In fact I have tried to sell some products via the net for almost a year. I sold it in Taobao rather than in Ebay as I need to pay for Ebay even if I haven't sold anything yet. To my surprise today, someone bought 6 stainless steel mugs from my e-shop. I am so glad to it. I hope good business will go on:)

Hello dear youless. I am so glad to hear that you have done a good business today after almost a year. Congratulations, dear youless. I have never had any business experience on the net, but I am very interested to know more about how you have been doing your business on Taobao without having to pay for any service to the website if you would be happy to let me know more about it, your e-shop with the link included as well. If it is not that difficult to do online business, I would like to have my wife try online business to see how well she can manage it. I have always been regarding my loved wife Jack-of-all-trades and would be happy to have her try everything new and exciting and that brings us profit doing some very good business at home without having to leave the house for the business. lol. Thanks in advance for your further response, dear friend.

The service for Taobao is totally free of charge. It is not so complicated and you can learn it soon. Yeah, you can ask your wife to have a look at it. The sign up is easy. At first, you can put several products to sell. After that, just try to promote your e-shop. I think I'm just very lucky. Please remember to take good photos for your products, this is so important.

Thank you so much for the information. I was just reading the service and find that some of the items have fixed time to sell them like 23 hours, 18 hours etc. Why is it like that? Thank you for your further response, dear friend. I will be coming to read to read it tomorrow. Good night.

It seems your goods can be showed in your e-store for few weeks. After that, the goods will be in your warehouse of your e-store. All you have to do is put it to your e-store again. There is a button for you to manage your e-store. So usually I don't care how many hours left for my goods. I will sometimes check my warehouse. If there are goods there, then I put it to the e-store again.

Well, my friend, you are so wonderful! Congratulation! How did you achieve this? It is very challenging and interesting to have an e-shop. Hopping that the year of the rat would bring you much opportunity, success and fortune to your e-shop business.

Hello dear lkbooi. I have to agree that it is very exciting and challenging to do online business with an e-shop of one's own. I wish that I had such experience as well as I think that it is a very good way to make some more money at home with only a nice computer with the help of the Internet to sell products of different kinds that are easy to get sold. I also join you in wishing our youless to make more foutune since she has a very good start at the beginning of the new year, the prosperous year of the rat. Good luck to you, my dear youless and I am very happy to see you around in the same discussion that I have responded to under the name of youless, my good friend as well as you.

That's great! Good for you. I thought about selling stuff on Ebay but I'm not very good on the computer and my husband doesn't have time to show me how to do that sort of thing.

That is the great thing about an online shop... you can go for days and days without a sale and then wake up one day and find out you got a big sale. congrats. Zelo

Well good luck! And give yourself a pat on the back for selling those steel mugs, why the surprise? Surprise that someone bought them? Keep up the good work my friend and the money will quickly come rolling in.

Awesome I never heard of Taobao before. I hate e-bay. I don't shop there anymore. I wish there was a good alternative to it. Sounds like there could be a contender. I will be checking out the site. Congrats on the sale youless!

Taobao is a Chinese selling and buying website which is similar with Ebay. However, I think it's better than Ebay as the buyer and seller can communicate with each other before the business is settled. It has a software like MSN, so it's just so easy to keep in touch. I've bought a lot there and also hope to sell a lot, too:)
