Finding Products to Sell on eBay with Worldwide Brands

Article by Worldwide Brands - this is a series of 14 blog posts providing information on how to find inventory and products to sell on eBay from wholesalers with Worldwide Brands and their Product Sourcing Tool for eBay.

Article #1 - Finding Products to Sell on eBay

Did you know you can now source products to sell on eBay without leaving the Selling Manager section of “My eBay”? The Worldwide Brands Product Sourcing Tool is now available within eBay’s Selling Manager. eBay Sellers can access more than 8,000 wholesale suppliers, including drop shippers, representing more than 8,000,000 products. eBay selling has taken on a whole new dimension taking eBay auction listings and eBay Stores well beyond just drop shipping. Once you have purchased a Worldwide Brands Membership, you will have unlimited access to verified wholesale suppliers with details on product category, brands, product types and wholesaler contact details. This puts you directly in contact with the right wholesale drop shipper or light bulk wholesaler with no intervening ‘middleman.’ You can also enjoy video and audio education guiding you on how to enhance your customer experience and eBay selling through real product sourcing.

Why is REAL product sourcing important for eBay Sellers?

Great Buyer Experiences Begin with Excellent Product Sourcing
Successful sales depend on great Buyer Experiences and excellent buyer feedback (otherwise known as your DSR ratings). But a great Buyer Experience begins with excellent product sourcing:

  • Buyers gravitate to your listings when you list the products they are searching to buy. This requires up-to-date internet-based market research and a source of products that can be sold on eBay.
  • Buyers flock to competitively priced products. This requires sources of wholesale supply. You need to find quality at the right selling prices and with sufficient profit margin. Excellent supplier research is critical.
  • Buyers notice products that have tempting images with compelling SEO-rich descriptions. This requires careful keyword research and correct keyword usage in product descriptions. Wholesale suppliers will provide images and basic descriptions, which can be enhanced to improve your listing quality.
  • A Seller needs to have the ability to cross-sell other products within the same niche. When selecting a wholesale supplier, a seller needs to remember this and select their first supplier with a wide range of SKUs in order to list products faster. A customer is more likely to buy from a listing, which shows additional options that they can purchase.
  • Buyers require good deals on shipping and fast shipments to destination. If a seller is going to use a drop shipper or wholesale supplier, they will need to confirm the policies and procedures of those suppliers to ensure timely shipping.

eBay Sellers need to perform all this research quickly. The Worldwide Brands Product Sourcing Tool allows eBay Sellers to do all this without leaving eBay’s Selling Manager.

How the Product Sourcing Tool Helps

For the past 10 years, Worldwide Brands researchers have been qualifying and certifying drop shippers and wholesale suppliers willing to work with eBay retailers. Here’s how eBay Sellers already use the Worldwide Brands Product Sourcing Tool. Using a selected product keyword, eBay Sellers search:

  • To find associated keywords to use in their auction listings and product descriptions
  • To identify wholesale suppliers who will work with eBay Sellers including Volume Wholesalers, Light Bulk Wholesalers, Drop Shippers, and Liquidation Suppliers
  • To conduct competition and pricing research
