    Hi guys,

    was wondering what you think about buying from ebay/amazon and selling through ppc? This is assuming I can get cheap clicks which I think I can. Im thinking it might be easier then to just list items on ebay or amazon.

    Thanks in advance

    Well, the thing is that when people buy things, they like to buy it via trusted sites. like ebay, amazon. That give them a feeling that they are safer(which they ofcourse are). So, even if you are there for people to see you, most of them will click and might even read and than go to amazon/ebay/google in search of something more trustworthy. And even if they were to buy your item, they might want some other size/colour or item that you dont have etc, etc. So, I could write 300 words article why this is not a good idea, but I dont have time.

    I just tell you that ebay and amazon are that successful platforms for a reason. They have BIIIG base of buyers and you need no ads(you only pay fees) So, I suggest you to hop on that train. They both have affiliate programs(eBay, Amazon), so you just need to drive buyers. No trust issues/hassle with building eCommerce site, ordering at amazon/ebay what people ordered at you and potential chargebacks if you do it too late. Or you can dropship/buy 1000things and resell to buyers on eBay/Amazon.

    Good luck with whatever you will do!

    Polynom right.. Before i made ecommerce and got traffic from fb ads.. Spent $300 on fb ads about 5 days.. No sale at all.. I bet they will never buy because they don't trust my site. :banghead:

    Thanks for the reply guys. I understand what u guys mean. I thought cuz I would have a PayPal button that it would look somewhat trust worth.

    In that case I might think of using eBay/amazon and trying to monetize ppc with something else. Maybe CPA.
