Do you like to fix old TVs? Maybe not, but many people do. Think of all the garage sales where people buy items because they want to fix them up or restore them. This same idea can be applied to EBay. You can sell broken and old items on EBay. People will buy them!
If you do sell items that have wear and tear just make sure you let people know that the item is broken or used. You would be amazed at what people will buy. For example, one lady sold 6 half used lipsticks for $53. Don’t look at your old stuff as “junk”, but as “treasures”. When they are “things” no one wants them, but when they are called “items” everybody wants them.
So where should start when looking for items to sell on EBay?
Everything you own, regardless of their condition, has cash value. Everybody has something that they can sell. Look through your attic. Look through your closet. Look in your garage. Every area has items that you no longer need. You can sell these things on EBay.
Some of the items sold on EBay are crazy. One person sold a cane that was supposedly haunted by it previous owner. Guess how much the cane was sold for? $65,000! Another person sold an empty bottle of cologne for $32!
You can also go to garage sales and thrift stores to find products to sell. This can be in addition to selling items that you already have.
How do you start selling on EBay? You need to “list” your item. Listing your item is a simple process.
Note that you only get 55 characters for your listing title. Grammar is irrelevant. However, spelling is critical! If you spell things incorrectly then people can’t find it.
The title you put in your listing has a huge affect on the number of people that view your website. For example, a poor listing title can only bring in 2,000 views while the correct listing title can bring in 12,000 views.
There are more steps to follow that you should learn from an EBay guru. You can also peruse top power sellers on EBay and see how they set up their listings.
