Most sellers find it difficult to find what sells well on eBay. With over 800 million listings in the US alone, there is a lot of competition. One of the biggest mistakes most sellers make is trying to sell the most popular products. When it comes to eBay, you need to learn how to determine which products are viable based on a set of key performance indicators (KPIs).

The most important KPIs for eBay include:

  • Market price
  • Expenses
  • Profit
  • Competition
  • Demand

Each of these KPIs directly influences the sellability of an item. For example, an item that has a reasonable price, low fulfillment and shipping costs, high net profit margins, low competition, and high demand is ideal. However, items like this are incredibly difficult to find.

Algopix is an eBay product research tool that is capable of displaying all of these KPIs through a user-friendly interface. You can easily analyze products you are considering, to see if they are worthwhile, using nothing but their UPC code, name, or a similar phrase. You can even search for your product in many of eBay’s other marketplaces.

As an added bonus, the platform can convert ASIN to UPC or EAN as well. This is helpful if you want to check a product that is available in another market.

When you find products that seem viable, you’ll want to search them on eBay itself. You’ll quickly see which ones have respectable listings. Any products with low-quality listings and unestablished competition are perfect opportunities. By simply creating professional listings, you will stand out above many of the lower quality listings that exist on eBay. Buyers pay attention to quality and are more likely to trust a listing with professional pictures, grammatically correct descriptions, and a seller with a reliable reputation.
