    Did you know you can make money buying from craigslist and reselling on ebay.

    Things you'll need to start:

    1.eBay account
    2.Paypal account
    3.craigslist account
    4.$200 / 300 to start up

    Now go on craigstlist and look for a cheap iPhone 4 or 4s take your time looking. People in craigslist sell stuff for cheap because they need the money and are desperate to get rid off stuff and you my friend can take advantage of this. Remember to do research between eBay and Craigslist compare prices and take action when you see a profitable opportunity. Trust me i sold plenty of apple products like this. I bought an iPhone 4 for 200 with a bad esn and sold for $275 thats a quick 50 60 dollars after fees and s&h. Not bad huh!

    Now a little trick to do your eBay research. When searching for items to look up the price the item is selling for simply click the advance search and check the completed listing option. The results will show you the price the item is selling for and when it sold, that way you have an idea if you can make a proffit or not.

    I hope this help, try this out guys if u have'nt yet and let me know how it goes. And if you need any extra help let me know. Cheers!

    Best of luck,

    Drkwrld ;)

    The completed listing is one of the most important steps, IMO.
    I have a friend that strictly resells on ebay, and that is one of his most essential tools.
    Real prices don't leave you wondering what your margin will be...

    I had an old thread about setting up the RSS feed to locate the good stuff quick. As you know this method has been around for a while and there are a lot of others in competition with you trying to find and buy the same apple stuff you are looking for. In a smaller town yeah it is easier but in bigger towns like the one i live in everyone is trying to buy low and resell high on ebay so you have to be quick on your toes if you wanna get the good stuff cheap.

    what always sells great on ebay and you can find for half the price if you look really well and jump on good deals is MacBooks, ipods, iphones, androids, any laptops with windows 7 and 8, apple anything really. they are the best ones because they sell quickly on ebay and you will find a lot of good deals in a bog city....see the rss setup below...



    As you guys know Craigslist, one of the most popular ads sites for local stuff, is great for finding pretty much anything you can think of cheap as hell, from rental stables to a new job at your favorite beach town. If you find yourself constantly checking Craigslist for the same thing, say, a green couch or like you mentioned an iphone 4s etc, then you've probably wondered how you can speed that process up. Simple: RSS feeds.

    Here's how you would set up a Craigslist RSS feed. Navigate to what you've been looking for, for example, apartments in San Francisco. You probably don't want ALL the listings for ALL the apartments, so use the search field at the top to narrow your search:

    Once you have your search parameters set, scroll all the way to the bottom of the page. You'll see a link for RSS there.


    Click on that link, and you'll be asked which RSS reader you'd like to have the search results for your new search put into.


    Now, instead of checking Craigslist every day and having to put your search criteria in over and over, you've got a personalized search coming directly to you.


    Note: If you have a Droid or an iPhone, you can take advantage of the fantastically useful applications made to track Craigslist RSS feeds. For instance, on my Droid, I downloaded an application named CraigsNotifica that tracks as many Craigslist feeds as I can possibly program in there, any place in the world, and notifies me within minutes when a new post shows up - super useful.
