I get a lot of emails regarding how to open up an eBay store, and most of them are surrounding what to sell. Sometimes we over think the easy ways to make money, and one easy eBay business to start is the board game replacement part niche. Think about a time that you may have lost a piece to your favorite childhood game, or even a newer game that you might have just bought. What do you do? Is the game ruined, do you make new rules and not use the missing pieces, or do you look online for a replacement?
Most look on eBay for the replacement piece, and that’s where we come in! Ebay seems like the simplest solution to find the missing piece, so why not be the person to sell it to them? You may be thinking, “where do I get the inventory?” Thats a good question and I have a good answer. Hasbro is the number one manufacture of board games in the world. They make everything from Battleship to Yahtzee, and pretty much everything else in between. Not a lot of people know this, but you can order any replacement part directly from them. It can even be a piece from an older game that they don’t make anymore! Lets take a look at a few examples:
I have mentioned that Scrabble pieces sell really well on eBay, and guess what, Hasbro makes Scrabble. The best selling Scrabble pieces on eBay are from the Black Diamond edition. You can buy 100 new pieces for only $5.50 (HERE), and they are selling on eBay for $30!
What about the famous Monopoly? What if I am always the car when I play, and somehow I lose it! I would be devastated, so I would look for a replacement part on eBay. You can buy all of the replacement Monopoly tokens for $2 (HERE). They are selling on eBay for $7!
What if a daughter loves her Easy Bake Oven, but she lost her oven pans? Again, you could be the person who sells it to them! You can buy them for $1.50 each (HERE), and sell three of them on eBay for $20!
These are just a few examples out of the hundreds that you could be selling for a huge return on investment! Check out all of the replacement parts that you can order HERE, and start your own eBay business today!
