WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN SELLING ONLINE

  1. Photos and good descriptions can set your products apart from competitors. If selling online is the main focus for your business, make it easy for your customer to scroll through and purchase.
  2. Set a limit to how long the product will be available. Ebay uses bids to open and close anything sale.
  3. More detail the better! Take lots of photos and include a caption with each one.
  4. A higher price can give you the most profit, but if you are selling gently used items be willing to meet your customers in the middle.
  5. Sell in bulk! Kids clothes are a great example for selling in bulk. Group by size or season and clean out the closet faster.
