Hello, I am new at this, so I wanted to write and say hi. I don't have to high of goals at the moment, I would like to net $500 a month. i do not think that is unrealistic, or maybe it is. I am currently in the researching stage. I will be focusing on EBay for the time, and expand from there. Any tips on where to expand to after EBay, or where to start instead of EBay are welcome. For that matter, any tips that will help are welcome.
Michael

Michael,

welcome to the forum! I am offering a free menotring program if your interested - NO Catches!

After Ebay, why not go to Free classified ads? This way you get high traffic without the costs or final value fees of Ebay. I know having spent over

If your spending 3000 pounds a month on eBay then you should be making a lot of money.

I wish I was spending 3000 pounds a month in eBay fees.

I'm in the same boat and am looking to making money with eBay. I am starting from nothing, so am interested in drop shipping my products.

Research here and other forums. Research eBay to see what is selling. Look around you. You are pretty close US style to the orient.

There are sellers from Asia in CA.

Search a little online.

Test out your dropshippers.

Then start listing slowly. If you run across a niche or a product line that is selling lights out try to jump on quick knowing it wont last.

Continue to look for a product/s line you can sell steady either through DS or DP(direct purchase)

I have done hours of research and have come up with some good suppliers but I wont reveal them as they have taken me time and energy.

Remember, you wont get peoples direct contacts as they are kept under the vest.

Check with local businesses, this is how I came up with a steady supply of stuff to sell.

There are inline places to get product but you have to look for them and continually research eBay to see if those items will net a product.

You can find some of them here.

Find a niche. Find an area of interest or expertise.

Just be carefull when dropshipping. Choose a good payment processing service. Do not use paypal as they will freeze your account and expect you to provide tracking numbers for everything you sold. And no they will not care if you are a dropship seller.
