I have decided that an Ebay business is exactly what I would like to attempt. Full disclosure here, I am an experienced Ebay seller; however, I have never done so as a full-time job. This change means that I have to make this count or my family could feel the financial pinch. I know that there is potential in any online business, but Ebay is something that anyone with a strong drive can do successfully. One of my Ebay stores is less than one year old and I had to start from scratch on that one. Starting brand new included zero feedback, which sometimes scares buyers away, Paypal held my funds for about week to make sure the customers that did dare to buy from me were happy with their items and my service, and since I did not buy a storefront to start I only had 50 free listings per month. Now my store is doing great and I know I can duplicate it as I create this new Ebay account to show all of you how to get started.
When you are ready to get started the first thing you will need to do is either use a checking account that you do not use for anything else or set up a checking account specifically for Ebay/Paypal purposes. I have an old account that I never use and I am going to link that to my new Paypal account. I do not want to intermingle funds from our personal monies or my other Paypal account, not for this project.
Paypal will want to link to that checking account, so after the checking account is established set up your Paypal account at https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/account-selection
This may take a couple of days to get all of this done. Paypal will probably deposit a few cents into your bank account and ask you to verify it, then you will be ready to set up your Ebay account at https://reg.ebay.com/reg/PartialReg?ru= and link your Paypal account.
Let’s get started!!
I have resigned my 9-5 position and I am going to give this whole entrepreneur lifestyle a try! I would love to have anyone who is interested, follow my journey and maybe even try it too. I will try and give you all the info you will need to have your own business too.
First let me say this: I am not a doctor, lawyer, scholar or accountant so I am going to make mistakes from typos to wrong links to just everyday mistakes. Please let me know if info I give you does not work and I will try to help. Thanks for being a part of my new venture.
