Choosing What To Sell
From past experience I have seen that customers like to buy from people who have established themselves with a particular product. Though you can sell anything your heart desires, you are better off picking a particular niche or product from which you will sell with. For example, you could choose to sell sporting goods. You can sell all sorts of sporting goods and gain a reputation. You will start seeing your sales grow and you will make a lot of money online.

TIP: To fin the types of products that are selling well on eBay, search for ended listings. This will give you a good idea of what we call “hot products”.

CAUTION: When you decide to sell a product, make sure it is a well known brand that people trust and is already selling well. This will make thing easier for you.

After you have decided on a product, find a supplier (usually not on eBay) where you can get the same products for a competitive price, so that you can sell it online and gain a decent profit. You can check other websites or local listings for a supplier.

Dealing with suppliers
Wholesalers and Drop shipments are the two most widely used sources of stock. It’s up to you which method you chose but let me explain a bit from both

Wholesalers: Wholesalers require you to buy in bulk and once you buy, you have to have a place to keep it. Before you actually buy the item, you have to have a place to keep it. Maybe a garage or a small warehouse will do. You will also have to have the money upfront.

Dropshippers: The difference between drop shippers and wholesalers is that drop shippers keep the stock for you and you only pay them when a customer pays you. The downside of this kind of arrangement is in order for the shippers to minimize risk, they usually ask you to pay to join this kind of scheme

After making sales
Once you have found people interested in buying your products, make sure your shipments are on time and there is no damage to the goods. This will boost your reputation and you are well on your way to becoming a PowerSeller.
