Many work at home businesses got their start from people cleaning out their attics and selling their surplus belongings on eBay. Even if you have never been to the eBay.com, you may be able to turn your clutter, crafts, hobbies, or interests into money by selling them on the site.
First, if you do not already have an eBay account, you will need to set one up. This is a relatively quick and painless process. Once you have an account, you will need to register as a seller. This involves submitting your checking account or credit card number for verification.
After you have become a verified member of eBay, you will need to decide what you are going to sell. Before spending money on inventory and marketing, do some research to see how many other people are selling similar items. It is possible to compete with other sellers on EBay, but it can be difficult when you are just starting out. If the market for your particular product is saturated, you may want to sell something else.
If you make unique crafts, candles, or other items, listing your wares will dramatically expand your customer base. People from all over the world shop on eBay and by adding your products to the mix you just might end up selling your homemade quilt to someone in Australia.
