    I've been a seller on Ebay since 2002. I've also written tools for people in the API that do things like scrape&cache and snipe and graph. I've made 280,000.00+ just off sales since starting and basically did it being lazy and selling computer parts I could break 100% profit on. Ask me stuff. I probably know it.

    So you made less than $22000 per year?

    How much more money do you think you would have made if you you hadn't been lazy?

    How much did you invest totally?
    How many hours you work per week?
    Did you ship items yourself?
    How many people said they didnt get the item?
    Were you ever at a loss?

    22k a year? May as well go work in a call centre or flip some burgers. The pay wouldn't be far off that in those jobs.

    Actually in my country you could live really good with that sort of money. That amount is a dream to majority of population. Dream that will never come true. Anyway, OP is probably from North America or Western Europe so yeah :)

    I appreciate the comment, but our industry is supposed to smash that poverty divide - especially with the age of the Internet these barriers between what people can earn should be reducing, so if you are making a career online you can earn the same regardless of where you are located.

    Anyway, yea op is probably from west anyway.

    I know, I wanted to say that if he was here he would be a baller (for local standards) and his earnings would be good enough to open AMA on some local (random)site, not BHW

    @OP

    All jokes set aside + assuming your account is still in good standing, you probably have very high selling limits and plenty of feedback: Sets you up pretty nicely to make a lot of money should you choose to
