    Depends on the items. If they are authentic then you'll be earning decent amount of money, if not then you might end up getting a negative which will ultimately lead to a ban. Other than eBay you can sell on Amazon, gumtree, craiglist and there are some more websites.

    Earning on eBay depends on several factors, like shipment cost from your location, eBay fees, PayPal fees and mainly your item cost. If the gap between selling price and item cost is wide. Then there is a good chance of earning decent amount of money from eBay. There are many people who sell full-time at eBay.

    Make sure you do your reasearch on products first. Do not buy a bunch of hats and toys and expect to make a killing. The last thing you want is dead stock. You want stuff out the door as quickly as possible. You do not want to have to wait a week for a hat to sell. My net income on ebay varies from 3-4 k a month as of late and has been as high as 9k but that has come with tons of research and hours of finding suppliers I could trust. Finding good deals on the net never hurt either.

    Test some niches first and see what works for you. Try not to invest too much money into one specific product. Me personally, I diversify my listings so I usually wont have more than 10 available of one item. More like 2-3 but checking completed listings on your niche is a good way to start your research. What do people want lately? What will they run out of and need more eventually?

    You can sell on other venues as I have tried a bunch but you won't get the turnover you would get here unfortunately. It is what it is

    I have best prices directly from China,not retailer or so...
    That is what gives me good potential to earn.
    And I can source almost all,plus all these goods are already bought by my friend,and he wants to help me,so I thought I can sell it on eBay
