Now that you know what reselling on ebay is all about, you’re interested in starting your own reselling business.
As with any business, you can go the free option by browsing through a lot of info on Google and trying to piece it all together.
While it’s great if you’re on a budget, it also means a lot more time on your end to go through the content and find what you need. If you’ve got some money to invest in your new business, then getting an ebook or course can really help you get over the learning curve really quickly and get your business running profitable sooner rather than later.
To help you get your new reselling business started off on the right foot, I’ve put together a list of resources all about where to learn about all things to do with running an ebay business including both free and paid options.
Blogs about reselling on ebay
- Mama with A Calling – While my blog doesn’t focus solely on reselling on ebay, there are a number of posts about supplies you need to get started and how to fit your ebay side hustle into your busy life.
- The E-commerce Mom – As a mom that’s sold over $100k on ebay, Kayla knows a thing or two about selling on ebay and fitting into mom life. She covers topics like how to get started, selling on platforms other than ebay, fitting ebay into your busy life, and much more.
- Listing to freedom – Lee left her engineering job to be a work at home mom and ebay allowed her to do that. Read more about her story here when I interviewed her. She covers a variety of reselling topics and talks about how reselling has helped her pay off debt, too.
- Flea Market Flippers – Rob and Melissa are full time resellers with little kids at home as well. Their specialty is reselling unique items for big profit, like this rowing machine they bought for $182 and flipped for over $700! They also sell normal things like shoes and a big perk is that they actually have a free mini course that teaches you how to get started selling on ebay and make $100 this week.
While there are probably other blogs out there about reselling on ebay, these listed here are ones that teach solid info and focus on reselling used items. A lot of the ebay information you find when you google is going to be about dropshipping or ordering brand new items in bulk from China and reselling them on ebay.
YouTube channels about reselling
The reselling community (aka those that resell on ebay for a living) puts out a ton of free content about everything from which items they buy and why to what items are selling. I have watched countless Youtube videos and while the information is very helpful, there’s also a lot to sift through. Here’s a list of reseller Youtube channels that focus on clothing. For more general info about reselling, check out these channels.
Instagram Reseller Community
It might sound surprising, but Instagram is a great way to learn about reselling. The reselling community is very active on there. The biggest thing I learn from following reseller Instagram accounts is learning which items will sell very well and for a really great price. It’s common for people to post their “OMG this just sold and I bought it for only this much and it sold for THIS!” items.
I know I’ve done that, like the time I sold a stuffed animal for $400 that I bought for 30 cents!!!!
Here are some accounts that I’ve found really helpful:
