Luckily there are other online tools that make comparing products on eBay easier then it is on eBay itself.

WatchedItem is the first entry in my list. It presents users with a friendly interface that lets them select a category and then enter some keywords of the query. The results are then shown with their prices and details. A link is provided with each result which can be clicked for further details.

How to find a niche on eBay
Mar 18, 10 - Michelle

4 years ago, I found a good product to sell online by experimentation.

I bought 10 different items and listed them on eBay to measure interest. Only 1 out of 10 items, a Tahari women’s business suit, got bids and made a profit. I went on to sell $100K on eBay and kept over $25K as profit.

I’m a developer so I built a site called WatchedItem.com to find the most watched eBay items. This information is not available directly on eBay. Many sellers check out their eBay competitors here.

Here’s a few hot niches that you can take a look at to get ideas:

Most wanted Auto parts
Most valuable Swarovski Figurines

How to choose a niche:
1. Products with a watcher count of 20 or more is a good niche.
2. Check out the volume of sales. You want a niche that sells more than $10K per month.
3. Experiment: Keep the receipts so you can return inventory that does not sell online.

Best of luck!
