First of all, Amazon Marketplace. Marketplace offers you an opportunity to sell products (not just books but a whole range of things) on the exact same page on Amazon’s website where Amazon sell the product themselves. So you get to compete with them head-on, and even get to compete with them on price. Selling prices are fixed – Marketplace isn’t an auction. You can list an unlimited number of items for free but what they call a referral fee is charged on each sale. Marketplace is for both new and used products.
An analogy may reveal the answer. Stephen Covey uses this story to make a very important point: “Suppose you were to come upon someone in the woods working feverishly to saw down a tree.
In an earlier scenario, buyers also came in, as home loans were available and interest rates were down. Now with the corporates cutting jobs and loans not easily available, buyers need help. Having a reasonable cost-based price would enable the purchaser to buy. There is always a resistance to change but the builders who respond to the call first will selling on Amazon property faster. The impact on the market would be such that the other builders will follow suit.
Some sellers see this as a hassle; however, going worldwide can be a great benefit! It opens you up to millions of prospective buyers and can lead to great eBay seller success.
Also, banks today are offering loans to the extent of 65 to 70 % of the value of the property. This means the flat purchaser has to raise the remaining amount on his own. With jobs not secure and salaries being reduced, the question is how to raise more money. There is a demand for flats, but fence-sitters will enter the market if the developers reduce prices.
Even if you are working around the clock, if your salesmen don’t see that you are working harder than any of them they will think you are just lazy and answer by being lazy themselves.
While starting an eBay business, you will need to first identify if the product chosen by you is one of the hottest selling products or not. Initially, you can start with a product that sells fast but doesn’t offer too much profit. So what? Even if the profit margin is lower, you are still getting the opportunity to establish your business on eBay. The fact of the matter is that if you are able to sell products then you will have repeat clients and new clients as well.
Don’t let these ideas be limiting, but rather the start of more inspirations for making quick and easy money starting today. There are literally thousands of things and services people will pay for. The trick is to be that someone offering your service before they realize they need it!
