7. Running a Business on eBay > 92. Find a Market

Find a Market

Research sales trends and find out what to sell and when to sell it.

Most sellers come to eBay when they’ve got some stuff to sell, but if you’re running a business on eBay, you’ve likely cleaned out your own attic by now. The next step, of course, is to find something new to sell.

There are two basic approaches: buy products inexpensively for the purpose of reselling on eBay for a profit, or sell other people’s stuff for a percentage of the profits. To pursue either course, you’ll need to know what’s currently selling well on eBay.

Find Out What’s Hot

While you may be intimately acquainted with a particular market on eBay, such as hand-painted clogs or wind-up walking sushi, there’s no reason you couldn’t branch out and start selling other kinds of things.
