    I do ok with selling desktops, laptops, tablets. Just started doing eBay again and in my first and second month I made $750 profit each month. Not much but only doing it part time.

    Good job, that's some good extra income every month. Good profit items are always high risk items but you should stay away from those. They will mostly give you headaches and a hassle with ebay. I recommend you do your research and look for non branded items that will will make you some extra income, good source for this is dhgate, alibaba or aliexpress. Best of luck to you

    I used to purchase vase's from our local dollar store and resell them for 45$ a piece. I only stopped because the dollar stores stopped selling them. Also, I used to buy clocks from walmart (the 5 dollar ones) with the simple white insert. Would take them apart and have my friend draw super hero characters (Spiderman,batman etc) and then sell those for 60$ a piece with 1$ insurance on them. That went very well until we got two cease and desist letters from Marvel. This was in 2007

    So to answer your question you just need to figure out what sells well and buy it on the cheap

    EBay can be a good place to sell iphones, video cameras, and other form of high demand electronics; however, you have to make sure that your profit margins are high to make it worthwhile.

    Make sure the items you are selling are not VERO.. This will just have your account banned right away, and all the time you spend on your account would have been for a waste!

    If someone has found a highly profitable niche, they probably wouldn't tell you. However, I can point you in the right direction. Think renewable energy.

    I'd bang her then file a complaint with PP saying that I didn't get the item that was in the description and get my money back.

    I think electronic is not so good.. maybe if you're the manufacture. Target on expansive things, not something what can sell anybody.

    LOL

    You are one to tell someone not to promote themselves.

    That is so funny because you have trolled this forum as a new user pushing yourself and your e books.

    Iphone 5c/5s unlocked would be hot pie for about 6 month. Just find a way to buy them cheap (I think it will be easier if you are from America/China) and sell them.
