What is the best selling item on eBay you ask?
I’m not going to play you out with lame ideas for eBay businesses that don’t work, or tell you to go out and research everything yourself. Nope, not here! All you need to know right now is that sunglasses are an easy money machine selling in eBay. Even with summer ending soon, sunglasses remain popular year round. I know you’ve probably seen a lot of articles like these throughout the years, but this isn’t your typical fake out. I’m going to tell you everything that I’ve done (recently) this past summer to buy a car, get my own place, and conquer eBay. https://elmundodeals.com
When people ask me “what is the best thing to sell on eBay”, I usually don’t tell them. I’ve decided to spill the beans on here now because I have moved on from eBay, and have started my own company. Why waste good advice when I can offer you (the people) great eBay tips for selling and the ability to make money?
So here’s what you do. Create an eBay account. If you don’t have one already it’s easy so I won’t explain it here. Now while creating your eBay account think of a business name you want to go by. Something catchy like shademebaby or whatever. It’s not a big deal if you don’t like it, because eBay lets you change your name after a month anyway. Also, most customers on eBay don’t care about your name and won’t repeat shop with you anyway.
Now I’m going to give you an eBayer ID I want you to look at, and copy as much as possible. They sell the most sunglasses on eBay, and are good at it. They sell like 10,000 pairs of sunglasses on eBay a month. The name is “SHARPKO”. Search for it on eBay and check out how he sells sunglasses, and see what his listings look like. This is going to come into play later when I tell you how to create your listings effectively.
Some other notes about your eBay account you should take into consideration is the following: setup your paypal account and link it to eBay. You’re going to need to create an eBay store at some point so look into that. It costs 16.00 a month.Don’t buy it yet though. If you’re not familiar with your eBay account you should be by now.
The next obvious step we have to take is to look for inventory to sell. Well, instead of sending you off and wishing you good luck on your search I’m going to provide a link to the best sunglasses wholesaler out there right now. Olympic Eyewear has the best quality sunglasses out of any other wholesaler website out there. Trust me, I went through this process already so I know first hand. If you want to search for your own wholesaler feel free. Simply type in wholesale sunglasses on Google and you’ll find plenty. Be warned though, other quality of sunglasses out there suck balls.
So now that you’re at Olympic eyewear’s website we need to focus on 3 brands. The DG sunglasses, XLoop sunglasses, and Aviators. These are the three most popular brands of sunglasses on eBay. Don’t bother with most of the other brands unless you see something you really like. Now depending on how much money you have, will depend on how much stock you buy. The average cost is around $30 a dozen per box. But, wait! Guess what? You can sell your sunglasses without buying them first. Here’s how…
Pick a group of 5-10 sunglass styles you like. Now right-click and save the images for the sunglasses. Now when you go and create listings on eBay, just use the stock images the website provides and “act” like you already have the sunglasses. Now, when you start selling them you can use the money other people pay you and use that to buy your inventory. Since Olympic Eyewear accepts paypal it makes it even easier. Words of caution though… you are not going to sell all 12 pairs of a certain style before you have to purchase them. So you’re going to have to pay some of it. Also, look at Olympic eyewears shipping times and see how long it’s going to take to arrive to your house. You don’t want to keep your eBay customers waiting or they will leave you negative feedback and ruin your eBay account. It took like 4 or 5 business days to reach me. As soon as they came to my house I shipped them out and it was never a problem.
