    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.

    Welcome to Black Hat World........................
    Home Page:

    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?

    tics. This is pretty scaleable, as there is always new product lines to get into.

    I've been making about $200 per month profit w/ 100% legit merchandise, but I'm considering dropshipping or reselling Fiverr gigs.

    Ebay fees and Paypal fees take a large chunk of out of you money especially if your margins are small
