    I have been trying with ebay for a while. I am looking for a way to make money from home and take care of these crazy ass bills lol. I am not looking for a spoon fed method but some help or maybe a mentor that actually knows what they are doing. I have tried dropshipping on ebay and haven't made a good dollar yet. I am stuck and frustrated. I am using dropshippers because I don't know what to buy in wholesale and if I do somehow find the money to buy the items in wholesale. I am afraid I will make a huge mistake and lose little bit of investment money i have left. I can use someones help and if I make money ( you know run a successful business) I will def pay you for your help. I am confused and stuck here. I heard dropshippers arent a good use for ebay. But then again, you don't want to lose yourself in having stock that wont or cant sell. I can really use someone's help. Especially a fellow BHW member.

    Thank You,

    The one thing I always wanted to sell is Men's clothing and fragrances. I always wanted to open a compnay similar to Jack threads but I guess like everyone else, I have to start from the bottom first.

    Save yourself the hassle and start 1 CPA campaign with 1 source of traffic and 1 product that's already converting on a network. Target deep down and keep testing until you break even...then test some more. Once it makes some sort of small regular profit then scale it up with similar campaigns and more traffic.

    That's just me though, I personally don't like dealing with physical products or customers. I used to sell football jerseys on ebay, but I was able to get them very cheap and even then it just wasn't worth the hassle.

    More power to you though if you're able to crack it or find someone who will "mentor" you.

    Stay away from ebay they are thief. U wont make money unless u buy huge wholesale lots. Ebay fees are up in the sky.

    Paypal-ebay = Legal Robbery lol.

    Make ur own site n hit the garage sales for valuable items. Or sell books on amazon just go to ur local salvation army n get some good titgles books to sell.

    Go on craigslist and buy dvd collections n sell on amazon.

    Ebay n paypal biggest mo fos :thumbdown:

    Yea but Ebay isn't the only crook. AMAZON IS WORST! Those guys shut down my account for no legitimate reason and took $400 dollars that took me forever to make. Thats why im back with ebay. I am just looking for a good wholesaler of quality men and women clothing. (Men clothing & accessories preferably). So I can sell on their or at least my own store front. But I cant seem to find any good dropshippers because either their prices are too high or their shipping is high. It feels like a dead end with these dropshippers. The one thing I hate is when a dropshipper sells their products on ebay which leaves you as no competition.

    Sign up with Terapeak. This is a great tool for researching what to sell on ebay. Find a good product with at least a 70% sell through rate, find a supplier, www.dhgate.com or something similar, then list and flip for profit. List on a Thursday and always list for 10days, that way your item will be displayed over 2 weekends.

    Mens clothing is a hard niche to crack, and the complaints from customers is quite high. You can get accused of all sorts of things, i.e fake goodies. You can still go after it here is a great site I have used, but it is for wholesale, the prices are not to steep so it can be a good starting point. www.efashionwholesale.com. Also check out www.liquidation.com, it is an auction based site but I have gotten some good bargains from there, in the mens clothing area.

    But again I would look at what is hot and try to get in on the action.

    RESEARCH, and don't give up.

    Hello folks
    This is my first post and my first time selling on ebay.Yeah, give me a cookie.lol
    Well for years I heard about the fees on e.They people talk about the fees I thought it would be like 60%.But its not as bad as people were making it out to be.

    Now could somebody explain is this just because I'm a beginner that I dont see the real fees or I'm I missing something?

    The fees suck, but the exposure is great. The fees are all explained on their site read over it - http://pages.ebay.com.au/help/sell/fees.html (thats eBay.au). You got your insertion fee + 7.90% for a final evaluation fee + PayPal's fee (if you use PayPal), it all adds up in the end. When you take the fees into account over a lot of sales it turns out to be a lot of cash that goes into their pockets and not yours.

    I don't think you are missing anything its just a bitch to pay fees. I feel the exposure is great and the fees can be worth it (fuck that, fees suck), use the traffic from eBay and drive it to your own website with up-sells.

    Just be cautious with eBay try not to depend on it to much, because there are so many horror stories of accounts getting banned, even power sellers, and same goes for Paypal.

    Thanks Petrovski.I've read the forums in ebay and its funny to see the post there.

    It could almost be likened to a group of townspeople gathered up to burn down the mayors house for bad community service.

    Never did a website in my life.Hell,I barely hooked up my myspace back in those years.
    But ,I guess its time to spring out and try new things.Already started the yr with a body detox.Money is humble at the moment...
    Are website's still under 7$ now days(not blogtalk)
