Decide what you’re selling

If you want to sell weird and wonderful things then that’s great, but just make sure you know what they are and are into them yourself. It’s better to sell something that you know about or you love so that you have a passion for it and find it easier to sell. On eBay, you don’t need to have a theme though or stick to one thing, you can sell anything so if you want to try different things or you’re looking to get rid of things from your home then it’s okay, old board games will sell and you can sell clothes too. 


If you are planning to sell a particular thing then have a look at what others are doing on eBay. What is the competition like and are they doing anything different that makes them stand out? Take note of this but take inspiration too.
