    How much stock will I need to start out an ebay store?

    I know the area in which I intend to market and once I get going on ebay, I will then expand what I will sell. I have started my business plan but need to look into the amount of stock I will need to order. I don't want too much in case it doesn't sell but at the same time, I need enough to get it out with little delay. Anyone experienced in e-commerce / ebay for an opinion?

    I'm not experienced in this at all, but i guess logic has kicked in. Why not get a small amount of stock to start with, and see whether you have a market, seeing whether it will sell, etc, then afterwards get some more stock, and work from there?

    Thanks Danny - yes I will order small but I need to get it right. I will have to see how the stuff sells smile

    why don't you just drop ship the products? that way you can see the prices you can get for them with little to no investment at all
