Sell stuff on eBay
Internet business does not get better than this. EBay is one of the largest online marketplaces with over four million users. That is a terribly huge reach for any internet business person!

Being an eBay ‘seller’ is not entirely a full business idea, but if it brings money and involves trade, then it fits this list. The process is simple. First you have to get it listed by taking pictures and describing your item. This involves setting the price, and then selling it. Next, you have to ship it. This is actually not as complicated as when you do the entire process on your own. When your item sells, you have to ship it to your buyer or create a meeting point if not far from you. Print with eBay labels and get discounts on shipping. Finally, you get paid through your PayPal account.
Freelance writing is another great form of internet business. All you simply need to do is source for clients online and write for them. If you are good with drafting cool articles, then this would be a great method for you to make cool cash at the comfort of your home.
