There are a lot of ways to make money online, others blog, others do network marketing, others sell at social networking sites like Facebook, Multiply and even in their own blogs. Others resell hosting or domains, others sell at ebay, and others do paid for clicking, paid for reading, or paid for their opinions.
There was a short time in my life when I engaged in selling online. I had a friend who helped and guided me in the ways of ebay. Ebay is actually a lucrative business and is better safeguarded from scammers than most sites. That, in effect, is the main reason why I signed up for ebay and enjoyed a short stint as a seller. I found a supplier from a different social networking turned marketplace website and enjoyed great discounts reselling stuff. Some of my preloved stuff also went to the mix as I sold at ebay. It was a great way of getting rid of things I didn't really need but someone may love or have a need for at the time.
Selling has its perks, I get that high when I get a high positive feedback. That the person you sold an item to, appreciates the way you pack the stuff you send. The efficiency and thought you put into the item and the freebies you try to include as you appreciate and hope that more business will come your way.
I am actually reconsidering selling online again. I found a supplier of vintage jewelry that I can't take my eyes off of and I am planning to open an offline and an online store again perhaps through Ebay or Multiply.But jewelry and fashion accessories are seasonal so it is best to open a store when graduation comes or during Christmas season, a time when people are willing to shell out money for their friends and love ones.
What about you? If you were to open an online shop? What would you sell? I am also taking a fancy on educational toys but I'm more of a buyer in that category than a seller.
