    I used to sell stuff on ebay... but that was long ago. I used dropshippers to sell antiques. Yeah, it was profitable

        I use to do well with ebay selling used items. I got out of it back in 2000 but I still sell a few items a year.

        I now am an affiliate of ebay and make several hundred dollars a month. I use a few scripts such as BANs and phpbay. They both have their advantages and disadvantages but if I had to choose one I would pick phpbay works well with wordpress. Bans is stand alone.

        I am sure there are other great scripts out there that do the same these are just two I have used.

        I bring this method up as another means of implementing ebay to make money.

          I have a neighbor that sells things she found a garage sales all winter and uses the money for a vacation. It's enough to pay for travel, hotel, food and more junk to sell on eBay every year. I don't have the patience for the listing, packing and shipping. But I'm curious about becoming an eBay affiliate after reading these other posts!

            One of the main reasons I got out of online auctions selling physical products was I started seeing several trends.

            I was seeing a trend I did not like. What I say here is I would get emails after auction close about dropping shipping fees or if it was a local person if they could stop by and pick it up. I started getting more emails asking questions that were clearly answered in the ads. I felt that I was spending more time answering emails than listing products. I managed to maintain 100% seller feedback but it was becoming much more difficult.

            I was already familiar with affiliate marketing at this point.

            So I basically realized that affiliate marketing would eliminate some of the issues I was dealing with and I would not have to deal with returns or shipping either. I do not regret the decision in any way.

            At one point I was going to get back into it I had even purchased another scale but right at this time they decided to muck with the feedback rules and that is when I decided no besides I was doing well with affiliate stuff I figured my returns may be less.

            Don't get me wrong. Online auctions are a great way to sell stuff online and make money it is a great revenue channel.

            now is not the best time to become an ebay affiliate, they are bringing in some form of quality scoring on the traffic you send to them, and if your traffic doesn't preform they drop you, alot of affiliates have had their accounts canceled at the drop of a hat very recently.

            search the forum theres a whole discussion on it.

        Looks like you have a couple free books that are recommended. Go through them and after your done, check out the 4 Tier Annihilation Method by Alex Goad.

        Its an ebook that deals selling on ebay with the step by step type of format. Inside he spells out how to start small, what to start with, and get up to bigger ticket items. He also describes the way he goes about finding what's selling and how to capitalize on it.

        What I specifically like about it is how he describes how he uses ebay to leverage what he is going to sell. I purchased it recently and can provide a brief description of the chapter layout if you like. Overall, if you do a little research on Alex Goad you will see that he's produced some quality stuff. Recently he put out a 300+ page product called Affiliate Payload that has some good reviews here in the WF. PM me if your interested and I'll send you the chapter breakdown...

    I used to sell on E-bay. Mostly things I found at garage sales or in stores on clearance. I did well until E-bay changed their fees. I know they just recently changed their fee structure again but I have already moved on to other things.

    I used to sell ebooks and made a few thousand a month doing that. However with fees continually raising and rules getting more difficult, it made it difficult in that respect so I left to start something else.

    A lot of the big name ebook sellers are probably still making a killing though.
