Many sellers have started importing trending products from China to sell on eBay, Amazon, and other marketplaces. We’ve all seen the fidget spinners, hoverboards, and other trendy products. But the real question is, how do you find the right products?

A common strategy is to scour subcategory pages on Amazon for niche products that you are familiar with. It’s always recommended you try and source familiar products as you’ll know what to look for.

First, you need to do market research into what people are buying and how much they’re willing to pay. Product research and analysis is a keystone of successful eCommerce businesses as it will limit risk and increase your profit margins.

You want to find products that meet the following criteria:

  • High demand
  • Low competition
  • Few established sellers
  • Low expenses
  • High-profit margins

While you may find a product that meets all of these criteria, it’s unlikely. Try and find products that satisfy most of these requirements. Most importantly, look for ones that have high demand and aren’t seasonal.
