    I'm a former ebay seller. Like many the FVf and the fact that ebay will almost always side with the buyer, caused me to leave it. i was making about $5000 a month.

    Posts like this always baffle me. How will knowing what someone else makes, help you?

    Black hat, you can make $5,000k + what that comes a lot of hassle and headache. Of course you can make more, but your exposure and risk increases exponentially.

    Doing things Right you can make $15,000 + with that comes less hassle and headache, and more strategy and logistics. This is pretty scaleable, as there is always new product lines to get into.

    I make a lot of money on ebay, 100% legit.


    In regards to the FVF , you need to factor in that variable expense when sourcing products. My rule of thumb is simple, if my margins are so tight that I'm worried about paypal fees and ebay fees then it's not worth selling that item. There are plenty of items with healthy margins out there.

    A lot of times, people use these post to feel the waters..
    how much do you make with ebay?
    if most people say couple of grand... and OP is making $10,000 a week..

    then he needs to pull back on his method or risk getting busted.

    if people say $50k a month.... then he will feel better making 10k a week...

    so... like I said... people ask for a reason... and not just being nosy.

    makes sense...BH ebay is just too dangerous and you cannot scale it..so what's the point?

    Doing things Right you can make $15,000 + with that comes less hassle and headache, and more strategy and logis
    tics. This is pretty scaleable, as there is always new product lines to get into.

    Read my post in the ebay thread titled.. everything you need to know to go legit on ebay.

    That's pretty much my method.

    Im in the Home Goods business, and I do 500k a month on eBay with 60k gross profit.
    However with this type of volume there is considerable Overhead involved.
    Employees,S/W infrastructure.
    At the end of the Day my Company Nets about 25k a month ON eBay.
    I'm also on Buy, Amazon, and website.

    All legitimate 100% of the time.. When you are at this level everyone is watching.

    100% profit on each item sale, if a item costs me $30 it goes for $60 without questions asked.

    R.O.F.L. are you kidding me? Why not go and take your "case" to the police? :-) R.O.F.L. That's funny!

    I used to make about 700 - 1000 a week selling fakes, got sick of eBay dishing all my money back out to the buyers and them keeping my products though. Even if my products are fake, it does not give the buyer the right to keep them. That is just plain and simple theft.

    That's cool. That's what i am trying to build towards. Out of the $60k profit is that pure profit for you or do you then have overheads from that?

    Yes that is Gross Profit. I have a decent amount of overhead.
    Employees, S/W overhead.
    Usually net profit on 500k is 25-30k a month.
    (I have 2 partners as well so I'm not making anywhere near what I'd like t o make)

    Amazon def brings more sales, but they are more difficult to work with.
    You have to really be on your game to do well on Amazon.

    The only thing I thought was difficult was waiting 2 weeks for payment. With a Zebra printer and a stamps.com account I found it pretty easy. Then again, I wasn't using dropshippers. I had all my stock on hand.

    I've been trying to make some money on eBay, but with the competition it's very hard. I've been trying to dropship things, but then again, it's always easier said than done.

    That's because everyone and their brother are trying to do what you're doing. Unless you can find some golden item that millions of people haven't thought of yet, you're not going to be competitive. There are too many sellers with deep pockets who are buying the same things you are 10k at a time, so they're going to get a much better price.
