The 11 Best Goodwill eBay Stores So You Can Thrift From Home

Did you know that Goodwill sells on eBay? Of course you did, that’s why you’re here. It’s common knowledge that people buy items from thrift stores and resell them on eBay. In fact, we have been doing so for more than 5 years and had over a quarter of a million dollars in “side-hustle” sales during that time. However, if you want the best deals, you should always go to the source (meaning not buying from resellers). Couple that with the fact that tons of people are still at home because of the pandemic and most people have a shopping itch that they’re unable to scratch. Well, luckily for you, if you’re the thrift-store-loving-type you can still get your fix via Goodwill’s eBay stores! How Goodwill eBay Stores Function Each area of Goodwills operates independently and has a separate name. For example, the Goodwills in my area are actually “Easterseals-Goodwill Northern Rocky Mountain Inc“. Operating …

10 Ways To Get Free (Or Cheap) Shipping Supplies for eBay

I hate shipping my eBay sales. I mean, it’s a problem I’m grateful to have, but when I sit down to send out orders I feel like those things are already sold. The mission is done and I need to find more things to sell. So what would add insult to injury when it comes to shipping eBay orders? Spending too much money on shipping and shipping supplies. When I first started keeping books for my eBay sales I was astounded at the amount of money I was spending on shipping. It amounted to thousands of dollars per month. Since I was maxed on on the number of items I could list per day I figured that the best way to increase my profits was to decrease my expenses, and that started with my shipping situation. Getting eBay supplies for free or really cheap is becoming more and more necessary if you want to stay …

21 eBay Selling Tips To Maximize Your Profits (and sanity)

When I first started selling on eBay I was obsessed with reading tips from other eBay sellers. I followed everyone on Instagram, read business blogs, and watched YouTube videos. While I definitely had some success, it wasn’t long before I realized that everyone was just recycling the same few eBay selling tips into new articles. To make matters worse, they were all super basic tips that anyone with a brain had already figured out. This meant that I wasted a ton of time and money floundering around and trying different things as I struggled to build my reselling business past the $10,000/month mark. Now that I’m looking back, I’m hoping that some of my tips for selling on eBay will be things that you haven’t thought of that will ease your own journey. It seems incredible that in 7 years of selling on eBay and almost 5 years of blogging about it I’ve never written …

Can You Still Make Money Dropshipping On eBay In 2021?

Dropshipping on eBay sounds like a passive income dream. You don’t touch the products, it requires minimal investment, and you just take your cut off the top when something sells. At least in theory. Ten years ago dropshipping on eBay was as easy as copy-pasting a description and uploading some pictures. People made millions dropshipping. I hate to say it up front in this article, but those days are past. Now, that’s not to say that dropshipping on eBay is dead in 2021. But the game has changed. The massive influx of people looking to “get rich on the internet” has results in two things that have wrecked the dropshipping game: Competition has driven profit margins into the ground The number of sellers has results in the creation of dozens of eBay dropshipping tools, lowering the barrier of entry into the business Between those two things, long-time dropshippers have seen their sales and profit margins …

What’s The Trick To Selling on Mercari? It’s so simple…

Three years ago we had huge plans for the coming year on eBay. We had started selling thrifted stuff on eBay full-time just a couple of months before and had plans to double our sales in the next 12 months. This meant getting our monthly sales up to around the $15,000 mark which we knew would be tough, but possible. When I woke up on December 31st I had an email from eBay informing me of a week-long suspension on our account. Apparently, we could still “ship things and perform administrative tasks” but we would be unable to list new products or edit current listings for the next week. Not how you want to start off the new year. I’ll be honest, that email rocked us pretty hard. My wife and I wanted to “eventually diversify” and try other platforms but we hadn’t realized how truly vulnerable we were. The suspension was for an authentic …

My Experience on eBay Managed Payments: Did I get scammed?

If you want to initiate a monstrous crap-storm, just mention eBay’s new Managed Payments System on the eBay Community or any social media outlet. I can guarantee that you’ll get tons of crusty old eBayer’s claiming that it’s the worst mistake that money-grabbing-eBay has ever made and that they’re boycotting the platform. *In fact, since publishing this post we’ve gotten several emails per week saying that we are idiots that don’t know anything about business and we’re probably eBay pawns* So it is true? Is eBay Managed Payments a money-grabbing effort from the massive corporation that hundreds of thousands of people rely on to put food on the table? Maybe. But now that I’ve actually been on the managed payments system for a while I wanted to write this post to address some concerns, answer some questions and, hopefully, give you a bit of comfort. After all, an objective review of eBay’s managed payments system …

The 31 Best Things to Sell on eBay for Profit

In the past year, thousands and thousands of people have discovered that selling on eBay is not only the easiest way to make a quick buck, but it can also be a full-time business that pays the bills when things get tough. However, with the influx of sellers has come a huge increase in competition. It used to be that you could go to a thrift store or yard sale and only buy the cream of the crop. Now, many sellers are left buying worse and worse inventory to sell. In the past 30 days, however, our sales are up almost 30%, we never leave a thrift store empty handed, and we’re focused on doing $15-20k/month in sales for the rest of the year. How do we do it? Simple. By always expanding our knowledge and looking up every single thing we find to sell if it’s good to sell on eBay. Knowing what to …

How To Sell Used Shoes On eBay (Plus 30 Brands To Resell)

It has been a longstanding goal of mine to go an entire summer without wearing shoes.  Inside?  No shoes.  Outside?  No shoes.  Church?  No shoes.  Airport?  No shoes…and probably a visit to a security room.  Why this idea has always fascinated me, I don’t know… but it does seem to be at odds with my fascination (not weird, right? haha) for selling used shoes on eBay. If you are a footwear guy or gal, eBay is your playground.  There are currently 440,393 pairs of shoes on eBay in my size alone!  Used shoes, new shoes, rare shoes, shoes for 50%+ off retail – you name it, and you can find it.  And anywhere that there is a shopping bonanza for buyers, you can bet that there is a huge opportunity for sellers as well.  In the past 90 days, we have sold almost $5,000 worth of shoes (80% of them used) on eBay. We get most of …

How to Sell Your Empty iPhone Box for Quick Cash on eBay

During the golden days of eBay, my wife and I would always upgrade our phones for free. We would find a killer deal on a new iPhone and then resell our old one. We obviously didn’t get the same amount for our old one that we paid for a new phone but we also had a trick or two up our sleeves which leveled the playing fields. First off, we took better pictures and wrote better descriptions than other sellers. That always ensured we got top dollar for any Apple product we sold on eBay. The other trick? To sell our empty iPhone box on eBay as well. Selling empty boxes for Apple products (or any other bit of tech) is not a new thing. In fact, we included empty cell boxes in our article about 8 Things To Sell Rather Than Throw Away almost 5 years ago. However, the market has changed a bit …
