    Does anyone know or have you sold items on Amazon?

    I have a lot of books on the craft of writing and several best sellers that are just kind of sitting here and I thought this might be a good way to get them gone plus make a little pocket change to boot.

      i got started selling on amazon via the vendio program which allowed me to integrate my ebay and amazon inventory through one dashboard … ay-sellers

      in most cases the ebay profit margin is better, if your a small seller

    I havent really sold anything on there before, i have on, but just enquire about selling the products, if its anything like it will just be a simple process requiring you to start up an account, how much you want to charge etc

    Lakes: it was really easy to set up the merchant account. I know what you mean though about having other things to do. This was just one of the many I HAD to get done. LOL

    Sun: I figure I might list them on eBay if they don't go on Amazon but trying there first as I had a bad experience with a blanket I sold on eBay.

      check out vendio than, you set up an item in your inventory, than with a click you cn send it off to amazon or ebay and it list automatically in your own web store.

      Amazon has a much better feedback system when you are doing everything right as a seller

      You can also list books on (ebay company) its super easy and rather popular for book buyers

      When you do list via whatever service, remember to write a hub that showcases ONLY your items!

    OOOh didn't know about will have to check that one out. I am an avid reader with most of my books coming thru my mom who reads and passes on then I am left with the book and usually sell them at a severe discount in my yard sale.

    I made the decision after taking a huge loss the last yard sale to check some of these sites for a better way.

    I've been selling books on Amazon for the last 2 years.  It's easy to set up your merchant account and then click on "Sell Your Stuff" on the right side of the home page when you want to list something. 

    It is easier than ebay because you don't have to take a picture of your book as long as Amazon is still currently selling it and you can get more money for your books there than at ebay.

    I am just about ready to start selling a huge pile of books again to pare down the clutter.  Good luck and let me know if you need help.

    Selling on Amazon is easy. I've done it for years and over that time have probably made several hundred dollars. Most of what I sold were textbooks, or used homeschooling curricula, but occasionally I have scored at a yardsale and have purchased books for cents that I sold for dollars. If you have a cell phone that goes on the Internet so that you can check the prices before buying, yard sales can be a great source of inventory.

    Amazon gives you a shipping allowance per book sold, so if the book isn't too heavy, you can technically make money on a book that you sell for only a penny! Be sure to calculate the cost of your gas to the post office!
