It can be a daunting task, but in this blog, we will go through 7 profitable product ideas when selling on eBay and how you can find other products by yourself.

Why eBay?

eBay is a great platform to sell on for many reasons. The main reason being is that its easy to list items and get your store up and running. During the early stages, you don’t want to spend to much time on menial and admin like tasks. eBay takes care of most the technical side of creating a store and allows you to start selling.

However, there are many alternatives platforms to eBay which you can create your store on.

Comic Books

Comic books are a great item to invest in because they tend to appreciate in value, especially if they are kept in great condition. Comics that hold value tend to be from the most popular brands, such as Marvel Comics, DC Entertainment, Image Comics and IDW Publishing.

When selling comic books its important to identify the condition the item is in. The condition of a comic book is rated in grades. The higher the grade, the better condition the comic book is in. However, be careful, as grading is very subjective, so its important to have a look at the comic book yourself to see if it is up to your standard.

In this market, any blemish will drastically reduce the cost of an item. On the flip side, a comic that is in great condition will hold lots of value.
