Best Selling Items on eBay & How to Make Money With Them – Very Few People Are Using This Strategy

If you want to start a successful business on on-line that’s quick and easy. You need to find the best selling items on eBay and then profit from other people’s mistakes.

This sounds terrible doesn’t it? Profiting from other people’s mistakes. However, this is something countless people just like you are doing around the world and making full time incomes out of it.

Let me show you a strategy that just works, plain and simple:

1. Head over to eBay pulse and find the most searched for items in each category. This smart little tool also shows you the most popular stores for each category too if you wanted to reverse engineer any of them to find out what they’re doing. I digress.

2. Click on the category drop down list and we’ll use an example. Let’s use “clothing, shoes & accessories” the ladies favorite and we’re presented with a list like this:

1. Coach

2. Chanel

3. Handbags

4. Rings

5. Ed Hardy

6. Shoes

7. Burberry

8. Gucci

9. Bebe

10. Coach Handbags

I’ll think you’ll agree that this is quite a generic list and far too general. Click on the drop down menu again and we’ll choose “women’s handbags & bags” category. This is the list:

1. Coach

2. Chanel

3. Gucci

4. Marc Jacobs

5. Prada

6. Juicy Couture

7. Burberry

8. Guess

9. Balenciaga

10. Kate Spade

Do you notice #6 Juicy Couture? This looks like a nice niche item with tons of popular searches for it. Click on the Juicy Couture link and we’ll be taken over to the live auction for these items.

Now, to find the best selling items on eBay for this category we need to click on the “completed listings” tab. Note: you’ll need to be logged in to use this function. Congratulate yourself, you’ve now got a list of the best selling items by date, time and price sold.

What Can You Do With This Information?

Simply use the “swipe and list method” which is the technique of bidding and purchasing items quite late at night or in the early hours of the morning when there’s little competition. Trust me here, you can get items as cheap as 40-50% lower than what they should sell for if you know what you’re doing. This is simple buy low and sell high stuff.

Simply re-list the item once you’ve received delivery and make sure you end the auction on a Sunday evening which statistically is the time where you get the most bids.

If you’re in a niche where it’s still quite competitive and there are lost of similar items, I’d start the bidding really low, say $1 and list the item on either 7 -10 auction. By the time it comes to the last day, you’ll have plenty of bids and people will be attracted to your auction like flies on (sheep). This is a a nice little technique I use to gather lots of interest.

What also happens is eBay will complete the automated task of emailing each potential buyer on a regular basis telling them to up their bids. Quite nice to have a helping hand from eBay I think.

These are just some of the tricks and tips of selling items on eBay for profit. There’s a lot more, but far too many to mention in this short article.

Save Money Buying Designer Inspired Handbags

When my niece gave my sister-in-law her Christmas wish list my sister-in-law said she held her breath. My niece is at that age where she wants shoes and handbags and clothes. She doesn’t have much idea of the cost of things, or if she does, she doesn’t care. I do know all about buying clothing, handbags and shoes. My sister-in-law asked for my help. She says I know where to go to get fabulous trendy celebrity inspired handbags and fashions for a fraction of the cost of the originals.

At least my niece isn’t stuck on designer names when it comes to handbags. She says things like “Mom, I want an orange hobo” or “I’d like a black satchel.” She doesn’t insist on Prada or Coach or L.A.M.B. because she knows my brother and sister-in-law would never spend that much money on a handbag for her.

I’ was able to help my sister-in-law find some great online sources for celebrity and designer inspired handbags. She’d never heard of designer inspired handbags before. What designer inspired means is that manufacturers take the best design element from the designer bag and re-work it into another bag. Talk about affordable designer handbags! It’s wonderful to see a true designer handbag for less than $200. One of my favorite affordable and trendy handbag styles is from Melie Bianco. Melie Bianco handbags have been featured in magazines such as Life & Style, Self and People Magazine.

It seems that Melie Bianco became popular when one of the bags was carried on the MTV reality show Laguna Beach and they’ve really caught on. Since then they’ve become a hit with celebrities like Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Kelly Osborne.

Melie Bianco’s mission is to supply chic affordable handbags. They do this by using the highest quality faux leathers, quality lining materials and hardware. They offer a wide range of styles for every woman, and girl, of every age. Melie Bianco’s designs come in almost every imaginable handbag style, clutches and satchels, hobos, and shoulder bags. Nylon, canvas and buttery faux woven leather, patent leather are also available. Handbags are also available in croc and python as well as animal prints such as giraffe and zebra.

Another great feature of some of the online sources is that they let you search handbags by style or fabric, size, price, color and by celebrity sighting.

Along with Melie Bianco there are many other great designers such as Nicole Lee, Ed Hardy, Besso, Christine Price, Chinese Laundry and Roxbury. Bags such as the Nicole Lee Multi Colored Croc Tote and the Jessica Simpson Glazed Delia Shopper are made with quality synthetic leather which means these handbags are extremely affordable for everyone.

Ultimately my sister-in-law decided on a Primo Limited Medium Loft Tote for my niece. This is a designer inspired handbag which resembles a classic Balenciaga Motorcycle bag. The cost is only $50.00. She thought the price was so reasonable she bought one for herself too!
