Easy Ebay/Amazon Arbitrage

| July 4, 2015

This little side business is so simple and easy, it can be outlined in just one page. But don’t disregard it just because it’s easy – sometimes it’s the simplest things that turn out to be the most lucrative, especially when you need to make some quick cash.

Here’s how it works:

Basically you’re locating under-priced products on Amazon, listing them as “buy it now” on Ebay, having Amazon fulfill the order for you, and keeping the difference. It won’t make you rich, it does take some research, but as we said – it’s pretty easy, too.

Unlike most Ebay work, you never actually ship anything. Listings are simple because you’re using the “sell one like this” option to list. And when you find a profitable product, you can often sell it many, many times over.

Here’s a list of tips to get you started. First, you need both an Ebay account and an Amazon account. Next, search on Amazon for products that have been marked down that look like they’re worth more than the asking price. This is where the work comes into play. Dig deep into search results, that’s where you’ll find the gems.

Go to Ebay to further research the items you’ve found on Amazon. You especially want to know what they’ve sold for in the past. Choose the items with the highest profit margins for you.

Only sell to the lower 48 states in the US – this way shipping is never a problem. If you have Amazon Prime, you won’t pay anything for 2 day shipping. If the item is over $35, you again won’t pay for shipping, but it will take longer to get the item to the customer.

And even though you get shipping for free, you can still charge for shipping if you like – it’s up to you.

Once an item sells, go into your Amazon account, add the item to your cart, and then add the address of your customer to your account. Be sure to ship the item to your customer’s address, using your telephone number. Then go relist the item. Only offer 1 of any item at a time – this way it creates urgency and increases sales.

Want to know how much you can make using this method? It all depends on the products you choose and the time you put into it. But I can tell you this – people have made their monthly house payments and more using this method alone.
