Running an E-Bay Business From Home

With more than 200,000 businesses trading on E-Bay this year and many of them being small to medium sized enterprises run from home, it could be a great time to consider starting your own business and using E-Bay as the platform to sell your items.

There are many success stories of ex shelf-stackers, factory workers and teachers who all began with a small investment and worked from their homes in their spare times – just needing a computer and a place to store their items.  Most entrepreneurs begin with storing their items in their spare rooms, garages and hallways until they begin to run out of space.

Keeping costs down is vital in any business and especially when the business is in its early stages.  Investing in large business premises and storage may not be the right business decision to make, especially if the business could well expand rapidly.

What new businesses really need is the flexibility of space, to increase or decrease the storage they have, depending on the success of the business but also taking in to account the seasonal variations in business.

One E-Bay seller began in a 2 bedroom flat and now turns over £1.5m each month.

Another seller, a cancer suffer, began her E-Bay business to distract her from her illness and now turns over £1.4m per month.

There really is no ceiling to the sales that are achievable, with hard work, determination and savvy storage solutions.
