Find Winning Products to Sell

Once you are done setting up your account you can begin listing your items. It is better to focus on one niche instead of listing random items from different categories. For example, instead of selling random sports equipment, it can be more beneficial to focus on a single category like golf equipment.

Specializing in a single niche helps build your brand, increases trust among your customers, and allows you to rank high in search results for your niche. See more...

Take Crisp, Professional-looking Pictures

You don’t need expensive camera equipment and unnecessary lights to take professional photos. In most cases, all you need is a mobile device with a decent camera. Keep your product at the correct distance from your phone, switch to portrait mode if you want, and make sure the room has good lighting. See more...

Optimize your Item Listing

Once you have figured out what you want to sell, it’s time to put it out there. The presentation of your product is just as important, if not more important, than the quality of your product. Since customers can only judge your product from the listing they see online, it is important you properly optimize your product.

Optimizing your product listing also helps you rank higher on eBay search results and gives your store a more professional look. You need to make sure you have an adequate title, high-quality images, and a detailed description. See more...

Add Shipping Details

Adding decent shipping services to your product will mean that more people will be able to buy it. eBay allows you to set up an elaborate shipping system based on your individual preferences. See more...

Promote Listing and Set Preferences

eBay offers its users an easy way to promote their listings without filling out any forms or registering anywhere. However, promoting listings is not the best option for all listings. For low-priced products or used items, it’s often a good idea to not promote the listing. See more...

Communicating With Your Customers

Once customers start ordering your item, you can begin communicating with them. Good communication helps build trust and ensure that customers have a pleasant experience. This means the customer will shop with you again and even leave good feedback on the listing. See more...

Providing a Tracking number to your buyer

Once you have shipped the product, it is important to inform the customer of the tracking number. See more...
