I have an excess of picture frames in various sizes. Would these be a good item to begin selling on Amazon? I haven’t done this before.
It’s a pretty competitive category and they can be pricey to ship, depending on size. So, I’d take a hard look at the competition using the research techniques we cover in our What to Sell on Amazon guide. See what similar items are selling for, then see what your items will cost to ship by getting some random shipping estimates to different zip codes on usps.com and UPS or FedEx websites.
If you think you can price these low enough to beat the competition on Amazon and still make money after shipping, go for it — especially if you just want to get rid of them. It’s definitely a good test program with little investment since you already have them sitting around. You should be able to set up an individual account, too, and not pay the monthly Pro Seller account fee.
