Can you really make money on Ebay?

September 20th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Hubby and I will both be taking 16 hours in the Fall and we need to have some money coming in! Do you think I could make some decent money buying things at Estate Sales, and selling it on Ebay? If you or anyone you know makes a decent living from Ebay, please give me some tips!

Stay away from dropshippers – they’re death on ebay.

You MAY be able to make money if you can;

Pick the right stuff
Sell it when there’s demand and not much competition
Do it often enough.

Selling on ebay is pretty tough these days. Making a living doing it can be even tougher.

I’d suggest that you spend some time on "seller central", the main ebay forum for sellers;

They can tell you what you need to know.

    what if I could tell you that there’s a better way of making money…

    pardon me for being off-topic, but I think you’d have a better shot at making money with an opportunity I can share with you if you want to…

    because what you are suggesting would involve investing & than selling for profits…and since you’re looking to make money wouldn’t it make sense to find something that’ll make you money without any investment what so ever…

    Don’t mean to offend ya, just offering an option 🙂

    Well Jackie,
    Between a yes and no answer lies ‘perhaps’.

    The thing about eBay are the fees that tend to erode profits. If you are planning this to generate on-going income – it would be nice to have control of your contact list. With eBay, how do you offer items to all those happy buyers?
    Consider creating a website that works. One that will get presold traffic that finds you….. This is important as most sites, no matter how much they cost to set-up (think big company sites) easily get lost in the crowd of 56 million active sites.
    If there is interest, I’ll see if I can look out a couple of links that will help address such websites and also let you find wholesalers that will sell in small quantities. Some may even drop ship for you.
