Best Way to Make Money on Ebay
Easy Money While Cleaning Your Home!
We all like making a quick buck, but many people do not realize how easy it really can be. Selling certain items on ebay can make anyone a lot of money real fast, but only if you know the market you are selling to. For one thing, there are thousands of items posted on the website, but many sit for months with little to no action. Then there are items that get instant watchers and bids. The best part about these items is the fact that almost all of us have them laying around the house collecting dust.
The first item is an old cell phone. Literally any working cell phone will sell. There are of course the smart phones that can bring in a hundred dollars or more, but even the simple flip phone can make someone fifty bucks or more. These phones can be five or more years old and they will still get buyers. If they are Verizon or AT&T phones they will have a larger group of buyers, but even other company phones can bring in decent money. One shouldn’t worry about missing chargers or battery because many people will still buy the phone and get the parts from another buyer. With such astronomical prices for phones off contract, many people want to buy a cheap phone to hold them over till they can renew their contract. I personally had six phones in my house, which I thought were worthless, until I started to sell. One tip for all new sellers, always keep one back up phone for yourself, just in case your phone kicks the bucket.
Another quick sell item on ebay is old video games. Not all games will sell, but if the game is well known or about a popular movie series you can make some serious cash. Recently I sold two old PC games for over $250. I was surprised as anyone when I had ten watchers and fifteen bids after only two days of an auction. The two games were from 2004 and 2006 and were about the popular book and movie series The Lord of the Rings. I first purchased the games for twenty dollars a couple years after they were released and decided it was time to get rid of them. Though all games do not bring in this much, there are plenty that are high in demand and may even become more valuable with time. Games for old Nintendo, Play Station, Game Boy, or SEGA are always going to be wanted by true fans and soon Xbox games will be even more valuable. If you do a little research, you can easily find out if your games are worth some money and should cash in.
My last suggestion for a new seller on ebay is to post any old collector item you have gotten sick of or have put away in the attic. This may be something that was given to you as a gift or purchased when you were a little younger. If you thought it was a collector item then, most likely someone out there still does and may pay more for it than you actually did. Again, research is key and one simple Google search will give you all you need to know about your item.
Ebay gives thousands the ability to sell their belongings that they may have lost interest in or use for. As you make a little quick cash, you are also bringing great enjoyment to buyers and possibly saving them a lot of money. We all know how cluttered our houses can get, but before you throw away anything, give ebay a try to you may be surprised how much you can make!
