If you’re one of the few people who have not heard of eBay here’s a quick summary of what they do and how to can make money online legally using their site.
eBay allows you to sign up to their site and create a profile. It is usually very quick and easy to do this and requires very little effort on your part.

How do I sell things?
In fact all you really need to sell things on eBay is a camera to take pictures of things you would like to sell, and of course you need some things you would like to sell.
Once you have a profile on eBay you can start uploading photos of practically anything that can be ascribed a monetary value.
Everyone has things lying around or tucked away that they simply do not use anymore. Well these bits and pieces can be used to make you some money. Why not have a clear out of your house or apartment and see what you might have to sell. You might not think you have anything but have a look around and you will soon find that juicer you never use or that games console that is too out-of-date for your kids.
Use your digital camera to take some pictures of these items. If you don’t have a digital camera then simply use the one on your phone. Always upload a photo for your item.
Get the pictures on your computer and upload them to your eBay profile.
Write a short description to make your item sound as wonderful as it is and you will have another example of how to make money online legally.
How can I do this well?
Make sure you take some good photos of your items. Do not use pictures that are too dark or do not show the item clearly. Use the flash on your camera or turn the light on.
Make sure you write a description. A lot of eBay users are guilty of writing the bare minimum. Be different and make your items stand out by giving a thorough description of the item.
Make sure you are trustworthy by just being truthful. If the photo frame you are selling has some scratches be honest about it. You don’t want someone to send the item back, or demand their money back because of a few scratches. You might not get as much money by being truthful but at least you won’t get bad feedback either.
As mentioned above, don’t get bad feedback. Be honest in your descriptions and make sure you post your item or arrange collection as soon as possible. If you are posting items make sure you post them as soon as you have received payment.
