Finding Products To Sell On eBay

How to find products to sell on eBay is the most common question I get from my readers. This page has links to all the articles and reports I've written about finding eBay products.

If you are looking for products to sell without thinking about the people who will buy them, you are setting yourself up for failure. Don't make the mistake of looking for hot products, but instead look for groups of rabid buyers you can offer many items.

Before we get started, most of the articles linked below have links back to this article in the PS below my signature. If I overlooked adding link, you can use your back button to return to this page.

Lets get started on your product sourcing education. . .

Concentrate on PEOPLE not Products

  • Identifying eBay Products People Want answers the question "How do I identify groups of people who want to purchase items?" It's the first article in a series designed to change your thinking from products to people.
  • Finding eBay Products By Finding People is the second article in the series, and explains how to find people with products you can sell on eBay.
  • Selecting Profitable eBay Niches is an interview I did with Michael Holland. The interview explains how to research, select and market to small groups of people called niches. After reading this interview you will start thinking of yourself as a seller to groups of people rather than as a seller of a group of products. This change in attitude will result in higher sales because you'll find it easier to match products to people.
