In order to have a successful online business, it is helpful to have a product niche. When deciding what your niche might be, you may want to consider avoiding five product categories. Car parts, while popular, can be costly in regards to shipping due to their size and weight. Books and textbooks drop quickly in value as new editions are released. Swimsuits are one of the most commonly returned items due to sizing difficulties. Electronics can be challenging as many brand-name items are not available to resellers. Restricted products may only be available to licenced sellers and have few suppliers.

EBay has recently updated its feedback policy. Sellers will automatically receive a five-star DSR rating when they offer and provide fast and free shipping. While this may indeed help sellers to receive five-star ratings, it can be a hinderance as shipping costs must be factored into the price of an item in order to ensure the apporpriate profit margin. Therefore, sellers who offer free shipping may have their items listed at a higher cost than the competition and will pay higher Final Value Fees as items will be set at higher prices than if charging for shipping.
