    Not Sure Which Nerdy Items Sell Well 15th Jul 17 at 10:45 PM
    My partner is selling items on Ebay. She has several stores, one of them dedicated to nerdy items, primarily Star Wars items. However, compared to her other stores, the store isn't selling very well. Part of the reason is the long shipping time. Which nerdy items have you found sell well, on Ebay?

    Thanks

    If you want to know what items sell well, you should use a research tool. Just do a quick Google search and you should find a tool that suits you.

    Best of luck!

    If I had an item which was selling well on eBay I wouldn't be informing any potential competition

    I immediately wondered, and may well of course be wrong, that she is drop shipping from overseas. That in itself might be the issue if she is selling fake or,pirated items as she is endangering her whole account as only licensed things can be sold in the UK. LUCas et al are not the fastest to react (the Tolkien Estate is the fastest to react) but they will react eventually and get the account closed.

    However, if these are official licensed items then why the long shipping? I assume in this instance the items are to hand, so is there any way the shipping can be speeded up, can you assist with perhaps an extra run to the post office?

    Also, has someone else checked the listings for anything silly that might have crept in, illegal return policy, or anything suggesting buyer can't get a refund for loss or damaged items , and is the account properly registered as a business one ?
