For example, you can start by going through your basement and garage and finding items you no longer need or use and if still in good condition, put them up for sale on in internet auction site. Make sure they are priced correctly, high enough to pay listing fees and insure the listing specifies the buyer will pay for shipping and yet low enough so people will be interested in buying.

You can also sign up with a company that offers drop shipping and place their items up for bid. Typically, you pick items to list and when sold the company will ship the item for you.

The difference between what you pay for the item and what the item sells for, minus listing fees, is your profit. Of course, if the item does not sell you are on the hook for the listing fees. You can also look at making extra money by having your own retail store inside a craft or antique mall. These outlets will rent display space and there can be over 250 to 300 spaces under one roof.

Generally, in your space as long as you do not infringe on the space of adjacent sellers, you can set up your merchandise display, price it to your prices and leave it until sold. In addition to the monthly rent, there usually is a percentage charged on the amount of sales each month. The management of the building deals with all advertising, in general, to get customers in the door and it is up to the individual vendors to offer the products in an attractive way and at an attractive price to gain sales.

While there is some work involved, finding merchandise to sell, setting it up and keeping it maintained, it can be an easy way to make extra money. If you search online for ways to earn extra income, you need to be exceptionally careful in choosing programs that may require payment up front. After all, you are looking for a way to make money not spend more.
