What To Sell On eBay? Sony Walkman

I get asked all the time, Darren, what should I sell on eBay? I always tell people, sell what you know, if you love baseball cards, sell cards, If you love collecting shark teeth, sell shark teeth.

But what if you really don't know what to sell or where to start?  I will be giving some helpful ideas on what to look for while out at garage sales, thrift stores or flea markets.

The other day I was at my local thrift store, and ran across this vintage Sony Walkman. People love to buy back memories, and the Walkman is one of those items.

Tip To Avoid Amazon Out Of Stocks

One of the biggest fears of drop shipping on eBay, is your supplier being out of stock when an item you have listed sold.

Ever get that sick feeling when you hear your phone "cha ching" you look at what you sold, and you pray it is not of stock when you go to place your order?

How Being Lazy Increased eBay Sales

For the last 14 years I have been selling on eBay, and I am always learning new techniques to increase sales.

The last 3 years I have been using the "drop shipping" method to sell, and have made some decent money, but have noticed a huge decline in sales over the last couple years.

I am constantly educating myself on how to improve sales on eBay by joining programs that teach drop shipping, reading articles ect.

One of the suggestions that the "trainers" taught was to list your items for 30 days, and at the end of the 30 days, if the item did not sell, use the "sell similar" option to relist the item. By doing that, it "reset " the history to that of a newly listed item, which in turn eBay would show that item higher in the search results. That made perfect sense.

So for 3 years I was doing that, but last year my sales declined over $90k from 2015 to 2016!!  So using the "sell similar" trick was not the answer.

In this video, I will explain to you why you should be very cautious, and probably consider taking down your listings if you have any listed on eBay.
