Can eBay items like xbox 360 controller and battery with charger?

December 28th, 2012 2 comments

I bought a Xbox 360 arcade and want one more controller. Also need 2 rechargeable batteries with one USB charger.
Need some tips and advice on buying these stuff.

Make sure the seller has 100% positive feedback. Check out the comments that other buyers and sellers have left for them and what they’ve left for others too. Some people don’t leave feedback even after you’ve left it for them. It’s happened to me several times. Also, go with a controller that says it’s in the package still and actually shows a real picture of the item for sale instead of one of the stock photos. Try looking for the controllers that come with a Play and Charge kit with them. The white ones like that are harder to find on there, but you’ll see some of the black and red ones. Ask any questions you may have and check out which auctions others are bidding on. Go with one with either free shipping or a reasonable amount. Controllers cost around $6 to ship; a bit more if they’re sending it Priority. I always set mine with free shipping and send them Priority. Make sure you have a Paypal account so you’re covered if anything bad happens.

How do you make money on Ebay?

Yeah, I know you sell items and hopefully make a profit. However, I was looking for more information on legitimate wholesalers, if it’s smart to only use dropshipping wholesalers, or to just drive around and hopefully find goods that are popular on sale or clearance and resell them using ebay.

Thanks so much, just trying to get started.

It is difficult to make any money by buying wholesale and reselling on eBay because so many other people are already buying things from the same wholesalers. It is very competitive so you have to keep your prices low to sell so there is usually a very low profit margin on each item sold.

Drop shippers can be kind of scary because you have no control. You can’t see the product before it is shipped and you need to depend on them to ship the item promptly. If things ship slow or arrive damaged it hurts your seller feedback and you get negatives. It can also be a mess to deal with returns of damaged items since you have to deal with the drop shipper. I have used a few drop shippers, but only those that I have tested several times by making purchases and have the items shipped to me to make sure they are dependable.

People who make the most on eBay are the ones who search estate sales, garage sales, swap meets, liquidators, quitting business sales, Craig’s list, etc. for items that are being sold at well below their value and re-sell them. Of course you need to become knowledgeable about the value of the items you see and spend most of your spare time looking for items to sell.

The MOST TRAGIC Mistake a New Marketer Almost ALWAYS Makes

So… you’re a new marketer, and you want to make extra money or
even perhaps a great living! One of the first things you do is
join an affiliate program or downline club of some sort. Or
maybe even you are trying your hand at Ebay or another auction
service by marketing some nicely profitable product. Now, once
you have some sort of online business vehicle, your mind must
gravitate to exactly what kind of advertising to generate sales
or memberships.

Online business is an awful lot like regular advertising. What
draws you to a business in your home town? Coupons? Specials?
Give-aways? A personal recommendation from a friend or trusted

Oh yes- and here is a little secret that is often not known or

When it comes to building any kind of business online you do the
same thing! Give away a free report, an informative ebook, a
trial software, an online course, or maybe a subscription to a
free newsletter or ezine. This is just simply the way it is done
with online business, period. But here is the most critical
part… you MUST capture the name and email address FIRST before
you give access to it!

It is widely known by all of the top marketers online that your
PRIMARY task to be successful is to compile a list of people
(prospective customers) that are interested in the type of thing
you are giving away! This is so easy to do with an
autoresponder. They just fill a form, and they are automatically
added to your list, and then are redirected to your download
page or membership site.

Then the next task is to automatically send a series of messages
with that autoresponder that tell more about the reasons why
your product or products (or membership program) are BENEFICIAL
to them! WHY? Because it is infinitely better to contact a
prospect several times rather than only once. It is a proven
fact that most people will NOT buy from you or join your program
until they have been approached at least 5 to 7 times. This is
done as I said, automatically, on a timed basis slowly tapering
off until it is a slow drip of messages until they buy or join-
or unsubscribe from your list. And when you run special
promotions of any kind, a feature of the best autoresponders
allows you to broadcast to your entire list any time you want.
This is how many marketers can make huge amounts of money and
sales ON DEMAND- whenever and as often as they like!

Details about which autoresponders are best, and the techniques
of developing a list and how often to mail to that list are
subjects that deserve more time and attention than can be given
here… but suffice it to say that if YOU are not FIRST
developing a list, and then marketing to your list AFTERWARDS-
you’re just missing the boat!

Pure and simple!

So if you are advertising an affiliate link, or your products’
sale page… or anything other than your free subscription,
report, ebook, or course- it can indeed be the most tragic
mistake you can make in your online business strategy!

If this is you, pull back and regroup, and completely re-think
your marketing strategy now before you lose too much time,
money, energy, or motivation.

And remember… BUILD your LIST!
