How eBay Auction Bidding Works

Wholesale Directory

We all know now that eBay is one of the most powerful (or probably THE most powerful) online selling platform there is. Recently, it has opened a new option of selling online which they dubbed as ‘fixed-price transactions’. Of course, their primarily method of selling and or buying online through auctions continue to be available. eBay auctions have continued to comprise about one half of all sales made through eBay. But what really is an eBay auction and how does it work?

An eBay auction is basically just an online form of the traditional method of doing auctions. In a traditional or actual (live) auction, a speed-talking auctioneer stands in front of the crowd, coaxing them to bid more on the price of the item being sold. Things happens real fast. Once the highest bid is placed, then the one who placed it immediately wins the item and pays for it. The same process goes with internet auctions just like eBay’s; the only difference is there is no speed-talking auctioneer to confirm bids. Instead, the bidding is automated, and it doesn’t matter when the last bid was placed – what matters is who placed the highest bid. The bidding process is all managed by a special auction software operated by eBay, and anyone from the all over the world with an internet access, and account with eBay, can bid.

In a live auction, the auction typically lasts for only a few minutes just until no one is no longer bidding. In online auctions though like eBay, the bidding period lasts up to seven days on average. In fact when you create an auction listing to sell a particular item on eBay, you can adjust the bidding period to one up to ten days. You can also set a minimum bid so you don’t have to worry about selling your item at a cheaper price than its value.

Next, a potential buyer browses and searches through eBay’s listings, and when he or she sees your item, he can bid an amount equal to your minimum bid or bid a higher amount he is willing to pay to win your item. When he bids more than the other bidders then he wins.

Just like in live auctions, you can also place additional bids as long as your next bid is more than the current highest bid and is still lower than the maximum allowed bid set by the seller. During the entire bidding period, you will be notified by email whether you have been out-bid so you can still place your additional bids (but as long as the bidding period is still open). When you’ve won the item after placing the highest bid, you again will be notified through email, and then communication, payment, and shipment ensues. The best part about these eBay auctions is that you can leave a feedback to the seller or buyer, so that bogus selling or buying is discouraged.

Top 4 Home Based Internet Business Opportunities

Wholesale Directory

Some of the more common Internet business opportunities relates to selling products or simply are performing services on the web. Here I’ll show you two key sales techniques and two key online services where money can be made from home.

Online sales is a massive sales channel in itself and closely related to this is the process of affiliate marketing. This is where you promote and sell other people’s products through your own web pages. Commissions are offered for each sale that you make by directing traffic from your website to the vendors own checkout process. The real profits can be made if you’re able to leverage the power of online marketing tools and guests the top of Google in order to see some major traffic.

The traditional option for sales online is to produce your own e-commerce website. Many people starting out will start by using eBay shops to test their products and price ranges. The short-term solution should be replaced however in the long-term with your own e-commerce website or by using online retailers to access a much larger customer market.

Just as the real world economy has become more service-based, so too has the world of online services. In particular, freelance services are a massively growing area where individuals can avail of some great Internet business opportunities if they have the right skills. In particular, working as a writer, assistant, researcher, recruiting agent, etc. is where many individuals can provide great services. The key is to use the right websites and effectively promote your own services.

Lastly, one of the more adverse Internet business opportunities to attempt is online blogging. The danger really is that it has become a very competitive market so you really need to pick a good niche where there are plenty of customers, not enough good quality content sites and/or not much competition.

Learn Quick Ways To Make Money Using The Internet

Wholesale Directory

If you are interested to make money online, there are quite a lot of options you can explore depending on your interests and skills.  For the most part, it is imperative to know and understand which opportunities are legitimate so as not to waste any time or money on scams or dead ends.

Here are a few legitimate quick ways to make money:

Selling Products on Ebay

What used to be a simple auction website has become a worldwide phenomenon as well as a lucrative business avenue for both sellers and buyers.  You can sell a wide range of products on Ebay, whether new or used, as long as you present them honestly as far as features and benefits are concerned.  One of the benefits of selling stuff on Ebay is that you can do so from home and during your spare time which means there is no need to give up your day job in order to pursue a good business.

Affiliate Internet Marketing

This is another very lucrative money making opportunity online that pretty much everyone can do.  Earnings are in the form of commissions so the more products you are able to sell on behalf of a business, the more money you get in return.  One of the most important things to remember about being an affiliate is that choosing the right programs and products is essential in achieving success.  In addition, you also would have to learn and master online marketing tools in order to increase sales figures and earn more money in the process.

HubPages

HubPages allows you to create single pages over nearly any subject. I use Amazon.com as an Affiliate and choose products that Amazon offers. To make money with Hubpages, I write one page reviews over these products and place ads of these products to the corresponding Amazon page. Then Amazon pays me a commission each time someone buys something through that one page review. I have several hundred pages on HubPages that are one page reviews and they provide a nice income month after month.

From network marketing to online marketing to door-to-door marketing it seems like there are a billion different ways to make some extra cash.  Many people will not even try to get involved or look for ways to make it happen because they are worried about getting scammed or loosing money.  The truth is that there are more money making opportunities that are legitimate out there than are not.  The thing is that most people give up or do not have the discipline to make it work for themselves.  They want to blame or point fingers of why the business or system didn’t work.  Just look online…search the term ‘money making opportunity’.  There are more negative reviews out there than there are positive reviews.  This is mostly because the people that do not succeed need someone to blame and want someone to listen.  “Misery loves company” and the people that are having success at a money making opportunity are too busy to care about the people who want to point the finger.

There are some scams out there though and some ways to find the legitimate opportunities compared to the shady ones.  The first thing to do is to ask for a referral.  Look for someone that is having success in a money making opportunity that you might think you would like and ask them about it.  If they are not open to share then find another.  They are not that hard to find and you can always look someone up online and shoot them an email.  The next thing to do is to use your best judgment.  The more you research the more you will find out about making extra money.
