Is selling on Ebay Profitable?

by crankit98 29 replies
Have any ever had success selling on ebay? I want to try my hand in
selling cds and dvds but want to learn more.

I was this rather pricey membership site named skyhighauctions.com (its
$267.00) but wantto know if anyone know a good pdf, or membership
that teaches how to sale on ebay at a cheaper price.

And is it worth selling pc repair cds and dvds on ebay in the first place?

Thanks for any advice on this.

    Depends what you sell, how much it is and how you market it.

    Would you buy a CD of ebay from yourself?

    What does work is selling things at break even or a loss and adding them to your list. It really depends on your pain threshold and your long term goals.

      Selling on ebay can definitely be profitable, I know because I have done it for the past couple years or so and have made some descent extra income. I'm not sure about pc repair cds, but I wrote a book that teaches people how and where to get profitable items to sell on ebay and I use to sell it for 9.99 per copy on ebay. These days I just give it away as a viral ebook. Try going to storage locker auctions and try using craigslist to get proitable items to sell. You can find some really good items this way. Hope this helps!

      I agree here. A good strategy is to make money on the backend, be it an opt in, an upsell product etc.

      Also, if you are sellign things at a cheap break even price you will likely get a lot of sales meaning you are building your account history up. This is very important when selling in the future..people really look at quantity of sales from the seller when they are determining who to buy from

    You have to sell a lot of CDs and DVDs to make a living on eBay.

    I used to make really good money selling (dropshipping) sports memorabilia. And then started helping others to sell their vehicles. I made so much doing that, that I was able to start my own auto dealership.

    Anyway...think about the profit you'll make and whether or not it's worth all the packing and trips to the post office.

    Depends what you sell. Ebooks used to be the best seller but it is hard work these days.

    It is possible to sell CD's on Ebay and make good money. I know because I have done it. These were music CD's and I once wrote an ebook telling how I did it. Pmail me if you want a (FREE) copy.

    eBay is saturated unless you find something that is sort of unique. Dropshipping has become less profitable but if you buy in wholesale from a good distributor you can get decent amount of profit.

    Ebay is definately very profitable with the right product and the right market.

    My brother took over my ebay business and makes a very very good full time living doing so.

    Ebay is still VERY VERY profitable, and arguably one of the fastest ways to get traffic.

    You just have to know what to sell!!!

    It is also under-rated as a testing tool....

    As usual just my $0.02

      eBay is free? What a mug I must have been to keep paying them all those listing and final value fees

      To the OP, unless you have access to a cheap and reliable source of in-demand items, I'd go for creating or commissioning your own exclusive products - or concentrate on a very specialist area within a larger niche.
