How Jamaicans can make money as an EBay Seller online selling Rare Coins to Unique Craft Items

Still interested in making money on the Internet?


Aside from writing online as detailed in my blog article entitled “How Jamaicans can Legally make US Dollars as Freelance worker Online - Jamaican Flexworking to make money from the Internet” you also have the option of E-Commerce on Ebay by getting a Seller’s Account.

Make sure you have a set up and verified PayPal Account, as this will be your main method of paying for things online as well as receiving payments from people who purchase items from your Ebay Seller’s Account.

Verification within PayPal is a process that you’ll be asked to do in order to verify you identity online. To verify your PayPal Account, you need to have a Credit Card or a Scotia VISA Debit Card or CIBC VISA Debit Card. Then follow the instructions in my Geezam blog article entitled “How to use Scotia VISA Debit Card Online” on how to Verify your PayPal Account using a Credit Card or a Scotia VISA Debit Card or CIBC VISA Debit Card.

Optionally, you can do a Direct Wire Transfer via a SWIFT/BIC Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication/Bank Identification Code) Transfer using the SWIFT/BIC for your Bank.

But as this is an inconvenience to most buyers online, especially Americans, it’s best you try to have a PayPal Account to do transactions for the reasons laid out in and argued in my blog article entitled “How Jamaicans can set up a Payment Gateway in order to process Credit Card purchases - E-Commerce the main Catalyst for Increasing Jamaica's Internet Penetration”.

As for Shipping, best to use the Local Postal Agency instead of a Courier like Mailpac as described in my blog article entitled “How to purchase items and subscribe to Magazines online and ship them to Jamaica.

Despite the fact that most of the local Courier offer their services such as Mailpac DealBug to allow you to ship down item purchased from abroad as well as ship items abroad as well as described in my Geezam blog article entitled “How to ship things to Jamaica after you’re purchase them online”, our Local Postal Agency is surprisingly spry when it comes to sending Registered Items abroad via their Courier Service.

Just make sure the items you’re selling isn’t on the Jamaica Customs website as an item you cannot import or ship abroad or export, technically speaking. Check the Jamaica Customs List of Restricted Items and peruse this list, as it changes ever so often.


But what can you sell on Ebay that’ll sell quickly, once you’ve paid the US$25 and set up a Merchant Account? Well the list of stuff that’ll sell on Ebay is restricted to what’s listed in the Jamaica Customs List of Restricted Items. But for certain, coins will sell, especially Jamaica Currency.


With the continuing devaluation of the dollar and certain coin and notes going out of circulation, these notes will become rare and thus fetch high prices on Ebay as stated in “Jamaican currency devalues as ...DOLLAR SOLD FOR BIG BUCKS”, published May 6, 2014 by Diandra Grandison, Staff Reporter, The Jamaica Star.

Other things that will sell are uniquely hand-crafted items and original works of art. But ultimately you’ll have to be guided by the Jamaica Customs List of Restricted Items and decide what you want to sell on Ebay!
