October 12th, 2018.



Ever dreamed of selling on eBay full-time? It’ll take a hefty amount of work – successful sellers flog more than a few pieces of tat from around the house.


An astonishing 40 per cent of home businesses actually don’t have their own website, either – they opt for selling on eBay and/or Amazon. It makes sense: you have people searching for items that they wouldn’t normally find in the shops and you’ve got a ready-made, diverse marketplace.

But you’ll have to treat it as a bona fide business, with licences, tax and a solid customer feedback score.
