    Just wondering. I set up an ebay auction for an ebook I wrote a while ago on how to make money online. Any success stories or are ebooks a flop?

    You have to physically ship e-books nowadays (CD format or something) so if you have a cheap way to do that en masse then sure. Otherwise, you're SOL.

    I have sold a few ebooks on ebay without shipping anything, all you do is offer to ship(for a extra fee), but you don't HAVE to.

    Not a flop at all, but ebay bites. You'll make more $$ at WF or DP but be aware that your pdf will be copied and shared fairly quickly (but you'll still make $$).

    One Big $$$ way is to put aff links in the ebook, and try to get people to pass it around

    I think if ebay finds out you're account will be zapped. If you're just gonna do a few here and there you'll probably fly under the radar though.

    i used to sell alot of ebooks on ebay & make a fair amount of money from them but even with putting them on disk with all the ppl that "didnt recieve it"
    & ebay ended listing for copyright issues,it became more trouble than it was worth.even if you can prove where your information has came from if a jealous ebayer reports a problem your account is suspended until you have sent them all the information they require,a very long & boring process.its quite easy to make small money from ebay selling real products if you have enough listings.when i first started i had no money to risk so i would go to the cash & carry take pics of there stock with my camera phone, list the items then if 1 sold i would go & buy 2 lol
