Hi. Not after a fortune but are there any quick profits say £50 a week?

Sold most of the stuff around my house.
Wondering about Poundland/pound shops?

Don't have a car and Corona going on halts things.

A consistent income would be great even at this low aim.
Any good resources/sites/info for this type of thing?

Thanks

Nate

I'm going to be watching this too, something i've thought of, is ebay buying a wholesale package but would need to make sure you can earn profit from it. Not sure that is the best route to go though.
Anyone know any good wholesale websites?

MANY years I went down the wholesale package route (And the droppshipping route) and i was probably buying the wrong stuff but the money I was making on some of the items was either pennies or nothing at all!

Get the right stuff though from a clearance and you'll be quids in!

Thats what i was trying to work out, whether it's worth it, any of the wholesale stuff. Clearance as in, in stores when sales on etc?

Tell you once place i've got a LOT of things from for my home during lockdown and that's Gumtree.

People tend to put things on there when they don't want them in their homes anymore for whatever reason and you can get them for rock bottom prices and i'm sure there is some great margins to be made!

I've been checking 'Self employed student mum' on YouTube. Seems like a good no B.S guide with sources mentioned and profits!

A lot of people are doing order from China, sell on eBay thing. I doubt there is a quick way as it is a saturated market. If you know a niche, then go for it. If you have the time to wait, you can look for clearance sales, for things like gift boxes and then sell them towards the end of Summer when people start shopping for Christmas presents.

In terms of Poundland, would you buy something off eBay for a tenner if you'd buy it for £2 in a shop? Maybe you will have a couple of buyers but I doubt everyone will fall into this.

Saw this on a live stream yesterday:


Someone from New Zealand selling say $3 / $4 of assorted crypto stuffs for $13 a pop on ebay.com

Absolutely no idea if selling crypto is against ebay rules but they have 3k feedback so they must have made a fair few quid.

Have a read through Andrew's thread. He has gone from selling from his bedroom to a lockup to renting an office by selling on ebay.

I don't understand this at all. They are selling like 12 ADA for $12 when you can buy it on an exchange for under $0.40 each. Why would anyone take the chance of buying through ebay only to pay more than double for it. Unless I am missing something.

You can fake eBay reviews, just like any other online website. I wouldn't bet on it.
