eBay is probably the best known Internet business. It bills itself as “The World's Online Marketplace"®.
You probably already know about eBay, and possibly you are already a member.
eBay can offer many opportunities for a retirement job online and there are many ways to use eBay that we will cover later in other topics.
You can work full time on eBay and create a full time job, or you can choose to limit your auctions and not knock yourself out running your business (or having your business run you).
The high volume sellers on eBay are called eBay Power Sellers, and in my opinion, they are almost prisoners of their businesses. They must be there to post auctions, answer emails from potential buyers, and ship the products when the auctions close. When you consider eBay for a retirement job, consider how hard you want to work and how much flexibility you want in your schedule.
A possible way to sell on eBay and still have plenty of personal time is to schedule to sell for a few weeks and then take a few weeks off so you do not have any auctions running and you do not have to worry about shipping for a few weeks.

It is best to keep your selling and buying accounts separate so you can protect your good feedback on your buying site.

Well, that wraps up our introduction to eBay. It is a great site for attracting a lot of traffic. It can be used well to sell products if you want to build your retirement career around eBay.
