Default Product help

Hi guys, basically, I’m really struggling to find a product to sell, I feel really inspired after reading the stealth guide and browsing the forum, and genuinely really want to give the ebay business go.

The problem I have is finding a profitable item to sell, even if the item only generates a small amount, I’d be happy as a start. I don’t want to go down the vero path and so only really want to sell non branded items. I’ve spent a lot of time browsing through the well established wholesalers (DHgate, Alibaba, Aliexpress), but still haven’t really found anything worth purchasing

. Maybe I’m not looking through the right categories, or maybe Im not scaling enough (looking at spending enough money).

Im not expecting people to just start naming products, just hopefully some advice to point me in the right direction. Will really appreciate any replies.

Look for an area that interests you and that you already have knowledge about and find things in that area to sell. Always the best way to start as a seller IMO.

Agree with James, look for products that you are well educated in or that you know well.

Agree with above two posters...half the battle in making money from eBay is coming up with things to sell that you are not in competition with 800 other sellers with. That only leads to ruthless price undercutting and no one makes any money in the end.

@Mike, takes a lot of time and research - have to find your niche. Other sellers here are unlikely to reveal their own niche because of profits to be made

Popular question that turns up rather often.

http://www.aspkin.com/forums/wholesa...wholesale.html

Older thread that outlines steps.

Key point is looking in an area of interest to yourself.

Thread is now in the sub forum where there are other threads with info.

Good Luck
