    Has anyone had any success selling on ebay?

    I have heard of people who make money on the side on ebay or become power sellers. I was wondering if any has had any experience with this. I have just listed some items and want to get into it more.

    it's become harder for small sellers to succeed on ebay over the years, but it's still possible

    i'd be happy to answer an additional questions you might have

    I have been selling on eBay since 2005. I have been down scaling my sales activity, but I still sell enough to maintain a Bronze level power seller status. Because of ebay's service fees there is other sites that I prefer over ebay, but unfortunately you are not going to have the same volume of sales with those sites (even though I have a couple of drop ship products which sell well on Amazon.com).

    I never made a living exclusively on eBay,  but I do make a bit of a side income. I recommend you start with a few items (maybe used items you are looking to make a little extra cash from), build up your feedback, and see how it goes from there.

    I've written quite a lot of hubs on eBay Emma. You can make money eBay and there are many ways of doing this. Pre 2008 there was a way to make thousands of dollars fast. Dropshipping is a good way to start and cut your teeth with but it does have it's limits.

    I have sold on eBay for many years off and on. Within the last 6 months, I have gotten more into it. I actually want to a Goodwill and purchased some items, then sold them online. I was shocked to see I doubled my money. It may not sound like much but how often do you double your money with investments? I wrote a short article on my hubpages about selling items from Goodwill if you care to check it out. I made in a short month in a half, over $400. The money is there to be made but you need to watch the fees. eBay is forever changing and growing, so you never know how easy selling on there will be. I know they have made it harder recently for sellers but I hope they know what they are doing. I have personally never been a Power Seller or anywhere close, just a person that enjoys selling as a hobby.

    I have been successfully selling on ebay for over 10 years.  It is part time for me.   The key I have found to success is to identify your market and sell to it.   Here are some examples I of successfull ebayers, I follow and learn from:  chmckeen sells autographs, very successful.  golfshed with a  Score Of 9121 sells golf collectibles, again very successful.   kathysphotos 8478 sells photos, another successful individual. artmedia2k7  705 is relatively new to Ebay selling his artwork ACEO's, outstanding artist who has  a nice following who snap up his artwork as soon as he lists it.   These are all individuals who have a passion, learned all they can about it, stay true to their goal of providing the product they have chosen to offer customers and set a price generating interest and purchases.   Study these and the power sellers you find.   Then determine your passion, identify a product and begin selling and growing your business.  What I sell are garage sale items I find undervalued in the marketplace of a garage sale.   It has been my passion for over 10 years and what I enjoy.  Good luck.
