1. Automotive

Automotive and vehicle accessories are the top-selling items on eBay right now! Anything you can think of that has to do with vehicles and parts is a hot commodity on eBay including interior and exterior parts, motorcycle parts and accessories, scooter parts and accessories, engines, electrics, lighting and bulbs, and more! 

 

Get anything you have to do with vehicles listed!

 

Tip: I know very little about vehicle parts, but I did some basic searches comparing eBay to car retailers: the prices for everything from lightbulbs to engines are significantly cheaper on eBay than they are available from retailers, which is probably why everyone is shopping on eBay for their vehicle needs! 

 

2. Clothing & Fashion

In past years, clothing and apparel have always been great categories to sell on eBay, but right now they’re at the top of the list. More buyers than ever are shopping for clothing and fashion accessories on eBay. 

 

Top-selling clothing and apparel on eBay in 2023 include:

Men's Clothing, Shoes & Accessories

That’s right, eBay reports that more men’s clothing is sold than women’s! Who would have thought?

 

Women's Clothing, Shoes & Accessories

Most of the resellers I know personally sell clothing, it is fun and easy to sell and always in demand. 

 

The top-selling categories in fashion right now include jeans, dresses, and activewear. Click here to learn about top-selling brands and clothing trends for 2023.

3. Home & Garden

Home and garden are very broad: including everything from small decor to gardening supplies like seeds and soil. 

 

Home Decor is trending everywhere, on eBay, Mercari, Depop, Etsy, of course, and Poshmark has expanded to include this category to keep up with trends and consumer stats.

 

The top-sellers within home and garden on eBay in 2023 include:

Fireplaces, Stoves, Heating & Air Conditioning Systems

Despite the cooling systems, these items are hot! Don't overlook these larger items around the house or stored away in the garage.

 

Inverters for Renewable Energy Devices & Other Outdoor Power Equipment

Similarly, renewable, green energy is hot. Any and all tools and equipment sell exponentially well on eBay.

 

Many resellers refrain from selling industrial or large, bulky equipment due to storage and convenience. However, keep your eyes open at yard sales, or even as you scroll Facebook Marketplace because these items can be lucrative.

 

Do you follow Rob and Melissa the “Flea Market Flippers?” They sell and ship large items like this for insane profits. I love their Instagram posts! 

 

Small Kitchen Appliances

Small appliances and tools such as coffee makers, blenders, and more are a lucrative eBay category as well! 

 

4. Collectibles

eBay is amongst the best places in the history of forever to buy and sell collectibles. 

 

Collectors in every industry regard eBay as one of the best places to purchase collectibles, even above niche-specific websites made exclusively for various types of items.

 

From historical military equipment, rocks and minerals, stuffed animals, and trading cards, to knives and swords and everything in between: eBay has a global audience of collectors looking for what you may have.

5. Health & Beauty

Wellness is trending. Gen Z is educating the world about the importance of self-love and self-care. It is unsurprising that this is a top-selling category on eBay.

 

Health and beauty include an array of cosmetics and healthcare items, with the top-selling subcategories being fragrances, vitamins, minerals and supplements, and sexual wellness. 

 

Health (and especially) beauty are billion-dollar industries in the United States and are amongst the most lucrative categories for resellers. They are easy to store, easy to find, easy to list, and if you can price them competitively- easy to sell!
