What’s Hot: Kid-Tough Camera from Fisher Price

Hello eBay Sellers, I’m HammerTap’s Jen Cano with a What’s Hot on eBay newsflash.

Everybody wants a hot tip on what to sell in the upcoming holiday season, right? Toys, of course, are all the rage. I'm following a few of the hot-sellers myself, and I wanted to let you in on some of the secrets I've learned using HammerTap research software.

One of the most popular-selling toys for the upcoming months is going to be the Kid-Tough Camera from Fisher Price. This hot little item is selling about 65% of the time with an average selling price of $67—that's a tidy $12 above retail! But, we can do even better than that. To make more money, list it as a regular auction with BIN, end your auction on Wednesday, and list it for five days.

What’s Hot: Bracelet Charms

Hello eBay Sellers, I’m HammerTap’s Jen Cano with a What’s Hot on eBay newsflash.

Let's take a look into the fantastic, glittery world of Jewelry today. I used HammerTap research software to investigate hot trends in Italian Modular charms. Overall, this category has a 24% sell-through rate, which isn't so hot, unless you can pinpoint specific items or selling methods that outperform others.

Let me show you what I mean. Titles with the word charms sold 56% of the time, while titles with the word "charm" (no s) sold 76% of the time. Then, 55% of Jimmy Buffett charms sold in general, but when the seller also included a misspelling of the name "Buffet" with one t on the end, sell-through rates jumped to 80%.

Sometimes it's not what you sell as much as it is how you sell it.
