Niche eBay Product - Geocaching Supplies


Geocaching is a popular game that is played around the world. It’s pronounced geo-cashing, and is similar to a treasure hunt. The player (called a geocacher), hides something (called a geocache), and uses a GPS to determine its exact location. Then they post the location online for other people to search for. The player can also be the one searching – you can find locations online and use your GPS to search for the geocache.

Geocaching is a great sport/hobby/game for outdoorsy people. The great thing is that you don’t need a lot of equipment – just a GPS. Geocaching can be a really fun adventure!

A great niche for eBay is geocaching gear. The typical beginning retail price for a GPS (in the U.S.) is $80. However, it is possible to find a great deal that can then be resold. GPSs are like most technology – they can be simple or very complicated. The majority of geocachers just want a simple version. Some GPSs also have the ability to connect to a computer.

Trail equipment is good to sell as well. Geocachers need similar items to hikers or campers – flashlights, pocket knives, insulated water bottles, hiking boots, guide books, etc. Even a how-to guide for geocaching may do well.

And of course, don’t forget items to fill the cache. All caches have log books so that everyone who finds it can sign their name and leave a little bit of information. Any type of notebook can work for this. Geocachers also need items to leave in caches. It’s normal for players to take an item and leave one of their own when they find a cache. Items range from toys and dollar store items to a CD, book, or handmade item.
