You Can ABSOLUTELY Earning a Living with Ebay! (Part II)
May 10, 2019
Here are the ways to getting started and earning a living on eBay.
Get Familiar with eBay
If you’ve never bought or sold on eBay before, now is the time to get started. Taking a test drive on eBay won’t only help you become familiar with the system but also help you determine if it’s something you want to turn into a home-based business.
- Sign up for a free account. If you know you want to create a business, use the eBay business account sign-up. If you’re not sure if you want to devoted time to a business and want to test drive eBay instead, use the regular eBay registration.
Sign up for PayPal which will make it simpler for buyers to pay you fast when the item sells.
It’s faster and safer than asking for checks. And since eBay owns PayPal, they’re connected so that you can send a PayPal invoice via eBay to your buyer.
- Buy something. The best way to get a feel for eBay selling is to perform a transaction as a buyer first. Pay attention to the listings that entice you, such as the price, photo, and headline. Many are run as auctions. You need to bid by specifying a price you want to pay. You can set a max price and eBay will submit your bids by increments for you until you get to the max price. Some sales are fixed prices, where buyers can buy now. These don’t necessitate bidding and the item can be bought ASAP as opposed to waiting until the auction is over.
3. Sell a few items. Before you begin an eBay business, test out eBay by selling a few items. This will give you an idea of how the platform works, time to gage your offers, and start to develop a system of listing, packaging, and shipping.
