To find one-of-a-kind items (remember these are not always new things) at a great price and make a profit selling them for your eBay business, follow these helpful purchasing guidelines:
  • Try to pay the lowest possible price for your item — buy at wholesale (or in bulk) whenever possible.

  • If you're the handy fix-it-all type, find items in need of minor repair and repair them. Then put them up for sale "like new."

  • Search for unique items that may be common in your geographic area but hard to find in other places across the country.

  • Attend estate sales — many a salable gem is hiding in someone's home or garage.

  • Visit closeout stores, liquidators, and live auctions regularly.
