Stay at Home And Still Make Money – Sell Thrift Store Clothing On Ebay

on June 3, 2011

There are many women (and men) who want to stay at home with the kids but need a way to make money. The SAHM and WAHM are desperate to find a work at home opportunity but many fall prey to schemes that take their hard earned money at a time they can least afford to lose it. They are sick of rip offs and things that don’t work. That is why eBay has become so huge. There are presently over 700,000 who make a living from selling on eBay.

They sell every possible thing you can imagine. They have small little niches that they fill and make anywhere from a few hundred dollars a month to over $150,000 a month as a Platinum level seller. As a stay at home mom, you too can learn to sell on eBay from your home.

eBay allows you the freedom of selling from your own home, when you have the time on your schedule. Whether you have a job already or even two or more jobs to make ends meet, you can start your own little eBay business and is such a great fit for the SAHM or WAHM. eBay’s reach is global. You can literally start your own global business.

Thrift stores are filled with items that are in demand on eBay. This means that you can find stock for your eBay business as close as your local thrift store. Don’t fall for drop ship or wholesale list scams. Sell something real that people want to buy. Sell brand name used clothing. Companies spend millions of dollars building up their brand name. You can take advantage of this by looking for and finding those items in your local thrift stores. The key however is knowing what people want. Knowing what brands, items and sizes are all important factors in what sells on eBay.

The way you do this is by knowing before you ever buy anything is what is in demand on eBay. You have to research eBay first by doing completed item searches to find what people are willing to bid like crazy for. This is a key secret to eBay.

You make money by what you know. Knowledge. That is how you make money on eBay. And the way you get that knowledge is by study and research.

Study what you know. If you have kids, you know how fast they outgrow clothing and need more. As a woman, you know womens fashion and sizes. If you have a boyfriend or husband that you buy clothing for you know something about mens sizes. Use what you know and build on that. Research which name brands sell. Spend time doing this and you will be prepared when you go into the thrift stores. If not, you will just buy and sell by trial and error and end up spending more than you make and quickly be back where you started. Study closed auctions and what brand names people want and you will have a profitable business you can run from your home.
