Well, it is a great way to make money, or just to bring in a little extra cash and clean your house out of clutter!

Selling For Others On Ebay

I just started selling for someone else on eBay. I have been resistant to doing this because I didn't want the hassle. People in my new community had asked me to do this for them but when I researched it, it seemed like there could be a LOT of complications.

Then I met a woman who was going through a divorce and downsizing. She had a bunch of brand name items that were going to be donated to Salvation Army, but she really needed the money and asked me to sell it for her. I originally offered to teach her how to sell but she's a single mom and works full time and is just overwhelmed and said I could take the items and sell them for her or she was donating them. Once I looked at her items, I couldn't say no. Especially when I told her the only way I could do it is to split it 50/50 with her after the fees from Paypal and eBay are taken out and she didn't bat an eyelash and said that would be fine.

I took a couple of garbage bags of items home with me. After washing the clothing, I have begun to list the items which includes clothing, shoes and brand new with tags cycling apparel. In less than 1 week 2 of the new bike apparel pieces have sold. The total, before fees from eBay and Paypal, is up to $89. I am thrilled and I think she will be happy too. I still have more to go. If this works out, I may do it for others. Have you ever sold items on eBay for other people?
