The word is

Retail

With two, I negate

'Il' can be used to turn things around. Eg: Legal => Illegal

With three, I make you unwell

'ail' According to Google, The definition of ail is to feel sick or have pain.

With four, I’m the end

'tail' is a common term for ending. Sometimes used together. Like Tailend batsman in Cricket.

With all six, I’m fit to sell

'Retail' is the term used for a product to be sold.

I think the word could be -

Detail

Since,

'De' is a prefix for negation

and

'ail' is an affliction (makes you unwell)

then

'tail' is often used to describe the end of objects

And if you have all six

any object(like a painting or a craft) with a lot of detail is ready to be sold
