If you’ve ever read an article about eBay, you will have seen the kinds
of incomes people make – it isn’t unusual to hear of people making
thousands of dollars per month on eBay.
Next time you’re on eBay, take a look at how many PowerSellers there
are: you’ll find quite a few. Now consider that every single one of one
of them must be making at least $1,000 per month, as that’s eBay’s
requirement for becoming a PowerSeller.
Silver PowerSellers make at least $3,000 each month,
Gold PowerSellers make more than $10,000,
Platinum Powersellers make more than $25,000, and
Titanium PowerSellers make at least a whopping $150,000 in
sales every month!
The fact that these people exist gives you come idea of the income
possibilities here. Most of them never set out to even set up a business
on eBay – they simply started selling a few things, and then kept
There are plenty of people whose full-time job is selling things on
eBay, and some of them have been doing it for years now.
Can you imagine that? Once they’ve bought the stock, everything else
is pretty much pure profit for these people – they don’t need to pay for
any business premises, staff, or anything else. There are multi-million
pound businesses making less in actual profit than eBay PowerSellers
Even if you don’t want to quit your job and really go for it, you can still
use eBay to make a significant second income. You can pack up orders
during the week and take them down to the post office for delivery
each Saturday. There are few other things you could be doing with
your spare time that have anywhere near that kind of earning
What’s more, eBay doesn’t care who you are, where you live, or what
you look like: some PowerSellers are very old, or very young. Some
live out in the middle of nowhere where selling on eBay is one of the
few alternatives to farming or being very poor.
eBay tears down the barriers to earning that the real world constantly
puts up. There’s no job interview and no commuting involved – if you
can post things, you can do it.
Put it this way: if you know where to get something reasonably
cheaply that you could sell, then you can sell it on eBay – and since
you can always get discounts for bulk at wholesale, that’s not exactly
difficult. Buy a job lot of something in-demand cheaply, sell it on eBay,
and you’re making money already, with no set-up costs.
If you want to dip your toe in the water before you commit to actually
buying anything, then you can just sell things that you’ve got lying
around in the house.
