    Can anyone think of a volatile, liquid, good on ebay like silver bullion; meaning silver moves daily and is very easy to sell on ebay. Any ideas on what would be more volatile?

  2. a few years ago i thought about buying stuff off craigslist and reselling on ebay..

    once you consider all the fees, shipping, taxes.. there is no arbitrage
  3. Its really too competitive to sell on ebay now and ebay is constantly changing its fee structure so you cant even keep your books accurate. (sometimes they charge over 15% of the Final value as a fee!) So even with silver, after all ebay/paypal expenses, you may end up selling it for less than spot.

    Ebay is good as a substitute for garage sale items. You can usually sell your junk for more on ebay than you could on your sidewalk. For any marketable product you're going to have to create your own website or strike a deal with Amazon.
