One of the first ways that the Internet was able to justify its own existence was eBay. I'm sure you've heard of the Internet's biggest auction house, but for the uninitiated: The site lets you auction off anything that you own. And, it is an amazing marketplace to bid on other people's stuff you'd like to buy. If you need a complete rundown of how eBay works, then feel free to check out another one of my helpful tips.

What makes it better than buying a product at a discount store or big box? When it comes to eBay, it's all about the human element. When a store offers you a deal on a product, there's usually a plan behind that deal. The store isn't just giving you a discount, they're trying to get you in the door.

On eBay, sellers are usually just trying to turn their unwanted junk into cash.

This means that many of these eBay listings can be vulnerable to the same mistakes that any person could make. While a big chain store has an entire department dedicated to pricing their products, an eBayer in a rural county just doesn't have quite the same resources.

How does that make you money? Sit tight and I'll tell you!
