How to Buy on Craigslist to Sell on eBay

There is another great money making idea I have for you. It is all about using eBay and Amazon as a source of product to resell on craigslist.

Every day on craigslist people post "wanted" adds. This gives you direct insight into what is in demand in your local market. Here is how this money making idea works:

  • Search through the wanted adds.
  • Find a high priced product that is relatively cheap to ship (electronics work well for this)
  • Locate the product on Amazon or eBay to see if you can make a profit.
  • If you find a product that you can resell email the person with the wanted add and tell them that you can get them the product within a certain amount of time if they can wait.
  • If they are flexible, buy the item on eBay or Amazon and resell it for a profit!
I have done this a couple of times, and it has worked great. It just takes some time to search for the right product to resell to a buyer.
