I am interested in knowing more about how to start a business on eBay. I would really appreciate some guidance.  I have no clue about what I should do. I really need some advice.  Thanks in advance.

    I make my living from my eBay store that carries Women`s suits:  Shining-Star-Suits

    When I started my eBay sales, I experimented with several types of
    clothing items.  I figured out what to sell by trial and
    error.  I was frustrated by not being able to profile other
    sellers and determine demand for my items.  So I created a new
    market research service that won`t break a seller`s budget: eSeller Street

    So, now for the advice. 

    Aim for profits from Day 1.  When experimenting with what to
    sell, buy items from a store that can be returned.  If you find
    something that sells for a profit, specialize in that item.. 
    Don`t try to be the lowest cost seller, instead upsell by creating compelling listings with detailed photographs. 
    Research the competition.  How much are they selling each
    week?  What is their success rate.  These numbers should go
    into your inventory decisions.

    Best of luck!
