I use it a lot. Special as a buyer, and did business with countries all over the world, Canada, China, Thailand, USA, France, Ireland, and it´s a good place to sell and to buy stuff. I´ve earn money just for buying there instead on my countries shops. Used it, you´ll not regret.

First you sign in. Then you sign at paypal to have a account (int´s the easiest way to pat and receive in ebay), you can find the link at my site http://www.braveheartwarrior.bravehost.com. Then you find and buy what you want. If you wish you can email me.

I do but it's not much. I sell the lap quilts I make on ebay. During the holidays I make about $500 a month. It's more of a hobby. I have a second business that I hope will be paying more. I just began so we shall see.

My mom sells stuff on ebay. mostly antiques. shes been doing ok but I think she loses money at the same time cause sometimes people dont buy what shes selling so she lost money there. since they charge you a fee to put stuff up. shes still makes some good money though

We've been selling on ebay for 8 years now, and we make good profit. We first started out on household, garage items that didnt' bring much. THen we discovered estate sales. You don't have to spend alot to make alot. If we know we can't tripple our money on something we won't buy it. The secret is doing your research BEFORE buying. Antiques, vintage items sell well. Don't be afraid to go through and bid or buy the small boxed of junk, sometime you find your most profitable treasures in what other think is junk. We used to get laughed at when we bid on junk boxes at estate auctions, until the word go out we were making some good money for our junk on ebay. Now the same people that were laughing, now watch what we bid on,and low and behold you see them bidding on anything we bid on, because they know we are after 1 item in that box of junk. OUr latest find was: My husband paid $3 for a small box of dirty tools. When we got home we found an old brass padlock at the bottom. I tossed it a side for a few day into the "junk" pile ready for the trash. Something just got me about the lock and I decided to research it on ebay. Low and behold simalar, but not excact, locks were selling for about $17.oo, so naturally I decided to keep the lock. A few days later I did another search and I found one exactly like mine that sold for a wopping $400.00. I listed mine and got $330.00. Just goes to show you don't considerate junk until you research it. The cheap looking vintage jewelry and brooches sell well too, especially the signed stuff. If you want to see what sells look up my ebay id: handfullat5

We have had a blast with ebay. You just research whatever you want to sell on ebay BEFORE you spend money on putting it up. Garage sales are GREAT for finding items. We have also sold kids clothing, video games, toys, and such. We have even purchased some things from the local Wal-mart, put them up on ebay and turned a profit. The catch is the items have to be hard to find. People will pay for convience. Also if you watch, one or two days a month you can list items in a certain format on ebay for only a dime. The don't send the e-mails out til that day though. My advice is to already have the auction saved in your seller acount. That way you can put it up right away when you recieve the e-mail. Hope this helps!

If you're familiar with eBay, one thing you can do is become an agent--in other words, you sell things for people who have items but don't have the time or knowledge to put things on eBay themselves. Youi photograph the item, list in on eBay, run the auction, ship the item to the winning bidder, etc. In return you split the winning amount with the item's original owner 50/50.
