First thing is first-
TIP #1 to start making money on ebay you PROBABLY should first do a couple of things to
safeguard yourself. If you do not use any of the methods listed in this article at least do
these simple things –this is worth the money you paid now if you haven’t already done these
things. Maintain more than one ebay account – this is done by many people – including
myself- to help separate business and business and business and pleasure.
For example you should have one account that you purchase items from and one that
you sell items from. If you find a good deal somewhere and buy it and then try to sell it for
more –It doesn’t take a genius to look at your feedback and see how much you bought the
item for. If you were looking for items that I have sold using the techniques described below
from the ebay account that you bought this from – You probably won’t find too many.
Buyers look at feedback and the other products you are selling. I am not going to sell this
ebook on the same account that I sell the items that I acquire using the applied methods.
Anyway there are many more reasons but the low down is get a separate account for selling
items—USE a name that is easily associated with something –don’t use your name for your
selling account. And Yes this is an acceptable practice on eBay and by eBay–Just DO NOT
bid on your own items from one account to another –Trust me you will get caught. And do
not try to overcharge on shipping Your auction will get canceled.
REMEMBER WHEN OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT FEEDBACK MAKES THE EBAY
WORLD GO AROUND – SO YOU MAY HAVE TO FIND ITEMS TO SELL AT FIRST TO
BRING YOUR FEEDBACK UP – YOU CAN NOT USE THE BUY IT NOW FUNCTION
UNTIL YOU HAVE 10 POSITIVE FEEDBACKS UNLESS YOU HAVE PAYPAL THEN IT IS
5-this is one of the key ideas when selling ebooks and efiles that will be mentioned later in
the book. That is why you will see some ebooks and efiles selling for 1 cent which when
paid through Paypal equals 0 cents – These items are sold to bring the feedback level up.
Many times this can be accomplished by selling items that you have around the house – I
personally have sold many books, computer games, magazines, computer parts, coins,
DVDs, - just to pay ebay fees and build some feedback numbers. Don’t be afraid to sell
large items as Pick Up only – I have sold many things that I was throwing away and ended
up making some money off of with little effort.
Tip # 2-Open a checking account with a debit/credit card – Put only enough money in the
account that is necessary to do what you need to do –this account should be linked to you
PAY PAL account –
Which should be mentioned that you should also have a Paypal account? This way you can
sleep at night knowing that if something bad happens that only that account is harmed or
affected. This account will be beneficial for later when you are making purchases online –
this credit/debit card can be used so that it is easier to track your earnings and again if the
information gets out – you are only out what you had in the separate account.
OK sorry but I had to get that out.
Please remember as you read this – you do not have a lot of money invested in these ideas
and if just one of them works just once then you have paid for this ebook – I am not
promising you millions but if you research and apply these strategies over a period of time or
in your free time – You will make money.
That’s what makes mine different from all of the rest – which you are getting the bonus of
having many money making ideas that are sold on eBay in one Package. Not just one
In the following pages I will be giving you exact tips and tricks that can be used,
Along with examples and illustrations to successfully make money on and off the
Internet using these methods. Maybe you are a person that likes to spend time on the
computer searching for deal OR maybe you like to go out and find a good Deal –OR maybe
THIS IS A VERY EXTENSIVE LIST OF THINGS TO DO – DO NOT RUSH THROUGH THIS
EBOOK AND MAKE QUICK JUDGEMENTS OR GET OVERWHELMED – SLOWLY READ/
PRINT OUT THIS BOOK. THERE ARE MANY IDEAS HERE – WHEN YOU FIRST START
YOU MAY WANT TO START SLOW – MANY IDEAS TAKE SOME TIME TO GET USE TO
AND MANY TAKE SOME TIME AT FIRST BUT ONCE YOU START IT BECOMES A HABIT.

LETS GET TO THE MEAT AND POTATOES
I. How to profit selling “Wholesale Lists”
II How to profit using www.craigslist.org and using www.slickdeals.net
III. How to profit using your local Newspaper
IV. How to profit reselling event tickets
V. How to profit selling “Ebooks” and “Efiles”
VI. How to profit selling everyday information.
I. How to profit selling “Wholesale Lists”
Selling the downloadable WHOLESALE LIST has become a very popular trend on eBay –
Many of these auctions – including mine – sell a list of places/websites that offer
DROPPSHIPPING – WHOLESALE LOTS – AND OTHER CLOSE OUT DEALS-
This list alone if you want to actually start a business is a great reference guide and
worth at least $9.99
TAKE SOME TIME AND DOWNLOAD THE LIST – GO THROUGH THE SITES LISTED –
IF YOU WANT TO START A WHOLESALE OR DROPSHIPPING BUSINESS THIS IS A
GOOD RESOURCE. If you don’t know what drop shipping is basically they ship the item
right to the customer with your name on it.
Many eBay members also make money selling this list as an open auction
featuring a picture of one of the products that can be bought from one of the
dealers on the list – This type of auction description usually clearly states that the
person is buying a WHOLESALE LIST AND NOT THE PICTURE SHOWN
However many people do not read descriptions and bid more than $9.99 for the
LIST. This may seem unethical but is not illegal and not prohibitive by eBay
because the description clearly states that it is a LIST and not the product shown.
I am revealing this –not because I do it- but because I am trying to show you how
to make a profit selling items on eBay and at the same time making you aware to
read all auction descriptions and check sellers feedback before placing a bid on a
product. READ—Again though the WHOLESALE LIST IS A GREAT RESOURCE
OF MATERIAL This is one of those items that many eBay members sell at a low
price just to cover their cost and to get feedback scores up so that they can later
sell it at a higher cost and if negative feedback is left it does not affect the
feedback rating enough to concern would be buyers later on down the road. For
many examples of this practice just type in Wholesale List on eBay.
http://web.liquidation.com/ has some great deals if you want to start making money doing
SO WHAT DO I DO?
You can research the wholesale list for businesses that dropship or sell wholesale items or
you can make you own listing and sell the WHOLESALE LIST itself
II How to profit using www.craigslist.org and using
Lets see how to profit using craigslist.org
First off an introduction to craigslist.org, www.craigslist.org is a gigantic directory
of things to buy and sell, services, jobs, and much more.. It is like a giant garage or yard sale
minus the driving, getting up early, and loads of useless junk. It is like eBay minus the
bidding, and minus the fees! It has a text-only interface making it fast loading and ad-free.
Best of all there are no fees, it’s free to buy and sell things using Craigslist.org.
So how does it make you money.
You use craigslist.org on a daily basis, this is one of the first things you should do in the
morning after waking up. This is good idea because many of the good deals are listed and
the early bird gets the worm. Many folks use the list to get rid of items they no longer need
—some of them know about ebay and some of them do not. Craigslist has many different
categories other than the “for sale” section browsing the other sections don’t limit yourself to
just the for sale but for the sake of this section we will focus on “for sale”
You should check the for sale section for items that would be easy to sell and ship on ebay –
Or items that you can list FOR pick up only. The easiest way to check deals on Craigslist
and following websites is to go to eBay and use the Completed Items check box. When
you search eBay for items with the Completed Items box checked it will show you the price in
which items are selling for on eBay. If you are not familiar with completed items – Then log
on to eBay on MyAccount – before searching for an item – Put a check mark in the box
which should be on the left hand side of your screne that states Completed Items – Once
you press search this will show you in GREEN what the selling prices were for that particular
item sold on ebay.
When searching on Craigslist I recently found a few great deals - Heres how it panned out.
First look on Craigs list---
Cam corder was in good working order and it was an easy buy – Sold on ebay as a BUY IT
NOW for $125.00 – Not to bad of a turn around.
The next thing was a slightly used Credit Car Machine. The guy from Craigslist wanted $25
for the machine which was in working order. I bought the machine and sold it on eBay for
$110.00. It was a quick turn around on my money.
I usually will pick one day to schedule going to buy items from Craigslist.
Another example which I picked up the same day was a Table Saw listed on Craiglists – the
guy wanted $75 but ended up taking $50 for the saw –ON Craigslist you can bargain with
people more than on ebay –it is kind of like a reverse auction or yard sale – I listed the item
on eBay as a Pick Up only and sold it for $145. The great thing about craigslist is that it is
local, you can meet up with the seller in person, so that’s exactly what I did. I looked over the
condition, (it was great), made sure all parts were there, common sense type checks.
If you live in or near a city where the crigslist.org community is big, you will have a lot of
options to choose from..
Browse through your cities “for sale” section
Look for potential products that you can sell (I usually stick to electronics/technology
products or items that I know)
Slickdeals.net - I love this sight for bargains and information
Slickdeals.net is a site dedicated to providing some of the best deals to
Products and services on and off the net. It is self proclaimed as “Your source for the best
deals on the net”. www.SlickDeals.net provides coupons, discounts,freebies and more on
products ranging from airline tickets to wrist watches! They even have deals on services
such as inexpensive car rentals and floral delivery, they truly have it all. I use this site on a
daily basis, usually spending about 15 to 20 mins. browsing the forum looking at some of the
newly listed deals. The best time again to search through slickdeals is in the morning time –
Many people use the forum to get great deals – and if you act to late the deals maybe
“Dead” –This is a term used on slickdeals to let you know the Deal no longer exists.
One recent example that I got on slickdeals was the TMX Tickle me Elmo doll-
Slickdeals forum members reported two sights that were selling the Elmo doll for $39.99 with
free shipping. The limit was two –unless you used two different email addresses-which I did
– and received 4 of the Elmo dolls for $160.00. The Elmo dolls were easily going for $90 to
$100 dollars plus shipping on eBay. Easy profit – dolls came –listed them on Ebay – got the
money –shipped them out in the same box that they came in. Had to invest some time on
the computer and going to the post office AND TO THE BANK.
As stated earlier the entire site is great but I will be concentrating on one particular section.
This section is in the forum and is titled “Hot Deals”. It’s kind of squeezed in there so I will
provide a screenshot.
GO TO the homepage of WWW.SLICKDEALS.NET, click on the Forums link to enter the Hot deals
Now click on the Hot Deals Section
In here you will find posts from users all across the U.S. posting deals, coupons,
rebates, discounts, etc. on all types of products and services.
Remember, just because you see a product under
Hot Deals doesn’t mean that it has a high profiting re-sell value.
Use the “completed items” search function on eBay to see if it is worth it..
Slickdeals.net shows you a lot ways to get great bargains at everyday neighborhood stores.
Most regular stores offer 30 day returns, although I don’t practice this I know in the back of
my mind that if I bought a few hundred of a certain product and tried reselling them but was
unsuccessful, I know that I can simply return them. This offers me absolutely no risk! I
recently in a well known store looking for a deal that I found on slickdeals—another great
thing is that it can be used for items that you need at home-not only to resell –anyway back
to the example and I noticed the store had electronic items CLEARANCE at 70% off –One in
particular was a Cannon ink cartridge that they were selling for $2.00 – I knew that I could
get at least that and more so I bought them all –Each one sold for $21 minus shipping was
$17 – Pretty good profit and built up my feedback for my new account –((Mentioned earlier.))
SO HERE IT IS AGAIN
go to www.slickdeals.net - click on the “Forums” link - and click on the “Hot Deals”
Decide on a “hot deal” to sell using basic knowledge and eBay Completed items
If the profit margin is good, go ahead and purchase the items and list them on eBay
Many deals will be listed on slickdeals.net that are at your local stores –Many times stores
such as Big Lots or Kmart will have items that they are selling well below cost and are just
taking a huge loss on –These items can be bought and sold rather easily on ebay –Again
use the completed items function and remember when you buy from a store they usually will
take it back within 30 days with a receipt.
If nothing else you will save money on things you need to buy – here are some more great
(Go to the Forums and key in what your interested in)
III. How to profit using your local Newspaper.
How to profit using your local Newspaper’s Classified Ads With the advent of the
internet, it is now easier than ever before to view your local Newspaper online. If you don’t
know your local Newspaper’s website you can use http://www.newspaperlinks.com to find it.
This site gives a list of all the different Newspaper websites across the nation. The
classifieds have all types of items in them ranging from pets to cars. You
can find great deals on an assortment of products. Ok great, now that you have found your
local Newspaper’s website, look for the Classified Ads section. All Newspaper sites are
designed differently but most will
have tabs in the header of the page. There is an alternative to the online edition of the
Newspaper and that’s the hard copy edition that you can find at the gas station or maybe you
already get it delivered to your door. I prefer to use the online edition because not only is it
free, but it is also easier to take notes with a simple copy and paste to a note pad if you
happen to find a deal. Through my experience I have noticed that many people use
classifieds to sell their goods because of its proven exposure, most newspapers have
hundreds of thousands of readers and because of this it makes it a great source sell things
in. I will be concentrating on how you can take advantage of buying items in the classified
section and converting it into profit. I will also give you some of the exact resources that I use
to help determine profits, etc. Most sellers that have their items listed in the newspapers are
amateur one time Sellers and many do not know how to use eBay, these sellers are usually
first time sellers and are very eager to sell there item. Most of the time the seller has to pay a
heavy fee to list there item in the classified ads. Keeping the item listed there longer means
more fees, so they want to sell it right away and they are willing to negotiate in almost all
cases. Again you can use this as a reverse auction bidding down the asking price instead of
bidding up- Taking advantage of that weakness is key to bringing down the low cost of an
item even lower.
Also in local newspaper is public awareness on auctions – I have made a great deal of
money by going to local Bin auctions – This is where storage places have storage bins up for
auction –The renters did not pay the bill so the storage business is permitted by law to sell
the items within the storage area or bins. These are usually the self storage places that you
rent a small garage space and store your own items for a monthly fee. When you don’t pay
they list the auction in the paper and allow bidders to place bids on the bins. Usually the
storage place will open the bin for you and others bidders inspection - You normally are not
permitted to go inside and root through the boxes and other items – you usually are only
permitted to look from an outside view point. Then you place your bid in a sealed manner –
High bidder gets everything in the bin. I have paid $250 for a bin and made over $1000
selling the items – Large old knife collections, old coins, jewelry, large screen TV, old
Budweiser light, and tools. The most recent bin I purchased had cases of body jewelry in it –
Belly rings, eye rings, and hemp necklaces. I went straight to a Tattoo shop and the shop
bought all of it for more than I bought the whole bin for. Bin auctions are for those people
who like the adventure of money making and many treasures can easily be found. Don’t
overlook or shrug off this idea – At least make an effort at one and you will see the potential
for profit. Doesn’t take long and after the first time it becomes easier and less confusing.
IV How to profit reselling event tickets
Tickets to the hottest events usually sell out really fast, usually on the first day.
The key to getting highly profitable tickets are to get them either on the first day
or before the first day of sale, also known as pre-sale tickets. This can all be
done from the comfort of your home. I will explain how you can get access to
pre-sale tickets and give you a list of sites that offer pre-sale codes on occasion.
If you are just starting off with re-selling event tickets we suggest that you start
selling tickets of events that take place in your own city, to ensure general
knowledge and background of the city and venue. Once you get the hang of it you
can start buying tickets in other cities. Before purchasing any event tickets you need to
research a few key elements to ensure profitability. The two things to Research before
purchasing tickets: Supply and demand The Supply of the event – The Supply of the event’s
venue is an important
factor. The lower the seats available the more the profitability for each ticket will be. Another
factor in supply is how many times that event will run, If a big name act comes to town and
there is only one show available more than likely you can count on the show selling out.
The Demand of the event - Study the demand of the event that is going to take
place, whether it’s a sports event, like an College Basketball game or whether it’s a
country concert like Kenny Chesney, you can determine if the event will sellout based on a
key factors, the advertising/publicity of the event, the talk around town, radio
announcements, study the trend of past performances or games.
Where to buy tickets
Ticketmaster.com is the number one source for purchasing tickets off the internet
and from the comfort of your home. This is the main source in which I buy my
very own tickets for reselling. Its fast and it is very easy to use. There is one
other option to Ticketmaster.com that I use, and that is going to the actual
(physical) box office.
There is one trick of the trade that I will now discuss that will allow you to
purchase the tickets before the general public can purchase them. Only a select
few with presale codes will be able to purchase pre-sale tickets.
Where to buy pre-sale tickets
Buying pre-sale ticket for the most part is done on ticketmaster.com, but it
requires a pre-sale code, getting access to the pre-sale codes is the tricky part,
here are a few sites that I personally use to get my pre-sale codes:
Fatwallet - http://www.fatwallet.com/t/24/581239 this is the section of the forum
dedicated to the discussion of presale codes to events ranging from sports
games to local shows, a great source for presale codes from all across the
TalkTix.com – this is another discussion forum where professional and nonprofessional
ticket brokers come to discuss pre-sale codes and give the heads
up on the best tickets. Also in depth discussion of what to buy, and what not to buy take
Sign up on the artist’s and Radio Stations mailing list / fan club – Most
artist’s have official websites and on there website they have fan clubs or mailing
lists, be sure to sign up for those, as a lot of times they give you access to the
pre-sale codes before the general public. Artist use the radio stations to promote
their concerts/events be sure to sign up for the radio stations mailing list as well.
You may want to create a separate email account just for receiving updates and information
on concerts and tickets.
Two methods in re-selling tickets: Craigslist.org and eBay.com
As stated earlier craigslist.org is a great place for buying and selling on the
internet, there are absolutely no fees! Because Craiglist is local, I have found
great success in selling there. Many ticket buyers will usually check either
Craiglist or eBay. It is also easy to meet up with your buyers and do the
exchange, it also usually sells faster because they can meet up with you face to
face and they are more trusting. Ebay is still a great place for selling event
tickets, they have a dedicated section for selling event tickets. Because of
eBay’s massive popularity, the number of people searching for tickets on a given
event is worldwide. You can easily list your tickets and find buyers for them. It is
important that you have good feedback, because people are very skeptical
when it comes to buying event tickets. Ebay also has restrictions on certain sporting event
tickets and season ticket sales so make sure you research before you buy a ton of tickets
Ticket master offers two forms of tickets when you’re making your purchase, that is a
“Physical ticket” (one that is mailed to you and actually sent to a physical mailing address)
and “ticketfast tickets”, (one that is
sent via email immediately after making your purchase) you can actually print these tickets
from home and walk right up to the ticket booth of the concert. I recommend using “ticketfast
tickets” not only is it quick and convenient but its easier to send a link when reselling using
“ticketfast tickets” rather than having to wait a week or two for your “hard tickets” to arrive in
the mail. If you’re re-selling the tickets on craigslist.org and you are
using “ticketfast tickets”, simply print it up and when you meet them give it to
them. If your re-selling the tickets on eBay, simply send them a copy of the link to print up
the tickets themselves. Once again this is where feedback comes into play, having a higher
feedback lets the buyers know that you are trustworthy and it also produces higher ticket
SO HERE IT IS = Research the Supply and Demand, Use Ticketmaster.com to
Sign up for the artists/sports team/ radio stations official fan club or mailing lists to
pre-sale codes, Use Fatwallet and Talktix to get the inside scoops on what’s tickets
are hot and what’s tickets are not! Use Craigslist and Ebay to re-sell your tickets
V. How to profit selling “Ebooks” and “Efiles”
How to profit selling ebooks and e files – I have available some example downloads on the
website for your viewing and or selling. Many ebay members are selling GIGs of efiles –
containing countless files for your computer –Including ebooks, htmls, tutorials, graphics,
photoshop templates, webpage templates, fonts and anything else you can think of.
UNLIKE THIS EBOOK THE OTHER ITEMS THAT YOU CAN DOWNLOAD FROM THE
LINK ARE YOURS TO KEEP AND OR RESELL. These items can be bought and resold for a
profit – HereS how you do it –I bought mine from webprofitheaven247-- Oh that’s great you
say why don’t you give it to me –well because it has 13 GIGS of information –If you don’t
know how much that is – Please research it –anyway –You can use the buy it now and get it
for pretty cheap –BUT these places often offer it for .99 or less to build feedback – Just put a
bid in for it for .99 – If you get outbid the place will give you a second chance offer –WHY
because they have all of this information on a host somewhere for you to download – they
don’t care how much it sells for because they are paying for it either way if they sell 100 or
1000 – so here is the website and password –however I don’t know if it will still be good –if
not you may have to invest the .99 cents http://webprofitheaven.com/ user
name is ebay password is profits. Here you can download thousands of files that can be
resold as individual files on the internet –The idea is simple – the process takes a little while
to set up. But it is a legitimate way to make money. And once you have the system set up –
it runs itself.
Basically you take a file like I have given you to download – Make a eBay action for it
and sell it for a small price and email the file to the person upon payment – Once you have
the Ebay auction and file you can do this countless times with little or no effort – Once you
have enough feedbacks and profits gathered you can host these files on a domain with a
password and have them automatically or digitally delivered to the recipient without doing
anything. Paypal account is required.
VI. How to profit selling everyday information.
How to profit selling everyday information I stumbled upon this technique of selling everyday
information when I was buying Items on the internet. I was trying to find some discounts that
were available on the net. I searched for about 30 minutes and found a site that offered a
great deal, it was for $30 off the regular price of a $50
admission ticket to Disney land, so I saved $60 on both of our tickets! I was elated to say the
least. Then the business side of me kicked in, I thought “what if others knew about this site,
they too could save a lot of money”. So I though to myself “let’s see if this info could sell on
eBay. I listed the info on eBay putting in the title, Save $60 on Disney Land tickets and in the
description I simply and plainly said, “I am selling a link on where you can purchase Disney
Land tickets for $60 off the regular price of admission” Shipping is free via email. To sum it
up, I sold the info for $5, it was really just sending them the link via email, that’s all it really
was. This type of eBay listing can be listed over and over again, Just make sure the link is
not Dead, it took about 5 mins to create a very basic text only listing on eBay and I just re-
listed the auction once it ended and kept doing that until the deal was no good anymore.
So HERES HOW ITS DONE AGAIN
Find a deal or discount in the form of information, coupon code, etc.
Get that info and put it in the form of a listing on eBay
If it sells then great! If it doesn’t no big deal nothing lost, try again.
WELL THAT’S IT – PLEASE CONSIDER THERE ARE MANY GREAT IDEAS HERE THAT
WILL MAKE YOU MONEY –HOWEVER YOU DO HAVE TO PUT FORTH THE EFFORT – I
KNOW THESE IDEAS WILL MAKE MONEY BECAUSE I HAVE DONE JUST THAT USING
THESE IDEAS –AGAIN IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE ITEMS SOLD ON EBAY ON
THIS USER NAME YOU PROBABLY WON’T FIND TOO MANY – A FEW YES BUT AGAIN
MULTIPLE USER ACCOUNTS IS PERMITTED BY EBAY AND MANY SELLERS DO JUST
GOOD LUCK AND MAKE SOME MONEY
