Make Money On Ebay In 3 Quick Steps

Nov 8, 2007
In this brief article I'm going to outline how to make money on Ebay in three quick steps. Before we continue, I want to briefly explain what Ebay is and how so many are actually quitting their jobs to earn a living with just Ebay alone.

Ebay is an auction site where you can post an item for sale and have people from around the world bid on it too receive it. There are literally an innumerable amount of items you can list for sale from a pancake that has an image of the Virgin Mary, an old piece of furniture or even your car. You would be amazed at the different things people list on Ebay everyday.

To make money on Ebay you first need to open an account. This is easy and can be done by going to Ebay.com and clicking on register. This only takes a moment and you'll be ready to go. As with anything, make sure you read the terms and conditions listed before submitting your information.

The next step is to find something to sell. This can be the fun part. If your like most people, you have stuff stashed away in your garage, in the attic or packed away in closets that haven't seen the light of day in years. Why not make some money from it.

Now, don't say to yourself, "no one is going to want that old piece of junk!" There is an old saying, "one man's (or women's) junk is another man's treasure". This is the absolute truth. I guarantee that if you list that old sewing machine from the 1920's with cob webs and roach poo on it, someone will bid on it. Someone may have been searching for your exact antique sewing machine for years and would be thrilled to find it and buy it from you.

Now that you have found something to sell you need to list it on Ebay. This is easy to do once you have logged in. Simply click on the "selling" link and then click "get started selling on Ebay". From there you'll need to list the name of the item you are selling.

This is one crucial step many overlook. You need to have good title for your item. For example, don't just put "Sewing Machine", rather use a title like "Rare Antique 1920's Sewing Machine". That title sounds a lot better don't you think?

After you have chosen a great title you'll be taken to another page with a series of options. These options will range from what category you want to be listed in, whether you want to upload a photo of your item, describe the item, set the pricing and what to start the bidding at and finally you'll need to decide whether you want to accept payments via Paypal and if so enter your Paypal email address. If you don't have a Paypal email address you can get one at Paypal.com.

Congratulations, you just listed your first item and bidders should be coming your way shortly.

In conclusion, if you are going to make money on Ebay then simply follow the steps I've outlined above to get started. There are many advanced techniques, strategies and courses on how to be a big time seller on Ebay, but for now just getting used to the system and how it works is important. So, all you have to do is go and find something to sell and see how easy it really is.
