Buy And Sell Ideas



The saying "one man's trash is another man's treasure" is never more true than when selling stuff online. As our handy list proves, you really can make money from buying and selling low-price, everyday items, and even things that you might otherwise throw away.

  • As long as it's before the expiration date, you can try selling it on eBay. If you ask for a little less than the value of the gift card, it'll be snatched up in no time.Coat hangersGot a wardrobe filled with more hangers than clothes? Why not sell them? They won't go for much, but it's better than nothing! If you have a matching set of hangers, you can probably get around 50p online.

Wine corksWine corks are perfect for arts and crafts, which makes them a perfect thing to sell.


  • If you drink enough of the good stuff to build up a collection, you can make around 10p per wine cork and as much as 15p a pop (literally) for champagne corks. Facebook Marketplace is a good option for this, so you can sell locally and save money on shipping.

Your hairThis may not be the first thing you will think of when it comes to finding things to sell, but you can earn some serious money for your hair.


  • We've seen someone sell 800 of them for 48 plus 22 P&P but, more realistically, you can sell old toilet roll for 10p per piece. Still better than throwing them out for free, right?

Advertising space on your blogHave you got a personal blog? One of the easiest ways to make money from your website is by selling ad space.


  • You can apply to ad networks like Google Adsense or even reach out to individual companies. If they sell products in the same niche as your website, they could want to advertise to your readers.

  • Your photosWe're not talking pics of you and your mates getting drunk on the beach in Marbella... but if you have a keen eye and a creative head on your shoulders, you could make great money on your pics. You don't even need a fancy camera to produce money-making photographs either.

Old mobile phonesGot some old phones stuffed away in drawers that you haven't used since you upgraded?


  • Rather than letting them gather dust 'just in case' you possibly need to use one of them (never going to happen), why don't you sell your old phone for cash instead? You could get up to a few hundred pounds from them.

Your opinionIf there's ever a way to make you feel like your opinion really matters, it's when someone offers to pay you for it.


  • You could offer private tutoring or take on some freelance work in your area of expertise. It's a great way to earn some extra money and it also looks great on your CV.

  • Your servicesYou don't need expert skills to cash in on your services either. Apps like Task Rabbit let you earn cash for helping people do small (normally DIY-related) tasks. It's worth signing up to task apps to complete small and super-easy tasks in your local area for a payout.

  • Your language skillsAre you blessed with the ability to speak a second (or third, or fourth...) language? You could make money selling your language skills. From translating texts to creating language resources, there are loads of options out there.

Old university booksLet's be honest, you're unlikely to ever read them again. The quicker you sell your textbooks (i.e. while the edition you have is still current), the more cash you'll get for them.


  • Just make sure to keep the shipping costs in mind, as parcels filled with books can get quite heavy and pricey to send. Or, better still, just sell them to the students in the year below!

Old CDs, DVDs and gamesWe've all got films we've not watched more than once (or at all), or games we played once and got sick of. Luckily, there are places to sell your old DVDs, CDs and games and turn them into quick cash.


  • You'll be surprised to see empty boxes for iPhones, PlayStations, and loads of other electrical goods going for a decent amount of cash.

  • Instruction manualsGot any manuals knocking about for items you don't use, or know how to use already (so no longer need the instructions)? Manuals for things like sound systems and computers sell pretty well on eBay.

Remote controlsThis is another weird way to make money, but it's funny how every household seems to have a spare remote control stuffed away in a drawer that no one can remember what it was for originally.


  • You could also sell your tech to companies that refurbish second-hand electrical goods. For example, have a look at the offer prices from Music Magpie.

Egg cartonsWe're guessing this one is for those who keep chickens and aren't able to eat the eggs fast enough. Or perhaps someone who's looking for some cheap soundproofing?


  • Whatever the reason is for empty egg cartons selling online, the fact remains that they do. 50 half-dozen boxes will get you around a fiver on eBay.

Personalised giftsIf you're a bit arty and business-minded you could set up your own online store and start selling on Etsy.


A buy-and-sell enterprise is nothing more than purchasing cheaply new or previously owned products that we all need, use or want, and reselling these same items for more than cost. The difference between what you paid and what you sold it for, of course, is your profit. The mantra of every buy-and-sell enterprise is simple, and easily memorized: Buy low, sell high. That is precisely the purpose of this book-to show you how you can start and operate your own independent buy-and-sell enterprise so you can buy low and sell high, and make a bundle of profit in the process.


Buying and selling for profit is nothing new. It has been around for thousands of years; the only difference is that the currency has switched from goats and bread to paper and plastic. With that said, however, there are two primary reasons why buying and selling has recently exploded from being the closely guarded secret of a few, to the popular occupation of hundreds of thousands of people worldwide, who are now buying and selling as their sole source of income. The first reason is the advent, wide acceptance and use of the internet, and the second reason is what I refer to as the new economy.


The proliferation of the internet gives entrepreneurs from every walk of life and from every geographic location access to a global audience of buying consumers, eager sellers, information, and resources as in no other time in history. The internet has not only made it easier to sell products into the global marketplace utilizing online sales venues such as eBay, e-commerce websites, e-classifieds, and e-storefronts, but to also source a nearly limitless number of in-demand products, which can be bought cheaply from domestic and overseas suppliers and resold for a handsome profit. Once this task was out of the reach of most small businesspeople because of the amount of time and money required to research and often travel to foreign and domestic product suppliers to inspect, negotiate, and ink an agreement. Much of that has changed. Now with the simple click of a mouse you can buy products cheaply from thousands of suppliers spanning the globe, and resell these same products worldwide through numerous online marketplaces, or locally through community retailing opportunities like your weekend flea market-all for incredible profits.


The new global marketplace has also created a second reason why buying and selling is not only the wave of the future, but also likely to become a large part of what makes up the new economy in industrialized nations such as the United States and Canada. It is no secret that manufacturing, technology and middle-management jobs continue to disappear daily, swallowed up by overseas economies with cheaper labor, raw product, and production costs. In fact, some studies suggest the job drain in these areas is occurring at an alarming rate, faster than most people, including politicians and policy makers, are aware of or care to admit. Call centers in India, furniture manufacturing in Indonesia and chemical processing in China. The resulting fallout in North America is a dramatic increase in the numbers of new small-business start-ups. Many people who have been or who will soon be affected by the new global economy have chosen self-employment as a way to keep in tune with changing times, make money, and secure their long-term future. History has taught us evolve or end up like the dinosaurs-extinct!


When you consider the advantages of a buy-and-sell enterprise over traditional retail or service-provider businesses, it quickly becomes apparent why many people have wisely elected to buy and sell, and why buying and selling will make up a large percentage of new business startups and the new economy. Consider some of these reasons.


The answer is simple-anyone. One of the best aspects about starting and operating a buy-and-sell venture is that everyone is qualified. Buying and selling knows no boundaries-anyone with a need or desire to earn extra money, work from home or to start and own a business can buy and sell, regardless of age, experience, education and financial resources. This is perhaps what makes buying and selling the ultimate self-employment option for the vast majority of people; it's cheap, easy, quick and proven to work and generate huge profits. Imagine the flexibility that buying and selling offers. You can buy and sell part time to pay off debts. You can buy and sell full time to replace your current income and in all likelihood earn more. You can buy and sell seasonally, enabling you to pursue other interests like travel. Or you can buy and sell to help supplement your retirement income and stay active in your golden years.


The potential to profit from buying and selling antiques is as great as the potential to lose money. Replicas, paying too much and purchasing items in poor condition are just three of the hazards you need to hone your knowledge and skills to guard against if you choose to buy and sell antiques. However, those who do take the time required to become antique experts are usually rewarded with big profits and gratifying work. 041b061a72
