Ebay is a very powerful Internet tool, it enables you to market and advertise your products to millions of people for usually just a few pence and a few clicks on a mouse. This is how it is so popular, and is the reason that so many people are currently making a living from using Ebay to sell their goods or services.
Anyone can sell something on the Ebay auction website. From old jumpers to the latest DVD series of Lost. Obviously though if you are selling odd bits and pieces from around your house then you are eventually going to run out of things to sell, which is going to be a problem if you want to earn a living from Ebay. The way around this problem would be to become a wholesale seller. This will involve purchasing items in bulk at cut trade prices, which you will then sell on individually on Ebay or other websites.
The hardest task would have to be choosing a product that you are going to sell and market on Ebay and this is something you should think about carefully before doing. Try and perform plenty of research before jumping in and purchasing a job lot of 100 Acorn computers. Chances are that you will find them pretty hard to shift. Try and chose a product or area that you are knowledgeable in, and decide on a product which isn't going to be impossible to sell on. Try and stay in tune with the latest fashions and trends, and always keep your eye on this when it comes to choosing items to sell. Perhaps invest in a job lot of Ipod's or one of the latest gadgets, and have a go at selling these on first.
Obviously when looking for wholesale products that you are going to try and sell on, you will have to be careful for dodgy deals. Be careful to try and ensure that you aren't purchasing faulty or stolen goods, if this is at all possible. Stay clear of the lots that seem too good to be true ' 100 IPO's for £100 can't be a safe deal. Use common sense when judging which items to invest in.
Probably the best place to look for job lots or wholesale items would be on Ebay itself. This seems to be one of the most popular places to sell products, and I know that they now have their own dedicated wholesale section on their auction site.
As mentioned earlier, make sure you do plenty of research before venturing in to selling or buying on Ebay. Think everything through carefully; if you are going to purchase a job lot of items, how will you arrange for them to get delivered safely and quickly to you? Where will you be able to store the products safely before trying to sell them on? Where are you going to try and sell them, and to whom? How are you going to deliver these items to potential buyers? Will you need to start contributing TAX or VAT after selling the items on? Etc, etc. There are plenty of points that need to be considered before even starting to think about becoming a wholesaler on the Ebay auction website.
Thousands of people now make a living from using Ebay, and so there's no reason why you can' as well. It will take time, patience and a lot of research before you should start though, but if successful this will no doubt be worth it. The amount of money which you can earn will depend on the purchases and decisions that you make, so inevitably it is completely up to you whether you can successfully make a living working from home using the Ebay auction website.
