    Hey guys, I haven't posted in a very long time on here because i've been busy setting up other projects. I took a break from interacting much online and instead meditated on ideas how I can bank online and i've figured out so many ways that all work! I am now running multiple methods which after lots of trial and error I finally perfected each in making $$$ on autopilot. Anyways, you read the title.. one of my ideas which i finally got a chance in testing and I am going to tell you how I did it..

    I made a total of $136 super easy! I'm not sure if this idea has been done before but if it hasn't, i can tell you it works.. It involves being offline the ENTIRE time but after you can go home, sleep, wakeup, and you'll for sure make money. Don't let it scare you when i said offline, all i did was go to the mall, i took pics of a few items in "abrcrobmbie" store from the clearance section and listed them all on ebay right there in the store from my phone all with the option "buy it now" i went to the cafeteria to eat, then relaxed for a while, took a walk to spencer store and one item was sold, by the time i walked to the parking lot, another time was sold!

    Anyways, i went back inside, bought the 2 items that sold, and now i'm up at 5:30am waiting to drive back to the mall and pickup the other 7 items that i will be purchasing to ship.

    Note, it was an easy $136 i made, i spent so far a total of $90 and will spend another $$300+ in the next few hours, but i still made profit so it's all good!

    To break it down.

    You need a phone with internet and logged into to your ebay sellers account. Take pics of clearance items in stores that you think will sell. I personally know from experience that abercmibie stuff sells so thats why i tested that store. Anyways.. this might not seem "fun" for others to do but i was thinking maybe if i share it, someone can share ways to change it up a bit.

    if you think about it.. this can be a great hustle for anyone who is desperate for quick cash i know i could have done this back in 2001 when i was homeless (too bad internet signal was weak on phones back then)

    i'm sure this method can make more money with the right thinking..

    The problem is that you can't really scale this method, or make it viable anything else than day term (shorter than short term) They sell the stock, or that particular size, you go back, your stuffed. You have to cancel the transaction, and this affects your seller ratings. Good luck though.

    This looks like luck more than anything else.

    But good thinking out of the box.

    While I'm happy to hear you made some money, it's just not a method that's easy to scale. Unless you had a clothing wholesaler that you could purchase in bulk from and sell on eBay, I don't see this being a long term money maker.

    Wonderful method OP. Unbelievable method, never thought of this.

    This is the advantage of been active in forums like this, a combination of viable methods.

    believe me doing it is easy and simple, but the 'idea" i got i worked it all out in my head over hours and days of mediation. It might seem easy but its like keyword research and doing diligence, except i did it all over mediation which is hard to explain lol.. but the point is.. i planned it first and then took action i sort of knew i'd make profit depending on what items to select. I've observed over shopping at many stores and matching prices with my blackhat thinking in mind if that makes sense.

    You really have to play it like chess in your head, for example, the state you live in, there are people in other states that NEED things only your state might have. For example, this last summer if you lived in florida you could find cheap brand name clearance winter coats you can list on ebay 1 month later where people up north are prepping for the fall and winter season.

    Next up, Dollar General for me! I saw lots of stuff in there for $1 that are selling in huge quantity on ebay for more than 500% higher

    I've done similar with the dollar stores as the markup is stupid good on eBay - I did it differently as I made bundles of products so there was no competition for the EXACT products I was selling.

    Good on you for finding a method to make some cash and working it out as well as thinking of other opportunities on how to work that method.

    Buy and sell is really a great method if you know what items are in demand. Congrats on your earnings and keep it up!

    Good thinking!

    Just make sure to keep some profits for any possible refunds, or losses (i.e. customer wears it, then returns for refund).

    I'm sorry but how exactly is this "super easy" ? There are so many things that can go wrong.
    For once, as someone else mentioned, what are you going to do if by the time you sold something that item is out of stock? You're going to get bad reputation...
    Also, what do you do if you buy the item but your buyer changes his mind?
    Not to mention the fact that you have to know where to go and what to look after(know what sells well and what doesnt), do the shipping(which can take time, I did this many times), if the buyer doesnt buy the item, you end up wasting money on shipping.

    I appreciate the fact that you're keen to share your methods, but you can at least be honest and tell it how it is.

    All businesses are going to have things that can go wrong but this is really an easy method as I share here:

    And here:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-made-3-700-00-christmas-you-can-do-same.html

    This is actually getting very close to a perfect time to start selling on eBay if you are so inclined and the OP is sharing how he is sourcing products with little effort.

    The method itself is very good and out-of-the-box, but it is not really a method, you made this money just on pure coincidence and luck.

    At first, how often does it happen that you can find something in a store that is cheaper than on ebay, and SO cheap that you still make a profit AFTER adding ebay and paypal fees? If you see an item for $10 and on ebay it is $15 so you terribly go wrong if you assume you made now a profit of $5. You make only $1.89 if you list for $14.
    Next thing, you have to SHIP your product. So if you charge for shipping this is no good because 99% of sellers offer free shipping. So if you offer free shipping and include actual shipping fee in the sales price your are already higher than $15 and nobody will buy ....
    So this is far away from being "super easy".
    Also maybe you find something and list it. Buyers do not buy immediately. Do you really want to spend the whole day in the store?
    Also maybe 6 hours later you have a buyer, now if you go back to buy the item, it is already sold out. What now? Cancel the auction is the only way. The buyer is unhappy then and chances are high to get a negative or at least neutral feedback. Nobody gives positive feedback for not receiving his product.

    So the whole thing here is based on luck and pure coincidence more than on a business opportunity.

    This is not an easy method. I agree with what anatho said, OP was lucky.

    The title is very deceptive. You did NOT make 136 dollars in 5 minutes.

    You have to:
    -do market research
    -make a list of all shops in your area and what kind of discounts they offer
    -list all the items you want to sell
    -promote your items
    -if someone does decide to buy, you have to go back to the shop and buy the item, hoping its still there
    -do the shipping, filling info, calling courier and whatnot and hope your customer is serious about buying.

    Are you telling me you did all that in 5 minutes?

    Again, I have no problem with the method itself, I'm just asking OP to be honest instead of shoving buzzwords down people's throats.

    It's a decent method if your starting out but like others have said it can be risky especially in the early stages just because you may go back and your items could be gone, obviously when you have a low selling feedback score 1 or 2 bad feedbacks can kill your account.
    But once you get the hang of what sells well then you could stock up on the products and not have any out of stock issues.

    There are many people who make a living from price tracking software, they buy products when there low and sell when there high and they buy all there supplies from the high street.

    How is the title deceptive? Truth is truth. This method is EASY trust me but you do have to think outside the box like all hustles. This is not the stock market, lol man seriously all you have to realize is that BIG CORPORATIONS have the $$$ to stock up on QUALITY items for pennies on the dollar even beating the average wholesale buyers like you and i who try "THEY" make it hard for us to compete. I took advantage of knowing this... today i sold 3 laser pointers i got from dollar store for $1, i sold all 3 on 1 auction bundled for $11.99 with free shipping. So $3 investment made me $9 profit if you subtract the amount i will use to ship usps media mail.

    The entire EBAY part you mentioned takes no time at all for me to setup. I am a previous ebay seller so i am familiar with how to navigate around the ebay dashboard to quickly create listings. I have a template ready and as soon as i find the items, i take pics, upload it and list them. The trick for me is i find items I "KNOW" about and if i would buy it, someone else would..

    Here i posted an honest method. Your problem is you read it, and had NO CLUE it can be done. You did not even go outside and looked at ITEMS in any store and match prices.. Do that, and you will see the POTENTIAL.

    another reply about honestly lol Man sometimes i feel bad for people on BHW, not you, but alot of people on here.. I'll tell you why this method is SUPER EASY. But i won't talk about your reply, i will just say something so maybe any newbies out there will not bash methods but instead take action.

    Here's the thing, this is one of the easiest things one can do to make $$$. Do you want to know what is harder than doing this? Starting from scratch being completely lost where to start. How to even get a .com domain? What the hell is hosting? How do i change my nameservers?, how do i link my domaim to my hosting? wtf is ftp and how do i set it up? Installing a brand new wordpress, blogging, keyword research, etc...

    ^that is hard, but for MOST OF US on here, everything i mentioned above is SUPER EASY and we can all do it in under 5 minutes, i know I can. I have to if i will create 100 microniche sites right? But when you do your FIRST site it takes learning, and hands on experience, then you can throw up 100 more EASY.

    You see my friend, i shared a SUPER EASY EASY EASY METHOD anyone can do to make a $20 today self! This is 10000 times easier than learning how to own domain, get hosting, setup wordpress, etc as i mentioned above.

    My advice, nothing is hard, you just need BALLS.
