Where to Find Merchandise to Resell

When you put together your business plan, you indicated the type of business that you wanted to conduct. If you planned your eBay business around merchandise that you currently own or create yourself, you can skip this section.

Sourcing your inventory is one of the toughest tasks for high-volume eBay sellers. While the average eBay seller typically finds items in their own home or in garage sales, high-volume sellers have to find a constant supply of new merchandise.
