    Hello everyone!

    I've away from 'making money online' for sometime and I've been trying new ways to make some money (around 100$) and I want to try eBay.

    Can you guys tell if that's still possible?
    If yes, can you give me some tips / answer some questions?

    If you have 10mins I would like to ask you some questions, I appreciate in advance!

    Yes it is possible.

    Take a look in the section to the left named "Making Money" and you'll get more than 10 minutes of info that could help you out.

    You work with eBay everyday? Can you tell me your Skype so we can talk better?

    In a day? Wow, that would be nice, but I guess I need to work to get that in a day.
    Do you personally work with eBay?

    I do work with eBay; it is not a primary source of income but your 100.00 a month goal should be easy to reach if you follow some of the threads in the money making section.

    Did you read some of those threads?

    I've seen a lot of threads so far with journeys around 100$ a day, so I don't think 100$ a month should be very hard if you are willing to put some effort into it. If it was very easy, everyone would do it, right? ^^.

    You can try promoting products on Ebay using a ref link and earn money without actually selling a product yourself (Join the Ebay affiliate program).

    In the money making section you will find a lot of useful tips on how to actually use these ref links in ways that you can make some money from them :).

    The fees are damn too high on eBay, if you want to succeed you need to have a good network of sourcing for your items at low cost.

    There are lots of tutorials online that you can lay your hands on in a jiffy.

    Very doable, can make much more than $100/mo find what sells, research supplier and figure out margins that work

    Definitely still doable. I was doing $500 - $1000 a month (in its prime days) and only took 2 months or so to get to that stage.
    Like what others have said, the fees are damn high so you have to keep your costs to the minimal from stock to shipping.
    Most importantly though - DO YOUR RESEARCH AND FIND OUT WHAT SELLS. What are the items people are looking for but NOBODY is selling? (Yes, this happens a lot more than you think. There are actually items that people are constantly looking for out there without a single seller on eBay).

    Mix them together, and add awesome customer service, $100 per month should be easy. :)

    Yea, it comes down to what you sell, and how you promote. A little hard if you have a 0 feedback account, but even if you have a low 3 digit account, you should be aiming for $100/week profit. Let me know what you want to sell, I can generate some simple reports for you free from my Terapeak account. US and AU eBay only though, can't help if your Canadian. Just PM me if I don't answer. I don't come to these forums everyday

    Fee are about 20% so just factor that into your costs. $100 is easy to make. I grossed $3800 yesterday in 10 minutes and went home haha

    If your just starting, fees are around the 15% mark (eg. $99 buy it now listing).
    This taking into account:
    - Listing fee
    - Final value fee
    - Paypal Tax

    If you sell a lot and subscribe to eBay stores, you will have some free listings. If you can make it a little higher, merchant rates for PayPal drop as well.

    Just find some scammers that sell crappy digital goods for 10$, buy one of them and try to resell it 10 times :)

    100 a month? It is easy to make 100+ a day of you have the right product. Sure some periods are slow but around holiday time you can make enough to average more then 100 if you dont even sell the rest of the year.
