We are receiving a lot of mails from people wanting to try tradu lately. Of course, we would like to give all of you an invite code or launch right away, but we are working on a very important and time-consuming process right now. That is why it was a little bit quite in our blog in the last time. We are currently in contact with eBay in order to verify tradu as an eBay compatible application. This verification process is necessary to offer you and all of our users an official product that will work efficiently and easily with eBay out of the box. The whole application check has a lot of paper work involved: term sheets have to be written, legal contracts have to be prepared and signed. We are doing our best to finalize this step as soon as possible. We are also going to add more marketplaces to tradu. EBAY-UK and EBAY-DE were the most requested ones and will be available when we leave beta.

Please stay tuned for further announcements, we can not wait to launch! Nico and I wish you a relaxing and fruitful Christmas period and an excellent start to 2017.

How to find best selling items on eBay

May 17, 2016 Tips & Tricks 3 mins read What items to sell on eBay?
Kevin Dietrich

One of the most frequent questions we are asked is, “What should I sell on eBay to make money?” Unfortunately, there is no straightforward answer to that question. If you have dealt with this topic for a while and searched for information on the internet, you will find various lists of top-selling items, laboriously collected by eBay power sellers and not infrequently offered for real money. We recommend avoiding such offers for various reasons. First, the missing relevance to the present can cause problems. Such lists tend to be a few months old and represent an outdated status quo. We have the experience that trends on eBay arise within a few days and are sometimes gone as quickly as they entered the market. If you want to earn on eBay, you will need tools that provide an agile look at this fast-moving market. Another reason to avoid these lists is that they are seldom tailored to your business. What good is it to have a list of top-selling mobile phones when you are a shoe seller? Let’s be honest: If these top lists really contained such profitable products, no one would give them away. That’s their business secret. Because we were asked so many times what to sell online or, rather, what the bestselling items are, we wanted to offer a solution for this.

So, how do you figure out what is selling the most on eBay?

Kevin and Nico here. We are the two guys behind Tradu and want to make it a great place for eBay sellers. In this article we will introduce ourselves and describe the idea behind Tradu.

Who are we?

We have dealt with eBay and its database for over four years now. During our work we were in contact with various eBay sellers, and almost all of them looked for a neat and easy-to-use research tool to ensure transparency on eBay and to be one step ahead of competition. Until now, there is one company that makes such a kind of eBay research tool available, which, according to various statements, is more or less in decline. However, we know that we can do better and are a dream team for such a plan: Nico is living in Germany and knows—thanks to his long-standing professional experience—how to draft and build the necessary server infrastructure for such a project. I—Kevin—am living in Germany as well. I studied business information systems and published a scientific paper about the analysis of eBay data using named entity recognition.

What is Tradu?

Tradu is a research tool for eBay. We have made it our mission to provide eBay sellers with a general tool, which would give them comprehensive market insights that can be converted into cash.
