Default This is great. Just keep Amazon at bay.

Keep under their radar, or else they will buy
all your supplier has and sell it themselves...oh, no, they DON'T compete with their vendors, do they?

Whatever is working, I always say, keep it going, and add a little to no time add on side hustle, or automated cash cow just in case ... and also for what it is worth, keep your supply side secret, and look for other little known markets with ready to spend buyers.

Start to examine the niche you are in, google that plus 'information" and see if there is anything being sold. scribd has been good to me for finding out about some little known niches and what information people are seeking too.

My ebay/Amazon "stuff" is a bit like chatteling except the products are bought in, so the sales page is created once and lasts until either I can no longer get the product (rare) or a competitor buys a truck load and undercuts me. Fingers crossed that doesn't happen much as my products tend to be very niche.

A lot of the stuff I sell, I'd no idea existed before going into this market

Ebay's advertising suits me - pay more if it sells, otherwise no money changes hands.

But Amazon is more hands off and usually sells an order of magnitude more than ebay. Which is nice as I just bundle 10/50/100/200 of an item and let Amazon do the shipping and customer service.
