eBay As The Ecommerce Platform Of Choice

from the an-eBay-based-career dept

While there have been plenty of stories about people who ended up making money as an “accidental” career on eBay, it’s increasingly common for people to specifically plan out and start eBay-based businesses. People are realizing that eBay is just an e-commerce platform, and are building entire businesses around selling through eBay. Of course, as a few people in the article point out, many people forget that in order to successfully make a career out of selling stuff on eBay, you also need to keep buying stuff that you’ll be able to sell at a higher price. The real trick is finding a regular supplier of goods, and then being able to turn them around on eBay for a profit. While larger companies are now moving into using eBay as a platform, smaller sellers say that the level playing field is nice – and the differentiation that keeps them in business is good personal service.
