Okay, well, I don't think I've posted on here since I first joined. Anyway, since I joined, I found one reliable website in the directory that I've used to try to make a little bit of money. I bought two cases which contain 6 products for, if I remember correctly, almost $44 a case and on eBay I've been able to sell one of those products for $20-25 a piece. Unfortunately, they are now sold out of the item and won't get anymore in but due to my procrastination, I still have a box of them left :p

I'm starting to get back into selling online again due to 'Black Friday' approaching and my love for buying shiny, expensive toys. My plan is to unload my product I have now, as well as sell some things around the house. Once I reach enough money in the Paypal account, I plan to buy one of Jimmy's sample packs and see how it goes. Until then, I just had a couple questions.

1. I've been thinking about selling ebooks on eBay. Where would I get some ebooks that I would legally be able to resell?

2. I understand they have a 'no digital delivery' policy now. After I have aquired and sold one of these ebooks, do I just burn it onto a blank CD and ship it? Should I buy some CD label paper to put on the CDs? Do they have special envelopes for just mailing a disk?

Any help is appreciated and if anyone has any experience selling ebooks, I'd appreciate your wisdom on the subject. Thank you.

Yes you are correct that eBay has now changed it where you have to physically deliver digital products such as ebooks. How you do this is totally up to you. You can simply copy them to a disc and send them out or you can make them look more professional with a nice label and cover. There are even companies that will create the disc and ship them for you. You can go to a office store and find everything you need to ship these yourself if that is the route you choose. I have a ton of ebooks on my site that are free if interested. Just see my sig. at the bottom. It looks like some of the retailers are getting a jump on Black Friday this year with the anticipation of bad holiday sales. Wal-Mart is going to have Compaq laptops for $298 Sunday!!

Thank you. I appreciate your help. I will probably make a trip to the store as I need to buy some shipping materials and might as well go ahead and buy some blank CDs. I'll be sure to check out your website. Regarding that, all I have to do is download the ebooks and I have full resale rights, correct?

And don't tell me about $300 laptops! That's probably at the top of my list :P Or a new computer in general, seeing as my PC died recently and my laptop needs some work done on the AC plug. Yikes.

I've also discovered a website where you can get paid for writing articles, essentially blog entries, it seems, where you get like $1.50 every thousand views or something... I'm still looking into it but apparently it's legit. Considering I'm an avid card player, I have plenty of things I could write about.
