How should I go about selling on ebay?

January 18th, 2013 6 comments

I am interested in trying to sell on ebay, but I’m not sure where to go to find things to sell. Is there anyone who sells things on ebay who is willing to share this valuable information? I would really appreciate it.

A friend sells a truckload of computers every month and he gets them for free or some sort at the rubbish dumps.
I sometimes help him fix them but mostly they work.
He makes $10.000 a month.

How to Make Money on Ebay – Where Do I Start?

May 3rd, 2012 3 comments

As an eBay Consultant, one question I get from a lot of people is, “How do I even start on eBay?”

First of all, start small. Set up an eBay account and buy a few things to learn the process and get a feel for how eBay works. eBay and working at home is not for everyone. And it is ok if it isn’t right for you. Sell some of your own things before you invest any money in other products to sell. Understand that eBay is more than taking pictures and working on the computer – you need to be familiar with how to edit photos, shipping, customer service, and Paypal. Take your time and learn about these things before you jump in and go for it full-time.

Once you are comfortable with the whole process, don’t be afraid to take a risk every now and then. I am often asked, “But what if you buy an item and it doesn’t sell?” Well, that’s ok. You can always relist it. You can mark it down and sell it for what you paid for it and move on. You don’t want to buy a truckload of 1,000 items without having tested them out first, but you do want to experiment with different products – you may find something profitable to sell on a regular basis.

Make small investments and try new products to test them out and see what kind of results you’ll get. Don’t be afraid to experiment with new products and try new things. eBay is constantly evolving and no trend will last forever. Experience is the best teacher.

Join some eBay groups thru Yahoo Groups, Google Groups, or on the eBay forums. You can learn valuable information by talking to other sellers and comparing notes.

Read blogs, article sites (like this one), and eBooks on eBay selling. Be careful not to get duped into buying “Get Rich on eBay” kits. As a power seller with over 4 years experience, and 13,000 sales, I am here to tell you that you aren’t going to get rich selling on eBay, very few actually do. I will tell you that eBay selling is fun, profitable, and a convenient way to make money from home. eBay is just like any other entrepreneurial adventure – it takes time, patience, dedication, and hard work.
