Secrets of the eBay Income

Posted on Dec 26 2007

If you have been online for any length of time you have probably seen or even used eBay as either a seller or a buyer.  Through any research you can see that it is not unusual to make thousands of dollars a month by becoming an eBay seller.
For the next time you visit eBay, I want you to take a peek at how many ‘Power Sellers” there are; I guarantee you will find quite a few. Take into account that a requirement on eBay to become a “power seller” is that they make at least $1,000 a month.  All those people pulling in AT LEAST $1,000.  What about the “silver” power sellers? Well they make a minimum of $3,000 a month; and you know there are other levels, for instance the Gold level makes more than $10,000 platinum has to make $25,000 and even better, Titanium sellers must make at least $150,000 every month!
The fact that all these levels exist with several people in each category should give you an idea of the income potential for you.  Several of them never intended it to become a business; they just started selling things and didn’t stop.  Now there are plenty of people whose full time job is selling on eBay, just like my full time job is blogging.
Once they buy the stock of goods to sell everything else is profit. They don’t have to pay for location, staff, or any other overhead. There are several brick and mortar companies that do not make even half of the profit some of the power sellers make from home.
Even if you are not ready for a full time eBay job you can take advantage of free time to sell a little here and there, pack it up during the week and mail it on Saturdays.  Keep doing this until you have a substantial income, always on the lookout for bulk deals and sales.
Even better, eBay has no idea who you are, where you live, or what you look like; some of the power sellers are extreme in age, both young and elderly.  Some live out in the middle of nowhere while some live in big cities with lots of options.  eBay helps remove that barrier between those wealthy and poor, either one can sell on eBay.
Finding things to sell is really easy, just find items on sale, in bulk, or even from garage sales and list them for profit. Look for ‘lot’ sales online where you can get a huge quantity of something and turn around and sell them individually. You can even find things to sell on eBay itself.
To test to water before you go out and buy 500 of one item, start by selling things you have around the house, DVD’s, old clothing, shoes, etc.  The draw of eBay is the idea of something for everyone, the ‘junk’ you have in your basement may be worth something to someone online.
As you can see, it does not have to cost a fortune or take a computer savvy person to sell on ebay. Anyone can do it, all you need is a name, email and something to sell.
