FREE TRAINING: How to make $10k/month without ANY technical skills…

Hey all,

Steve here with one of my best friends, Roman.

 

My best friend Roman

It's not every day you come across something that can make you a full time income from home WITHOUT having to have a website, video, or any of that jazz.

By working smart rather than hard, you can use this method to bring in thousands of dollars a month.

In fact, here's how much one of my students has made over the last two months using this:

Watch the video to see how it works, or continue reading below:

 

How it works:
In essence, you are finding items on Amazon that you can sell on eBay with a mark up price, so that after eBay and Paypal fees, you have a net profit left over.

What you need:

  • An ebay account. The older the better, but if you have to make a new one that's fine.
  • A NEW Amazon Account
  • A Paypal Account.

Alright, so what we're going to be doing here is simple. We're going to be finding $35+ items on Amazon (because that gets free shipping) that we can relist on ebay with a mark up profit. Then, after someone buys on ebay we buy on Amazon and ship it to them.

First things first, you need to sign up for the 30 day prime trial on your new amazon account. Be sure to select that you DO NOT want to pay the annual fee after the trial is up. You do not have to buy a prime account, but having one will help your sales automatically.

DO NOT use your own prime account for this. As at some point you will lose your prime benefits for being a ‘reseller.'

SEE, EASY!

The reason this works is because consumers are lazy and usually purchase from places they feel most comfortable shopping. This reason alone is why the method works.

Next, you need to find an item that is $35+ on Amazon. (that gets you free shipping.) Then, cross reference the item on EBAY and see if you can sell it for more for a hefty profit.

Just because an item is listed or sells at a lower price on Ebay than you would like doesn't mean you should skip over it. Many times, sellers will be lazy and use automated software to upload their listings. Becuase of this, if you provide a more detailed listing and a better title, your item will show up for more search results throughout Google AND ebay. Also, your item will sell at a higher price.  Why? Because consumers shop where they feel most comfortable 🙂

Next, you need to decide a profit margin.

I set a pretty decent profit margin. Usually, I try to make more than $8 after Paypal and eBay fees. If I find that the item is a hot seller and sells more often, I am fine with making less per item, but never under $5 profit per item.  Ebay fees are 10% of selling value, and Paypal is 4%.

Set a specific profit margin and let that be your goal when listing items.

After you've picked an item and decided how much you want to make… the next step is to  create a proper listing on ebay. That includes a good title and a detailed listing. Almost as if you were selling something you yourself own and have been using for years.

People want information when they visit your listing, and most won't waste time messaging you and instead will just move on. So be sure to include plenty of details… enough details that you would buy it if you were shopping for one.

A commonly misheld belieft is that the more items you list, the more money you make. However, this couldn't be further from the truth for several reasons, but the main one is this:

Selling tousands of items at a time will take hours and hours of your time. You'll have to deal with hundreds of customer inquiries and keep fulfilling orders each and every day. If you fall behind on this, it will hurt your feedback and reputation which will lower how many sales you make.

Remember work smart and not hard?  Well, if you do it the way I do it is much less stressful and a lot easier to maintain. You should shoot for a few hundred items listed at first, and as you find which make the most sales and which don't make any sales, you can start trimming your listings down to the ones that only sell.  The goal is to have ~150 listings that sell regularly.

I recommend you do each listing by hand. Yes, this will take a while but the end result is worth your time and money. You can outsource this, just make sure they are doing it correctly and not using a software.

One last tip is to generally look for items that are not widely known or sold on the internet. For a lot of items, you won't even be able to compete because the ebay seller has worked out a private deal with the company to get the item at a lower price.

Titles, Description, & Images: Titles and descriptions are easy as long as you follow my instructions.  A lot of people who use software strictly use the same Amazon title. DO NOT DO THIS.  Instead, when you list an item… for example a Refrigerator… Include the Amazon Details in the title and then ADD IN WORDS to spice it up. For example, if you were to list a Refrigerator, many times Amazon just states “(Refrigerator + brand + size + color)” in the title. If you want to list one on eBay, you would add those but also includes words like (New, Modern, College, Mini, etc). Use as many words as you can until the title is full.

When you fill out the description, be sure to include the size, the model #, material it's made out of, power usage if any, battery types, etc. The more details you give, the more sales you'll make.

Use every image available on Amazon for your item. The more pictures the better.

This is where the benefits of having a prime account kick in, since prime members get free 2-day shipping to all of US.

In your title / picture, advertise FREE 2-day shipping. Buyers will spend more for this alone.

After you make a sale: When you make a sale, you now need to buy the item from Amazon. Order your item using your Credit/Debit card and the billing address the card requires. For the shipping address, copy and paste the address of your buyer from eBay. That's it! Very simple.

Common misconceptions: I'm sure you have some questions, so feel free to comment and I will respond.

1)  Will buyers be mad if they see the Amazon box? Nope, I have never had a complaint.

2) What happens if Items are out of stock on Amazon?  You will find that populer items sell out often on Amazon. So stay away from those. Howevcer, if you do end up being out of stock, there is an easy way to handle it:  CUSTOMER SERVICE!

If you treat your customers nice and be understanding it will help you ten-fold. If you respond and communicate in a timely fashion, you will never have an issue with an item being out of stock. Here is something you can say if this happens to you:  “Hi, I am very sorry about this, but my supplier had the wrong information on how many of these were in stock. As much as I would liike to wait for more to arrive, I feel the best thing to do is refund you instead. Apologies, and have a nice day.”

Then, of course, give them a refund after sending the message.

How to Scale:  They key to this method is to find a decent amount of high quality, regular selling items. If you need ideas, copy and paste the titles of any Amazon item into ebay. Make the same listings as other sellers, just make sure that yours is much better. The total amount of items you want is up to you, but at around 150 items it only takes an hour a day to maintain.

How to deal with returns: This part is simple. It is obvously up to you rather you choose to accept returns on Ebay or not. I do, because it provides satisfaction to the customer and keeps you in good standing with Paypal and Ebay.  Amazon will accept anything in a return almost so why not? If a customer doesn't want an item, they need to pay return shipping. So go to your Amazon Account, request a return for the item, they will give you the address to return it to which you give to the buyer. Once you receive your refund, you refund the customer.

    Hi Steven..the great way and i think it’s very easy to follow..thank you for share this information..i will practice and implement it..

  2. Stephen Gilbert, 27 February, 2015

    Great, enjoy 🙂

    A very easy way to earn money BUT you do have to have money in your bank or paypal account to actually pay for the item on Amazon before it can be shipped to the customer purchasing via Ebay when you start out with this method.

    Eventually when you have made a few sales, you obviously would have “automatic” money in your Paypal account to carry the costs of the items you sell from Amazon.

    It can turn into a lucrative business model providing you have upfront money to use in the first stages of this business model.

    I tried it early 2014 but because I did not have the necessary money to pay for purchased products from Ebay, I failed miserably.

    I do not say that this is not a profitable business idea, just to be aware of that all important cash on hand to pay for the first few Amazon products to be shipped to your buyers from Ebay.

    Once you are able to do that, you can really turn this into a very good business.

    Also be certain to read all the T&C from Ebay to stay in their good books.

    Another setback with this business model for me was that I am from South Africa and that it is difficult or nearly impossible for South African citizens to sell items on Ebay, so make sure that your country is allowed to do business with Ebay.

  4. Stephen Gilbert, 27 February, 2015

    Thanks for your feedback. Do you mind sharing what categories worked for you?

  5. Elsie, 27 February, 2015

    Sorry Stephen, I cannot give any further advice as to what worked for me.

    Like I mentioned in my comment, I did not go any further with this method because I did not realise when I signed up for the original course (DS Domination) that was very popular at the beginning of 2014, that I had to have money available to actually buy the products on Amazon before it could be shipped to the buyers on Ebay.

    I was really broke at that time, borrowed money to buy the course only to find out that I needed (more) money to follow this method.

    As I also mentioned, it can be a really good way to make money but you need money to start with it and as in every other business, whether it be online or offline, invest your earnings for quite some time to eventually have a profitable business with this method.

    If you have a good income source from other methods, by all means go for this one. If you are only starting out on the Internet because you are in desperate need of an extra income, skip this one.

    Also make sure if your country is allowed to trade on Ebay.

    Ah, thanks 🙂

  7. linda, 26 May, 2015

    Stephen, appreciate all the info… Can anyone input info about the different state tax notices that amazon emailed to me. It said I may owe use tax, but it wasn’t being reported to the states. Do I need to worry about this? This adds up to a good amount of money… thanks,

  8. Stephen Gilbert, 27 May, 2015

    I know that if it’s a sales tax and you are “required” to report it to the state, you don’t necessarily have to. I don’t know what state you live in, maybe best to ask some local people how the laws work. Hopefully some others here cna chime in.

  9. Lenny, 26 May, 2015

    Great post Steve,

    You are spot on. I use to be a ebay power seller. Achieved to in about 3 months with over 20K in sales. Was making at least 1k per month doing this. But it was taking time away from my family so I backed off of it. I was a member of DS Domination as well. It is the best training you will find online. Training is straight forward and easy to understand. I was making a killing selling the same items repeatedly.

  10. Stephen Gilbert, 27 May, 2015

    Hey Lenny,

    Glad to see someone else had success with it. You can do some great stuff with this method.

  11. Hennie, 27 May, 2015

    Very interesting post and looks like good business. Just one question though, I have a Amazon Associates account and currently doing some affiliate marketing with Amazon products, if I create a second Amazon account for the purpose you stated above, can I use the affiliate links from the first account to earn commissions meaning I will be purchasing products through my own affiliate links?

  12. Stephen Gilbert, 28 May, 2015

    I think this is against the TOS which could lead to losing both of your accounts. :/

  13. Hennie, 30 May, 2015

    Clear, thank you kindly, I will try your method and give you feedback.

  14. Stephen Gilbert, 30 May, 2015

    Thanks! Glad you like it 🙂 good luck!

  16. Shelly, 15 August, 2015

    I tried this once, and ebay sent me a message that it is against their policy to sell stuff unless you have physical possession of the items. “We need to make sure you are not going to run into a scenario where you cannot fulfill the order.” Then they ended my listings. Apparently they have some scanning software to look for this kind of “drop-ship” setup (checks for stock photos, etc.).

  17. Stephen Gilbert, 19 August, 2015

    This is always a huge possibility if someone reports you. As for software scanning, they could have that… I’ll try to research more into it!

  18. Roman Volynsky, 17 August, 2015

    Hello,
    I enjoy your trainings. Please keep up a good work!
    Have you heard about ” Web fire” software? And will you recommend this?

  19. Stephen Gilbert, 19 August, 2015

    Hi Roman, I have not heard of Web Fire. Can you send me a link to check it out?

  20. alaa, 04 September, 2015

    Hey Stephen
    I’ve just recieved your email about 10k via ebay/amazon arbitrage
    I’ve seen the video http://soulweb.org/10kmonthlywithamazon/

    and I have a question:
    when someone buys my product on ebay

    do I get paid instantly
    and with that money I buy theproduct on amazon

    or I have to already get a paypal account full of cash to start .. ?

  21. Stephen Gilbert, 04 September, 2015

    Hey Alaa,

    Yes after your rep gets up you do get paid instantly unless you already have rep. And yep, you can then funnel that through a paypal debit card and buy on Amazon 🙂
