Older video games, VHS Movies, cassettes ,8 tracks, encyclopedia sets,old computers, old cell phones . Millions of people shop on ebay. Fortunatly for you some of them lack good taste or good sense. There are so many different people out there with so many different tastes you can almost sell anything.


Always try to think beyond your own likes and preferences. Is there demad for your item I sell many things that I would never buy for myself. Can you immagine the looks I get when sorting through crochet pattern books or inspecting women's shoes? Don't be afraid to try sellin items you are unfamilliar with. Do your research and make some unexpected money.

Getting Started

I will be giving a history of how my EBAY business has developed  and how it continues to grow. I will share my mistakes so you can avoid them and also let you in on the secrets I have learned along the way. I have been selling for profit for 2 years. It started as a dream and has finally started making real money. I offer realistic advice for those getting started. I will not tell you to quit your job and you will not make millions, but you can make extra money to help pay the bills and  have extra spending money. I hope one day to be able to EBAY full time but all businesses need time to grow. If you invest the time and you enjoy what you are doing you will make money. It is not difficult.

When I first got started selling I had found a reference set for $3. It was on stamp collecting. I do not collect stamps but I did as a child and knew the multi volume set had value. I bought the set just because I knew it was valuable and what a shame it would be to pass up such a great deal. You do not even have to actively search for things to sell. You will see items from time to time that are great deals and if you already have an account open you have a way to get the value out of your great purchase. That was the only reason I started selling. I wanted to sell that book set. I soon began to see great buys everywhere. I did not want the items but I knew someone else would. I began collecting bargains and listing them when I was bored. That is all that is required to start. It will naturally grow from there.

Try to think of every possible way a buyer might look for your item and make sure each of those words are in your title. I sell a lot of Twilight book sets my title will look something like this

 "The Twilight Vampire Saga Complete 4 Volume book Set Stephanie Meyer Twilight- New Moon - Eclipse- Breaking Dawn - Complete Set  Romance Fiction fantasy Teen Young Adult

You never know what words someone will use to try to find the items they are looking for. If you miss their search word you might just miss a sale!
