There are many very good books and courses available that I could not do an explanation of starting a ebay business justice. Ebay itself, on their site, offers many tips on how to get started.
My suggestion is to look at the ebay site first. You will find some good information on the site itself. Getting good feedback is very important. Start by buying a few items first, pay promptly, give the seller a good rating and ask for the same in return. Later look in your local bookstore or online. Pick out a book on ebay selling and have a good read. What to sell, start with things around your house, or go to the local yard sales and look for things you may be able to purchase. Keeping im mind that you intend to resell the item on ebay, so negotiate a low price, itís all about making a profit. The ultimate selling tool on the internet is to have your own website.
