Opening a business on ebay

January 10, 2012 11:13pm CST
I have always wanted to open my own business on ebay, but I can never find something that I could sell that I can make a living out of. I do my christmas cleaning using ebay, selling my kids old toys that they no longer want, and make some money to buy what they want. I just need ideas on things that could sell well on ebay, or anyone who has experience doing this.

It is always good to do what you enjoy, I wish you luck. I have not done Ebay myself but I think others things that can sell well at Ebay are jewellery and other accessories.

I've collected coins and baseball cards over the years. Now I'm selling some of those off to make ends meet. If you have a hobby where you know what to buy and sell, it could work. Since EBay gives you 50 free auctions with no listing fees each month, it's easy to experiment with different things.
