    PayPal business account for eBay?

    The only advantage of the Paypal business account I can think of is you can order a debit card that you can use to spend your Paypal balance, and it gives 0.5% cashback. I think all Ebay sellers are paid into their bank accounts now (managed payments), not through Paypal, but maybe there are...

    Wholesale job lot of shoes for sale - approx 500 pairs

    Thanks for the ideas everyone. I hadn't thought of Gumtree. The local market is very small, but I will look at other nearby markets. The auction houses I have used charge so much, to the buyer as well as the seller. I will consider this if I don't sell them and can't find anywhere for them...

    Wholesale job lot of shoes for sale - approx 500 pairs

    If anyone is looking to buy some items in bulk to resell, this might interest you... Over the last year, I have been purchasing shoes from a wholesaler and selling them. Now I don't have room for all of my stock, so I would like to sell the shoes as a bulk lot by the end of the month, when my...

    Are Payday Loans my best option?

    Payday loans are a bad idea. For food and basics, you should contact your local foodbank (do a google search and check your area on google maps - the trussel trust search doesn't show them all). If you feel bad about using one, don't. That's one of the things they are there for, so people...

    Question / Discussion Amazon - Merchant fulfilled experience?

    I've only listed a handful of products. My best seller had a barcode. The item and description were already filled in, yes. I did try to edit the description slightly (I was the only seller) but it wasn't approved. If it's on Amazon already you aren't supposed to make your own listing - you are...

    Question / Discussion Amazon - Merchant fulfilled experience?

    Here's a link to some pricing info. With Amazon's Professional account (£30 per month) I found the fees to be similar to Ebay if I ignored the fact that I was paying £30 a month... (the fees depend on the category though so you might find it different). Since I downgraded my account, I pay...

    Question / Discussion eBay Dropshipping

    That's the reality of dropshipping. It's all about volume (and not being scared of the VAT threshold if you want so make more than a few hundred a month!!). I don't purchase anything until I've been paid for it, so there's very minimal risk involved. If you have the storage space and funds to...

    Smartphone Apps Premise app

    I've just installed this. It wasn't showing any tasks. I refreshed it (held my finger on the screen, pulled down and released) and loads of survey tasks came up.

    Passive Income Earner Honeygain - get paid for doing nothing

    Usually not long, only a few days from what I remember. The last 2 payouts I cashed out in Bitcoin. The 1st took ages, at least a month, and the 2nd, which was this week, was in my wallet the next day! If there is a problem with a payment, their support is good. They did reassure me with my...

    Question / Discussion eBay Dropshipping

    I guess I'm a bit wary of the extra paperwork/admin involved. I do my own self assessments, but I would probably want an accountant if VAT was involved, which is another cost. Plus, I don't see the dropshipping as a long term thing - it's just helping for now. I'm hoping to save as much of the...

    Question / Discussion eBay Dropshipping

    Yes, just to give an example - my turnover for that £4,000 is £45,000. This is why it would be very easy to sleepwalk into reaching the VAT threshold if you just keep expanding without keeping an eye on it.

    Question / Discussion eBay Dropshipping

    I've been using Ebay Elevate since July last year. I don't know about any alternatives, but I can vouch for them. The course is a certain amount on their website, but if someone refers you, they provide you with a code for a substantial discount. DM me if you decide you want to go with Elevate...

    Other Earning Opportunity Next steps with Etsy shop

    I don't have a clue what I'm doing, and I've set up an online shop using a company called Square Up (not a referral link). They are a card payment processor. I think if I had dedicated time to it, I could have set it all up in a day at the most (it took me weeks because I kept doing half an hour...
