eBay arbitrage is a profitable and common business practice of buying a product at a low price elsewhere to sell on eBay at a higher price. Amazon-to-eBay, Walmart-to-eBay, and Aliexpress-to-eBay arbitrage are all viable options to illustrate.
As marketplace researchers know, the same product can sell better in one marketplace over another for a variety of reasons. Perhaps the original listing had flaws (spelling errors, incorrect descriptions, inaccurate pictures), or the original seller wasn’t the best at customer service (lack of communication, slow shipping, bad reputation, etc.).
When it comes to taking advantage of these mistakes, as a seller you need to find the items that will sell well on eBay as opposed to Amazon or Walmart. This endeavor involves looking up sales figures and profit margins, estimated expenses, competition and demand levels, and other KPIs.
With a product research tool like Algopix, you can identify profitable eBay arbitrage opportunities by analyzing a product’s performance across multiple marketplaces.
