The Easiest Way to Start Selling Online
 Sell on the Internet today!
There are many ways to make money on the Internet, but in general, it works the same as making money off line. You can sell your labor or you can sell a product. If you sell a product, you can sell your own product or another company's product. The quickest way to get yourself in business online is to sell your unwanted items. In the past this was often through eBay, but today the listing and selling fees are so high, that if you don't sell items with a high dollar value, you will not make any money. There is some potential that exists in making money on eBay, but for beginners, I would suggest staying clear.

If you are just starting out, you need to get some experience doing business online, but without spending any of your own money. Investing only your time in learning the ropes of the business. For this reason it is best to start with the items that you own and no longer want. You can do some research to find out if the items have any value. A good place to do that is with Google search under shopping. Simply type in the name of the item in search and click on the word shopping at the top of the screen. You will see what is being sold on the Internet.

Once you have decided on a few items to sell, then you have to decide on where to sell them. There are many sites that allow you to list items for sale free of charge and only take a commission if something is sold. You should focus only on those sites which have good traffic, a good reputation, and have been in business for a while. I would only look at the following sites: eCrater, Bonanza, and eBid.

All of these sites allow you to open your own store and list items for sale. In addition, eBid allows auctions. But I recommend only using the store feature in the beginning.

Ecrater does not charge to list, not do they charge a commission on a sale. They make their money from advertising. Ecrater can be found at ecrater.com 

Bonanza charges nothing to list but does charge a small fee when you sell something. They can be found at bonanza.com 

eBid is the closest thing to an ebay type site as you can get, but I have only sold through a store there and cannot vouch for how productive their auctions are. Again, I would recommend starting with a store format. ebid has sites throughout the world. eBid can be found at ebid.net 

Start slow and learn about how to list, learn about payment methods, and in general how to conduct business on the Internet. Remember you have to walk before you run.
