The answer to the question is YES.

I can live off the profit I am making from my online stores and the sales and profit is growing month on month.

But I consider it a full time business and more.

When I hit two sales a day, I understood that it was possible to make a lot of money here, but you need to be imaginative and to work 40 hours a week and then a lot more!

WIth 13 stores to manage and 7 more in the pipeline you can find me on line at 08.00am and still on line sometimes at 02.00am the next morning.

Good Luck.

There is no one great item that sells.

I can never predict what might sell. Today I have had two questions about Ukrainian Language Books and questions about a Lighter and a Toyota Gift Set.

Finding the buyers for your products is the key and the promotion of your store.

Have a read through the link below it might help.

I have 11 (I think) onine stores and yes, I make my living selling online.
For a few years it was the only income supporting a family of 4 with an oversized mortage, lol.

I'm new to selling online. I find that even though most of the time is spent on the computer, you easily put in more than the average day of work. I had no idea how much work that was, but I'm perservering...I think it's worth it.

I think I have about a dozen stores .... some I really work on alot & some need more work.
I have been online from home since the end of 2000.
Mega hrs but well worth it. I also homeschool 2 kids & since I'm separated, i pay almost all the bills. So IF you are ready to work your tush off .... read everything you can get your hands on & talk to other (like us) Wink The benefits are well worth it.

We are silver level power sellers which means at least $3000 monthly. We usually do a lot more than that. Considering we pay so low for our items, and listed so carefully, our profit margin is pretty darn high.

It is a good chunk of our income and we could live off it if need be.

A lot of time is spent on the computer but we can also go do what we want, anytime we want...which is great for a family.
