eCommerce eBay & Amazon Online tips
Introduction to eBay
eBay is another online giant. eBay started as an auction marketplace, it now provides millions of products direct to consumers on a “buy it now” basis with a fixed price. Similar to Amazon, eBay allows third-party sellers to sell through auction listings, buy it now listings, or online shops.
Countries where eBay operates:
US, Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Australia, Japan, China, Korea, Hong Kong, Malaysia, India, Singapore, Taiwan, Belgium, Ireland, Russia, Czech Republic, Spain, Denmark, Israel, Sweden, France, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Luxembourg, Turkey, Netherlands, Norway, Poland and UK.
How to Sell on eBay
There are a few requirements for selling on eBay.
First, you must have an active eBay account, in good standing, linked to a verified PayPal account, with at least 10 feedback points. You must also meet the selling requirements for any eBay websites and marketplaces you want your listing to appear on.
Fees for selling on eBay come in three flavors:
An insertion fee cost to list the item of $0.30 — this doesn’t apply to the first 50 items you list in a month.
When the item sells you will pay 10% of the final value (including shipping) to eBay as a fee.
Finally, if you list internationally you will be charged an additional $0.10 – $0.50 per item.
What Wholesale Products to Sell on Amazon and eBay?
This is the million-dollar question — what exactly should you sell? 123 LiQuidation gives you access to over many wholesale products to sell on Amazon and eBay, so how do you find the perfect ones for your customers? Fortunately, it’s not as hard as it seems — it’s just going to need some work, and some research.
Market Research, Validation, and Competition
Before you start selecting, sourcing, and buying products, you must first prove that the product will sell. You don’t want a warehouse full of 15,000 blue widgets, when the current season’s trend is for green ones.
Start by researching the existing market for the niche and products you want to go into.
For Amazon, useful tools include:
On eBay, you can use:
We can’t stress this enough — of all the tasks you’re going to do for your e-commerce business, this is one of the most important, by far.
Getting your market research wrong can be very costly. Make sure you put plenty of time into researching the products that sell.
Make a spreadsheet of how many other sellers are offering these or similar products (they’re your competitors). Record their sales ranking, pricing, and any other information you can gather.
By the end of this phase you should have an idea of the niches you can sell in, and a shortlist of a few products you can research. We recommend coming away from this step with around 2 – 4 niches and around 10 – 25 product ideas.
Understanding Costs and Setting the Right Price
Amazon and eBay customers make decisions based on price and value-for-money. That means you need to set your price points perfectly. You must strike a balance between:
- The total cost for you to source, buy, ship, and manage the item.
- The price your competitors are charging.
- Your desired profit margin.
Here’s how to work that out.
The Total Cost Per Item
The cost per item isn’t just what you pay to buy it and have it shipped. It includes all the costs your business incurs. This includes:
Understanding Your Business Costs
Here are the main areas where you’re going to incur costs as a business owner.
- The cost of the product — the amount you pay to the supplier, less discounts, to buy the item from them.
- The cost of shipping to you — the cost for the supplier to get the item to you or an FBA warehouse.
- Import and customs fees and taxes — these could be charged by the exporting or importing country.
- Platform costs — the costs charged by Amazon or eBay to list and sell your items. You can find these in the fee areas listed above.
These are the basic costs for each item. But, you will also need to add on costs incurred by your business as a whole. To do that, add up the costs across all your business operations, for a month, then divide that by the number of items you are going to sell that month. That gives you a true cost per item.
Your business operations costs include:
- Software and hardware costs for the apps and computers you use.
- Marketing costs for promoting your business.
- Office, utilities, and rentals.
- Insurance and taxes like payroll, self-employment, federal, regional, and more.
- Customer service and other administration and operational costs.
- Payroll, salary, and benefit costs for you and any employees.
- Professional costs like accounting, attorneys, tax filing services, licenses, etc.
- Exchange rate costs for buying and selling in different currencies.
- Any other costs.
The Prices Your Competitors are Charging
Now you know your costs, it’s time to look at how much other sellers are pricing their items for. Review their pricing strategies, and see if you can work out their profit margins. Although their business costs are not the same as yours, you can get an idea on how much they make on each product.
Next, look at any unique selling points you have, and your value proposition. This can help you set a fair selling price for the item. Remember, it’s not just about being the least expensive. If there are other compelling reasons to buy from you that can affect the price you charge.
Your Desired Profit Margin
Phew! Now you’ve put all that together, it’s time to work out your overall profit margin. That’s the amount of money you will have left over to reinvest into your business and grow it over time. You want to set this at a reasonable level.
Assuming you’re successful, you will use this extra money for marketing, sourcing new products, and growing your business.
Here at 123 LiQuidation, we want to see you succeed. That starts by providing you with a safe, secure, and easy way to find, source, and pay for the products you will build your business on
