Does anyone make a living doing things like Ebay?

My MIL made some money doing Ebay. She made enough to take herself and 3 sons on a cruise. I am sure she had to dig into her own funds since they built up such a high bar tab! Anyways, a cruise trip for 4 must have cost a lot so she must have done really well. She still had her real job, but do you think folks can give up their jobs and just concentrate on Ebay (or any auction sites)? It just seems so unpredictable.

There are several auctions sites and sites to sell products on. I think if you have the time to concentrate on doing it, you can certainly make enough money to supplement an income. I sell jewelry on a site that specializes in handmade items. I still believe Ebay gets much more traffic than all the other sites and if I can find a little extra time, I'm considering selling again on Ebay. Take the time to research the items you want to sell. Are they getting lots of bids? What ending days do they sell best? I sent you a friend request... if you accept it I'll send you a message with a couple other helpful ways to make money with Ebay.

You are probably right in the fact that it seems unpredictable but what business is not? I think that if a person did enough research and found the right items to sell they could make really good money. I usually only sell on ebay for the extra money or just to get rid of stuff laying around the house but at Christmas time I will do a lot of extra selling and do well. I can see that people would be able to make a good living if they had the right items to sell to the consumers.

I sell full time on auction sites, not just Ebay and live of it.I think it depends greatly on what kind of "Lifestyle you want", How much you need to live.A lot of people out here are very mad about the changes to Ebay and heaps are leaving and joining other sites.
