Amazon FBA

Having your own Amazon Store can really rake in the cash! It takes work to set up your presence and you can start with a FREE account! But it's well worth it!

This list is in no particular order concerning best or worst, it's just some of the ways that I use to generate extra income.

Ebay –

I have been using Ebay for the last 20 years. In the beginning I went through the usual trial and error trying to figure out the best way to capitalize on it, but once I figured it out it became a literal cash cow. 

Setting up an account is simple, you just need to have a Paypal account to buy and sell. I have sold just about everything there is to sell on Ebay, from toys to electronics, phones, laptops, clothes, collectibles and even cars. Believe it or not you can make a lot of money on Ebay by just going to the Thrift Store and finding that Unicorn item and flipping it.

Fees –

Insertion or Listing Fee first 50 items FREE after that it’s 0.35 

Final Value Fee 10% Sometimes lower


Etsy –

I am new to the Etsy platform but it is turning out to be a good place to put my original art. I love to paint and I had paintings piling up in my bedroom, but when I learned that I could put my art on Etsy for the world to have an opportunity to purchase it I was estatic. 

Setting up an account is simple, just like Ebay you just need to have a Paypal account to buy and sell. Everything sold on Etsy has to be handmade originals, so if your a crafty person this is the place for you. You can make a lot of money on Etsy if you have that sought after item that everyone has to have.

Fees –

Listing Fee is only 0.20 per item and your listing stays for 4 months                                                                     

Final Value Fee is only 3.5%


Shopify –

I love my shopify store. It’s a dropshipping platform so you have access to unlimited products that you never have to touch! You create your theme, you pick the name and you have ownership over your products list. You can buy a domain for a very low price and now you have a personalized store.

Setting up your store is not as easy as the other two I just talked about, and it does take some work. You don’t have to learn any fancy coding as the platform is drag and drop. But you have to set up a dropshipping company and Shopify has apps that make integrating products into your store a breeze . This is your own ECommerce store and the possibilities are endless. Kylie Jenner started her makeup line on Shopify and so did Fashinova and now both are Million and Billion dollar companies!  

Fees –

It cost $29.00 a month to own a store but you get the first 14 days FREE                                                                    



Amazon FBA –

Amazon is now the largest selling platform in the world. They have outperformed Ebay and in a matter of a few years they have become a Billion dollar company and a global leader! With Amazon you are selling on a dropshipping platform but the products are sent to an Amazon Fulfillment Center and shipped by Amazon. You do have to set up with a dropshipping company, but with Amazon you have to contact the dropshipper directly by email and request a product build.

Setting up your Amazon account takes time and it is real work, but it is well worth it. You have to set up your store, contact suppliers, you have to research products so you know what items are selling. But you have access to millions of customers  and the opportunity to make a ton of money is definite and real. 

Fees –

You can start with a FREE account, seller fees can run from 0.45 to 1.35 per unit. Eventually you can grow to a Professional account, which is only $39.99 a month.                                                               



Craigslist –

Craigslist is another platform that I have used for a long time. Like Ebay I have used Craigslist to sell a ton of items! Computers, Cars, Books Jewelry, Toys, Videos and Personal Services. I have even found Employees from Craigslist. It is the easiest platform to use, you just enter your email address and personal information, then your ready to post ads.

Craigslist is where you have to be careful because you’re not selling online and shipping items, a lot of times you meet with individuals directly so major precautions have to be exercised when meeting with potential buyers.

First and foremost never meet people at their homes!!! Always meet them in public places to conduct your transactions, like a coffee shop or a bookstore.

Secondly take someone with you when you meet potential buyers. Never meet people alone!

Next, after the sell, don’t respond to the seller for other communications non related to selling items. 

And Finally buy a counterfeit marker and make sure you check all bills even $1 bills. If possible use CashApp, Messenger or Zelle for a more secure form of payment.

Fees –

FREE to list items for sell.                                                                   



Your Own Website –

Nothing I have done has been more satisfying than building my own website!  I choose the name of my site, control the content of my site, and I have freedom to write whatever content I choose on my site. So I know you’re asking well how do I make money with my website? Any way you want! You can set up a product selling platform, or sell services, or you can set up Memberships or courses.

And of course the biggest money making part of having your own website is affiliate marketing. You can get PAID to sell other peoples products and you can get PAID to have ads on your site!

It is now easier than ever to learn how to build a website, but it does take time to learn. You don’t have to learn complicated coding, it’s all drag and drop, but if you don’t have the time to learn then you find someone like me who would love to set up your site for you!

WordPress is the largest platform for beginners to set up new sites. You can create blog sites, ECommerce sites, learning and coaching sites and even your own social media sites. The possibilities are endless! 

Fees –

Fees vary depending on where you buy your domain. But having a website is cheaper than you think!
