Get Creative and you can sell anything on Ebay for a profit.

 

There are many trainings on how to sell items on Ebay.

They go in depth with instructions like:

  • Search for the item you are selling, find out what it sold for, base your price around that.
  • Allow for appropriate shipping costs.
  • Set your auction to start at the appropriate time.  When would your item be searched for?
  • Take the photo just so.
  • Dropshipping

Of course all this training is to improve your chances of your item being the one purchased and not getting banned from ebay.
