Make (good!) money working from home with our guide to the best online jobs.
You can earn large sums of money selling items online by reaching out to people who want to get rid of their stuff but are too busy to do it themselves.
What you bring to the table: Experience selling goods through auctions on eBay and the business savvy required to promote your services.
Expect to earn: Sellers determine the price by the market and the value of items they sell. Some charge a flat per-item fee (often $5 to $25), or take a percentage (20 percent to 40 percent) of total sales. Depending on the volume of your business, reselling on eBay and other sites could become a lucrative full-time job.
How to get started: Active eBay sellers with high ratings and sales can register to be listed on the website’s directory of trading assistants at ebaytradingassistant.com. You need to be a self-starter who knows how to spread the word—to friends, family members, acquaintances and strangers. Check out allyou.com/home-business for more tips on how to market your services.
