Something came across my email inbox and I had to share.
I’ve been pretty vocal about the fact that I dislike eBay.
I don’t like how high their fees are for sellers, I don’t like how their customer service is virtually nonexistent (and how many people have found their account deleted with no explanation), I don’t like how they automatically favor the buyer – and can take money right out of your Paypal account if a buyer makes up a sham story about an item not being as described.

But, buying and selling used kid stuff online is a huge way to save money or make some spare cash.
Today I got an email about a site called KidZola. KidZola is basically an online classifieds site that allows you to sell your kid stuff free. (Of course you can also buy stuff.)
Let me reiterate:
Ads are free, and sellers get to keep 100 percent of the profits.
Also cool about the site is that you can have someone else sell stuff for you (similar to eBay) – called “consultants”, these guys keep part of the sale but the process is more hands off for you.
This also presents a money making opportunity for moms.
All you really need are your computer, internet connection, a space to store the stuff you’re selling and some basic organization skills (umm – hello, moms are good at this stuff).
Consultants get to keep 35% of the profits. For someone with a knack for it, it would be a neat way to earn some extra cash from home. (Speaking of dealing with falling income.)
I plan on using the site to list some kid stuff. They accept clothing, furniture, toys, all kinds of items.
