How to research wholesale products to sell

 

Step 1:

Consider demand

While you may like matcha powder and chia seeds, that doesn’t mean everyone does. Selling an item that you find interesting is never the way to go when it comes to running an eCommerce store. The best way to figure out what will sell online, is by looking at popular trends. Amazon has a “Best Sellers” page where you’re able to find out what’s selling the best on their site. eBay also has a “Trending” page which allows you to see what’s doing well on their site. But the easiest way is to search SaleHoo’s Market Research Lab, which pulls data from Amazon, eBay, and more!

Step 2:

Consider margin

After you’ve picked out a trending item to sell, you’ll need to make sure you’re going to get the best bang for your buck. Remember: You’re going to have to pay packing fees as well as eBay fees when selling items. You can get around the packing fees if you’re drop shipping your items, but even if you’re using Amazon or Etsy, there are going to be small fees for selling on their site. Price accordingly to ensure that you’re getting what your product is worth!

Step 3:

Consider competition

Drones are quite popular nowadays, aren’t they? With popularity comes demand, but with demand comes competition. When multiple people sell the same product, they may fall into a web of price wars. Everyone will try to give their customers the best price and you may find yourself selling items at a low cost just to get noticed. If there’s too much competition, it may be a good idea to stay away. If your competitors are still beating you with sales, check out this article to see if your eCommerce store needs a little TLC.

Step 4:

Consider opportunity cost

If you decide to sell 3D printers, you’re missing out on selling wooden sunglasses or anything else that’s not related to your main product. Of course, you can always create a generalist store - but then you would be missing out on the authority and trust that comes from being a specialist. So pick something you’re willing to stick with!.
