eBay MoneyMakers Video Series & Chance to Win #eBayMoney

eBay is about to unveil their new MoneyMakers video series. The eBay MoneyMakers series profiles real families who have turned to eBay to keep their financial lives on track during tough economic times. These stories, told by the families themselves, show how they were able to make real money online, in a legitimate setting that brought real income to their families.

The first story in the series is about the O’Briens of Westfield, Ind., who relocated for a job that was eliminated soon after the move. With a new baby on the way, the one-income family needed to generate cash quickly. The O’Brien’s turned to eBay first as a place to sell unused household items and then incorporated clearance and vintage items as their selling proficiency increased.

The family now makes extensive use of the eBay mobile app to check potential selling prices on eBay and even list some of their items.

You can watch the inspiring video on the O’Brien family below:
