Hi, I am new to this but i want to make money by working from home, selling stuff maybe on eBay etc, and i was wondering whether anyone could helpme get started with making profits. I am not really sure what I need to buy that is going to be good, and most sites for wholesalers that I look on, well I am trying to do the math, and make sure i am going to be making a profit given the shipping etc. I am interested in dropshipping too, but I am not sure. I joined salehoo, but I am still finding it difficult. Anyone with any advice please could you help????????

Thanks :D

Do some research on what is selling well on places like eBay and just keep pricing items up and if you can earn money on each one then sell them. All about getting cheap prices and research. All i can say really i cant tell you what to sell etc you have to do some work for yourself. :)

Thanks, Jonny.

Ditto to what the previous poster said.

You really have to sit and work stuff out, prices, suppliers etc... I tell you I made some stupid mistakes when I started a year ago, lost money, made some money and I still make daft purchases (not so many now, thank God) that I really don't have a hope in hell of selling!

I tell you, I still have 2 pairs of designer shoes that I bought at Xmas on whim and I don't have a clue how or where to sell them on...

Good luck!

PS, one tip, read forums like these and the eBay forums. I learnt stacks about how to spot scams & ripoffs and just how to do things, like the best times to list!

Thank you both so much for the help, what you have said has proved very helpful especially the eBay forums etc. One last thing, buying electrical goods from overseas, dont they have different power supplies than here in UK?
