Selling Ties on eBay: Amazing Trick to Turn $3 into $20+

Selling ties on eBay: This really works

Men’s neckties are a great item to flip on eBay.

They are one of those high end items that sell for $100-300 brand new and hold their resale value if the condition and brand is right.

When I first stumbled onto the necktie niche, I didn’t have a clue about it.

But I figured I would give it a shot: I took down a list of the highest end neckties and went straight to Goodwill.

Goodwill and other thrift stores are FILLED with neckties. And usually you can find some absolute gems. 

In fact, selling ties on eBay was one of my strategies when I started and it helped me make $5,000 in sales in my first 90 days.

These brands easily sell for $20 and some sell for upwards of $50-150.

The best part is that Goodwill prices just about every one of their ties for just $3.00 each.

Sometimes you can find ties at other thrift stores for as low as $1.00 or $2.00 each. 

The reality is, neckties are one of those items that most people overlook when reselling.

That means that you’ll rarely have any competition when sourcing locally and that means you are more likely to find big profits.


How to list ties for maximum sales

The key to selling ties on eBay is the key to selling just about anything on eBay:

Optimizing your eBay listings with amazing photos, title, and description.

That really is the key to it.

Because, honestly, it’s very easy to take terrible photos for eBay listings (and you will see a lot of these posted by other sellers).

Another great part of selling ties on eBay is that they are cheap to ship.

A majority of the time I offer “Free Shipping” because of the low cost. Then I ship using USPS first class inside of a small 6 x 9 bubble mailer which you can purchase in bulk on eBay.

Shipping first class costs between $4.00-6.00 because ties easily meet the under 13 ounces threshold.
