    Hi everyone

    Does anyone still make a decent amount of money from Ebay nowadays? It used to be easy back in the good old days before the new boss banned ebooks. I know it's ok to sell them in classifieds now but is anyone having any luck with this?

    Thanks

    Slick

    1-9 for your Keyword goodluck
    I was making good money shipping CD's for my digital products, until a few months ago.

    I am not sure if it was the economy, or ebays new search system but the sales went away for me.

    I see you are from UK, that market was strong for me selling info products.

    Classifieds are not too good unless you make them featured. Otherwise you pay so much for the same results as an auction as most people seem to search time ending soonest. Therefore you just get your traffic in the last 2 days after waiting 1 month.

    For me. I stopped selling on ebay because I was getting to the point where my profits were eaten up by all the damn fees. By getting rid of the ability to sell electronic transferred stuff and only let you sell physical items. My sales hit the floor, broke through, and started soting my @$$ money. Screw Ebay someone else will come up with something better soon enough.
