Updated: Dec 3, 2019

Starting on eBay? Explore this 5-part series for our beginners! (Part 1)

Ready to sell? Start with what’s inside your house, your apartment, or even your dorm room! Following the Marie Kondo movement, the first step that can be taken is as simple as tidying up. Find items that no longer bring you joy and put them on eBay. Have you outgrown your clothing, have textbooks you no longer use from college, or have items (in good condition) that your children no longer use? You can start getting familiar with how eBay works by selling items you already own. Sell items that are not limited to one category or brand. This provides your store with wider exposure to different customers who might be interested in the other items you're selling. As of July 2019, there are 182 million global active eBay users. This is a massive audience.

The top selling category on eBay is electronics & accessories at 16.4%. (Edison Trends, 2019)

If you don't think you have anything interesting to sell, don't cut yourself short. Just know that the very first item sold on eBay was a broken laser pointer. (Time, 2015)
