A decal is a design that is printed on a medium that can be stuck or transferred to another surface. This easy transferability makes them a popular item for placing on cars or T-shirts. Since there is often a high demand for certain designs, selling decals on eBay can be a profitable business for the savvy eBay seller, who stays on top of the current decal market.

Locate a wholesale supplier for the type of decals that you want to sell. Narrow down the selection process by searching for the specific type of decals that you are interested in, such as car decals, T-shirt decals, or vinyl decals.

Research the prices the decal companies charge versus what they already sell for on eBay. Unless your decals are special order, you will generally find many varieties of the same decals for sell on eBay. Check your figures to see if you can purchase the decals and price them competitively enough to make a profit.

Order your decals from your wholesale supplier.

Take good photographs of your decals to post with your listing. If the company you purchased the decals from does not provide stock photos of the merchandise, take photos of the decals that show as much detail as possible.

List your decals on eBay. Use similar keywords to what the other sellers are using in their descriptions if you are selling the same product. Do not copy their listings completely, however, as you will be suspended by eBay if your competitors report you.

Tips & Warnings

  • Anticipate trends in the market. Reduce the price of your decals when the formerly popular ones do not sell as fast as they were when you first purchased them. Keep your inventory updated to the most popular decals so buyers will return to your eBay store.
