A lot of people wonder what the realistic income possibilities are for opening an eBay business. Like with any business, the income possibilities are only limited by the amount of work you’re willing to put into your business.
It’s not uncommon for people to make thousands of dollars a month on eBay. If you don’t believe me, then go on eBay and look for people with a PowerSeller icon next to their names. To be a PowerSeller, on any level, you have to make at least $1,000 a month. This alone should tell you that it is possible.
A lot of PowerSellers started at the same place that you are. At one point they didn’t know how eBay worked. They didn’t have an account set up or hadn’t made a single sale. The point is that on eBay everyone starts from scratch.
Quite a few people make a full time income selling on eBay. Some of these people didn’t even create an account with the intentions to make it a business. They simply listed a few items, saw the money rolling in, and kept listing.
eBay has a low overhead expense, so most of what rolls in after the cost of inventory is pretty much pure profit. You don’t have to pay rent or utilities like you would for a traditional brick and mortar store. Nor do you have to pay employees wages to help run your business. In fact, there are multi-million dollar companies that make less profit than some PowerSellers do.
Many people use eBay as a second income. It’s fairly easy to do as long as you can find some time to pack and ship orders during the week. Running an eBay business doesn’t take much effort. There are few other things that you could do with your spare time that would make you as much money as running a part time eBay business.
One great thing about selling on eBay is that anyone can do it. It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, and it doesn’t matter where you live either. As long as you have an internet connection and postal pick up, you can be in business. There’s no job interview or driving involved. If you can use the internet, you can run an eBay business.
The only thing keeping you from earning an unlimited income potential is yourself. Take the time to learn how to use eBay and you could be on your way to self employment, and possibly a large fortune, in no time.
