If you are reading this, you have found one of the best and easiest ways to make a great living at home with very little start-up money! Not only does Amazon's FBA service allow you to generate outstanding profits with only a minimal amount of effort required, but you are able to launch your business with almost NO start-up expenses by simply selling the unwanted items from around your home.

Generally, you can use it to sell new and used products on Amazon and on your own website(s). Amazon provides an order fulfimment service and does all the shipping and customer service for you.

Specifically, marketers are using it to sell on Amazon:

  • used books and whatever else is laying around in garages and attics. They box up one man's trash and turn it into another man's treasure,

  • buy products on eBay, Craigslist, etc and sell them on Amazon,

  • store products to be sold on eBay and then ship sold products to eBay buyers.

  • store products - imported, domestic and self made - such as homeware, electronics, tools, appliances, to be sold on eBay, Amazon, their own ecommerce stores and through their own affiliate programs and shipped by Amazon.

In short, youi send new and used goods to Amazon, they store it. You can sell the goods on Amazon, or on your own or any other web site.

In other words, Amazon is now a big garage sale and they do the shipping.


So if you have an attic or garage full of treasures, send them to Amazon, list them on Amazon and let them sell them.

If they sell, you make money. What does not sell, they will trash on your order.

Now take it the next step. Empty garages, take articles on consignment, buy bulk at sales, buy on craigslist, and get things wherever you can.

Sell them on Amazon.

It is not an instant business, but you have a business.

Your costs are shipping to an Amazon warehouse and the Amazon fees.
