eBay Seller Success Story - Brighton Shoes

Have you ever wondered what to sell on ebay? Check this out! I purchased a pair of Brighton Womens Sandals at a local thrift store and turned them into nearly $40 profit! Brighton shoes are very high quality sandals, made in Italy. Here is the listing:

BRIGHTON Womens Sandals LARK THONG sz 8 Blue Made Italy

eBay Sale Price: $41
My Cost: $1.75
Profit on Sale: $39.25

As with any sale on ebay, there are associated listing and end of sale fees. I usually recover those costs in shipping and handling. For example, I charged $9 shipping & handling on this sale, but only paid $5 to ship the shoes. Keep those extra charges in mind when setting your shipping and handling charges.

What to Sell on ebay ... Discounted Nicorette Gum


As the New Year begins, so do the New Year resolutions. A popular resolution every year for smokers is to quit smoking. I recently found boxes of Nicorette gum, a smoking cessation aid, on clearance at a local retail shop. The clearance price was $12.99 and I had a coupon good for $10 off a box of Nicorette gum, original flavor. I paid $2.99 for the box of Nicorette gum and sold it for over $25!



Sale price$27.49
My Cost$2.99
Profit on Sale$24.50

You can sell clearance priced items on ebay for a profit, too! For more information on what to sell on ebay and money saving tips, please visit me on eHow at: http://www.ehow.com/members/pieceofscrap.html
