1. Deciding what to see on Ebay
It's a question I hear all the time from prospective eBay sellers: "What's the best thing I can sell on eBay?" There's no simple answer-the list of desirable items changes with the seasons and as collecting fads come and go. The choice of what to sell is important, however. Take the time to choose items that you'll enjoy selling and handling for the long term.

If you play your cards right and pick products you enjoy finding and selling, you'll have taken a big first step toward becoming a successful eBay seller.
