will pay more and buy from you if you show good qualities such as cutomer service yes. But at the same time first impressions are everything. When preparing your listing for ebay look at other listings selling the same thing as you. What are they not doing that as a customer you look for in a listing? What are they doing that seems to work / sell products? Take all those things and write them down. Then add a creative twist to it..... ie. Video would be a great addition to an auction listing and can be accomplished very easily.

Patience is a virtue
