HI friends while surfing net I have come accross with a nice artical on Earning Money From eBay. Idea seems to be preety good. I need your guidance ... Earning Money From eBay If you are an aspiring internet entrepreneur, Ebay offers you many opportunities and possibilities. Along with the consistent growth in the internet come new and exciting opportunities for people from all walks of life. Regardless of your interests, your level of skill and your budget, there is an opportunity for you to make money online. Apart from being the biggest marketplace in the world, Ebay has a level of credibility, an established market presence and a system that very few online business opportunities can compete with. The question then is how to make money off Ebay? Essentially there are two ways to make money off Ebay. You can either make money by selling goods or you can make money by promoting goods. These two business models are vastly different and each carries their own advantages and disadvantages. As both can be very profitable, the real determining factor will be your personal preferences more than anything else. By opening your own Ebay store you can sell virtually anything to anybody anywhere in the world. Ebay's market domination and global appeal makes it one of the strongest businesses in the world and by putting your own store in their marketplace you can claim your share. Think of Ebay as the largest shopping mall in the world and by opening your own Ebay store, you get to have a shop in this mall. One of the most powerful aspects of having an Ebay store is that you automatically have a huge client base right at your doorstep. You also tap straight into Ebay's tried and tested system which can be real nightmare if you were to open your own store 'in the middle of nowhere'. As good as all this might sound, owning your own store can be hard work and dealing with customers, inventory and shipping can proof to be too much for some. This is where the second 'how to make money off Ebay' comes in. Since you can also earn money promoting products, you can make money without actually selling anything. Although the profit margins are lot smaller the earning potential is just as big. With Ebay's affiliate program you can earn a commission by simply making product referrals and instead of opening your own store that sell actual products, you can open your store that simply acts as a display window. Without actually selling anything, your affiliate Ebay store will simply promote other people's products and your role will not be that of 'shop owner' but one of 'marketer' and promoter. If you are looking for ways how to make money off Ebay without dealing with all the hassle of actually running a store, an affiliate store might just be the ideal solution. Making money online is simply a numbers game and regardless of whether you open your own Ebay store or whether you just promote products to earn affiliate commission, you can tap into the power of Ebay as the world biggest marketplace. The ability to sell anything to anyone anywhere in the world is indeed a huge opportunity and by letting your creative juices flow and coming up with some creative ideas, you too can make money off Ebay. Many skeptics will tell you that the ‘Ebay wave’ is over, but nothing could be further from the truth. There are still plenty of ways to make money off Ebay, but it all comes down to actually doing it. The only unsuccessful attempt is the one you never make. An estimated 500,000 people in the US alone earn a full time income on Ebay and there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn't. If you are committed, eager and hungry to succeed, you will make it on Ebay.

I did this. The only problem is that everyone has the same products. So if everyone is selling them the people buying them have a large choice. I found some people were selling them at cost so there was no way to make that extra income. If you are going to use ebay to sell items maybe think about items you own and start selling those. I buy a lot on ebay and have sold a couple of things. Ebay is a great site I love it but I just didn't get anywhere with the site you are referring to. Best of luck to you though if you are doing it.

I used to sell on eBay. I am a member of a mentoring group there still. There is this guy who is one of the moderators who is quite honestly a genius. He grabs onto any new technology and makes it work for him. And he willingly shares his knowledge with everyone who will listen. For instance he got a hold of the Squidoo craze and had his lens in the top 100 in no time. Check it out here's the link: http://www.squidoo.com/growyourebaystoresales/ (I hope I don't get in trouble for posting the link. :-( ) Good luck

I sell myself on ebay. I don't have a store but I just sale on there every once in a while . I take pictures to upload to sell on there. Just go to ebay and at the top where it says sale. i think you need a debt card to get stared.

You can find 1000s of articles out there on topics like this, however all articles have been read by millions of people and no matter what you think about doing on ebay, then it has already been done. So my point is that no matter what it's not easy to make money on ebay. It can be done, but it's not easy.

All that i can say is that it is not easy to earn money at ebay unless you can find lots of goods to sell ,somemore products plus shipping cost gonna be more expensive at time . But i seen some store in ebay with regular customers buying from them .so i think they might be really earning big time money out there each day

i have realised that ebay is a wonderful oppurtunity for those who want to sell products starting their own e-bay store.u can have customers from virutally everywhere in the world.but this affilate programme mentioned seems to be more hazzle free.let all of those who are currently selling and others make note of this.
