I have been always wanting to do this-selling purses and shoes on eBay.com. 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.
