    Hey, My name is Donovan and I had just created an account for ebay. I have used it in the past quite a few times to sell things but not really get into business. This account I have just made has selling limits of 100 items and $5,000. These first 2-3 months I just want to use some methods to get started up and making $50-$100 a day. I am looking for some help to get started and making me money. I was thinking about maybe selling ebooks or something with full profit.. Anyone have any ideas or ways to help thank you :)

    stay away from ebooks...
    start small and don't rush..
    buy terapeak and see whats popular in your market..
    watch other sellers and copy what they do, do it better..
    dont hurry, take your time and it will happen

    Start off slowly and check out thrift stores, yard sales, closeouts and you can even buy things off eBay to resell back on eBay. Look for items that have crappy auctions (bad pictures, descriptions and etc).

    Hello,
    i've made a post yesterday here in this section but mods deleted it, maybe you've read this or not.
    I'm starting an ebay selling network.

    Here's how it will works.
    I'm looking for ebay sellers, with ebay and paypal account in good standings and some experience in selling online. At this first period, i'm looking at max 10 sellers worldwide. US, CAD, EU, AU sellers preferred.
    I'm opening right now a skype chatroom. I will explain my business, I will give you all my selling material, I'll guide you in starting your own ebay store and sell my software!
    We will create a working group, and collaborate together to maximize profits.
    Each time you make a sale, you collect the payment with paypal and then buy the software from me at a fraction of the selling price. I'll send the software directly to customer and make all the assistance and customer-care. Please note that the software itself is quite complicated, but you don't need any knowledge about it because i'll care about everything, and i'll be available 24/7/365 to support you on skype chatroom!

    To join the selling network, you must meet these requirements:

    1. paypal and ebay accounts verified and in good standings is a MUST. At least 100 feedbacks, 100% positive, 1year active.
    2. some selling and marketing experience is preferred. You don't need to be an expert, if you read this forum your level should be ok...
    3. commitment to serious work and honest, long-term relationship

    This is my promise:

    1. You can really make anything between $20 and $200 daily. I can do this, and so will you.
    2. You will get from 50% to 90% of sale, on more that 100 items and many high-priced product, even 400$/each.
    3. 100% eBay ToS safe business. no problems and long-term selling.
    4. I will give you EVERYTHING you need to sell: auctions templates, support, my knowledge, marketing material!
    5. I will push this business high: new website, new marketing campaigns, new products!
    6. It's all FREEEEE. Yes, i'll never charge you for nothing. Never.
    7. In the end, I'm offering the opportunity for you to copy my profitable online business for free....... I must be crazy ......
    IF YOU MEET THE REQUIREMENTS
    AND WANT TO START WORK TOGETHER,
    JOIN US ON SKYPE CHATROOM:
    "MQLXXX"

    Dude I saw the same post and told you this should go into the JV section. All mods have to approve a JV before it goes live to prevent scammers. Your post has been reported to a mod.

    Knock at people's door and ask them if they have any stuff they dont want. This worked for me. I got a bunch of free stuff that I sold and 100 percent profit lol. Get a big truck, and literally knock on everyone's door. This will take some confidence, cold approaching people is "Scary" but after like 10 times its like whatever. Go for small things.
    And if they want money for it just offer anything. Usually they just want to get a buck or two out of it.

    e-books is crap ,you account may get eventually banned , find local recycle centers ,and check what they have ,lot of times they have no idea what is worse . I start my ebay business this way few years back .it could be anything ,toys ,computer parts . Also check you local CL listings ,free section .And make sure you don't hide details from buyer ,make lot of photos too .
