But then you have to consider that there are a couple of things that come into play that will determine who sees your product, but also how much profit you have the potential to make.
Let's take a quick look.
Right at the top of the list is the appeal of your product.
Is it something that people want? Can they easily get it somewhere else, for a better price? These are some of the main options to consider when thinking about making money on a website like eBay.
Naturally if your product is in demand but not in great supply, then you stand to make a hefty profit in relation to the worth of the item.
Now of course, not everyone has access to rare items that are in high demand.
If this applies to you, then the best thing to do is to look at the things you already own or those items you can sell on behalf of someone else.
Remember, you want to start a business and that means starting small and with regular items if you have to.
Doing things this way can easily help with the next step: trust.
Due to the vastness of the internet and its unbiased approach to its users, anyone can log on, including some unsavory characters.
As such it is essential to establish some trust, which is done, quite simply, by getting good reviews from your customers.
And as a final tip if you are aiming to make money selling on eBay, you should put some effort into product titles and descriptions.
Consider the difference between a product listing simply entitled "vintage bowling ball" and "1956 World Championship Bowling Ball - Pitch Black & Excellent Condition".
The reason why the latter would do much better is because it covers more possible search terms.
