Personally I find the best way to make profit on eBay is to sell products for more than you bought them for (after taking into accounts postage costs and fees ect). Works every time

On a somewhat more serious note, no one will give away their trade secrets. It takes days and months and years of research to find them. Do research, and then more research and then even more research until your eyes hurt from looking at your computer screen. When you have done that do a bit more research. More work you put into research the more you will get out of it.

I must frame your saying. Yes of course no-one would like to give their trade secrets around, but someone like you can encourage or give some point what to do. I have sold couple items related to gps navigation and almost did find my self into big trouble.

I did. Research.

Find an area that interests you. Research the hell of out it and find a way to make money from that area.

What to do is very simple. Its doing it that will take the time and it totally down to you. The more time you put into it the more you will get out of it.

And avoid Vero items.

The real question might be "what is not safe to sell on Ebay".
Lot of answer in the forum and, of course, VERO items, as JamesNorth101 said.

A lot of those people could well have the rights owner permission and have very good wholesaler contacts.

The sellers who sell the Chinese replicas do not last very long on eBay and always eventually land in trouble. Rightly so

I tried to contact manufacturer, but no answer at all, been waiting for ages. It just means time to start something else.

Find something not risky that you are comfortable with, as far as selling is concerned, and start from there.

Selling Vero is very tempting, but believe me you would be amazed on how many sellers I see on ebay got banned for it. 2 years ago that's what happened to me with my real account. Made some decent money for a good 2 month and bam got limited. Now I'm selling mostly generics and unique hand made items. It's all about doing research and finding a niche, you will start earning money eventually. Just keep at it and good luck.

But your original question is what to sell.

How do you know they are not getting into trouble?

No one is going to give you exact tips after working years to find products to sell and create competition for themselves.

I divide selling into the seasons and so time of year.

I looked at what I liked as interests, hobbies. Looked at the tastes of my family.

Found items that suited that.

Sell them.

I also love precious metals. Have a big market there.

Takes heaps of research, time & gambling.

you need lots of research, firstly take a topic that interests you, break it down and see if there is a market for it and if you can find a supplier to make money

a lot of people start by selling household junk and get ideas that way

The OP Did a "Houdini" on Us,,, Disappeared,,, just like a Fart in the wind,,,, Seems to me that all he really wanted to know was how to sell "China Specials" and Get away with it,,, I think he now knows that he is in the WRONG Place for that

Those are small trinket-like and are good to generate feedback.

Careful with branded health and beauty however
