Kath and I were talking about some tips on selling on eBay today, and we realized that we often purchase lots of “identical” items – that is, a lot or pallet of numerous items that are all the same.
We thought you might find the idea appealing, especially since buying and selling on eBay this way can really be a time saver. Of course, there are a few things that are important to keep in mind when looking at buying a large lot like this. You definitely want to be sure that more than one person actually wants these things!
We’ve bought and sold some interesting things this way – “Vision Board Kits,” pewter cups, abacus (abaci?), die-cast cars…
Last year, I came across a large lot of centrifuge tubes for example. Now, those things can be expensive in a science catalog. But I bought the lot for about $15 – and over the course of the year, sold them all for about $400. Yes, it took some time for me to realise that profit – but as you’ll see from the article (which you can read here => Benefits of Buying and Selling Identical Items on eBay) – it isn’t really all that difficult to do.
Have a look at our strategy, and let me know what you think!
