eBay.com invitation only eBay Wholesale Deals
eBay Wholesale Deals
eBay.com have quietly set up a secret wholesale site – eBay Wholesale Deals. It’s an invitation only only marketplace open to selected eBay Top Sellers and is designed to bring together brands, manufacturers, retailers and distributors with eBay retailers.
Listings on the site are pre-screened against current eBay selling prices as well as competitor websites to ensure that the deals are attractive to prospective purchasers. That should (so long as eBay get their sums right) mean that after eBay listing and final value fees, after sales taxes, after packing and shipping costs, and after PayPal fees, there’s still a margin to be made.
As I’ve not got an eBay.com registered account that’s been invited to participate I can’t comment on the quality of the merchandise on offer or on the margins eBay has ensured are there to be made, if you’ve have access to the site we’d love to hear your thoughts.
I like the idea of eBay making it easy to access wholesalers, however the normal word of warning. If a wholesale source is easy to find then you won’t be the only person using that source. The harder you work to establish your own sources and the harder they are to get an account with the more valuable the stock will be and the more profitable when you come to sell it.
However if you’re lucky enough to be invited to use the new eBay Wholesale Deals site and you’re short of stock I’d grab the opportunity. Do the normal checks, sign up for Terapeak if you haven’t already and check out the current selling prices on eBay. Calculate all your costs and if there’s a deal to be done then go for it.
