The first step in an eCommerce seller’s journey is determining what items to stock for inventory. Finding out what products maximize profit requires extensive research, as online markets change frequently. You want to find the most profitable products to sell on eBay, but that requires a thorough understanding of what makes an item sold in the first place.

If you want to determine which items are most profitable on eBay, you’ll need to learn to look at things like:

  • Market prices
  • Expected shipping and tax expenses
  • Applicable marketplace fees
  • Consumer demand
  • Seller competition
  • Sales volume per month

As a seller, collecting all this information individually is time-consuming, if you can find it at all, and not worthwhile for you to do yourself. That’s why you need an eBay product research tool that can provide you with all the relevant data about products you are considering to sell with a single click – before you make a purchase decision. Simply plug in the product identifier for the product you want to research, its cost, the fulfillment method you intend to use and the location it will be shipped from, then select the marketplaces you are interested in. Algopix lets you choose from 7 international eBay marketplaces, 8 international Amazon marketplaces and Walmart US. You will get a quick analysis on if the item is recommended to sell on the chosen marketplace plus specific information regarding market price, demand level, a cost breakdown, expected profit and a whole lot more.

Not only does Algopix enable you to expand your eCommerce business by identifying other profitable eCommerce channels and local markets where you can profitably sell your products, but it also offers a bulk product analysis feature where you can analyze up to 200 products at once rather than scout each one at the time. This too can save your valuable time, enabling you to quickly analyze vendor price lists so you know what to buy and what not to buy, greatly reducing your risk of buying products that will wind up as dead inventory and greatly increase your profit opportunities.
