    Ebay riches

    Ok so ive been spending a lot of time on ebay lately. Im basicaly looking for information from you all on how to make some moey on it.

    I read an article the other day where some guy claims to have made £3000 in a week for 5 hours work. Now to be honest I smelt BS and if it were that easy than surely every one would be doing it.

    Anybody got some thoughts on this

    The EBAY idea has been played out. If you would've caught on it in its early stages than you could've been making some serious money now. Nowadays, everyone in there right mind is trying to make money off EBAY or trying to become a big timer seller. Most people or sellers that are making money on there have been doing it for quite sometime now and have already established a name/reputation. That doesn't mean you can still sell stuff on there and not make money. My mother sells books and other small things, but let's be honest.. it's just a hobby for her.

    I personally think it's all a bunch of ugly shit, but people buy the hell out if it!

    Ebay can be a very useful tool to turn someone else's garbage into your riches and vice versa. Personally, I've used Ebay to buy and sell many things. If it werent for Ebay I wuold have had a harder time selling half my bikes and cars.

    eBay is like any others business... the real opportunity with eBay is that you can start a business withthout any overheads (employees, sales points, etc...)

    If you can get your hand on some great products and sell them a good price youll get buyers... I own a web-site/e-commerce business... we do e-commerce web sites for all kinds of stuff and my clients who success on the internet have great and original products.

    Every year we have clients investing alot of money in internet business wich crash in the same year because the products they were selling is crap...

    So keeps your eyes open and try to get some great products batch and then try to sell them on eBay all over the world... You will make money...

    Long story short...

    My dad has a old friend, probably in his late 60's now...

    Moved to Florida when he retired from his job up north a few years
    back... Was visiting last year when I was over my parents and we
    talked for along time about shit, knew I had a sales background...

    Plain and simple told me in only 15 hours a week, rarely up to 20 hours
    a week he makes Net over $100,000K per year on eBay and he's out
    golfing 3-4 times per week and still has time to chase the woman, if
    you can call it chasing them at his age... lol

    Based on the talk, the car he was driving and the rolex on his wrist I'm
    pretty sure he was being honest with me... I don't think he'd be lying
    to my face when he and my dad go back over 40 years...

    So yeah I think you can make a good amount of cash off ebay if you
    have a good idea of what products to sell and a solid supply chain to
    keep them instock...

    Swole is correct-the number one benefit is no heavy overhead, after that it's no different that any other business-buy for a nickle sell for a dime...
