  • If you are completely new to eBay and you don’t have any feedback on your account then getting some feedback before starting to sell anything is a good practice.
Why to have a feedback?

Now days people are very wary of buying stuff online, so if your account has zero feedback then no one’s is going to buy anything from you.

It’s recommended that you must have 15-20 feedbacks on your account before selling anything.

  • Many sellers leave positive feedback to you when you will make payment.
  • According to the world’s richest man Jeff Besos, you should always start with small and slowly develop that and make it large. Here also you have to do the same thing.

Most of the eBay resellers buy a wholesale stock of any particular product then sell it on eBay at a retail price. But many of us don’t have that much capital initially or we don’t have that much amount of money to buy bulk of products in one go. So, find some unwanted items present in your house which are in good condition and make a list of them.

  • Now you have a list of item you want to sell, but first research about the market. You must ensure that there is a market for the items you want to sell.
