When you watch retail sales, you become acutely aware of the best time to stock up on certain items. Like looking for winter coat clearance from January through March to buy for next year. Or spotting fitness deals in January when stores are pushing that whole “New Year, New You” mantra. When you’re considering what to buy on eBay in March, the same ideas hold true — certain categories and products feature better deals than others during this time of year.

What to Buy on eBay in March 2024

     

Searches for home and garden supplies continue to tick up in March, with a bigger emphasis on spring cleaning (think vacuums and organization). Fashion interests switch from winter clearance to spring attire. And as winter layers are slowly removed, eBay shoppers start seeking out deals on dietary supplements, skincare, and sporting equipment,

Home and Garden

Yeah, people are seeking out garden tools and outdoor furniture like they do in February, but spring cleaning items are also a hot commodity when considering what to buy on eBay. Look for vacuums, fresh linens, organizational helpers, and even home appliance parts that are cheaper on eBay than elsewhere. The eBay Refurbished section is a great place to search tools for home improvement projects at a fraction of their original cost. We found a WORX 20V Power Share Cordless 8" Shrubber trimmer with 1 Blade-SR for $49.40 — a 59% discount.

Spring Dresses and Shoes

Instead of winter coats, March is all about women’s dresses for spring, handbags, and shoes. Basically sellers and shoppers are both moving away from the heavy layering and looking ahead to the warmer days ahead. For dresses on eBay you can shop by brand like Free People, Kate Spade, BCBG, Anthropologie, and Zara. From there you can sort by size, dress length, color, condition, and, of course, price.

Electronics

We see this category once again in March, but with an interesting twist. Shoppers are picking up laptops and gaming consoles with money to burn from tax refunds. You can find an entire section of eBay Refurbished laptops at up to 70% off.

Sporting Goods

You’ll see deals on equipment and gear for outdoor activities, like hiking, running, and cycling. Now would be the time to check out deals direct from brands themselves through the eBay Brand Outlet. Right now we’re seeing up to 65% off on New Balance and up to 82% off Callaway pre-owned golf gear. 

Health and Beauty

In March specifically, you’ll find the deals on dietary supplements, skin care products, and health monitoring devices. When we last checked, we found a Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch 3 with Fitness Tracking & Health Monitoring for $179.95 — a 49% savings.

What are the best things to buy on eBay?

First things first: the best things to buy on eBay are the ones that offer you the biggest discount (like 50% or more). That said, when people are considering what to buy on eBay, know that their most popular categories are fashion, electronics, home and garden, collectibles, and (wait for it) motors. Yes, motors — car parts. This is a significant part of eBay's business with demand for parts & accessories, plus buying and selling cars, motorcycles, and other motor vehicles.

What's selling on eBay right now?

Uh, just about everything. We like to monitor the Daily Deals section where there are all sorts of trending categories. We're seeing everything from Pokemon cards at 40% off to a PlayStation 5 at up to 17% off. There's also a seasonal eBay Sales & Events page so you can see what's trending at any given moment.

Can I buy on eBay without an account?

Yes, so long as the item you're purchasing is a Buy It Now listing and rings up under $5,000. Remember that if the item you're eyeing is an auction listing, costs more than $5K, or is something you want to make a best offer on, you'll have to sign up for an eBay account.

How do you pay on eBay?

You can use the usual suspects to pay on eBay — credit cards, debit cards, PayPal, Apple Pay, and Google Pay. However if you're using a pickup option instead of shipping, there are some cases where purchases can be made with checks, money orders, and cash (these are just less common ways to pay on eBay).

To complete a transaction in most cases you simply:

  1. Click on 'Buy It Now'.

  2. Then click 'Go to checkout'.

  3. Enter your 'Ship to' address, then your 'Pay with' information.

  4. At this point you can apply any applicable coupons in the 'Add coupons' box if your item is eligible.

  5. Finally, click 'Confirm and Pay'.
