Hot tips help you make more money than current eBay sellers!

Dec 9th 2012 at 3:52 AM

Did you know eBay and other online marketplaces are thriving and e-Commerce and online sales are growing at a rapid rate, with experts predicting future growth levels to spike even further? You’ll find some statistics here:

· Online retail sales are growing three times faster than regular retail sales - and that's despite the economic downturn

· On eBay, a pair of shoes sells every 4 seconds

· Every 18 seconds, a GPS device sells on eBay

· And every 6 seconds, a cell phone sells on eBay

Do you want to find out about eBay's consistently popular categories? Just look at this compiled hot list to show you what's profitable on eBay, season after season, year after year. 1. Clothing, shoes and accessories

Clothing is such an exciting category to get involved in as it encompasses so many niches such as plus size gym wear, novelty underwear, and comfort shoes. Clothing is also easy to sell and ship, and best of all, there will always be a demand for clothing. 2. Collectibles

eBay is without a doubt the world's most popular place to buy and sell collectible items. Collectibles can include antique items, baseball cards, posters, medals and war artifacts, comics and branded items like Coca Cola and much more. Tip: Visit yard and estate sales for arbitrage items which you can buy very cheaply and sell on to make a pretty profit. 3. Electronics

These ares possibly the most competitive, yet potentially profitable markets on eBay – particularly when it comes to items such as iPods and mobile phones.

Consider supplementing your product range with accessories such as iPod skins, spare cords, or hands free kits for mobile phones.

4. CDs and DVDs

Did you know that eBay sells over 1 million DVDs and CDs and each month? However, for every one million sold, there are around 2 million listed. Yip, you guessed it, this is another highly competitive market.

The trick to making it in DVDs and CDs is to niche it up – go outside of mainstream movies and TV series', or music albums and find a new niche market like exercise DVD's, classic films or learning languages. 5. Gaming systems

Many gaming enthusiasts use eBay to buy and sell their games and gaming systems. A typical gamer will buy the latest system, play it for 8 hours a day for four weeks then sell it on and find something new to entertain them, which means there is always an abundance of buyers on the hunt for a new system to entertain them.

6. Healthy and Beauty

There are so many items within the Health and Beauty market: weight loss supplements, anti-aging creams and vitamins, hair care, dental care and makeup (nail polish,lip gloss, lip stick, lip balm, concealer, powder, etc.), then there is perfume and cologne, moisturizer, eye cream, microdermabrasion kits, hair and makeup brushes and applicators, hair removal kits or razors and shaving creams, manicure kits, eyelash curlers, tweezers and much more!

7. Baby Gear

From toys to feeding equipment and strollers, baby gear is a highly profitable eBay market. Like clothing, there will always be a market for baby equipment and with the huge costs associated with bringing up a baby, it's no wonder parents turn to buying online to find bargains and save themselves some money. Hot Tip: While brand-name items are top sellers in health and beauty, be very wary of Chinese suppliers offering these items very cheaply – they are likely to be fake and eBay cracks down very hard on anyone selling these.

You might already know a good supplier for some of these markets, but if you’re at a loss, would recommend that you grab yourself the SaleHoo directory here http://tinyurl.com/cnkz9sw which lists a lot of suppliers, both for niche products and those more mainstream markets.
