Hey guys, Well first off I'll start by telling a little bit about myself. I'm an Australian who is currently overseas in Mexico for a bit of an extended holiday. Since I have plenty of time on my hands and my laptop, I decided I wanted to start a few money making ideas online. I earn fairly good money in Australia doing my day job but online earnings is something I'd like to pursue even when I get home, even if it's a side thing. I'd like to use a combination of things like dropshipping services, affiliate and micro-niche blogging type sites. I don't really have a goal, just a steady income of profit would be nice. So far I'm making a few dollars most days just dropshipping random things from China using Australian eBay. I want to get into the niche of selling loose leaf tea to Australia but I want my tea shipped from within Australia. So I contacted a bunch of Australian wholesalers and sorted out a deal with two of them that would dropship for me. So I now have a product to sell. I have an online eCommerce store using wordproess. I have a hosting package for a gaming blog I do in my spare time, so all I needed to do was buy a domain, which I did. I'm going to start my journey fresh in this thread and update with earnings when they come in. But to start out with I'm feeling a bit down on the whole eCommerce idea and the amount of time it's taking me. Here's a small table I did to figure out what I really want to invest my time when it comes to selling my product. eBay Advantages: Instant huge customer base Good feedback score on a good account with eBay store Making money already Very low time investment No SEO or other things I need to outsource Disadvantages: eBay seller fees Selling limit of 150 items PayPal holds my payments for a period of time for each sale. eCommerce Advantages: My own website under my control - I'm interested in webdesign A Brand to build No PayPal holdings Already own a domain + hosting Can use my blog writing skills to push traffic Disadvantages: No customer base Need to invest in SEO services - I don't have a huge budget Huge time investment - seems I'm constantly thinking about this Would need to employ help for web design, as I'm never happy with my own work. I've also thought about transferring to a Shopify store. But I'd then have to pay $30 a month, which without customers is a waste. Well that's it for now, advice is very welcome!
