How to Sell Stuff online for FREE

Gold dollar sign prThe simple and honest answer is “YOU CAN’T”!

But you can sell your products or services without spending a lot of money if you avoid scams and hidden costs. I’m not going to cover methods where you won’t need a Web Site here, like e-Bay or AMAZON for example, because I assume you want to have your own webpage to sell different stuff online. I will, however, tell you how to sell stuff online with a small budget to see if you can make it work for you. That’s what I did and if I can do it, well the “village idiot” has nothing on me, Bill Gates I’m not!


You need access to a computer and the internet, and I’m going to assume you do since you are reading this. creative-thinking

Step 1: Choose an Interest: You need a product, service or “niche” to sell. A “niche” can be any product, service or information topic that you like or have an interest in. Everybody knows something about something. Did you just have a baby, then you are an experienced Parent; Have you worked in the automotive business, then maybe that’s your Niche.

Step 2: Build Your Website: Once you have chosen a “Niche” then you will need a “Domain” name for your Website. It should be a name that describes your interest or niche; say “Baby Safety Products”, “Baby Care Products”, “Backyard Mechanic Tools” or “Learn how to Start an Online Business”.

This will cost around $10.00 US to check and see if that name is available and to register it for a year at a site like (that is the one I use, but only pay for the registration).

    Let me tell you one thing right away. I love your point when you say in the beginning of the article- no you can`t! I don`t know what that is, everybody wants something for nothing and I have often been asked about the same thing. People want to make money without any investment.

    I like your writing, clear and to the point. WA is the best way to go and it is good that you point that out. Keep up the good work!

    All the best

    • Thank you Igor:
