You can find candles on sale down to $1 that would usually cost around of $10. Catching these sales allows you to stock up and turn around and sell those candles on eBay for their original price of $10+ like these ones HERE. How’s that for a HUGE profit.

Candles are big items for many these days and the small ones are great sellers for shower favors, so listing and adding that into your description could help promote your listing!

Yes, you read that right shampoo can be sold on eBay and you can always find great deals for shampoo at your local store. Keep your eye out for a great sale, clearance items or you use rebates and other savings techniques to get them for less or even free! These are items you can stock up on then turn around and sell on eBay for the original price. There was a Shampoo that was recently on sale and with rewards and rebates it netted as FREE, could be sold on eBay for $8.99 Look HERE and see how fast they go! Give it a try if you’re looking for a way to make some extra cash.

Remember, you aren’t  limited to just shampoo there are other toiletries like deodorant, hairspray, etc. Many of these items are regular selling items and you’ll quickly find yourself building a regular customer base on eBay!

note: use care when checking for expiration dates and eBay policy before selling

Amazon is always having crazy sells and deals, for example, they 1.had a recent lighting deal on Bentgo Salad Containers which were being sold for 67% off and they sell great on eBay for $18.39, take a look HERE. Or things like this Glade Automatic Spray Kit which had a great sale and you could have purchased as low as FREE and sold on eBay for $10.99 are the listings on eBay for it.
