Do you think working on ebay is risky or do you believe that one should try at least once to start a business on ebay?

As long as you follow the rules and really read the descriptions and then only pay through PayPal then you should have a pretty good time of it. Not sure I would call it a business although some seem to do wonderfully. It does take time and if you can treat it like work then I think you can make a go of it. I have a store and need to put more things into it. I like it and have not had a problem yet. Good luck to you.

before you should start a full time business on ebay you must do a research first.you must know what things are on popular demand in ebay right now.but mostly are consumer electronics.there are a lot of sellers already selling these things in ebay.so you must make sure you can compete with them.you must find good product supply company to you and with low prices which you can make some profit.you must compare other seller's price as well.if you price are low many customers will attracted to buy from you.besides that you must give good customer service like respond to buyer's questions promptly and clearly.always be honest.when you first started i bet you will meet a lot of scammers and joybidders.so in order of preventing you from being cheated you must first start reading topics in ebay forum.you can get a lot of information from there.you do not have to open store on ebay first.try selling a few items to get some positive feedbacks first.then only more buyers will trust you.everything have their risk the first time you wanna start.
