Getting Tired Of Making Ways To Make Money

Oh dear me sorry if you have to read this sort of a rant from me but I feel tired of finding out ways to make money. I am doing okay with my freelance job except that it has a limit every month so I need to find another one or two especially that the buck is getting tighter at the home front right now. I was enjoying ptc for the first time with smileyclicks until it vanished quickly without a word and with my invested money on it. Had I known sooner I would have cashed out early. Now I have this invitation to bid on a project but I am not sure how it works. They need people to post stuff on ebay using the applicant's personal ebay account and they get 10 to 15% commission. While all this sounds great I am not so sure about the legitimacy of this kind of transaction. Let's say it's clasified as dropshipping. My concern is yes I get my commission before I send them the amount in paypal. However what happens after I sent them the amount? How sure would I be that they would send the item to the customer? Has anyone ever tried this? It's hard enough finding ways to make money but it's harder when you get scammed. Are there any other legitimate sites out there except for free;ancer,ebay,odesk,guru and elance.

Just stick to a few things and make sure you work efficiently applying Search Engine Optimization where necessary. This will boost your earnings and reduces you feeling like ranting.

I've looked into dropshipping, but there are so many scams out there from fake sites to directories that claim to have only legit dropshipping sites. I have found a few legit dropshippers but it was mostly through trial and error. We would buy something from the site pretending it was going to a customer and we would check the packaging was as they said it would be and it arrived within the time limit etc. Also if you use paypal you can always open disputes regarding the item. I know what you mean about having to look for more online work on such a frequent basis. It's great when you have residual income but when you have to go out looking for assignments etc it can really get you down. I have a blog that I'm building up at the moment regarding legit online jobs. It is a work in progress but all the sites on there are ones that I have tried and tested. If you would like the link, just PM me.

I've been invited to submit a proposal for this kind of work but I don't think I would trust it. First thing is, They may well be genuine but sometimes dropshippers take ages to send stuff out. And that can reflect in your feedback. Then there is always the chance they aren't genuine or some items get sent out and others don't. All of that will affect your feedback. If a buyer has a problem they will come to you. I wouldn't sell anything that I didn't already have in front of me.

yeah, I am looking for freelance sites as well. I've found a website called Fiverr.com which is a sort of freelance but with some limitations. But you can try it since I've made some money with them easily. Also you can go to my profile and check my blog for more website i am using to make money online.

It must have been hard for you to do stuffs that are just going to get wasted. I haven't known any site that offer the services and caters the need that you want. However the only thing that I can advise right now is to get a stable day job and do these online jobs as a sideline or an augment for your financial need.
