  • Hi Mike,
     
    Reading through the website and brainstorming product ideas is a really good start.
     
    Since you are leaning towards physical items, let me give you a few tips:
     
    1. Unless you are selling accessories or smaller items, always sell name brand product.  Accessories for phones, PDAs, camcorders, electronics, car audio, etc do not need to be name brand, as at that point, they are just looking for a good deal. 
     
    Regarding most all other product, though, name brand is the best avenue.  Why?  Because I have sold both name brand and non-brand and there is a big difference.  Name brand is solid, in that it is always consistant in being proportional to the original price.  Non-brand is like the waves of the sea and could be half the value in a couple months.
    For example.  Lets say a Sony PS2 costs $250 originally in stores.  Now, its a few years later, so the value is about $80 on ebay.
     
    Basically, the first year, it cuts the price 40% to 50% on ebay.  So, $200 in a store, a year later on ebay is about $120 for name brand item.  And about 3 years is $80 on ebay. 
     
    It has a predictable scale.  Also, you can easily do searches on ebay history to know its current value.  Here is an example search:
     
     
    This pretty much goes for most name brand product.
     
    AND, I can show you were to buy the name brand product for very cheap, where you generally atleast make double what you paid, sometimes triple. 
     
    My website discusses it alot here:
     
     
     
    One of the main companies I bought from in the past when buying name brand product for around 25% of the retail price (75% off):
     
     
    Unfortunately, you have to sign a contract & get a username and passowrd with them before you can even see the lists/manifests for the pallets they are auctioning on a daily basis.
     
    If I were you, and you are serious about selling name brand items on ebay, I would sign the contract and get a username and password. 

    Here is an example manifest/list from one of the current pallets they are auctioning right now.  The "Cost" shown on the list, is the original wholesale price.  You will pay around 30% of this price, if you were to buy this pallet.  So, you times the overall cost by 0.3 to get a ball park of what you would pay.  Of course, it is an auction, so it could be lower or higher than 30%.  This pallet list below, by the way, is an expensive one with TONS of stuff on it.  Imagine a pallet full of small expensive items like camcorders:

    Regarding non-branded items.  I have sold HUNDREDS of items, possibly several hundred of big non-branded, around $80 to $250 dollar items.  Now, I can tell you, from all that experience, that they are predictable only for a short period of time. 
     
    For instance, I have a bunch of electric guitars I sell.  The guitars I am selling right now on ebay, I am selling for about HALF what I used to sell them for about 2 years ago.  This is no joke.  Right now, I am selling them at cost, because of this slip in price.
     
    So, before, when I could sell a guitar for $160, now, I am lucky if I can get $90 fo it.  A very serious problem. 
     
    I believe I know why this occurred.  I noticed all the name brand guitar companies are now shipping their production overseas and are changing their marketing strategy to sell their guitars in stores like Best Buy and other chain stores.  So, instead of charging $350 for a Fender in a small guitar shop, now, they charge $175 in Best Buy.
     
    Its because they are using cheaper labor and need to increase their sales to make the same amount of profit.
     
    Of course, I bought my guitars from China also, as they do, matter of fact, one of my suppliers makes them for Fender and other companies..  He he..
     
    At any rate, now, I have no advantage, as now Fender is doing what I did, so now my guitars are also half the value they once were.
     
    So, there is some predictability of the value, but the problem is it is unstable and general market flucuation can destroy the value.
     
    Of course, if you sell an old Fender guitar, its still proportional to the old price, for the most part, as people still consider it of the same value.  The original retail price dictates its life value..
     
     
    Sincerely
    Tony
