Many people are looking to sell things online in order to supplement their income. In these tough economic times many people are living from paycheck to paycheck and this is certainly not something that is suitable nor is it healthy. In this article, I will talk about one way in which you can start selling products online for the cheapest possible price and some of the advantages and disadvantages. You should examine your own situation and see whether selling items online using the free methods is going to be worth it in the long run.

There is a website called weebly which uses and drag and drop method and you can use this website to create your very own site within a few minutes. I would suggest you write the content for your site first, then go to weebly and create your own account there.

You will then be able to create two sites which will be hosted on weebly’s server and you will be able to use a subdomain of weebly. A domain name is simply the name of your website which means something dotcom. If you are using a subdomain of weebly it means that your site will be something dot weebly dotcom. It’s not exactly the best situation, since it becomes harder to rank in Google because of this so your traffic will suffer but it’s a start if you are going to sell stuff online for free. The next thing will be to drop the elements you want on your site. You can also drop in product boxes and accept payments through PayPal or Google Checkout.

The main disadvantages of using this method of selling items online for free, is that you do not own that domain name. This means that should weebly decide that your business is not what they want they can simply remove you and you will lose everything you have been working for. Another thing is that you will not be able to sell that domain name should you not want to operate your business any more.

If you have a domain name that you know and you are getting traffic to that domain name if you do not want to operate your business any more you can list it on auction sites like flippa and depending on the traffic and sales you are getting from that website you can make a killing. Some even go for about $50,000!

Anyway, you will still have to pay PayPal fees when using this method.

There is a lot more to selling items online than this article explores. You should really learn all the aspects of selling things online before you really take the leap or else you could lose a lot of money or get really frustrated.
