What Are the Wholesale Items To Sell On Ebay?

[LoginRadius_Share]

Wholesale is a difficult topic for many people but can be a lucrative source of item income if sourced correctly. You are basically buying items in bulk from a supplier with the hope of reselling your items to customers at a higher price.

It should be mentioned that in certain states in the US, you are required to have a business license to properly buy from a wholesaler. If you are interested in wholesale as a source for your items, we suggest checking to see what is required in your state or region.

Secondly, I need to mention that with wholesale, items may not be top quality. You must question the reason why a seller would have an item in bulk that sells well but they would rather sell them to you instead of doing what you are planning to do and selling directly to the customer. Sometimes items are being sold wholesale because the sellers simply have too many items or their operation is not setup to sell directly to consumers.

There may be also other reasons such as the items are shelf pulls, or customer returns or have been declared defective. Often a wholesaler will not be the original manufacturer, so the items sold may have passed through a second or third party.

If you are trying to buy an item that a wholesaler claims to be popular you will still need to do your own research. Inspect and verify that the items are working and they are something that you would be comfortable selling to your customer base.

So what are the best kinds of wholesale items to sell?

Electronic items whether wholesale or not can have many unforeseen issues that would warrant a customer return. These issues could be the fault of the manufacturer or just wear and tear. To maintain high feedback while selling wholesale items, you should shift your attention more towards accessories that supplement popular products, and not the electronics themselves.

Every time you get a new phone, one of the first things that many consumers do is get a carrying case or two. Non electronic accessories are at a lower risk of returns as there are less problems that can occur.

If you have decided to pursue wholesale electronics regardless of the possible shortfalls, be sure to quality test these items by requesting a sample to test. Obtain as much information about the items as possible, because buying electronics in bulk can leave you heavily invested in your stock, with higher risk than necessary.

I would suggest sticking to small function electronics such as digital watches or simple gadgets. Regardless of where you obtain your items from, the customer is placing their trust in you to supply a quality end product. Part of your mission in selling online is to make a profit, but you are also given the added benefit to help others with their needs and wants.
