How Do I Get Started?
In recent years, eBay has become a major player in the retail world. The site is a global marketplace—and for many moms, making money through eBay is a fun practice that offers flexibility and the freedom to work from home. With a computer and little knowledge, getting started is easy!
- First, set up a free account by registering at eBay.com.
- Then, set up a PayPal account. This eBay-owned website allows customers to pay for purchases via a secure Internet site using their bank accounts or credit cards. You also receive instant notification of payment received on your email account. According to eBay, 75 percent of buyers prefer to pay for their eBay purchases using PayPal. Getting verified through PayPal takes a few days and requires a registered bank account.
- Finally, scout the house for items to sell. Often times you'll get a better sale on eBay than if you had put the item in a garage sale.
