There are many ways to make money online. eBay is one of them. There are a lot of sellers who make money from eBay by selling products. But today we are not going to tell you how to make money by selling products on eBay.
We will tell you how to make money on eBay without any products in stock.
It sounds impossible to make money on eBay without selling anything, but it is not for sure.
Nowadays almost every e-commerce platform offers different opportunities for its buyer’s community to make money passively (without selling anything).
Likewise, eBay follows this trend. Having millions of active users worldwide, this e-commerce giant went above and beyond to maximize its profit scope by engaging its buyer community with different programs.
In this article, let us look at the top options provided by eBay and some options that we learned from our experience as well, through which people can make money on eBay without selling anything.
3 Ways to make money on eBay Without Selling Anything:
eBay Affiliate Program or eBay Partner Network
An affiliate program is one of the most popular methods people use to earn money online without spending a lot of money.
The eBay Partner Program gives sellers and promoters the ability to sell eBay’s products through a unique affiliate link. A commission is paid to the affiliate promoter if someone purchases by clicking the affiliate link.
eBay Partner Network can be joined with just an eBay account. You can then apply online for the program. It is the best and sure-shot way to become successful on eBay without selling anything.
How does eBay Partner Program work?
eBay affiliate marketers get paid in the form of commissions for selling the product via the affiliate link. Whenever a user clicks on the unique affiliate link – if they purchase within 30 days of clicking the link, affiliate marketers will earn a commission.
The good thing is even if they get any other product within 30 days affiliate marketers will earn a commission.
The best method of earning money on eBay without selling anything is by dropshipping.
But do you know what is dropshipping?
Dropshipping means selling products online without having the actual items in stock.
Let’s say you are an aspiring entrepreneur just figuring out how to plan things out and how to set up the space to store the products. The possibility exists that you may not conclude whether you should sell your signature label items or if you should sell them as a retailer.
What if the products could be sold online without having to store stock or maintain a warehouse?
Dropshipping allows sellers to buy products from third-party sellers and ship them directly to customers.
One of the biggest advantages of dropshipping is that one does not have to invest so much in warehouses and the storage of products.
Since marketplaces are not obligated to have their warehouses or manufacturing facilities, the money required for warehouse management, inventory tracking, handling shipments, machinery capital, etc., can be devoted elsewhere.
You may be wondering how you can make money by buying products, but you can actually.
You earn money by selling items that you buy from eBay, offline.
Initially, you should open some store in your house and sell to your relatives and friends.
You simply purchase from eBay the things that your friends or people you know are looking for. Search for the lowest prices for various items.
Once you have bought items that you need to sell, you need to contact your customers.
For example, you buy a tablet from eBay for 100 USD. Now you know someone who needs a tablet. It’s just a matter of getting in touch with him and letting him know you’ve found a tablet he can buy for 130 USD.
The customer will most likely try to bargain with you. However, you should never sell anything bought from eBay at the same price or lower. Always sell it for a higher price.
