Selling on Ebay with no Investment

Updated on July 13, 2016

Free Stuff to sell on Ebay

I recently tried to make the biggest list of items that you can sell on Ebay with zero investment involved. What I came up with I am exited to share and this list will continue to grow. Many of these things are all over, you just never thought that you can sell it. Other things you can find outside or in the garbage.

#1 Selling coupons on Ebay

The selling of manufacturer's coupons on Ebay is allowed as long as it does not surpass $100 or the limit of 25 coupon listings per month.

For more information about selling coupons on Ebay please refer to the Ebay Manufacturer's coupon policy.

Also Coke reward points are being used for coupons which entitle you to free Coke products. For the most part the coupons for free 20 oz sodas are selling fast but there is additional merchandise that I have seen sell.

Box tops for education on Ebay

#3 Selling junk drawers on Ebay

If you didn't know, selling a junk drawer on Ebay is fun. Many people do this with all types of items. Best thing is that it is minimal work. Simply take a picture of everything that was in the drawer in whole. Take good picture sand at-least twelve photos. Also detail the drawer as much as possible.

Coke Rewards

If you haven't noticed, there's a code beneath the caps of Coka-Cola products. Sprite, Coke, Dasani, Power-Ade, etc... are all coke products and there's more. They have codes with are 3three points apiece. If you go to Coke you can enter these codes in and redeem them for cool stuff and gift cards. You can then sell those items on Ebay which are not at all hard to sell as they are always popular items and are ever changing. You can also get drinks for free but I rather get the voucher then sell the voucher on Ebay. All this is perfectly within the Ebay guidelines but you can not sell the coded caps themselves. Also there are more points in the cases of Coca-Cola products. Each ten to twelve pack has ten to twelve points a piece.

      Thanks, Grinc, these are easy ideas -- I never knew people were actually paying money for these things! I am always looking for a way to make an extra buck or two. These ideas might be fun to get my kids started on a money-making venture since they've been sitting around on the computer all summer! Voted up and useful.
