There are so many reasons to sell on ebay. Some are purely business reasons as it gives a seller a worldwide audience at a very low cost. No overhead costs, except a small commission paid to the company. It really is a fantastic place to sell, whatever it is that you are selling. A lot of sellers are already large businesses that use Ebay as another venue to sell on.
I’ve been buying on ebay since May of 2000. But don’t recall exactly when I started selling, but this is my third year. I primarily sell to get some extra income for paying off our debts (which we should be done with next year, except for my mortgage). Will I continue to sell on Ebay once we are out of debt? You bet. I am seriously thinking of going full time with ebay. We’ll be paying off our house and saving money with any income from Ebay. Plus, it’s seriously fun. I really enoy it!
I know some people who sell on ebay to save up money for a really nice vacation. Others who sell on ebay to feed their shopping addictions without feeling guilty of using family money. Others, like Jay and Ryanne from Scavenger Life, do it so that they own their life and their time (my goal).
So I really want to hear YOUR story. Tell us why you sell on Ebay!!
