I would like to start an internet business and would like to know where to start?

I am looking for detailed steps since I have no computer background.

Hi there,

From my own experience i can highly recommend the following as a way of making money out of eBay WITHOUT having to sell anything.

Take a look at the package on offer. I did and after a bit of a learning curve, I had a website that was making me around $160 a month with minimal effort. So minimal in fact, I left it entirely to make money month by month and ‘sales’ have declined since – due to my own neglect. Money for old rope my dad called it! I probably made $800 out of that site and you can make as many sites as you can think of eBay niches to base them on. if you look at the forum, its full of people who have managed to give up their day job to become ebay partner affiliates. Its also packed full of advice relating to other ways of making cash on the net not related to ebay. There IS a learning curve but it gets easier as you go along and these is plenty of help. Its a turnkey product in theory although you do have to add content and make it unique etc

This is my ‘neglected’ site:

The US version:

Hope that helps!

What are typical terms for an auction company to sell household items?

My dad past away and would like a company to liquidate all his household items and car. What should I expect from an auction company in terms of percentage or fees?

10% of every items selling bid.

How much should an auction house charge for selling your items?

My dad put a lot of items up for sale in an auction house which all together sold for about 5 grand, but the auction house will be getting 4 grand leaving him with just 1 grand

That doesn’t sound right to me; how much do auction houses usually charge for selling your stuff

30% is a normal fee. Getting charged 80% is almost criminal. What does his agreement with the auction house state???

Ebay: Tips on selling my Nintendo 64 and games?

July 7th, 2012 2 comments

Hey! I am ready to sell my (fully working) Nintendo 64 on Ebay, as well as the controllers and games etc. I was just wondering if anyone could give me some tips for a successful sale. Below I am going to put a few bulletpoints but anythign is most appreciated:

Should I sell them in a bundle or separately?
How long should I auction them for?
Should I set a BUY NOW price?
What should I do for shipping?

Please answer these in more than a "yes/no" manner and add anything else, thanks!

This will be my first sale.

I think you should sell the system with the controllers, but sell the games separately.

I would say set the auction to at least 3 days, maybe a week.

Don’t set a buy it now price unless you have done a lot of research to see what they will sell for on eBay – you don’t want to sell them for less than they are worth.

Shipping is your own preference – find out how much it would cost to ship from wherever it is you would like to ship (USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc.) and charge accordingly. I use FedEx Ground on eBay (because my dad has an account there). I would suggest saying no international shipping on the listing somewhere – it can be a pain in the butt.

Also, an extra tip – people (well most people anyway, especially me) are reluctant to buy from first-time sellers. You may be able to sell your stuff for more if you have a friend/family member with an eBay account that they have sold from before.
