Does Anyone Here Still Sell Ebooks On Ebay?

I used to sell ebooks on Ebay a long time ago but I quit after they came up with their stupid rule which says that you have to burn your ebook on a CD and ship them through the mail. What a waste of time. However, it seems like many people are doing that and are making steady sales. You would think the market would be dead by now. Is anybody still doing this? If so, how much money are you making?

Why do you prefer Amazon? Share the reason's why and backup your response a little better.

First of all u can start the free trial for absolutely zero investment.......Amazon has millions of active prime members.....Its Kindle store is pretty awesome indeed.....and it is very compatible with all the latest smartphones (most of the users now way comfortable in mobile than PC)......Amazon is in the business for quite a few time now.....so it is quite legitimate and the chances are huge......In my words "Sky is the limit for anyone", if he/she manages to use it well..........

Actually the ebooks I was selling on Ebay came with resale rights. I was selling them as packages and they sold quite well.

why not give it a try with the cd? the cd and shipping would not cost you much and if they are still selling you would make a profit.

On top of that have you tried Amazon which was mentioned? What about affiliate networks such as Clickbank and shareasale? Post your Ebook and let affiliates do the heavy lifting for you.

Why is that? Ebay has a large active audience just as Clickbank does.

With Ebay you can find out more information from your customers then with Clickbank. Maybe use that to create ebooks that your customers would buy in the future.

I think even if you have to burn the file into the CD, it's still a good way to make something. EBay and Amazon are definitely the top sites to sell these because they're the sites people usually depend on for items like books.

I just checked E bay..
They list 20,900 plus......

The first page had a bunch at a buck each....

That would explain why some of the licenses do not allow E bay sales...
Dilutes the value terribly...

I you can sell a thousand a month a one buck each...that would not be so bad...)

Jim if I had to ship a 1000 CD's a month I better be making more than $1 a CD for it to be worth my time to burn and package. I guess the hope is the people click on the affiliate links

The first thousand gets you in the door...
then it is time for up-sell and/or related products....)

Statistically, the second sell is supposed to be easier...
