Do you make money on Ebay?

Avertisements

HI, I have been using Ebay for a long time and really live it. But I was always interesting how people make money on it. If you just want to sell your old stuff it is easy, but what about is you already sold all :D How people manage to offer so low prises for different products.

Yes, man, that's easy. You can just add some service like buy Iphone unlock it and sell for 50-100$ extra bucks.
Or make a forecast - what will be popular in future and store it.

I sell on ebay but only a small percentage of my online sales.

It just kind of sticks in my craw that I pay a final value fee and then also pay a transaction fee to Paypal which is also owned by ebay. It's like they are getting me at both ends.

I much rather focus the majority of sales off my own sites.

Cheers,
Zac

I would check out the book Ebay Selling for Dummies. It's the most comprehensive guide I have seen. The power sellers get products wholesale from wholesale providers. I've never done anything on ebay other than sell old stuff but it can be done.

To do it full time you need to get wholesale rates on products but you can't always get thaty straight away. It isn't a 'quick-fix' option it is just th esame as every other business.
It is handy thought for making a bit of spare cash for the junk that otherwise would be sat up in your loft collecting dust.

LOL,

Well maybe ebay found my post...NOT. :lol:

But I did get promoted to top rated power seller recently just due to my volume and feedback which gave me a huge discount in final value fees which I must admit makes me think I'll put a bit more effort into my ebay store.

I was using primarily for international orders, but now It's worth my while to put a bit more effort into it.

I would sell on ebay but can't find any dropshippers with low enough prices. Does anyone know of any?

That's the basic jist of it, but you need to know where to find the goods. There is also another way to sell on ebay without having to actually sell physical goods, which has proven to be the real money maker for a lot of people.

Ebay is a pretty good site, but I really wish they give the suppliers/sellers more rights/security than they currently give.

I make the odd bits of money from ebay, but I don't make megabucks. To be honest, I don't try hard enough.

To make money, I write articles for people, but I do like to sell the odd items on Ebay.

The best way to do it (I find) is to pick up REAL bargains from second hand shops or other shops where they're having sales and clearances. If you get a really really good bargain, you can usually make quite a bit on Ebay.

For example, a popular box of perfume could sell for $30 whereas you've only bought it for $10.

I suppose that's obvious, really.

But what I'm trying to say is...don't just stop at your "old junk", actually buy things to sell on Ebay!

I used to sell on Ebay but because some of the fees weren't feasible when selling things for under $10, I decided to start selling on eCrater which is a free Ebay alternative.

Selling on ebay works but varolo.com/village/Yakscher is the best for me. it isn't a normal PPC but it is better. It is completely free and if yo know a lot of people this can be very worth while....just check it out!
