Peerhub’s Simple Guide to Making Money by Selling Online

Why learn to sell online?  Maybe you have a closet full of clothes you never wear or a bunch of junk in your garage taking up space.  Maybe you want to raise a bit of cash for short-term needs.  Or you know that if you get the hang of selling online, you might be able to build a full-time business and escape the drudgery of a nine-to-five job.

Whatever your motivations are, the basic steps of selling online are:

  1. Deciding what you want to sell and taking good digital pictures.
  2. Listing each item, along with its pictures, in a marketplace website such as Craigslist, eBay, Etsy, Amazon, or Peerhub.
  3. Connecting with potential buyers to answer questions, and arrange for payment and shipment.
  4. If it’s a local transaction, meeting with the buyer to get paid and giving them the item.
  5. If it’s a long-distance transaction, receiving payment and shipping the item.
  6. Providing good customer service to build up your reputation and trust ratings.


Peerhub’s Simple Guide to Bitcoin

[1] What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a digital payment technology introduced in 2008. Digital assets (“bitcoins”) are units of value that people create with computers. It’s a gradual process. People and organizations with powerful computers compete to “mine” a limited number of bitcoins every day on a predictable schedule. They’ll stop when the maximum limit of 21 million bitcoins has been created, a project that’s expected to take well over a hundred years. Bitcoins are securely transferred for the exchange of goods and services from one person to another with digital devices like phones and computers. Unlike credit cards, there are essentially no transaction costs with bitcoin. And transactions are secured by advanced technology so they can be made safely.
