    Your question is too general, like aksing "what can I sell on eBay ?" Focus on what you know and are passionate about.

    Peace

    I've tried but I failed. It's a tough competition there. All you need is a long term hard work and patience, longer than making money blogging.

    Better start small first. Selling product in ebay encourage you to be smart, always do researching what hot and what people looking for. All of this consume lot of time)

    I have 3 powerseller accounts, make about 250k year profit, it takes hard work, finding products that are unique that not are not common

    start here, alibaba.com most likely will need to import from China

    good luck

    You can stand out from the group by being unique, do lot of trial and error and do keyword research, use terapeak wisely, it's quite hard to earn a penny from ebay nowadays. :)

    Really hard thing to do, if you get into software...it's all FAKE. Actually, A LOT of "hot" items are fake. The real thing is you have to find something that is a NICHE!

    I'm currently dropship from brandsdragon.com because their price is cheap and good quality too even though not branded. You can give it a try if you're into electronic niche because they have varieties of electronic products

    Ebay is online shopping market, having many sellers on ebay will not affect your profit provided you know proper technique of selling. To increase your sales and profits you can use free shipping, discount coupon, feedback system, affiliate program also try to promote your product on facebook and other social sites.

    I recommend to start with something small that you can handle. As you are getting positive feedback from the buyers, your credibility will grow. It will eventually help you grow fast and then you can expend your business on ebay. However, ebay's price is a lot more chipper than other websites so I highly recommend to find something that has high profitability that enough cover you free shipping. If you can get direct contract with the manufacturer to reduce the costs, that will be awesome.

    I have been making pretty good money making my own t-shirts on ebay then dropshipping them to my customers. I use these guys:

    fyves.com/refdccb7af1

    I generally make about 10-15 per t-shirt after S&H.

    You can try differentiation by changing business model and rent out your inventory instead of selling it. You can earn better profits.

    A good site offering free ads and no commissions is http://www.hirejungle.co.uk. It worked for me!

    They are working on the US version www.hirejungle.com which I read would be launched in 2013-2014.

    Stay well clear of Fyves.com. They are thieves and a completly fraudulant company. Do not be fooled by their proffesional looking website. You will not recieve your orders and they will not respond to any attempts to contact them.
