In case you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past decade, has emerged as the premiere auction-platform website with over $20 billion worth of goods expected to go up for auction this year alone.
EBay is by far our favorite auction site to both buy and sell. With millions of items up for sale on a monthly basis, we have found that many of those items often contain common misspellings. This presents a goldmine of an opportunity for buyers, and also benefits sellers by helping them sell items they may not have realized were misspelled.
Example: John Doe lists his grandfather’s antique clock for auction under the category Antiques, but unintentionally misspells “antiqu clock”. Conducting a search on eBay you will find thousands of search results for the query “antique clock“, but only a few for the misspelling “antiqu clock“. Few buyers will ever see this listing resulting in low bidding competition for that auction.
Our handy eBay misspelling tool will help you search and find eBay items with low bidding competition that are often overlooked. If you don’t want to keep the item you bought for dirt cheap you can always list the item for sale (correctly spelled of course) and generate large profits with this method. You could quite possibly be the proud new owner of a new $2000 “dimond bracelet” for only $20.
The only limits are your drive and your imagination so have fun experimenting with our handy eBay misspelling tool.
Cost the Seller $503,000.00
What is the most expensive item ever misspelled on eBay?
A gentleman, who will go down on record guilty of committing the most costly eBay misspelling blunder in history, lost somewhere to the tune of $503,000.00.
He was selling as his auction described:
an actual museum quality sealed and intact bottle of Samuel Allsopp’s Arctic Ale brewed for the 1852 Expedition to the Arctic lead by Sir Edward Belcher. This bottle of beer is likely the rarest, oldest, and most documented bottle of beer in existence! Not to mention the unbelievably unique history surrounding it. Accompanying the bottle is an actual limited handwritten history about the bottle itself
His auction title was misspelled on eBay as:
It would have took the seller all but a minute to research the correct spelling of the item he was spelling (it was printed on the bottle). The correct spelling should be:
Allsopp’s Artic Ale. Full and Corked with a Wax Seal
So as it turns out he listed the auction as is with only the above paragraph as a description and only 3 photos. The auction received a mere 169 views with 2 bids. The winning bid was for the final amount of $304.00
The buyer, knowing what an immense blunder this was on the sellers part proceeded to re-list the item on eBay with this title:
He used 13 exceptional photographs and somewhere to the tune of 30 paragraphs giving the complete history of the Allsopps Ale bottle. Using the correct spelling, the auction received 74,064 views, 157 bids and a final winning bid of $503,300.00.

A number of well-known brands disappeared in the last year in large partly due to economic forces. Many of them were in the retail industry, led by Circuit City. ATA and Aloha airlines are gone. Gateway Computers has effectively disappeared after being bought by Acer. It still has a website, but the brand is no longer marketed.
As the recession deepens and stretches out quarter after quarter, more companies will close or will shut divisions. More brands will disappear because their parents firms fold or can no longer afford to support them. Other brands will be obliterated by mergers.
We have compiled a list of the top brands that are in danger of disappearing. Some you may be able to capitalize from with an misspelled eBay search (or correctly spelled) by purchasing their products which may soon be extremely rare and valuable.
