I think eBay is a great place to sell huge items suich as TVs, Computer Parts, Sofas e.t.c. You can make quite a lot from that and people that sell electricals on there must make a huge profit. Did you read in The Sun and Magazines such as Reveal last year about the couple that got married via eBay? (met on eBay) - We worked for my mum at her company and he sold loads on there. Was making alot of money apparantely. The only thing I hate about eBay when selling smaller items is the insertion fee and final evaluation fee. I know its not a lot but if your not going to make a huge profit on the item, then its not worth it!
I have 3 accounts on ebay now. one for the The local cats protection and made over Â£3000 net profiut for them. I have another for personal use and another for my avon. Its great. I have been ebaying for 5 years now.
