If you want to know how to sell electronics online, you have definitely come to the right place. There are several different ways you can go about doing this, some are better than others. You can sell on Amazon, eBay, or set up your own store.
But it gets better than that. If you really are enthusiastic about electronic items, you can even sell them without having to touch any physical products. Read on to find out more…
How to Sell Electronics on Amazon
A great way to sell any product, including electronics, is with FBA – Fulfilled by Amazon. This is where you post products to Amazon and they keep them in their warehouse. You then create a listing on the Amazon website, and when when the product sells, Amazon ships it to the customer and handles the payment, then you get your money.
So, for electronic items such as tablets, laptops, smartphones and games consoles, you could find places where you could buy them cheaply, then sell them on Amazon for a profit. Here is a great step-by-step video showing how to sell on Amazon FBA:
So, that was just a general video about how to sell products on Amazon FBA, but what about electronic items specifically? Well, proceed with caution. Here is a video from one seller who has had problems with returns when trying to sell tablets:
How to Sell Electronics on eBay
eBay is obviously another great place to sell electronics. Surprisingly, you can actually make money from selling slightly older electronics. They don’t have to be the very latest products for people to buy them. Here is some great advice from one eBay seller on the best electronic products to sell:
So that gives you an idea of the products that can sell well on eBay, but what about the actual process of selling? Here is a nice video explaining how to sell your first item on eBay. It may be a few years old but it is still relevant.
Create Your Own Online Store Free?
What if you don’t want to sell via eBay or Amazon, but would instead rather create your own online store. If you are looking to set something up for free, sites like Free Web Store or Tictail may be worth considering. However, for those who are prepared to spend some money on creating their online store, there is SellerBot.
But really, I wouldn’t recommend going down the online store route. Personally, I think there are better ways to make money online.
How to Sell Other People’s Products Online
Ever heard of something called affiliate marketing? No, well now is the time to really pay attention because this is where the big money can potentially be made, and all without touching any products yourself. Instead of buying and selling physical products, you can earn a commission by directing customers to other peoples products.
Here’s how it works:
Let’s say for example that you have a website all about tablets. You could review all the latest tablets as they come out, and fill your site with loads of really useful information. People would know that yours is the site to go to for the best information about tablets.
What you can then do is link from the various pages on your extremely informative website to products on another website. When people click through from your website to the website with the products and then buy it, you earn a commission.
Introducing Amazon Associates and the eBay Partner Network
Both Amazon and eBay have schemes that you can apply to join to sell their products in this way. So for example, you could review the latest iPad, then at the end of your review you could say that the best price is on Amazon and have a link through to the product listing. A person reads your review, likes the sound of the product, then clicks through to Amazon and buys it, and you get your cut.
Essentially what you are doing is generating leads for Amazon or eBay. You are sending more customers their way, so they reward you for it.
But be careful!
Don’t fall into the trap of writing positive reviews for all products just because you want to make that sale. No, you need to keep it real and honest. If a product is not good, you need to be honest and say so. This will build trust with your readers, so they know they can rely on your opinion. Besides, if one product is bad, you can recommend an alternative product instead.
