Wondering what products to sell online? In this post I share a list of twelve products that sell well online. I’ve found that these products sell well online through personal experience, as well as by researching online search trends and products that have sold on sites such as ebay and etsy.
12 products that sell well online
Here’s a list of products I’ve found that sell well online:
I personally sell used books in my ebay store and have found that books sell well online, especially if they are first edition, rare, or are about topics that are trending and collectable. Not only do books sell well online, they are also very easy to ship and can often be shipped at a discounted rate though the USPS Media Mail option.
I personally sell digital products online through my etsy store. These are great products to sell because they do not take up physical space, can be sold and delivered to the customer easily, and are generally nontaxable goods (because they are not physical products). Depending on the item, pricing can be as little as about $1, or up to hundreds of dollars.
Many, many people purchase clothing online, especially second hand clothing. Clothing is often easy to source at thrift stores and garage sales, and is often very easy to ship because it isn’t something that can easily break during transit. Clothing is also relatively easy to store if you have extra closet space or a space to store boxes in your home.
Many people search for household items and decorations online. I’ve noticed that many household items are purchased online, especially second hand items on ebay, etsy and Craigslist. Small household items are often easy to ship as well which makes them a great option for selling online. Larger items often sell well on Craigslist because it allows buyers and sellers to meet in person if desired to exchange payment and goods without requiring packaging and shipping the item.
One of my favorite things to buy and sell online is vintage items. I love how unique vintage items can be, and how reselling vintage items keeps these items in circulation and prevents the need for creating new items. Many people love purchasing vintage clothing, books, household goods and audio recordings. Often times, vintage items can yield a higher price tag if the item is rare.
Records, Cassette Tapes and CDs
Like I mentioned above, vintage audio recordings are popular items to buy online which makes them a great option for selling online. I’ve noticed that cassettes and CDs are starting to gain popularity online. I’m guessing this is because many people love using cassette players and CD players, and most stores no longer sell these items.
Art is something that people often will purchase anytime, even during a recession. There’s something about having great art on the walls and in our living spaces that makes us feel happy and hopeful, even during hard times. Art is a very popular item to sell online and can yield a big price tag if the art is rare. Art is also often easy to ship if it’s a small canvas or print. Art can also be printed onto items such as clothing or fridge magnets which allows artists to share their art on a variety of media which can yield more sales than just one piece of art.
A very popular item to buy and sell online is jewelry. With today’s technology, creating beautiful photos highlighting jewelry is very easy and makes selling jewelry online ideal. Jewelry is all about beauty and quality, which photos can easily highlight, sometimes making online the ideal place to purchase because of the photos. This type of product can also yield a high price through auction sites such as ebay if people really, really want an item.
Baby items are very popular online, especially second hand baby items such as clothing and toys. Personally, I purchased a lot of second hand baby items through Craigslist when I had my first child. I choose to purchase these items in this manner for several reasons, specifically because it was often less expensive and also because I like to purchase second hand to avoid creating more trash on this planet. Many other moms also feel this way which is keeping baby items in circulation and out of the landfill.
A gift basket is a great gift that takes very little thought and planning, which is why many people send gift baskets as gifts. Not only are gift baskets a great gift, they are also often unique gifts that have been created by artisans who love creating interesting collections. Popular gift baskets that sell well online are food gift baskets, new baby gift baskets, and gift baskets that feature local or handmade items.
Many people are using the internet to provide services these days. Selling services online can be a great way to provide services to people without having to leave your home or commute. Services that sell well online are coaching services and assistant services.
Lastly, another product that sells well online is information. Information can be sold a variety of ways, including hosting online classes, creating and selling digital items, and blogging (which is probably my favorite). Many people are happy to invest in their knowledge which makes selling information a great option if someone is an expert in any given field.
