First of all, good luck in your new venture.
A very important thing to keep in mind is that most buyers and sellers
on eBay use the feedback rating as a way to better understand who they
are buying from or selling to. So, if you do not have a history on
eBay, I`d suggest you start by buying some small items; this will allow
you to start creating your own feedback history, which will increase
your chances of selling on eBay. You may start with a zero feedback,
but it will take longer for people to trust you as a seller...but it is
My second suggestion would be to use this great asset you have:
location! Instead of simply using the manufacturers from a list, why
not visit them and try to close deals directly? In the US, most lists
of "manufacturers" are nothing but a list of middle-men. I know your
country is very large, but you can probably concentrate on regions that
are not too far from you.
eBay offers a great tool where you can research hot selling items. Go to Seller Central and check their "What`s Hot
Another suggestion I can give you is to download their own listing tool, Turbo Lister
It is very easy to use and, best of all, it is free! Once your volume
increases considerably, then you can research for better tools.
Once again, good luck. Keep us posted on your progress!
