And there is so much competition on ebay right now that people are selling stuff for dirt cheap because they have so much to sell and so they can sell it that cheap and still make money.
I tried the ebay moneymaking thing, I hooked up with a dropshipper and all, listed stuff on ebay, let the auctions go where they may and didn't make any money, actually lost money. You really have to know what is hot and what is not, and do a whole lot of research on ebay to find out what is selling and what prices they are selling at. So it's not like it's an easy moneymaking idea either. Plus ebay and paypal take their cuts, so you have to price it high enough to make money after all the ebay and paypal fees, but low enough that you can be competitive and people won't pass up your ad.
But really....so many people are doing it nowadays that it isn't even worth doing anymore.
