There are quite a few items for sale on eBay!, uBid.com, Bidz.com and so on that you can buy to resell on eBay! or other auction sites and make a good profit.
There are so many things that sell for as little as 99c that you can go on to sell for up to $20. It might not sound like a lot of money but if you get lets say 20 items and sell them for $15-20 a piece you will make a decent amount of money. You would have to look around and do a bit of homework yourself to find items that you could resell.
I have come across several items that I could have possibly resold for a good profit but due to my geographical location I cannot purchase a lot of these things. I do however buy a few things now and then from New Zealand based auctions sites and sell them on eBay! at a profit.
People may not be sure whether or not they are making a profit or not on eBay!
I was the same when I first started selling items. I came across this eBay Profit Calculator which made it even easier for me to calculate what kind of a profit I was making. There are a few expenses associated with selling items online which may be overlooked. These may include seller fees, PayPal fees, shipping to your customer and shipping supplies. It all adds up and it will pay to do a bit of homework before you get into it.
