Make Money Online? Yes, You Can!

There are several ways to make money selling online. Whether it's a product or a service, here are some tips and suggestions to help get you started:

  • EBay is the auction site most people use to sell items they have on hand, regardless of whether they are new or used. In order to sell online with eBay, you have to establish an account. You can go to eBay and read their FAQ page. It's quite easy to do. You will need to give them a credit card number, name and address, telephone number, username and password.
  • When you sell items on eBay, you can elect to have payment made to you via PayPal, which is the safest and fastest form of payment available on eBay. You will also have to set up an account with PayPal. They require a savings- or checking account so that funds can be withdrawn directly from your PayPal account and deposited into that account.
  • When selling items on eBay, research similar items to determine where to set your price. Keep in mind that eBay charges fees for the listing and for uploading photos, and PayPal also takes a percentage of any payment received. Read all of the information about selling on both sites so that you can price your items accordingly.
  • is another company that is quite popular with consumers who want to sell items. You have the ability to list your items and set a price. When a seller chooses your item, you will receive payment immediately and the requirements for confirming payment and sending out the items will be sent to you by Amazon. It is a fast and easy process, and payments are deposited directly into your checking account. There is no third party involvement or additional fees. (If you’ve ever purchased used CDs or DVDs from Amazon, you will already be familiar with the process. The customer pays via credit card and you receive full credit; plus, Amazon takes care of the postage fees, so it doesn't cost you a penny to mail the item to the buyer.)
  • If you provide a service, such as writing articles for websites, you can set your price accordingly by putting up a website and advertising your services. Of course, word of mouth is important, as is search engine optimization, but that's an entirely different subject (and industry!) altogether.
  • Finally, if you are starting your own home business selling gift baskets or other items, there are plenty of websites that offer information, tools, resources, tips and other comprehensive information to help you get started.

If you decide you want to make money selling online, you can succeed with the proper amount of research, commitment, diligence and as much knowledge as you can obtain from trusted online- and offline sources.
