Post The World’s Top EBay Sellers

This article has stats and observations about the top 1,000 eBay sellers worldwide. Here's an excerpt:

Over 28% of the top 1,000 eBay sellers are serious cross-border traders – they are based in one country, and have a Premium (or Featured) eBay Store in another.

Of those, around half are in China with stores in the US. In fact, almost 15% of the top 1,000 eBay sellers are based in China with Premium eBay Stores in the USA! A further 110 sellers –11% – are based in China or Hong Kong and export to other countries in the West. So over a quarter of the top 1,000 eBay sellers are Chinese traders selling to the US, Europe and Australia.

Default how to do trading in China?

I live in China. I have been thinking of starting my own business on trading. I am not worried about finding factories to produce the products here, more I concern about is looking for clients oversea.

guys, any ideas?

Hi, Andy so glad to see you here. I am also a member of your site webretailer. Almost all of the top sellers have oversea warehouses or using order fulfillment services

Interesting stuff, I wonder how much of this is influenced by international postage rates.

In Australia the Australian postal service has given the Chinese online sellers a major advantage over local sellers by giving them significantly lower postage rates (when the items are posted in to Australia from China). What this effectively means is that they can sell items with free postage for less than it would cost a local seller just to ship the item.
