5 Niche Markets for eBay

Finding a niche market is one of the most important things to do so you can really make it selling online. Did you know that the chances of being successful when you are a beginner increases when you focus on a small niche market instead of trying to appeal to everyone?

Also, focusing on a niche market makes it easier for you – you get to know your product and you can build up a very good relationship and end up with repeat customers. Eventually they may sign up to be notified when ever you add new products.

To start you off, here are some great ideas for products. While these ideas may seem at first a little abstract – that is precisely what an excellent niche is – something that is very precise and may seem hard to source.

Niche Item #1: Heart Rate Monitors
Athletes, gym bunnies or people who have had trouble with their heart and need to keep an eye on their heart rate and the people who would use them.

Why they are a niche item:
They have a 75% success rate on eBay (75% of all monitors listed on eBay in the last three months sold!)
They are lightweight and easy to ship and store
One size fits all

Niche Item #2: Plus Size Shoes
It is often hard to find shoes to fit big feet from the standard retail shops.

Why they are a niche item:
While these are commonly made by popular shoe makers, stores often order only a handful of pairs in larger sizes, which means that more and more, people who have large feet are turning more and more to buying online to get what they need.
They have a high success rate on eBay (women’s size 11 sell at 61.9% and men’s size 14 at 75%
Both men and women alike can require plus size shoes (Hot tip: women’s size 11+ high heels could make a great little niche)

Niche Item #3: Plus Size Maternity Wear
Maternity wear is another area that sell a lot of products and to create a niche focus on plus-size maternity wear which is a with huge success on eBay

Why they are a niche item:
Maternity and baby gear always works because people are always going to have babies, so you’ll never run out of customers!
Clothing items are easy to ship as they light and not fragile.

Niche Item #4: Military Insignia
Collectibles always make great niches and you can dig really deep to find the best ones. They are also perfect for people who are interested in them – you’ll find it much easier and much more fun when you sell something you enjoy. To really niche it up, go for US military insignia from the Vietnam War which is big on eBay.

Why they are a niche item:
Military Insignia rarely dates or goes out of fashion
There are so many sub-niches to discover like Russian war medals or World War 2 helmets to name a couple

Niche Item #5: Antique Clocks
Another great collectible item

Why they are a niche item:
You’ll appeal to both collectors and home decorators
They have an eBay success rate of over 67%
You can often pick these up very cheaply from flea markets and yard sales, then sell them on to make a profit

Niche items really are the way to go for new sellers and there are so many out there to keep you interested and best of all, make you money!
