    The key to a successful eBay selling is simple -- Sell products that people actually want.

    Selling on eBay is not as easy as some portray. In fact, go to eBay and check out the number of auctions that end without a single bid. Competition is getting tough, as more sellers go to eBay; even the big boys are joining in the eBay marketplace. Add to that the increasing listing and final value fees.

    eBay has several ways for you to determine exactly what the hot items to sell on their marketplace:

    Items In Demand = the most popular items currently within that particular category. To see the In Demand page, go to http://pages.ebay.com/sellercentral/sellbycategory...

    Hot Items by Category Report = a monthly report that lists the fastest growing categories on eBay for the previous month. Go to http://pages.ebay.com/sellercentral/whatshot.html and select "Hot Items by Category" from the menu on the left.

    eBay Pulse = "a daily snapshot of current trends, hot picks, and cool stuff on eBay". Go to http://pulse.ebay.com/ to see eBay Pulse in action.

    Merchandising Calendar = eBay promotes specific categories on its home page each month. Savvy eBayers know that this home page exposure results in more interest in such categories. Go to http://pages.ebay.com/sellercentral/calendar.html to view the current Merchandising Calendar.

    Interestingly, the product that sells maximum on eBay could be the worst product to sell on eBay. Since it sells so well, there's a always more competition to sell than to buy. So, identify your own strength, your locational advantage, if any, etc., and sell an exclusive product (if it has market demand, which you can find from overture no. of searches, etc.). The advantage is, you can dictate the price if it has demand and little supply. All the best!

    That is how wholesale business works. You sell more items for less profit. But there is no one stopping you from selling your playstation 3 for $599.99 and making $188.00 profit on it. But there maybe others on eBay who would be selling the same product for $500.00 or even less than that, how would you compete with them? You may also want to consider what is the retail price of playstation 3 at this time. Is it selling for $599.99 at Best Buy also? If yes, then who would go and buy it from you? You are not giving any incentive to the buyer and you would ask them to pay for shipping and also wait for the playstation to arrive.

    I used to do selling on Ebay, any kinds of items. So far, cellphones and laptops are the ones that people look and buy. Cheap and of good quality. They sell so quick.

    You can do resell. Buy some good cellphones and unlock them and resell it thru Ebay.

    old motorcycle or car parts--have a friend that buys junked out motorcycles --tears them down and and sells all the parts. people will buy even the parts that he tells them do not work. the last one he bought for 75.00 and had made over 2500.00 by the time he sold the last part.. he does it in his spare time.
