5 Proven Tips for Making Money Selling on eBay

A recommended way to start eBay Business is to know how to buy on ebay.

Actually, making money on eBay first requires that you buy items on eBay prior to selling items so you can earn a good reputation. A good reputation means paying on time and being honest in any transaction.

When you know how to buy, that is, how to evaluate, how much to pay for an item and the strategy of bidding, you have walked in those shoes.

This gives you a perspective for selling items.

Now is the time for trial and error selling on eBay.

Real everyday people start eBay Business by selling stuff lying around in the garage,  basement and goods they find at yard sales, flea markets and thrift stores before graduating into the big time of selling wholesale bulk merchandise from liquidators and/or wholesalers.

Before we get carried away, let's start with some basic proven tips that almost ensure significant income travels your way.

If you just want to dabble in selling stuff on eBay for entertainment and pocket change, that’s A-OK.

But, if you r desire is making money with eBay, as a part time or full time business, then you need to hit the pause button and educate yourself on the best ways to supplement or to earn a significant income.

Always, always provide free shipping!!

Check the shipping rate costs found on eBay and factor that into your selling price. Your competition does.


What are the best products to sell?

Again, eBay has stastics and data for this.

But, the proven way for many successful entrepreneurs is to follow the guidelines and experiences of Carlos Ferraro and Jim Cockrum.

What is thought to be the best selling items is not your key to success.

It’s finding the best items, that presented in the marketplace correctly, will drive the most revenue to you. Carlos and Jim will explain how you do this.


Presentation of your product is everything!

Pictures, pictures and more pictures plus an honest inviting description invites the highest auction price. Remember, filling a need or creating a need is what sells products.


Use the most popular keywords to describe your product. Your product has to be found. If it is not, then ZERO!

Again, educate yourself. Carlos and Jim hold the key.
