Ebay is a website where people buy and sell items online. These items may be sold directly to consumers or may be put up for auction, and awarded to the highest bidder in the allotted time. You DO need an account to use eBay, but signing up is quick and safe. Additionally, it is basically A MUST to have a PayPal account. PayPal is another website that controls a majority of the funds for internet shopping.
With a PayPal account, you can receive money for items you sell, and use money for items you buy. PayPal is best known for eBay, but in actuality it has spread out to many online websites and stores such as Best Buy and Walmart. Once you have your eBay and PayPal accounts set up, you are ready to start raking in the dough!!! Find items around the house; anything you don’t use anymore, but something that has some value to it.
Select to sell the item on eBay. Some things you will need to do this successfully are a picture of the item, a good description, an understandable price, and good customer service.

Make sure everything is in order and allow your item to go live.
