eBay and Amazon are e-marketplaces. Making business on either e-marketplace or through a webshop is e-commerce. We can call it on various names, but the basic meaning is the same in all cases:

SELLING - getting money in exchange for something.

Either way, you can sell your own things or someone else's, used, or new, physical or non-physical things. You can even sell your customers' own dreams for themselves.

Whatever you try to sell, you need a market. The biggest market on Earth is the Internet. Billions of people are connected online, so you can always find a customer for your things if you sell them at the right price. What is the right price? The basic rule of commerce says the more demand and the less supply is present in a market, you - as a seller - can get a higher price for your product.

Before we get into details about the ways you can sell online, we would like to introduce you to a game-changer concept first. If you are looking for something more than just selling your secondhand stuff from the loft, this ultimate way of selling online will be for you. It is a big one. It is called drop shipping.

If you would like to have just a simple webshop template on your domain where you sell your own stuff without drop shipping, then the same 1-3 steps apply below, and you can leave steps 4 and 5 out.

If you don't want to use the advances of drop shipping, then plainly create a webshop and sell your own stuff on it. For this, please go back and read the above step-by-step manual about creating a webshop with dropshipping and follow steps 1-3.

Selling on eBay and Amazon

You can sell your own stuff - used or new - on e-marketplaces like eBay and Amazon, and you can use your account at these e-marketplaces as your dropshipping shop.

Registering on eBay and Amazon is easy. Just click on sign-up on their sites and follow the steps there. Here we are showing you a few basic features of them.

  • Selling on an auction
    This option only exists on eBay. You - as a seller - have a starting price and duration of your auction and wait for the end of it. The highest bidder buys your product.
  • Selling on a fixed price
    This option is available on both Amazon and eBay. You give a fixed price and sell your stuff for the first customer that will click on the "Buy now" button.
  • Selling used or new products
    On eBay, you can sell anything, new or used. On Amazon, you can sell used stuff too, but there are product categories that can only sell as new. Such items are clothing, beauty products, etc.
