The Virtual Peddler: Learn how to make a living buying, selling and trading on eBay, Amazon and Craigslist
Times are tough! And, when times are tough –the tough get creative.
That is what The Virtual Peddler is all about. Everyone needs to make some money in this economy.
If you are out of work, then you need to make a lot of money –at least enough to live on. If you are still working and are like most of us, you could use some extra money.
Over the years I have written over a dozen books about selling on eBay, Amazon and the Internet. But all of them have focused mostly on selling new products. And that is where the problem lies for most people.
It takes money and risk to buy and sell new products…and these days money is tight.
Lots of sellers, including me, make good money selling new products –but the profits get squeezed year after year.
Luckily, there's another way to make profits online. Some online sellers sell used items and make a good profit. Sometimes the profit can be even higher for used goods than for new items.
Would you rather sell a new pair of blue jeans for $29 and make a $8 profit –or sell a used pair of blue jeans for $29.00 and make a $20.00 profit?
Or how about buying a cell phone for $45 and selling it for $179.
Those are the kind of margins you can make selling used products if you know the right ones to buy and sell.
Let's look at the problems with selling new products:
Don’t get me wrong –you can make a lot of money selling new products. Thousands of eBay sellers do it every day. But the lower risk and the rewards of selling used and vintage products can be much greater –
And, thousands of eBay sellers also do this every day --many of them large PowerSellers.
Why Sell Used & Vintage Products?
Lets look at the same criteria as we did for new products:
Rather than write a bunch of hype about how you can get rich doing this, I like to imagine the questions you are probably asking yourself right now:
Skip – Isn’t a peddler just a junk dealer?
Well, fortunes have been made in junk –but NO ! I will show you how to source and sell all types of used products from apparel to electronics, cameras to collectibles, and goods in hundreds of categories. Products that you can mark up 200%, 300% and even 500% and more.
Isn’t it a lot more work to find and sell used products?
A lot more? No. But yes there is a bit more. However, I think the risk and rewards far outweigh the little bit of extra work –and I will show you how to streamline and automate much of your workload …and how to get people to bring products to you.
Is this just another book about going to garage sales?
No. Although I do mention garage sales, we cover much-much more. Garage sales are just one of the 7 different ways we show you how to source used and vintage products that you can make mega markups with.
The Virtual Peddler is a complete system for buying and selling online –and not just eBay. We cover Craigslist, Amazon, Kijiji, Upillar and others. Oh, and by the way - you get the best-selling eBook about garage sales as one of your free bonuses.
Can someone really make a living doing this?
There are about 60,000 + sellers making a full time living selling on eBay and many more selling on Craigslist, Amazon, Overstock and other sites. I have no way to give you an exact number, but there are thousands of people making a living online who never sell a new product.
I sell both new and used products today, but for the first two years on eBay, all I sold were used and vintage products. We made enough money that my wife was able to quit her job and work at home full time. A few years later I joined her.
Here are just a few of the products I have actually sold on eBay (and Craigslist) and what I paid for them:
Notice that the last two items were free. That’s right - free. I will show
you several places and methods to find free merchandise that you can resell. So
even if you are broke you can get started doing this.
These aren’t one-time flukes. There are thousands of sellers who do this on eBay every day. And you can find these deals every day too.
I’ve lost my job. Could I really replace my income doing this?
Well, of course that depends on you and how much your income was. There are tons of people doing a version of this that use it to make extra money –a few hundred a week. And there are large PowerSellers who do this and make a full time living. I just can’t predict how much money someone can make doing this –but if your goals are reasonable, I am safe in saying most people can make a living doing this.
OK Skip – I am interested. How much does it cost and what do I get?
First - Here is what you get:
The cost is $17.00. You can pay with PayPal or any major credit card and it comes with my no-risk, no questions asked, 90-Day, Money back guarantee.
90-Day No Risk Guarantee
Remember there is no risk. I have transferred all the risk to myself. You have a full 90-days to decide. If you are not happy with your purchase for any reason, just contact me and I will refund your full purchase price.
Disclaimer: New FTC regulations require that when I talk about money made
selling products with this system that I have to state what the “average” person
made doing this. Well, as you can imagine I have no way of knowing that, so to
comply with the law I have to state here that the average person made less than
one penny with this system.
