Many eCommerce companies look to eBay arbitrage to profit off of the differences in the price of the same products on different marketplaces. A specific laptop on Amazon could have a different price than the same model on eBay.

These price differences can occur for a variety of reasons, but all arbitrage sellers need to know is how to analyze these differences in market circumstances quickly and conveniently. That’s where online tools can help. Algopix, for instance, compares profit margins, prices, expenses, demand, and seller competition of various products on 16 marketplaces in several different countries.

All you need to do is order whatever products you’ve determined can be purchased on Amazon and sold for a profit on eBay. When the products arrive, simply create individual listings for them on eBay.
