When using research software like Mpire, have you noticed that some products jump out and say ‘hot selling item’?
Some items are ‘hot’ because they can’t be bought (heh.. that rhymes). Case in point – Baby Bjorn Baby Carriers. We researched these and noticed that they sell extremely well on eBay. But after we tracked down the Manufacturers Rep for this product, we were told sorry, we don’t allow Baby Bjorn products to be sold on eBay. She did say if we had had a website (not eBay) that featured baby-related items, we could buy them however.
That explains why they look ‘hot’. There are relatively few for sale and they’re in high demand. Good old ‘Supply and Demand’. But you can can’t wholesale purchase them – at least not for eBay. As for us, we moved on. But for anyone who sells baby-related products online (but off eBay) as a home-based business, here’s a free tip for you – you can sell Baby Bjorn Baby Carriers on the web, just not on eBay.
