Use Ebay To Earn Extra Money

I am returning to one of my favourite pass times to write about how you can earn extra money online. It has been a while since I have bought and sold on Ebay. Time was back a few years back when a month never went by without me having at least two items on sale on Ebay. Maybe I cleared all my unwanted items, maybe life got busy, but it was never too far away and now I have moved house, it’s time once more to take a look through items that might sell and get them listed so that I can get some extra money in to pay for my petrol!!!

Do you Ebay? If so what do you sell and how do you know it will sell? When I first started selling on Ebay, I put up bits of old computer equipment that was gathering dust but was still completely useable. I got rid of car stereos, old stereo amplifiers and speakers. I even managed to sell some ski boots that I had acquired. I had great success selling on Ebay and earned money enough to pay off some bills and enjoyed a long hot summer.

Having acquired the habit of not impulse buying, I now don’t really have lots of extra stuff around that I don’t use or need, however as I said, I have just moved house, not only that I am now sharing with someone and we have both moved from homes where we lived alone and had all the space to ourselves. Consequently there is now two of everything. Two microwaves, two kettles, two juicers and blenders galore. Luckily the kitchen in our new home is large, otherwise we’d be tripping over boxes and kitchen appliances.

We have both yet to sort out what is staying and what’s going, but once it’s done, the portable photography studio will be set up and that will be the next photography project, to photograph all the items that are to go on sale ready for the listings.

Photographs are essential if you want to earn the most money from your Ebay sales. Whilst it may be ok to do without, it is not like you won’t make a sale without a photo, it is just that you will make a better sale with one. Photographs allow Ebay buyers to see exactly what they are getting for their money. So if you haven’t already got yourself a digital camera, I would strongly suggest getting one that will help you to earn extra money by selliing on Ebay

    I remember when I first started selling on ebay, I sold absolutely everything that wasn’t essential, I just loved it, and still do. Unwanted items are a great place to start.

      Most definately, I am going to increase my Ebay selling this year. I have recently moved and some of the stuff from the other house doesn’t fit so I am going to be floggin it on Ebay. Remember though thst some things won’t sell or are too much hassle (especially big items) so I put these on FreeCycle so at least they can get used by someone else.
