    Even though I've had my Ebay account for over 13 years, I've only recently gotten into the whole "make money online" thing.


    Last month I started selling ebooks on Ebay for .99¢ a piece. I'm currently making about 5 sells a day on average. After PayPal and Ebay fees I'm left with a measly $2 or $3 in profit daily.


    I feel like I should be able to get a lot more out of this account, but I don't know what to sell, so I'm looking for ideas. Where do retailers get their items from? China? How do you get in contact with a legit Asian seller?


    Here's the stats on my Ebay account:
    Member since 1999
    350 Positive Feedbacks
    100% Positive Rating
    Can sell 275,000 items, or $2,983,000 worth of items per month.
    Premier Verified PayPal account


    I realize I'm asking for very generalized advice, but I'd greatly appreciate any helpful responses.

    I have a nice way for you to earn atleast £100 a day, selling my products. I do it myself but i have selling limits.

    What's up with all the PM/Email requests?

    I'm not selling stuff for any of you unless I know you're legit, but if you were legit you wouldn't need someone else to sell your stuff in the first place.

    I have a few ecommerce stores, I personally don't like selling on ebay myself cos you have to build up an account and they are super annoying with fees and disputes and that stuff.. if you wanna take care of all that, you are welcome to list my products and if you want to make big money, you can order wholesale from me and get crazy low prices.

    You need to find a niche that has a great profit margin, that is the key.
    finding a good supplier who always stocks product and dropships is hard to find but doable....

    electronics in general is cut throat online, but if you find a niche within that field and find a good supplier than you are golden. years ago I happen to stumble upon a couple products online and researched the wholesale cost and then found a couple suppliers that dropshipped and made a killing a few years back before getting into other projects offline...

    i would say sell your own stuff, there are 1000's out there, focus on a niche that interests you and check what other sellers have then look for your own niche therin, I know we always seem blind but my guess is it is staring you in the face

    I can't send or respond to PM's.

    If you're trying to scam me (as I suspect most of your are), it's not going to work.

    I'm willing to listen to serious business offers though.

    Reporting you have an account of such standing will attract a lot of flies to the jam pot.
    You need to find your own products to maximise or you are just making others money.
    If there products were so good they would be selling them selves .
    Ebay accounts are easy to aquire so low selling limits is no excuse .
    try alibaba or dhgate for starters.
    Or if you want a quick way to maximise sell the account, todays market its probably worth 12 to 15k

    Alright keep adding feedback to your account selling those eBooks. After that look in the wholesale section
    of the forum to find legit suppliers. One thing for certain is your account is golden for making money.

    What your selling limit?

    Dollar and item amount?

    If you got 50k limit I got a TDB file with everything done for you, Upload it using a turboLister and you will see $$$ next day. It is based on dropshiping from Amazon. to eBay


    I got about 500 items all researched and ready to go (MUST CHECK PRICES FIRST) I had VA go to sellers and see what item they sold most and if they got 1000 item listed I would pick best sellers and end up with 100-150 just BEST items to sell. PM me

    What kind of ebooks are you selling? I thought it was against the TOS to sell public domain ebooks on ebay. Are you selling PLR ebooks maybe?

    Just need to say on the listing that this is sold a CD and when costumer buys tell them they got an option to get a free copy by e-mail or pay for shipping. 95 percent they pick free e-mail copy.
