Buy And Sell

I have been always wanting to do this-selling purses and shoes on  I started my buy and sell activities on eBay in 2008 when I first got here in the US.  The first few months of my arrival was quite boring because I was in the process of adjusting my residence status and I did not have the authority to work yet.  So to make my time worthwhile while waiting for the Adjustment of Status approval, I joined eBay.  I set up a seller’s account.  It was easier than I thought.

The first item I sold was a pair of  ladies shoes.  The shoes was sold on a very good price.  But what has got me was the shipping cost.  It happened that the extra money I had from the sale covered the shipping cost.  So, I did not gain any cent from the sale.  That was a little disappointing.  I learned that I can ship sold items to the buyer in a cheaper and faster way thru a postal service.

I temporarily stopped online selling when I got pregnant in 2010.  There’s no way I can manage my online tasks.  I was very focused on my pregnancy.  When I was fully recovered from the delivery and my little angel began bottle-feeding, I continued selling again last year.  Now, buying and selling on eBay has become a part of my lifestyle.  The extra money I get from the sale adds to the travel budget for the upcoming vacation.
