How to make money buying and reselling on ebay:
It is actually quite easy to make money on ebay from buying and reselling, even for the casual ebayer. In this guide I will give you some basic tips on how to make ebay work for you.
First off, you need to keep up with the times. Make sure you know what's popular at any given time, and when possible, try to get info on what the next big fad will be. This knowledge will help tremendously in your quest to make money on ebay. Having a good idea of what is going to be the next "big thing" allows you to plan your buying. If for example, you hear talk that yo-yo's are going to be big, then you could shop ebay for cool yo-yo's before the fad hits and while the prices are still low. This way, you have bought the item that everyone will be wanting soon, and have gotten it at a low price, because most people dont know that the item is going to be big. This is where you separate yourself from the other people.
Then, a few weeks later, when the yo-yo's become a big hit, and everyone wants the coolest yo-yo they can get, many people will turn to ebay to try to find one. That is where you come in. Since the popularity of the yo-yo's is up, the price is too. Remember that yo-yo you bought a few weeks ago? Well now's the time to sell it. You can sell the yo-yo for much more than you paid, because you were in the know.
As I said, I used yo-yo's merely as an example. This same theory will apply to anything. You just have to keep your eyes and ears open to find out what will be big. Sometimes, it will involve taking a bit of a chance. Sometimes they wont pay off, but most often than not, that chance you took can turn into a nice bit of money in your pocket.
How do you think all those ebayers become power sellers? They follow the old adage of buy low, sell high. Thats what you need to do too. Of course at first you will start out small, but if you get good at it, you too could become a power seller. You might even be able to make a career out of ebaying. Wouldnt that be nice. Be able to stay at home in the mornings, set your own hours, work in whatever clothes you want. Ebay could make your dreams come true.
