What can I sell online for $1?

I'm thinking about earning part time income online when this question suddenly popped up. Okay, I have my Alertpay and Liberty Reserve accounts ready. They're just there sitting idly for the past 4 months just in case I use them. I could easily put up a website asking for donations or payment. If the product is cheap and good, then big money might come. The USA alone has more than 280 million population. Add the rest of the world and there is really a market for any new online entrepreneur out there. I have the basic set up to earn online. But there is a problem. What can I sell online for $1.00 each? I'm a data encoder, not a computer wizard. I'm just your average office guy with a 9 to 5 job. And I have no files or videos to sell. Still there might be a great idea out there somewhere. Please share your thoughts. Maybe we could stumble upon something good. Have a nice day everyone :)

I wish I had a better idea, but you might consider e-publishing short stories and selling them for a buck. If you have the creative drive to do it, then you might be able to make a decent income. I know of one author that completely self-publishes her work (anything from short stories to full-length novels). She tries to publishe something new every month to keep her customers coming back. She made something like 2 million dollars last year ... obviously, this is a rare example. But if you had enough interest you could probably supplement or maybe even replace your current income. This is what I'm planning on doing, I just don't have enough content yet to feel comfortable with putting up a new website and such. Another thing you might think about is small products, little nick-knacks and such. You can usually find these in huge lots on Ebay and then resell them, of course you'd have to deal with shipping and stuff like that, which is a real pain sometimes. Don't know if this helps any, but I hope it at least gives you some ideas.

try selling pictures or stories you may not get 1 dollar immediately but as time goes by, it'll earn you more than a dollar passive income

Online money making is not always easy but if you have a very well planned project or proposal then it will surely work and I agree with you,with the people using the internet online is countless so the opportunity is very big to earn money.All we need is a very specific plan step by step on how to do it.I do have few knowledge in computer since it's 4 years now that I am earning online.If you want to put up a website for landing page or something like that,the first thing you need to list down in your paper is the domain name you want.Now in the domain name,you need to look for a domain name that's something short but unique as well people can easily remember.Now if you have your domain name,what you need is hosting for it.there are a lot of website makers.You can get domain name in Godaddy.com and you can also check Wix.com for flash website for example if your more focus on shopping site,E-commerce site sort of things.Now after setting up the website,you need to apply SEO on that so you need to looks for people who is best in SEO.If you want something easy but you need to invest more,you can always hire website makers in Odesk,freelancer.com and so on.There's a lot of things you can sell for one dollar,Either you focus on ACEO paintings,you can check about it,you can also the E-book that's more than a dollar.of course you need to set up some promotional videos to promote your product,now you can hire people to make promotional videos for you on Fiverr.com its just for five bucks,you can even hire SEO there and so on.Based of what's trending now,selling Tutorial E-book is really a hotcake,so you better check it as well.I hope this helps.I'm almost planning to make my own website for my service.

Hate to say it, but if I had a killer idea... I'd sell it myself.
