Terapeak is an eBay research tool, and if this doesn’t tell you much, it is a tool that help you sell products more profitable, easily discover top selling products, uncover your competitors bestselling strategies, determine how much an item is worth and how well it will sell. Let’s take a closer look at each of the strategies and see how to use Terapeak to maximize you profits.
How to find top selling products using Terapeak
Category Research
There are several ways to find top selling products using Terapek. If you have general idea of what products you want to sell or have access to; let’s say you have found a supplier with great prices on home improvement equipment and furniture and want to know should you sell “CD & Video Racks” or “Heating & Cooling Equipment”, one of the ways is to check Terapeak “Category Research” and see how well your category is doing in terms of sales.
From “Category Research” I can see that “Heating, Cooling & Air” have relatively high volume of sales and “CD & Video Racks” is category with relatively low volume of sales. If I drill down further and take a look at category trend over the last 90 days I can see that “CD & Video Racks” category is doing on average around $15K a week in sales and “Heating, Cooling & Air” is doing on average about $2M dollars a week in sales. Now that I know that there are more buyers shopping in “Heating, Cooling & Air” category, I can drill down to exact brands and models that are selling the best in this category by switching to “best selling titles” tab.
“Hot Research”
Another option to uncover top selling products is by using “Hot Research”. If you don’t have particular category for selling in mind and you don’t feel like researching different brands and models, you can get ideas for profitable products to sell from Terapeak “Hot Research” module.
Hot Categories
“Hot Categories” is a good way to identify categories which have recently experienced a significant rise in demand, which means that people are actively spending money there right now. By browsing through “Hot Categories” list it is easy to discover highly profitable niches with very little competition. As you can see “Programmable Thermostats” is listed as “very hot” category with high success rate which means that majority of listings in this category are successful. If we go look at the sales trend for this category, we can see that weekly sales are about 60K during winter season and by researching top sellers we can see that there are about 30 sellers that are selling on a regular basis right now. By finding categories with relatively high volume of sales and low number of sellers you’re uncovering potential lucrative niches where you can claim good piece of a pie with the right selling strategy. This translates into money making opportunity when our research shows us that demand is high while supply is low.
Hot Products
“Hot products” tab lists groups of similar listings which have been selling at a high success rate recently; it is another way to discover hot selling products but when looking at hot products list I would suggest narrow you search down to a category, because if you search across all categories, products that are listed at the top are hard to find at wholesale price as you can see items listed at the top are mostly consumer electronics and computers. But, if you drill down to less competitive category, it is much easier to find dropshiper or wholesaler that will be glad to supply you with products to sell.
Hot Titles
“Hot Titles” tab lists the products that have been sold most successfully on the eBay marketplace within selected period. Again, it makes sense to drill down to a less competitive category because it is easier to find wholesale suppliers for those products.
Top Sellers
It is much easier and lucrative to follow lead of success then to invent failure. Terapeak makes it easy to research and reverse-engineer sales strategy of the most successful sellers in any niche or category. By researching top sellers in your category you could easily discover most profitable products to sell or find ideas for new products to sell that you haven’t thought of before. Now, instead of blindly buying a truckload of random stuff, you know exactly which products are going to bring you a profit.

When do I have to start paying ebay fees?

February 27th, 2013 1 comment

I sold 3 items on ebay so far and I was wondering when I would have to start paying some kind of fee because it says the first 50 items are free and i haven’t had to pay any fees yet. I’m kinda confused with the whole fees thing so of anybody could help that would be great. Thank you!

The promotion for listing the first 50 items for free applies to the insertion fee only. There will still be fees associated with your first sales (specifically called "final value fees", these fees are a percentage of your sales price and are billed after the item sells on your invoice). The specific terms and conditions for the promotion you referred to are found on this page (scroll down to where it says "free insertion fees": .

Like most bills, eBay fees are billed on a monthly cycle, and are due at the end of this period each month. You can view your current account information by going to the "Seller Account" page. Go to and then hover on the tab "Account" found just above the main "active selling" portion of the page. Then, scroll down to "seller account" and click there. That will lead you to your account status showing any fees, balance, and payments. You can also access any invoices on the right by selecting the proper month and clicking "go".

When does Ebay charge the final value fee?

February 15th, 2013 4 comments

I am preparing to sell my first item on ebay for about 350 bucks. To list it, it is 40 cents, but how much and when will the final value price and any other fees be charged? Do they automatically take it out of my money?

eBay requires sellers to set up an automatic payment method to pay their selling fee invoice, although eBay does allow you to pay early with a different method. When eBay invoices will be due varies for each seller, if I recall, the cut off is either set up for the 1st or 15th, mine is the 15th of the month, and I receive a bill a few days later and then in a few more days the money is automatically withdrawn from my payment source.

eBay – How do I pay my selling fees:

The eBay listing fees are charged to your account when you list an item, and the final value fees are charged to your account when the item sells, but you pay by your monthly invoice.

As to fee expenses. You have eBay listing fees, eBay final value fees if the item sales, and PayPal fees if you are paid via PayPal. I usually allow about 15% for fees.

Basically the costs are the listing fees for most things to "auction" which are about 10 cents to $2 and the final value fee is about 9% plus PayPal fee if applicable, which is about 3% (see further down).

The fixed price fees really require reading the fees chart, but basically about 7% to 13% plus a 50 cent listing fee unless you have an eBay store. There are add-on options you can add like bold and highlight so as you can see, the fee costs are complicated, depending if it’s an auction or fixed priced listing and any extras. The link to the eBay fee page is below.

The PayPal information is:
There’s no fee to use PayPal to purchase goods or services. However, if you receive money for goods or services (such as from selling an item on eBay), the fee for each transaction is 2.9% plus $0.30 USD of the amount you receive. The link is below.

Here is some additional eBay seller info from their web site:

How much would you sale a crocheted Blanket that you made for?

February 3rd, 2013 10 comments

I make crochet blankets and i don’t knon how much money to sale them for.

On pricing, figure 3 times the cost of materials. If it’s an original design, go 3 times materials and then double it. If you sell out, then double it again!

Do lots of research and find out what others are charging, and whether anyone is selling any.

Know your customers. For instance, every new mom needs a few for baby, and they should be unusual and trendy – but the buyer is actually the family and friends who will be presenting them to her at a baby shower.

Different people have different decorating needs, so try to be up on what people are using to accessorize beds, sofas et cetera – and how to reach them..

Above all, don’t try to sell other peoples’ designs or patterns. Don’t pass off a kit as your own design. You’ll be shut down in two minutes.

Some places to sell might be a website of your own, Ebay, craft fairs, and consignment shops. If you have a day job, ask if you can put photos up on a bulletin board.

What is the cheekiest thing you have ever seen for sale on Ebay?

February 1st, 2013 3 comments

I was browsing on Ebay yesterday evening and came across lots of people selling the coffee tokens with the six stickers on for a free coffee at McDonalds, some would call that cheeky, although others may think it ingenious I suppose. I reckon that these people were either rifling through the bins at McDonalds, or they have a family member who works there perhaps.

I have heard of a real bag of freshly mown lawn grass, and empty can of Budweiser, a shrunken head, An Apache Longbow Helicopter, Jars full of fresh air and other weird stuff.

The best one has got to be someone trying to flog the whole of New Zealand [both North and South Islands]. Apparantly it got taken down by ebay after a few hours but not before the bidding got to about $3,000.

Pioneer QX-8000A Operation Quadraphonic 4 Channel

January 31st, 2013 6 comments

Here’s an old Pioneer four channel receiver I have. I usually do this videos when I get close to selling one. This is the Model QX-8000A, it’s not the top of the line but it works like new and looks almost as good, it should, I just spent over $200 to have it gone through. I have something like 7 quad receivers that I would rotate through but I decided to get that number down to 2 or 3. I decided that before I did anything I would have them all refreshed/repaired as needed, I got this back a few weeks ago and have been using it ever since and it sounds/works FANTASTIC! The video is for reference for me if I sell it but also for anyone else that may want to see one in operation. I had to edit it down from 17 minutes to what you see.
