How To Make Money on Ebay (1)

Making Money on Ebay


Are you looking for a way to supplement your income?

Maybe you want a bit of extra spending cash.

Or perhaps with the economy keeping employment opportunities
scare,  
finding alternative ways to make money is crucial to you making
ends meet.

Let’s explore the options of working from home using ebay!

Ebay is the fastest, easiest way to sell items from around
your home and earn the most money.
Not only is using ebay easy, but it is much safer than interacting
with strangers on 
Craig’s List and it is going to net you so much more than a
garage sale.  
A great way to start is to
take a laundry basket and go to each room in your house.
 Find items that you don’t
need, haven’t used in 6 months or want to get rid of.
Try to find 10 items.
Then go to ebay and search for the items you have in your basket.
Are there any oh your items that are worth some money?
Did you see other items on ebay that you have in
your home that are
making money that you would want to sell?
You may be asking; "I found after searching that I do have a big money item
here,
           but some are only selling for $5 -$20 dollars. Is it even worth it?"
Well, let’s look at this
scenario;
if you were able to go get a job away from home
for minimum wage you
would be making approx. $7.00 per hour.
Don’t forget gas, food, uniform and other work related expenses.
If you work at home for an hour taking pictures
of your item,
 typing up a description and listing your sale on ebay,
is it worth at least minimum wage?
You
bet it is!
And the more you do it, the faster you get and this increases your
income per hour.
I recommend not selling
items for less than $5.00
on ebay because the fees will not make it worth your
time.
Remember to calculate the fees into your profit/loss.
I look at the fees
as paying a reasonable price for ebay's services, security,
venue and of course their
advertising and reputation!
It is definitely worth it.
People often ask; “Wouldn’t it be easier to just have a garage sale?”
Straight answer, No.
 Garage sales are very
time consuming and end up being
more work for a LOT less money.
For example, if you have a pair of name brand jeans in good
condition,
you might sell them for .50 cents to $5 at a garage sale.
Go on ebay and look at the price of those
same jeans.
They could be selling for  $10 to  $50 or more depending on the brand!
Or lets say that you have a pile of nice clothes that your
child has outgrown.
You have tagged your items and set them out at a garage
sale.
Inevitably people will pick up a big pile of your things
 and offer you a
couple bucks for everything,
 leaving you with a huge loss on already dirt cheap
prices.
 Now go to ebay and search your child’s clothing size and the word “lot”.
 You will see for yourself how high people are bidding on these piles of clothes!
You are sure to
make so much more than you would having a garage sale.
But wait!
The garage sale can factor in to this equation for
you to make money at home!!
Use garage sales to find your inventory!
  Spend some time on ebay finding out what is
selling well then
YOU go to the garage sales
and buy a pair of jeans for a
quarter and re-sell them on ebay for $20.
You get the picture?
Better yet…
Have internet on your phone?
Pull up ebay when you are at
garage sales.
When you see an item that you think might be worth something,
look it up (discreetly of course) and if it is selling at a price you like
then
snatch it up, take it home, and sell it!
Name Brand Purses and clothing,
antiques, kids clothes, toys, camera equipment,
books and more can be found for
pennies at garage sales
 and resold for a profitable income.
I often hear that many people are intimidated by the thought
of going through
 the steps to sell on ebay, but ebay has made their site so
user friendly
that it is fool-proof.
 It is a supportive and
interactive site that guides you through the processes.
Plus, there are many features to assist you
like printing labels and postage from home,
 FAQ and forums, growth strategy articles, seller protection, and
so much more.
You can do it!
