I'm looking to make some money outside of work and school responsibilities to pay off debts (ie V festival ticket:'(). Ive considered buying and selling stuff on ebay but have no idea what to sell. Anyone have any advice on what to do or sell?

Ebaying, selling in local facebook groups, selling stuff like:

Old clothes
Old games consoles
Old games
New christmas gifts you don't use
Maybe make arts and crafts?

I do surveys on GlobalTestMarket and when I do all the surveys I earn about £30 in two months (that's doing every single survey that comes to me)

The more I do the more I get. I used to get like one a day that lasted between 5-60 minutes, now I get around three. It's slow and can be monotonous but you can earn quite a bit if you keep it up

AVON isn't worth it. You have to pay for your books and the products and there's usually someone else in your area competing, honestly I wouldn't even recommend it to anyone

1. If you have a skill you can sell it.

2. Buy undervalued semi-expensive items for cheap. I'm talking Phones, consoles, tablets etc and sell them on for profit. Usually people don't know what things are worth and just wanna get rid of their item for a little change. I've bought many PS4's on eBay and iPhones and stuff from friends for cheap and put them straight back on eBay for a much higher price.

Games are very good profit, me and my friends all bought the same PS4 bundle at the same time that included Drive Club, we all agreed to go to CEX to sell our copies but found out we would only get £8 for a brand new sealed copy!

So I decided I could improve the situation by purchasing Drive Club from all my friends for £15 (£7 more than what they would have got) and sold them all on eBay for around £30 each...everybody won!

In fact yesterday I got offered a iPhone 4s for £25 which I bought and will put on eBay soon to make some juicy profit! Look out for friends or family who have valuable unused stuff sitting around and offer to buy it from them.

You can try stuff like matched betting (which can make money pretty quickly) or online stock trading but they both take quite a bit of reading up on and you need to have some money in the first place.

Also beware! If you make more than about £70000 per year, you MUST be VAT (Value Associated Theft) registered. Plus theres the income tax and NI thing you would have to sort out yourself. Not sure what the limit is before you have to start paying NI or IT tho.
