online selling

i have used sites like eBay before to sell some things that i no longer was using, and well, being unemployed and searching i have needed the extra cash. i have a few art pieces that i have finally loosened the heart-strings on and are finally going to throw them out to see and watch for a bite. but whew! talk about fees! i think it’s absolutely ridiculous that not only do i have to consider how much it cost me to make it, the shipping, and the materials, but i also have to consider the amount i have to pay the site to even just put it up plus try to get something out of it for little ol me! it’ll end up costing a liver, kidney, and an arm or two! i’m sorry, i know websites need to make money off of selling stuff, but wow! when you see so many things ‘overly priced’ online, please keep in mind you’re not just paying for the product, and please still buy our stuff! i’m quite scared to jump in here and see if my stuff will sell! cross your fingers all! and find me on etsy! i have art to sell and money to make! happy days to you all!

  1. Hi, Violet,

    Yes, I agree. Etsy is expensive to list and sell on. I avoid it all together and list any unique art items I have on Ebay or Craigslist. I’ve successfully sold some things that way. Even with Ebay’s commission, I still end up with a profit.

    If you’re looking for more ways to make money online with no or low cost to you and without complicated internet marketing plans, I suggest the following: keep your eye open for free stuff sitting on the side of the road or or dirt cheap items at garage sales or thrift stores, look that stuff up on Craigslist, Ebay, or Amazon, get it if it is worth something and in good condition, clean up if necessary, then list it and sell it. Maybe you’re already doing this, but I thought I would throw it out there.

    Good luck!
