Let’s be honest, how many of us have spent hours on end searching and buying stuff on Ebay? It’s true, the vast majority of us spend countless hours browsing the many auctions on Ebay, sometime buying, sometimes just window shopping. What’s fantastic about Ebay is the large number of money making opportunities; opportunities that you can take advantage of right now to make some extra money!
Obviously the easiest way is to sell your own stuff. Clean out the closet, clean out the spare bedroom, clean out the garage. I’m sure you’ll find plenty of items you didn’t even know you had. Post those items and make money on Ebay! You can even visit garage sales and thrift stores and buy merchandise at a steep discount and sell it for profit. Another good way to get merchandise to sell is to hit up the retail stores for clearance sales. See a 75% off sale on a nice camera? Imagine how much you could get for that camera on Ebay with very little out of pocket expense.
No reason to just stop at listing your own stuff. I’m sure your friends and family have a ton of items they would love to sell but just don’t have the time to list them. You can do that for them, taking the photos, posting the items and even doing the shipping when the auction closes, making a nice commission in the process.
You can also make money on Ebay by making product referrals with the Ebay Affiliate Program. Your Ebay store essentially acts as a display window; you don’t sell the products, you just promote them.
Selling on Ebay is a great way to bring in an extra stream of income. Be advised, though, with every opportunity to make extra cash, it takes hard work! You need to have easy access to the internet to deal with questions from buyers and potential buyers. You have to be able to pack and ship your goods in a timely fashion. Also be aware that Ebay charges fees for both listing items and for items that sell successfully.
So what are you waiting for? See what’s in that closet of yours and get selling on Ebay. It’s like opening up a store in the world’s biggest shopping mall!
