What is Ebay selling really like?

Expect to meet some really unpleasant people since many of Ebay customers include

  1. Big cheapskates
  2. Very rude
  3. Very demanding
  4. Selfish people
  5. Want say £10,000 car for just £10
  6. Prepared to get asked very strange questions like someone asked me if you can use phone to clean your  beard

Can you make money from this?

Yes you can but you need to make sure you can reply to emails fast since people on Ebay expect emails more less instant whether they buy off you or not. You need to be able to offer the cheapest price  on Ebay the same as the cheapest supplier at the moment or cheaper if possible so you can generate sales faster.

You would best to use  cheap delivery of the post office for around £0.79 unless you are selling more expensive things then you can use premium  delivery firms like UPS,Parcel Force. A good tool to get is a program for making lables for you simply type into the machine the address the person full address it’s almost as  fast as typing on a computer and to me it looks nice and professional you can easy buy one for £30 or less .

You need a scale if you are selling more heavier items this can be great if you are using delivery firms since it can easy give you good weight which should be correct if you get a good quality one you can get them for around £30 and it should last  you a long time I got one which was meant to be the same one e-commerce store owners often use it works very fast and I never had any complaints or wrong weight from delivery firms from me using it so could not fault using one.

You should pick a niche to sell which is already popular so you don’t need to build up the demand yourself and please note Ebay selling can  be very unpredictable since you have horrible week sales wise than on Sunday night you get on a lot orders it is quite common for Ebay customers to buy your products through out the night even as late as say 3 am so if you can try and be prepared to reply quickly to them since the faster you reply  back the customer the qucker the sales will normally come in unless it’s one of the usual sarcastic people you geto on Ebay
