1. How to Sell iPhone Cases
How to Sell iPhone Cases? The first step of choosing what to sell is always, “Is it in DEMAND“!?! Since the beginning, cell phones have always gotten dropped, dinged and dunked. Just about everyone I known that owns a cell phone also owns a phone case. So yes, iphone cases ARE in demand. What I’m going to do in this article is show you how to choose the BEST iphone cases to sell and how to sell them.
2. Where to Find iPhone Cases
AliExpress.com has one of the largest selections of iPhone accessories on the internet! Its also the largest dropshipping site that there is. The have manufactures from all over the world, list the goods they have for sale. Buying direct from the manufacture will allow you to get the biggest possible saves you can. In the online market, you need to make every cent count in order to compete and stay open for business.
3. Only Sell High Demand iPhone Cases
You don’t just want to sell any iPhone case, you want to sell the ones that are in the highest in DEMAND. There is no reason to sell items that take years to sell. Lucky for us AliExpress allows for us to sort their products by “Order”, meaning we can see which items have the highest number of sales. The higher the order number, the more they have sold, the more in demand that item is. There are many of these little market indicators scattered all through out the internet, you just have to know where to look. I will be going over a few of those indicators in this article.
For the purposed of this article I chose the first iphone cases that showed up, e.g. “Sexy Retro Floral Phone Case For Apple iPhone 7 6 6s 5 5s SE Plus Lace Flower Hard PC+TPU Cases Back Cover Capa For iPhone7Plus”. The order quantity for this listing is 47,024!
4. How to Find Off Site Demand Indicators
One of the ways I check to see if an item is worth selling is to check for off site demand indicators like eBay or Amazon. If I can see that these iPhone cases are actually being sold, then I know that I can sell them too.
As you can see they DO sell on eBay. The prices are low but they are selling. I believe that the prices are low because no one can compete with this seller from China. I also believe that these same cases are being sold on eBay at a higher price under a different name. By listing these products under a different name, the seller doesn’t have to compete with the seller from China. This is an insider secret tip on how to sell iphone cases, make sure you NEVER use the stock name of the product. The big take away from this is that people ARE buying this case.
You can also see that these cases are listed on Amazon. These listings are new so we don’t know if they are selling yet. The seller posted them at a price I think is reasonable and still be enough to make money.
For those of you planning on selling these iPhone cases on eBay or Amazon, please make sure you physically have the products in hand. You do NOT want to dropship when selling on eBay or Amazon. It may take longer then the period of time eBay or Amazon allows, for you customer to receive their goods. This would result in you getting restricted or out right banned from the platform. If you plan on dropshipping, make sure that you have your own store where you get to make the rules.
5. Price Points
When selling fast moving products, smaller margins are perfectly acceptable. Lets say you price you iPhone Case at $9.99 and the case cost you $1.60 and you are dropshipping it for free: your profit will be ($9.99 – $1.60) = $8.39. Now lets say you sell 10 a day, ($8.39 * 10) = $83.90!! Thats $84 a DAY for 1 product!!! Even if you priced your cases lower, the volume of sales would still make the small margins acceptable. FYI, you’re not going to be selling just 1 item, you’re going to have a few to hundreds of items for sell!
6. Where to Sell iPhone Cases
You can sell these cases anywhere: CraigsList, eBay, Amazon, OfferUp or even at the Swap Meet. The easiest and best way how to sell iphone cases is to sell them in your own online store. In your own store, you can set the rules as you see fit. You can name the price, determine the shipping speed and most importantly implement a really easy dropshipping plan.
