    I have experience with eBay, after final fee and PayPal fee, only few bucks made.

    I want to try Amazon FBA, but after a lot of research and calculation. Very very low profit.

    Both site with a problem, price competition.

    Anyone has make money (after paid your labor ) still making 15% profit or above? not include cheating or fake products.

    Thanks

    Easiest way is to source real products and resell. That can profit to over 100% at times!

    Start doing private labeling. It will earn you more profit.

    For eBay, buy physical products that have high reselling profit margins and then sell them on eBay. I agree with @50cent. A good way to find products/ideas is to check out the sold listings and their quantity.

    I make on average £600 to £1000 a month profit on eBay. It can be done by finding profitable items.

    No, I order stuff to mine using Prime and then ship. I only have like 240 listings on average at a time. The only thing stopping me making more is a lack of space

    Are you sending traffic to eBay listings?

    No, everything is natural. I always make sure I research on eBay to see what sells first though.

    Although my shop does not revolve around this, you can pick up the odd glitch on Facebook groups which can get you a good profit. For example, last year I picked up 8 x water filtration systems that retailed at £400 each for £4 per unit. Deals that big are rare though.

    True. Only low net profits if you're selling the most common items
    find a niche, and do some research (other pay for VAs to do the research of profitable items)

    I bundle products together to raise my margin. Also makes your product stand out too. I always ALWAYS use original photography as well. You mentioned space is a concern. My advice there is to find actual suppliers. Since you're established as an online retailer, you can certainly start calling distributors and get a much lower price than Amazon. Many distributors do ship as well, via a white label, so the storage issue is non-existant. Look up the corporate websites of the brands you currently sell. Usually, there is a list of distributors (or a where to buy) link that'll give you hints who to call. Another perk of dealing with distributors is the 'authorized reseller' status. A lot of products on Ebay get takedown notices for using trademarked information in the listings (VERO violations). If you're authorized to list, however, you can sell provided you follow the rules (MAP pricing, etc). There are a lot of people that still break the rules, but being legit here gives a bit of a competitive edge unless the MAP pricing is too high since the competition is somewhat controlled.

    From 2012-2015 I was making about an additional 1000-2000 a month buying items on goodwills auction site/ garage sales. It was more out of a need to cover all my bills. I started off selling everything I could get my hands on but I also ended up with a lot of items I could not sale. By the end I was selling mostly antiques I could fit in flat rate boxes and cell phones I was buying off Craigslist. Then I got a job that paid significantly more and I didn’t focus as much on eBay. My tip is this. Combine your shipping into cost and offer free shipping and reply immediately to messages.

    You can earn decently on the branded products arbitrary retails differences. If you want to earn big go for private labeling, this is time consuming and risky but your research on the right product is the key

    Look for products on Amazon with no listing (anymore) that used to sell, you will be the only one to offer it. Often they receive a lot of organic trafic.

    Source: someone did this with my Amazon account back in the days (it was a JV) and made more than $1000 sales per day

    you can make money via offerering gpl digital goods via download or disc

    but in the advert you say, the cash is for finding such item and providing it via link or disc all apps are gpl.

    look at others soon get the drift , and no what selling .

    just make the advert pop ,with the item/product features , always use emoji ppl love them on adverts .

    good luck.
