Make extra money on Ebay

Awhile back I quit selling on Ebay and closed my store out because it just wasn't worth the time and hassle involved. Even though my store is closed, I have been thinking about getting rid of my italian charm inventory in bits and pieces rather than selling it in one bulk lot. One of the options that I am considering is using a company called isold it. Studies show that the average household has over $2,200 worth of items that are sellable and many homes have much more! I would imagine that I have over $4000 in inventory that I need to get rid of and I can't think of a better way to do it.

I have tried for months to sell my store inventory on Craigs List with only one good lead. The other option would be a garage sale, but the online marketplace dwarfs America's front yards as the best sales location. Ebay reaches millions of people, but you need a little experience in crafting an auction. If you are out of work and are looking for a great way to make some easy money this just might be it.

iSold It is a full service Ebay drop off stores and is available in many locations. Just take your items to the local iSold It store and drop off the items. They take care of it all - taking pics of the item, creating the auction, answering questions, collecting the money, and shipping the product to the winning bidder for a portion of the selling price. They take between 30% -40% commission but so what. You can continue looking for work while they do all the work. For me this would be perfect because I just don't have the time to deal with everything involved in selling my items.

When I was selling on Ebay, I met people who made a living buying items at yard sales or auctions only to turn around and sell them on Ebay.

Did you know that fifteen thousand customers having been paid more than $2 million during the last three years through sales on eBay and other electronic sites? Amazing isn't it?

Try Use.com They have thousands of templates. It's free, and you can post up to 100 full size images with no size or bandwidth restriction.

Works pretty good if you want to do things on the fly without knowing any HTML. Best thing is that you can save and reuse templates later on and their templates are both eBay and Craigslist compatible.

Worked for me and my images are not limited to what eBay or Craigslist offers plus I don't have to pay extra. Let me know what you think.
