Your e-book could be

  • helping others in solving their daily problems in life.
  • fiction stories.
  • teaching others how to do well in a particular sport.

Honest ways to make money on the Internet #3 – Buy in bulk and re-sell Online.

You can buy goods in bulk from China through Alibaba and then open an online store at Qoo10 or Ebay to sell them for a profit.

Do check out the cost of setting up your online store at these places and take note of the terms and conditions.

This will prevent you from losing your business if you violate their terms and conditions unknowingly.


Honest ways to make money on the Internet #4 – Membership program.

A very good example is Wealthy Affiliate.

Wealthy Affiliate provides Education, Tools, Community Support and Website hosting for its members for a monthly fee of $49 or a yearly fee of $359.

You could provide your own membership program to offer long-term valuable service to your members.

Of course, your services or program must have new materials updated regularly so that your members are willing to pay the monthly fees to stay with you.

    Hi Edmund, you gave quite good ideas on how to make money online. I am actually thinking of buy-and-sell maybe in the near future to earn extra more money from Online. Either creates my own website to sell products or do eBay. Because I love eBay. I buy lots of things there. πŸ™‚

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi Cesma, thank you for your comment.

      Buy in bulk and re-sell is a good way to make some extra money Online. Create your own Website is definitely the best because you could customise your E-store to you heart’s content.

      Moreover, Ebay and some B2B websites may charge some processing fees or commissions if you set up E-store at their websites.

      You could consider using the free* websites from Wealthy Affiliate for a head start. Then slowly as you get familiar with your Business and want to scale it bigger, you can transfer your contents from your free* websites to your own domain websites.

      Wishing you the best! πŸ™‚

    Excellent ideas, I really enjoyed reading this. I am making money on the Internet also selling clothes ordered from China, but I came to this at random.

    When I was sitting at home a lot with a baby I used to order many clothes and shoes from China and many of these, nearly half, didn’t fit my size. So I decided to open an online store just to get rid of it.

    I used a free website builder webstarts.com, created a store with real sizes in clothes descriptions, and posted a link to my store in my social networks accounts, so it took nearly a month and most of the things were gone! So I decided just to continue doing this. πŸ™‚

      Hi Dafna, thanks for your comment.

      I am glad that you have enjoyed reading this article and shared your own experience of starting your Online Business.
      You are a real life example of a person making honest money Online!

      I sincerely wish you great Success! πŸ™‚

    Hi Edmund!

    You have provided a great review here. I have tried the premium membership at Wealthy Affiliate and I must say that I have been very happy with it.

    I learned a great deal, and the community support is awesome! The only drawback is the pretty steep $49 monthly membership.

    Most beginners can not come up with the yearly discounted membership fee all at one time. It would be great if they offered a 3-month or 6-month option to take advantage of a discounted membership fee.

    I think more people would stay in the program that way!

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi Brittni! Thanks for your comment and feedback.

      I totally understand that $49/mth may be a little steep for beginners. Thus, I would recommend anyone who has learned more about it during the 7 days free* trial period to seriously consider whether this Affiliate Marketing business model is really what they want to pursue.

      Also, is Wealthy Affiliate is really worth it?

      I agree with you that 3-month or 6 months option will be very attractive for some beginners. Perhaps Kyle and Carson could consider these options in the future. πŸ™‚

      Wishing you the best!

    Hi, Edmund,

    I have been looking into making money online for many years now.

    I have tried a few ways including filling out surveys, you’re right the money you make here is very little!

    I have been doing affiliate marketing for several months now, some money is starting to come in but it does take lots of time.

    I have been interested in buying products from Alibaba and re-selling them but haven’t tried it yet.

    Thank you for the article.

    1. Edmund Post author

      Hi, Randy.

      You are most welcome and thank you for sharing your own experience with us too.

      Yup, buying products from Alibaba and re-selling them could be an alternative. Many people are doing that in Qoo10 Online Stores.

      Wishing you the best!

    Hi Edmund.

    Excellent post on ways to make money on the internet! I’m really interested in number 2 about creating an e-book and have been thinking a lot about that lately, but I want to make sure it is good quality and something I can help people within my niche and also that it’s something people want. I also need to learn how to promote it as well.

    I’m trying affiliate marketing right now as I’m a member of WA and have been for a little over 2 years. I’ve just started earning a tiny bit of revenue for the first time a few months ago, but that is through Google AdSense. Still looking for my first affiliate commission sale. I will keep trying and never give up!
