Yardsellr: A New Kind of Yard Sale

A used pink bathrobe, a rare mint snowglobe, a Smurf T.V. tray. These are things that can be found in Weird Al Yankovick’s parody-song “Ebay” and on yardsellr.com. This site is much like Ebay, a user-friendly website where one’s junk can be bought and sold. The main difference in the websites would be the style in which products are organized. Items on Yardsellr are more specifically organized. For example, search “Dolls and Bears” on Ebay, you find a variety of different Barbie dolls as well as baby dolls, American Girl dolls, and a choice of stuffed bears. Looking on Yardsellr, you can find Barbie dolls in their own “block” and stuffed animals in their own according to what kind you’re looking for. Also Yardsellr is social network-oriented. You can get to know a seller in a more personal sense by clicking under the “Meet the Seller” box. There you have the option of finding the seller on Facebook, or sending them a private message. When obtaining your purchase, you sometimes have the option of meeting the seller face-to-face to receive your item.

Yardsellr.com has the atmosphere of yard sale shopping in your own neighborhood. This website can make an interesting networking outlet for avid collectors. Pursue your passions online for a reasonable price and get to know the kindred spirits selling them. Looking for another pet rock, an Alf alarm clock, or Shatner’s old toupee? Find them on Yardsellr.com!

Make Money Online With Fiverr

Many people at their homes look for quick and easy ways to make a few dollars on the side. There are so many different places that claim to be a real source of online income, but how many of them are reliable? We decided to put the website Fiverr.com to the test. At Fiverr you tell everyone what you will do for $5 and they choose to buy your “gig” or not. A “gig” is what your service is called on Fiverr. Now, here’s where the confusing part comes in!

While the website is named Fiverr, suggesting that you actually make money in five dollar increments, you only get to keep four of those five dollars. Fiverr themselves take a dollar from each gig you sell. While this fee is very reasonable, some people do not like it. What sets Fiverr apart from the other money making websites out there? Well, it’s very simple to use, manage your gigs, receive payments that get sent to your PayPal, make a few dollars on the side, and of course Fiverr has a huge audience so your gig’s are sure to get viewed!

Oh, one more thing that you REALLY need to know about, because I find this quite annoying myself, is that once you complete a gig the money you get from it is held for 14 days to clear in their system. This allows you to build up more profits within those 14 days, but by then you of course have more money that needs to clear. You can withdraw after the 14 days and send the money straight to your PayPal account, but PayPal takes out their share, so it’s actually best to build up around $50 before you withdraw although you can withdraw at no minimum! So, all-in-all, we love Fiverr, and if you can put up with their small quirks and flaws, you can make some serious pocket change over some time. You won’t get rich, but you will get a few extra dollars! This is a real solution to making money on the side, it works, it’s not hard to use, it just takes time and your willingness to do things for fiver dollars and only get to keep four of it. So go ahead and give it look, Fiverr.com!
