    I always heard people talking about how eBay is one of the top ways to earn money without having to do much after setting up. I never found someone to show or teach me what needed to be done but I always saw how people connected their eBay store to facebook or other ecommerce sites or dropshippers and whatnot and then just sat back and enjoyed the money coming in. How do I go about setting something up for myself in a niche with minor competition?

    Trial and error. You can't learn to swim until you get your feet wet. With ebay, you have to sell a tangible item, which means you have to have a connection to get those items for cheap to turn a profit. Since selling on ebay isn't a local sale, like selling on CL, no one in their right mind is going to give you any info about specifics. The best advice I can give is start out and find a great wholesaler or drop-shipper, which is the hard part and usually where people fail. You can do good, if you have a million $$ or so to start because you can go direct to companies like Sony, Microsoft or what ever big company that supplies your niche and place an order. They may direct you to one of their main distributors but it's all the same. Good luck...

    I'm planning on giving live webinars to teach people how to make money on eBay. If you want to learn how to start making money through the site, this would probably be one of the easiest ways to get started.

    There is no easy money on eBay. If there is for real, people will keep it for them self. If your really want to make good money on eBay your have to work hard at first.

    eBay is definitely a good way to make money. A lot of less sudden risk factors unlike nontangible IM which could go down the drain overnight.

    Product research is very important. Without knowing what could potentially sell
    and then doing the research on you're cost/profit margin is critical. This is the first place to start.
    After that all you need to do is sit around and think of ways to improve you're listing and drive traffic.
