The Best Tricks to Make the Most Money on eBay

When it comes to buying rare things, you have two types of people: You have the sellers and you have the buyers. The sellers know exactly what it takes to get a rare item out there and selling it on eBay is a pretty easy task for them. The buyers, on the other hand, are the ones looking for those rare items, but it’s hard to find the right ones. It’s also even harder to make a lot of money on eBay when you’re not part of the sellers’ group.

While you’re never going to be able to get the perfect items, if you’re savvy about eBay, you can almost always get a great deal on stuff you need. And if you want to be one of the people who make a lot of money on eBay, you have to understand that this is the market. It's a jungle out there.

This stuff is cheap, but you have to work for it.

The thing that you need to focus on when you’re selling online is attracting buyers. The point is to make more money. With the right methods, you can make a fortune online selling stuff. Here are the best tips and tricks that you need to know.

Making money on eBay through eBay Inventories

On eBay, the inventory is one of the best ways to create more and more sales. This will get people attracted to your products. On the other hand, this is also the easiest way to attract buyers. The best method to do this is having inventory on eBay. You will be selling more if you have more and better products. So, if you have an eBay store, you need to set up an eBay Inventories page. This will help you get more potential buyers.

Listing your items in the right category

Listing your items in the right category

Each eBay item has a category, like "electronics" or "books." Each item must be placed in a specific category. For example, consider that a particular electronics listing must be for "working" items or for "repair" items.

You should also list your items in a category that reflects the marketplace. eBay allows sellers to set a suggested category for the items they are trying to sell. A good suggestion for "optimal search engine results" is to list in the category for the top-selling products. To find out which category to use, go to "Search by Category" and select your items by category.

Different Product Types

To maximize your chances of selling on eBay, you should place similar product listings in the same category.

Adding photos to your listing

Adding photos to your listing

You've shopped around, checked other sellers' items for signs of quality, weighed the relative value of a bid, and determined that an eBay auction is the best, most profitable way to get your package home. That's great! But have you actually uploaded your photos to eBay yet?

There are a few simple things you can do to boost your listings, and photos are a big part of the puzzle. The process for uploading photos is very straightforward, though a little bit technical. It involves three separate processes:

Uploading a JPEG in a Word Document, transferring it to your new eBay files folder, and renaming the document. This is basically done by clicking on a File, then saving, as shown in the screenshot below:

Read on to learn these great eBay secrets.

All of these eBay tips and tricks are legit, but you should always call your local authorities before making any sort of transaction.

Or, as my dad used to say, “Let's call the cops and find out how to do this the right way.”

Be careful. If you sell on eBay, you could get ripped off!

1. Make the Buyer “Drop Down a Payment.”

Put yourself in the buyer's shoes.

How much cash do you have on you? A hundred bucks? A fifty? A hundred?

You can put this money in your PayPal account and do the transaction there. Or you can do it via PayPal.

Understanding shipping costs

Understanding shipping costs

According to the eBay Manufacturers' Program, they can vary between 15% and 27% of the final retail cost of a product. Each item is sold on a case-by-case basis and companies get the difference between the sale price and shipping cost. That means the more you spend on shipping, the less you will make.

Spending less on shipping means higher profit margins

Savings on shipping reduce the total cost of your product. Since you're not paying for shipping, you're able to put more money toward your profit margin.

How do you save on shipping costs? The best trick is to set your product listing to include shipping costs. This will allow the shipping costs to appear in your listing and then remind you when you are about to make a final decision on whether to buy.
