Paypal Alternative For Ebay Sellers And Buyers

Paypal for years has been the dominant player for collecting payment online for ebay sellers. Many ebay sellers have been frustrated with the policies of Paypal since they were bought by Ebay. Now there is a new up and coming company called Revolution Money Exchanger. Not only does it offer similar services to buyers and sellers as Paypal, but there is a free $10.00 added to your account when you sign-up. I expect Revolution Money Exchanger to become just as popular as Paypal in next year. Revolution Money Exchanger is getting a lot of exposure through the Yahoo Fantasy Fooball leagues. Yahoo is giving away free add ons to their fantasy football leagues when you sign up for Revolution Money Exchanger from their site. Of course Yahoo is taking advantage of the referral fees you get from Revolution Money Exchanger to give away these services but who could blame them. In addition to being an alternative to Paypal for online shopping you will also receive an ATM card to use just like Paypal. Revolution Money Exchanger allows the emailing of money between users as well as other buyer and sellers tools. I for one have experienced the pains of having a Paypal account put on hold while they sort out security issues and was well pleased when I got my Revolution Exchanger Account. The best part about Revolution Money Exchang is that there are NO FEES unlike Paypal. Much like Paypal did when they first started Revolution Money Exchanger is offering referral bonuses in addition to the free $10.00 you get when you sign up. Its a good Paypal alternative program well worth looking into if your an Ebay buyer or seller in my opinion.

Ebay Wants Quality Not Just Quantity From Affiliates

Ebay announced changes to its affiliate program as of Aug 1st. Ebay has decided to change the way it pays its affiliates for new user signups. Previously all new users that placed a bid through an affiliates link payed the affiliate $25.00. As of Aug 1st that will be changing depending on the quality of the user you send to Ebay. Ebay will base the payout for new users on how they expect the quality of that user to be in the future. The payout will give the affiliate anywhere from $1-50.00 for new users. The more active and valuable the new user is that the affiliate send to ebay the movr you will receive. This new payout structure will be for all new affiliates starting after Aug 1st. Those that have been affiliates prior to Aug 1 will continue on current payout for a few month to evaluate their traffic. Ebay's goal is to reward affiliates that send quality lifetime users to ebay instead of one shot wonders. This could impact your Ebay income drastically so please take the time to see how these changes will be impacting you. If you would like more information on the ebay affiliate program and how it can help you earn extra income you can find more details here.

You Need Thick Skin To Make Extra Income Online

Making extra income online can be a great source of some mad money. I started creating blogs solely with the intention on making money much like I had selling garage sale finds on eBay and other online auctions over the years. One thing I have learned for certain is that you better have thick skin. The online world of making extra income is a pretty cutthroat business. Unlike brick and mortar businesses where you meet face to face or speak regularly over the phone with people, when blogging you are somewhat limited in your normal contact with others. During the last few months of experimenting with making extra income online I have met some really great people, at least I think they are great people since I don’t really know them. I guess that is speculation.

Through the course of my making extra income online adventures, I have happened across several contests that I have tried to participate in for the learning experience. Probably the most important thing I have learned is that if you want to make friends online blogging for extra income isn't for you. Now this isn’t to say that you wont make friends at the same time your making extra income, but the chances are your going to piss off more people and make enemies more often than not. I say this out of experience as a newcomer to the arena of blogging for extra income. As a newcomer you are going to post a comment, write a post, leave a link or ask a stupid question that is going to rub someone the wrong way. Heck you might even misinterpret someone else’s comments and get upset yourself.

What you need to understand is that when you enter the world of making extra income online you are becoming a competitor to someone who's entire lively hood may very well come from online resources. Those of us that enter this realm of making extra income online part-time and not necessarily a full time income need to be very mindful of this, especially when you first start out. Think twice about the comments you leave, the posts you make and the manner in which you get links. Unlike the real world most of the people reading your comments or post don't know or understand your humor, come from a different background, or speak a different language. While I'm not one to be overly politically correct, I have discovered, while making extra income online, people that don't know you take your words very literal and often times personal. The real business world can be just as cutthroat as the make extra income online world but the people you deal with have the advantage of seeing your facial expressions and watching your body language to fully understand the point of your conversation.

What in the world does this post have to do with making extra income online? Everything, If you don’t have thick skin, cant take criticism, and can't look at making money online as a business instead of a social event you will fail miserably. You need to be able to take a little abuse when you first start out until you find out exactly who might be an asset to your make extra income online venture in the future. The last thing you want to do is make enemies or lose a valuable resources for advice by leaving a post or comment without fully understanding the impact it might have on someone. Now quit reading this and go make some extra income.

Make More Money Buying At Garage Sales

Are you a person that frequents garage sales? Do you stop at every thrift shop and flea market you see? If so why? I happen to be one of those people and not because I enjoy looking through endless piles of junk or pre-owned clothes, I do it to make money. It amazes me how much money is just lying around on some poor souls garage sale table waiting for me to take it. The old saying “ one man’s junk is a another man’s treasure” is absolutely true. I can’t tell you how many thousands of dollars I’ve made over the years off of other people’s junk.

I got started as a young boy watching my father hitting garage sales looking for antiques for his booth at the local antique mall. I watched as he haggled at each garage sale over a few dollars, this process totally amazed me. I soon took up following his lead, read books on many different types of antiques and collectibles, and soon learned the value of what I wanted to find. This later led me to become an auctioneer and open my own auction house but I’ll save that for another day.

My whole point with this article is to make you open your eyes and realize that this is something everyone can do to make extra money. If you want to be come good at the art of making money from garage sale and flea market finds you need to do some studying.
Spend time going to auctions, browsing eBay, reading antique price guides and magazines to get a solid foundation at knowing an items true value. Key things you need to learn to make money through garage sales are:

How old is it? - Look for maker’s marks. Learn the different ways manufactures marked their items. Usually you can determine an antiques age just by looking at the makers mark.

What is it made of? You need to learn the difference between pewter, lead, copper, bronze and many other metals. Know the different types of clay and pottery glazes. Learn to know the difference between acrylic and oil paints. If you ever going to make money through garage sales you need to learn.

Is it a fake? Just as important as knowing an antiques age and value is knowing when you have a fake. Many of the most popular antiques on the market today are reproductions and people just don’t know it. If it is a fake is it worth any money? Yes some are if you know which ones to look for. There are just as many books on reproduction antiques as there are on real antiques READ THEM. Knowing what your buying is one of the most important things when it comes to making money from garage sales.

If you get a basic understanding of each of these things you’ll be well ahead of most when it comes to making money from garage sales.

Extra Income | You Can Make Money On EBay With Out Selling Items

If you are not familiar with BANS (build a niche store), its basically a script that creates website specifically designed for EBay’s affiliate program

EBay’s affiliate program is much like any other affiliate program. You get paid in a couple ways.
1.When a user clicks on a link from your site and goes to ebay and buys an Item through auction or immediate purchase EBay pays you 50% of their a commission. Example: is eBay makes $5 you get $2.50

2.When users that have never registered to eBay sign up for eBay and bid on and Item. You get $25

BANS is software that helps you to create all the links you need to specific products on EBay.

What you need to use BANS with eBay

1. An eBay user account and affiliate account.
2. A web hosting account: I use Hostgator, as do many others with BANS sites. buy a Reseller account if you can afford it. I’m using a standard hosting package with my 10 sites right now but can see that I will have to upgrade if I keep making BANS sites.

3. A domain name. Currently GoDaddy is selling “.info” domains for $1.99

The strategy behind using Ebay’s affiliate program is to focus in on a specific product or group of products. For example Scissors there are many types, sized and brands of scissors. You could build an entire BANS site on just scissors.

Example : Left handed scissors, kid safe scissors, vintage sewing scissors.
This doesn’t mean your BANS site has to be limited to just 3 pages but you should have 3 primary keyword to get users to your site from Google. Once you have keyword authority for those primary keywords you can then start targeting others.

That’s the basic rundown on what BANS is all about. If you want specifics see this post on BANS

Once you have your BANS site up and running you work on getting backlinks and keyword authority.

Make Extra Income From Garage Sales

In several of my previous posts I've discuss how making money from eBay relies on finding items to sell from garage sales, auctions and flea markets. Some things to keep in mind when your hitting your local garage sales. Spring time brings lots of sports items to look for. Little league is starting, fishing season is just beginning in most areas, golfers will be going nuts from now until the end of the summer, family camping trips start happening. If you keep the season in mind when your looking for items to sell on eBay you'll be way ahead of the game. Sell things people need not just junk you think looks pretty. While antiques and collectibles always sell well they will never surpass the demand of an item that is regularly used by everyone. Used golf balls and used fishing reels are some of my favorite items to sell this time of year.

Make Extra Income | Using Hubpages And Squidoo

In several of my previous articles I have mentioned many different ideas to make extra income from home, online or through other means. Today I would like to discuss a little about revenue sharing. Revenue sharing sites are free web pages that allow you to create your own space in the web without having much website creation skill. If you can write articles, stories or other topic of interest you can use revenue sharing sites to create extra income.

Some of the most common revenue sharing websites are Squidoo and HubPages both of these sites allow you to create individual pages on a topic of your choice. Usually its best to pick a topic you enjoy or have experience with to make writing your hubpage easier. Let's say you are a coin collector, you could right about a specific coin, coin grading, or recent activities in the coin collecting market. Once you have your article created and added to your Hubpage or Squiddo page ads that are relevant to your specific topic will appear. Usually ads by Google, Amazon or other affiliate programs like eBay.

The income is generated by users reading your hubpage about coin collecting and wanting more information, so they click on one of the ads hosted on the site. The revenue that Squidoo or HubPages makes from the user clicking on the ad is then shared with you. The exact amount of revenue that is shared varies from one site to another, make sure to read the terms and conditions on your Hubpage or Squido page when you register.

The extra income you generate from revenue sharing programs or sites like this wont be a lot, but you might be surprised how it adds up over time. Like I've stated in previous articles eBay or the eBay affiliate program are probably going to be your quickest ways to make money, but if you like to write and have a topic you feel comfortable with Hubpages or Squidoo pages might just be right for you to make extra income.

Make Extra Income | Take Advantage Of The Economy

If you looking to make extra income through eBay, local auctions, garage sales or flea markets, now is the time. The US economy has many people and businesses scared for their lives. This fear means huge profit potential for you.

Anytime the economy gets weak retail outlets starts marking down prices on high dollar luxury type items. Electronics, computers, boats, and other non necessity items. This makes it a prime time to start looking for money making inventory that you can pick up cheap for reselling on auction. When the economy gets weak like this buyers start ignoring retail stores and looking towards discount sellers, eBay, and other non traditional retail options in search of bargains. Making extra income of these bargain seekers is super easy especially since they have turned their focus away from traditional stores.

Garage sales should be booming this year also as people are trying to make an exta buck to help with bills. My prediction is that there should be some very nice high quality items showing up that can be bought at a big discount. Boats, campers, and other types of high dollar non-necessity items should be everywhere. Don't forget you can sell large ticket items on eBay. Just because someone in your town has to sell their boat or pop-up camper, doesn't mean that there aren't buyers in other parts of the country willing to buy. I've made some real nice money selling fishing boats and motors on eBay.

The whole point of this post is to get you to focus on making extra income not worrying about the economy. Just like the stock market buy low sell high. You may find you can buy enough inventory during this economic down turn to keep you making more money the rest of the year.

Extra Income | Ebay Affiliate Program Change

In my last article I mentioned the possibility of making extra income from eBay by allowing others to do the selling for you. This is done by many using their affiliate program and a couple different methods of creating websites specifically designed for EBay affiliates. BANS was the software I brought up in the last post but there are several others that are similar. Anyone that is already set up and running a website designed for the EBay affiliate program needs to be aware that there are major changes taking place.

EBay makes a major change in their affiliate program beginning on April 1st. Currently, EBay uses Commission Junction and Valueclick to handle most of their affiliate program tracking and payments. The eBay affiliate program has been relied upon by many as a primary source of extra income. I must say I have used it in the past, but it hasn't been a significant part of the extra money I make on the Internet.

According to eBay bringing their affiliate program in house will have several benefits to their users including:

  • Better reporting of statistics
  • Targeted Banners and rich media
  • Geo-targeting and landing page improvements
  • Global registration to many countries at once.

Ebay will launch its new affilate program and maintain its existing partnership with Commision Junction through May 1st. Anyone wanting to participate or that is already a part of the ebay affiliate program should make sure they are set up with the new program before the May 1st deadline.

Addition information can be found on Ebay in their affiliate section.

Making extra income or more money through ebay isnt the only way, there are other ways to have more money now. I have just found that ebay is one of the quickest, and easiest if your unemployed or retired. Gathering fresh items to sell can and will eventually become a bit of a chore.

Here are some other ways to generate some extra income and have more money now:

1. Write articles - web site owners are always looking for valuable content for their websites to keep them looking fresh and informative. You can choose a topic and write several articles in that related field, bundle them together and sell them on everyone likes writing so this may not be usefull for you.

2. Moonlight- If your currently working, especially if you have a specific skill or talent that is in demand you can find some extra income from moonlighting. For example: I work as a Network Analyst and often I will pick up side jobs at night networking small businesses, homes or private organizations. If you have a unique talent you will often find these small jobs pay more money per hour than your current job, since they are usually just short term.

3. Create a website- If you enjoy the Internet start your own website on a topic your an expert in or have a desire to learn more about. This however can be difficult to generate extra income from as it takes time to build up web traffic and get readers to your website. Pepperjam Affiliate offers $10 free to sign up.

Extra Income | How To Take The Buyers Money

I have discussed several topics here on how to get started making extra income selling through ebay. Today we'll discuss how to get your money from the buyer. I always like to offer the buyer multiple ways to pay for their items. To maximize your potential buyer base you need to take personal checks, money orders and credit cards. You will find that most buyers pay with a credit card. PayPal is the prefered payment method that most buyers use. Make sure to start your self a Paypal account and utilize all thier tools to make selling on ebay easier. PayPal is an ebay company and you can find more information about the proper use of PayPal on eBay seller forum and their website.

If you take personal checks make sure you note in your sale description that you will hold the item until the check clears. Never ship an item before the check has cleared your bank. We want to make extra income not give stuff away for free :) Hopefully by now you are well on your way to making some extra money selling your items on ebay.

Extra Income| Know What Your Selling

My last topic on making extra income covered knowing what to sell. Today I'll cover a little more about what to do after you have found a few items to sell. Nobody ever wants to sell something and find out he or she could have made more money if they had only done their research. Once you have your item at home you must do an eBay search on it to see if others are selling it and for how much. That will give you a basic idea of its value. In addition to that you need to find out some specifics about the item to post in your auction ad. Things to consider are who is the manufacture, how old is the item, what is its condition, and are there any specific terms used by collectors relating to the item you have? Things to look up on the Internet and resource books:

1. Where was it made and who made it?

2. When was it made?

3. Are there any unique features or characteristics that you need to know about?

4. Is there a collector market for it?

Everything you need to know can be found on the Internet on just about any item you have to sell. You can determine lots of information about an item just by looking for labels or marking that were put on by the manufacture. These markings will also help in determining its age. Maker’s marks, labels and company logos usually change over time. Learning these things about the item you found and relaying them to your buyers will definitely help you increase the amount of money you make on the item.
Once you have all the information you need its time to list the item for sale. You are now well on your way to making extra money by selling items on ebay.

Extra Income|Know What To Sell

If your looking to make extra income through buying items at garage sales and reselling on eBay, then you need to start learning what items are worth. How can you possibly buy something for resell if you don’t know its value? I had a bit of an advantage when I first stared, as I had been an auctioneer for several years.
Here are some easy ways to start learning the value of those items you plan on earning extra income from:
1. Go to local auctions- every town that I know of has a local auction house or has regular estate auctions. Attend a few and watch what people are buying and how much they are spending. Before the sale take the time to inspect the items and make a list of a few you think will do well. Remember you should focus on small items that are easy to ship. Record what they sell for and pay attention to the number of people bidding on them. The more auctions you go to the more knowledge you'll gain.

2. Buy some books- Dont go out and buy brand new expensive books on collectibles. You can usually find them at your local library or thrift store. Having these older books will help you begin to identify which things are collectible and which are not.
Dont pay much attention to the values given in the books, as they will most likely be out of date. Your buying these books to gain knowledge of those things that you can make extra income from not to learn their exact value. eBay will let you know their current worth.

3. Go to some local antique shops- one thing to keep in mind here is dont pay too much attention to the price but rather the type of items for sale. Often people who sell through antique stores price their items way too high for a quick turn around. We want to sell our items not create a stockpile of museum pieces.

These are just a few ways to begin to learn what to sell to make an extra income. If your creative and pay attention while your out and about you will identify other ways im sure.

Extra Income|More Money Through Garage Sale

Here are a few tips to get you started earning extra income. As I previously mentioned garage sales can be a great source of items to sell on eBay. Here are a few tips I have used to maximize my money making through garage sales.
1. Research spend some time going through the local newspapers, church bulletins and any other source of local advertising to find neighborhoods holding garage sales.
2. Focus in on the neighborhood garages sales. Were looking for quantity of possible places to find items to eBay without spending too much gas money. Don't forget your goal is to make extra money not spend it on gas.
3. Dont was time stopping at garage sales with lots of baby clothes and accessories, unless of course this is what you plan on selling on eBay. Typically young couples just starting out and usually don’t have anything worth reselling hold these garage sales.
4. The early bird gets the worm! With all the shows on PBS and all the eBay promotional ads you'll be surprised at how many people are trying to find items at garage sales just like you. Get creative I often go to the areas having garage sales the night before when they are setting up. This can be a great way to make some real good extra income. You will be surprised at how many people are willing to let you shop early and get all the goodies before most people have ever seen them. There will of course be those people that get offended and tell you to come back in the morning but try to get a look at what they are selling and decide if its worth coming back for.
5. Time is money! Dont waste time looking at every thing they have to offer. Remember you are out looking for items to make extra money not for a new pair of clothes for the kids. The time you waste shopping or talking to the owners the more likely the next garage sale will sell out of all the good stuff.
6. Organize your day. Before heading out the door to hit the sales make a plan. Again making money is the goal not wasting it on gas. If you take the time to plan out a travel route to maximize your time and miles you'll be in far better shape to make a big profit.
7 Take a change. To often people pass up items that will be big money makers on eBay because they are afraid of buying something that wont sell. Your at a garage sale take some risks and buy a few items on sheer speculation. That whatchamacallit you bought for a dollar might end up being your biggest profit maker.
8. Items to look for: here are some categories that always sell well on eBay. Any collectibles dealing with history, war, fishing, sports, NASCAR, coke, and Barbie to name a few will sell well. You'll learn as you go along what will sell and what wont. Since your buying it garages sales, the prices will usually be low and your change to make some extra income off these items is very likely
9. Buy for profit- before buying an item ask yourself can I double my money? Triple would be nicer but, I usually plan on at least doubling my money or I dont buy it.
10. Start small and simple. Stick with buying things that are easy to pack and ship. Remember you'll be selling on ebay. Nobody wants to try and box up a sofa and ship it across the country. Stick with the small items. They are easier to pack, photograph and advertise.

Oh yea I forgot NEVER buy anything damaged. You cant get a good feedback reputation selling complete junk. I hope this help you getting started making extra income through the use of garage sale finds.

Extra Income|More Money

Welcome to Extra Income More Money your site for tips on how to generate some extra income in your spare time. The internet has become a huge plus for helping parents, college students and others create a little extra income to supplement their regular paychecks. If you couldnt tell already I am one of those. While Im not one of the super Internet marketing guru's, I have done my fair share of creating money on the Internet. You've all heard this before, but eBay
is by far one of the quickest ways to get started. Find a few items you dont want or need any longer and just search eBay to see if anyone has sold them in the past. Chances are very high someone has sold the exact item you have. These items will be what you use to get started creating your extra income. Sign up on eBay and go through the sellers tutorial on their website and follow the step by step instructions and you will have an item sold in no time. In the past Ive been an auctioneer to earn income on the side but the sheer number of people bidding on items through eBay doesnt compare to what a live onsite auction can produce. If you havent tried selling an eBay
you wont believe how simple it is to sell your items. I started by selling items I found through local garage sales, auctions, flea markets and thrift stores. For creating extra money I found selling paper items like old postcards, magazines, and other types of paper products is very profitable.

There are some very basic rules you should follow to make sure your selling experience is a good one.
1. Protect your feedback.
2. Value your customers
3. Be honest in your description of items you sell
4. Always post a picture of the item.

Feedback is how your buyers rate you and is the most important thing to protect. Without a good feedback you might as well quit selling on EBay because you just waste your time and money. You can protect it by treating your customers like you would want to be treated. Answer their question in a timely manner. Always describe your item to the best of your ability. If your item is a collectible do a little research on it and know the lingo of the collectors. Whenever in doubt as to how describe your item or answer questions let the buyer know your not an expert and aren’t sure. Posting a picture of you item is the easiest way to ensure the buyer knows what they are getting. Buy a cheap digital camera or scanner and always make sure to post an actual picture of your item. This is just the beginning of what I hope to be a long series on how to create extra income by using eBay In future posts I’ll explain some very good tactics on how to maximize your earning potential through buying items at garages sales that most people don’t utilize.Click Here!
