Expanding Your eBay Shop With Wholesale DVDs

21 October 2008

One of the many things that makes opening your own eBay based business so attractive is how simple and worry free it is. You can go from being an eBay shopper to an eBay seller in minutes, and you can sell just about anything under the sun. Many people realize that with the ever changing economy, it helps to have a diversified inventory so that no matter what is popular at the moment, you can appeal to the widest audience possible. One product that many people turn to is wholesale DVDs. The DVD is still the king of all video formats and since just about everyone has a DVD player, you are literally appealing to everyone under the sun. Let’s take at a few golden rules you need to keep in mind if you are considering introducing wholesale DVDs to your eBay storefront.

Thanks to places like Wal-Mart and Target, we now live in the era of the superstore. We walk into an electronics section and expect a huge selection of DVDs to choose from. If we don’t find it, we tend to be slightly offended and we often don’t even consider buying anything there. The same is true for your eBay storefront. The bigger your selection is, the more repeat business you’ll get and the more serious shoppers will take your store. No one expects an Amazon.com type of selection, but if you are only thinking about stocking a dozen or do titles, you might want to rethink your strategy.

A snappy product description and an impressive selection might attract shoppers but good prices are going to be the only thing that keeps them there. Of course, the point of any business is making a tidy profit so the key to offering the best prices is finding the best distributor who is going to offer you the lowest wholesale DVD price. This will likely take some shopping around and some trial and error, so don’t feel bad and don’t give up if you don’t find the best deal right away. You also need to have a good report with your distributor so that you can be privy to discounts and other specials that might become available.

Since most people have heard of the majority of the films you are going to be selling, it is up to you to make each and every wholesale DVD you sell seem irresistible. You do this with well written ads, or at the very least, properly credited descriptions from other websites. Many people are scared to use text written by others on the Internet but in most cases, it is perfectly fine as long as you give credit where credit is due. Try writing your own and see what the response is from your customer base. You may realize that you are better at it than you think!

Expending your eBay based business to include wholesale DVDs isn’t hard, but there are a few golden rules you need to follow to ensure everything goes smoothly.
