Making money on eBay isn’t just for cleaning out your house, you CAN make a serious income.
From a couple of hundred to thousands a week is totally possible.
Don’t expect it to happen over night and don’t think you can quit your day job and keep your family fed with just income on this or you will regret it.
On an up side, when you do start making money you will have to be very diligent and it honestly should be a two person job.
We have our own little set up way of doing things but the one thing that we couldn’t stress more…
know your weak points and be real about your expectations.
We have been in the flipping business for over a year now and have been pretty successful.
Sometimes we blow our own minds as to how fast this has went from hobby to income.
With a few basic skills you can get to where you can this efficiently and
diligently if you are willing to stick with it.
Say you go out to find things to sell..let’s just say a Mom and Pop shop up the road.
Chances are that
1. you have shopped there before
2. You know them by name and they know you.
3. They are easy to work with on prices.
This is exactly how this played out in real life for us
We pop in and always chat for a few minutes and then we begin our scoping out. Stuff here doesn’t move fast so we know we have leverage in that respect.
Box of cables, various types and sizes, been here since the 1900’s
ME: Hey how much you give me for the whole box?
Owner: What ya thinking?
Me: I am thinking about reselling in my store.
Owner: Well there is a bunch there, probably not even worth the box they are all in.
Me: So about $5 then?
Owner: *thinking*…..how about $10
Me: Well if that’s your bottom dollar I will take it.
What all was in that box?
Well about 15 HDMI cables in good condition totally useable
AC/DC power chargers for various things from Computers to electric skillets to Coax Cables like the kind you use for Dish and other satellite companies. A couple of decent chargers for Power Wheels toys…and just a ton of little different USB charger cords and the like.
That $10 box of power cords when one sold , it paid for the whole box of them.
So how do you test stuff like that to make sure it works?
Well YouTube has a ton of videos that can teach you a crap ton of information.
How to use an OHM meter to test things.
Yep that got me like 50+ different ways to do the same thing by 50 different people.
So want to know more about what we do and how we do it…well simple keep checking back here on our blog or easier you can find us on Facebook…
That’s all for today, time to get back to getting my store in order and packaging out more goodies.
