What to Sell on eBay, and What not to Sell
- Can you get a clear, professional looking image of your product? Can you get the
manufacturer's image? Can you scan the item, so it looks crisp? Or can you take a clean
digital picture? A picture really is worth a thousand words. A good picture can increase
bids by 10 percent and final price by 12 percent. In short, it's well worth the price!
Other tips: be sure to emphasize in copy if an item is smaller than it appears in the
picture or if the color is slightly off. Make up in words what the picture may distort.
- Is the product is easy to store and ship? There's a reason why the U.S. Postal Service
asks you whether an item is fragile, perishable, liquid or hazardous, they cause
problems in transit. In short, it's best to steer clear from highly fragile items as you'll
only cause more work for yourself, not only in terms of storage, but in client complaints
and filing insurance claims if they break in transit. If your product is perishable, you'll
need a cool, dry place to store them, you'll have to sell them quickly and you may have
to insure them in transit for such things as melting. If your product is too big, you may
not have space to store them in your home, let alone a box to ship them.
- Will the product fit into an envelope or box you have available (preferably a FREE USPS or
UPS box)? Some products are awkward in size or are too heavy to make them a viable
product option for you to sell on eBay because of shipping costs. You might blow all
your profits searching for a box that will fit and in paying for extra packing materials or
outrageous postage to deliver the product to your client. If your product is heavy, try a
flat rate envelope or box before you abandon the idea.
If you've answered Yes, to the questions in the previous pages, you just may have a product
that's "eBayable." Congratulations! You have merchandise to sell on eBay.
