Profitable Internet Income:Selling Books with Amazon
Selling Books Online
I have found a way to earn a living online.
I started trying to make money off the internet about five years ago.
I started out by getting suckered into the "get rich quick" schemes, and paying the $39.95 up front fees that went along with them, with absolutely no results..... of course!
It was on a Saturday about three years ago that I was having a garage sale. I had a pile of books for sale. A fellow came up and said, " You know, you ought to list that pile of books for sale on the internet at Amazon.com". I thanked him for his advice, and he went on his way.
About six months later, I came across a huge pile of books sitting on the side of the road, and remembered the guy's advice. I took the books, cleaned them up nicely and sat down at my computer. I was still quite skeptical, what with all the Kindle options, I figured that books were becoming extinct.
Wow, was I as wrong as I could be.... So listen up, cause this is the part that gets important.
I already had an Amazon sellers account as a shopper, so I only had to click on a button to instantly become a seller. 'Selling on Amazon' is a program that enables people to sell their products and inventory on Amazon.
Now, I chose to list books, but that's not what I was limited to selling. I was able to sign up to sell items in the following categories: Books, CD and Vinyl, DVD, Video/VHS, Baby, Beauty, Camera & Photo, Electronics, Grocery & Gourmet Food, Health & Personal Care, Home & Garden, Musical Instruments, Office Products, Personal Computers, Software, Sports & Outdoors, Toys & Games, Tools & Hardware, Video Games and Wireless Antennas & Boosters!
I signed up in November 2010, right before the Christmas Holidays. I could not believe my eyes! Within ONE WEEK I made over $1000 in sales! I printed the postage directly off the Amazon website, then packaged the books and dropped them off at the post office. It was that simple.
Some of my books for sale.
How I Got Paid:
Amazon Services first settled my account 21 days after I registered with Seller Central. Subsequently, the settlement process repeats every 7 days. Each automatic weekly disbursement reflects the net proceeds for orders I confirmed as shipped between 14 and 21 days prior to the disbursement date. Selling on Amazon worked for me and still does. It's easy, efficient, and lucrative.
