One of the most significant ways that the Internet has changed our lives is the advent of the online marketplace. Now we can buy and sell 24/7 with people and businesses all over the world with the click of a mouse. And, with close to 250 million users worldwide, eBay is the biggest online marketplace of them all.
Beginning life as a way for individuals to buy and sell online, eBay soon became an additional sales channel for small businesses. It has also provided many a budding entrepreneur with an eye for a bargain the ideal opportunity for a home business.
Traders scan the listings and bid for items that they know they will be able to resell for a profit. It may be a large bag of clothing that can be broken up and resold as individual items. It could be a tatty coffee table that just requires a lick of paint to transform it into a desirable piece of shabby chic. It may be a job lot of old paintings with one or two hidden gems amongst them. The purchases keep coming in, the sales keep going out, and the profits keep rising.
There is something else to consider, however. As the number of items being traded increase, it becomes increasingly harder to store and manage stock. Hanging onto items until the time is right to sell can turn a home into something resembling the inside of a fully loaded removals van. And what are you supposed to do with the bulk purchase that arrives as a consignment of heavily laden pallets?! Unless you live in a home with an adjoining empty warehouse, you need to get yourself some serious storage.
