Hey guys, This is my first post here since I just registered. I've been reading up on some threads under Ebay and Site Flipping. I've decided to take a shot at the Ebay business first since Site Flipping requires me to have some investment. Which I do not. Since I'm only 17, I don't have a credit card. However, I do have a paypal account that is verified and is linked to my chequing bank account. I do have some questions. To get into the Ebay scene, I just want to clarify. I post an ad for an item that I don't have, then when I receive the payment from a buyer, I use that to purchase from someone else that is selling the same product for a cheaper price, tell them to ship it to MY buyer and I profit from that. Correct? Is that really all there is to it? Also, would my age be a factor? I've had an ebay account since november of 2009 and I have a positive feedback of 100% from 6 purchases I've made. Also, I haven't had any troubles receiving payments in my paypal as I used to write articles for Triond. Made measly ~$0.50 a month. I'm really hoping this would be how I break into making money online. Also, I purchased an eBook from WSO for $33.00 after reading all the positive testimonials and the seller being punctual on replies, however, after reading it, I feel like it won't work anymore. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to disclose it, but the main idea was selling eBooks on Digital Point. I went to look at DP and I found there was way too many other eBooks and the recent posts are buyers complaining. I just really want to break even with this loss for now, but I eventually want to help my parents pay off some of their credit card debt. I'm also getting close to having to go to university so some added income on top of my part time job would be really helpful. Thanks guys!
