How to make money online with Ebay

One of the greatest and simplest ways to make money online is to set up a drop shipping account on Ebay. The most difficult aspect of dropshipping is actually just learning the ropes and getting started.

If you don't know what drop shipping is, it is the process of acquiring items at a wholesale price, selling the item and then having a third party take care of the shipping. You never actually see or handle the product. Sounds pretty good, doesn't it?

So how is it done? Here's a little primer to help you get started.

Once you have Setup your operation, you'll need to be dilligent about updating your store on ebay and maintaining a positive feedback record. None of this is rocket science though, so don't get overly worried. You can do a simple google search to find dropshipping services that you can team up with. Try to stick with things that are essentials rather than knick knacks or techno-gadgets. Things like sleeping bags, backpacks and tents seem to do well. Remember, there are no guarantees that what you're trying to sell will make an abundant turnaround, but with some careful selections it is possible to earn some significant income. May the force be with you!
