  • books are great... All you have to do is enter in the ISBN numbers and most of the listing work is done for you. You can get books from library sales at a great deal. Some sales are an entire bag of books for $1, etc. Good luck!

  • I have sold a lot on ebay. I really like doing it and it brings in some good money from time to time. I looked around the house and found stuff i didn't want anymore and auctioned it. Also, i find stuff real cheap at yard sales and then i resale it and get more than what i paid for it. My main thing is I am always fair with my shipping and that makes the bidder happy and they will bid more (if that makes sense). Just remember to be as accurate as possible in your listing about the item. If you have any questions, just let me know.

  • I stay away from the "out of the norm" stuff, like socks and underwear. I go for kids' clothes, beauty products, electronics, etc.

  • You can't sell used underwear on ebay. In order to make money on ebay you have to post a lot of stuff in categories that are popular. Take time to browse the categories to see what sells and at what price.

    My personal experiences has been that the stuff that sells best is the stuff I had listed for dirt cheap. Not an easy way to make money. Plus you have to build up your positive feedback while make sure you don't get any negative feedback and some people are extremely picky. I got 1 star once in one of the catgories and I have no idea who it was because no one complained about anything.
