00:00:00 00:00:03 hey buddy full family my name is
00:00:01 00:00:05 isabella i am the owner of two six
00:00:03 00:00:07 figure online businesses and today i'm
00:00:05 00:00:09 gonna tell you guys how you can sell
00:00:07 00:00:11 online without starting an actual
00:00:09 00:00:13 business so you guys know i have a
00:00:11 00:00:14 step-by-step playlist of how to start
00:00:13 00:00:16 your own business and how to set up your
00:00:14 00:00:19 website for free how to find products to
00:00:16 00:00:21 sell etc but i know a lot of you guys
00:00:19 00:00:23 aren't quite ready to jump into a
00:00:21 00:00:25 business and this is something that i
00:00:23 00:00:27 wish i had told you guys sooner and i'm
00:00:25 00:00:29 not really sure how i haven't done a
00:00:27 00:00:30 video on this yet before we get started
00:00:29 00:00:31 in this video make sure you guys hit
00:00:30 00:00:32 that like button so i can continue
00:00:31 00:00:34 making videos like this for you guys and
00:00:32 00:00:36 hit the subscribe button if you're new
00:00:34 00:00:38 here the method that i'm about to show
00:00:36 00:00:40 you guys in this video today i have
00:00:38 00:00:42 actually been doing since i was 17 years
00:00:40 00:00:45 old and this was always sort of a side
00:00:42 00:00:47 hustle for me of how i made money while
00:00:45 00:00:49 i was in school while i was a dental
00:00:47 00:00:52 assistant way back when and how i can
00:00:49 00:00:53 make money as a side hustle without
00:00:52 00:00:55 actually having a legitimate business or
00:00:53 00:00:57 even making videos so if you're not
00:00:55 00:00:58 somebody that you are wanting to create
00:00:57 00:01:01 content and if you're not somebody that
00:00:58 00:01:02 wants to get into marketing just yet
00:01:01 00:01:04 this is a great way to kind of get used
00:01:02 00:01:07 to shipping and selling without having
00:01:04 00:01:09 to market or without having to open your
00:01:07 00:01:11 own online store so there's quite a few
00:01:09 00:01:13 different stores like the one i'm about
00:01:11 00:01:15 to show you i've always used mercari
00:01:13 00:01:17 although there's other online selling
00:01:15 00:01:19 apps such as deep pop is another one
00:01:17 00:01:22 depop is more for people that like to
00:01:19 00:01:24 thrift so i actually know people that go
00:01:22 00:01:25 into thrift stores they find things in
00:01:24 00:01:28 thrift stores and then they jump on
00:01:25 00:01:30 d-pop and they sell their thrift finds
00:01:28 00:01:32 on depop i actually know people that do
00:01:30 00:01:34 this full-time and some of these people
00:01:32 00:01:36 that do it full-time they actually wound
00:01:34 00:01:38 up turning this hustle into a full
00:01:36 00:01:40 online store eventually as they grew
00:01:38 00:01:41 their following on depop so the reason
00:01:40 00:01:44 why i think people like to start off
00:01:41 00:01:46 with d-pop and mercari is the fact that
00:01:44 00:01:47 you don't have to tiknically market it
00:01:46 00:01:50 yourself you can kind of just have that
00:01:47 00:01:53 store now you guys know how i feel about
00:01:50 00:01:54 having your own online business i feel
00:01:53 00:01:56 like i have something that i can
00:01:54 00:01:58 continue to build long term which is why
00:01:56 00:02:00 i support if you really want to get
00:01:58 00:02:02 serious to start your own business like
00:02:00 00:02:03 ours but this is definitely a side
00:02:02 00:02:05 hustle and a way to make money for
00:02:03 00:02:08 anyone that doesn't want to put the work
00:02:05 00:02:09 in just yet but wants to experiment with
00:02:08 00:02:11 selling online so the reason why i like
00:02:09 00:02:13 using these apps is basically it's very
00:02:11 00:02:15 very little work so basically i just
00:02:13 00:02:17 post the pictures of what i'm selling on
00:02:15 00:02:20 mercari and mercury kind of does the
00:02:17 00:02:21 promotion for you so i'll show you guys
00:02:20 00:02:22 like how i set up the post and
00:02:21 00:02:24 everything in this video so you guys can
00:02:22 00:02:26 get started doing this too i am one of
00:02:24 00:02:28 those people where i wear something one
00:02:26 00:02:30 time and a lot of times i used to be an
00:02:28 00:02:31 influencer i'd get clothes for free i
00:02:30 00:02:33 would wind up selling them on mercari or
00:02:31 00:02:35 on depop so you guys could literally
00:02:33 00:02:37 find things in your house that you want
00:02:35 00:02:39 to get rid of to sell and i promise you
00:02:37 00:02:40 there is a market for a lot of different
00:02:39 00:02:42 things on these apps but with the
00:02:40 00:02:44 holidays coming up you guys know that i
00:02:42 00:02:46 toked about in my other video what
00:02:44 00:02:48 products to sell on the holidays
00:02:46 00:02:49 although you guys know i did put some
00:02:48 00:02:52 pop-its and fidget toys that i tok
00:02:49 00:02:54 about in that holiday video on my shop
00:02:52 00:02:56 but not only did i list them on my shop
00:02:54 00:02:59 but i also listed them on mercari to get
00:02:56 00:03:02 extra sales so i bought these giant
00:02:59 00:03:04 fidgets for 25 dollars a piece on
00:03:02 00:03:07 alibaba and i've been selling them for
00:03:04 00:03:08 130 on mercari and on my website on my
00:03:07 00:03:10 website i've actually been selling them
00:03:08 00:03:12 for about a hundred because i give
00:03:10 00:03:13 people a better day on my own website
00:03:12 00:03:15 because i don't have to pay as many fees
00:03:13 00:03:16 mercari the selling app does take fees
00:03:15 00:03:18 but it's kind of worth it because you're
00:03:16 00:03:20 promoting the products for you and it
00:03:18 00:03:22 just makes it really easy and the fees
00:03:20 00:03:24 aren't too bad it's very reasonable so
00:03:22 00:03:26 it's about a hundred dollar profit from
00:03:24 00:03:28 just selling these and it's not that
00:03:26 00:03:30 hard to ship i've just been folding them
00:03:28 00:03:33 up and placing them in a shipping bag
00:03:30 00:03:35 and mercari actually sends you like the
00:03:33 00:03:37 shipping label right away which i'll
00:03:35 00:03:39 show you like how to do in this video so
00:03:37 00:03:41 basically this is for somebody where if
00:03:39 00:03:42 you want to do quick flips on mercari if
00:03:41 00:03:44 you want to sell things in your house
00:03:42 00:03:46 this is a great side hustle and this is
00:03:44 00:03:48 something that i've been doing since i
00:03:46 00:03:49 was young so you guys are probably
00:03:48 00:03:51 wondering like what would i sell in
00:03:49 00:03:52 mercari like what can i do so the first
00:03:51 00:03:53 thing i would do is go through your
00:03:52 00:03:55 house see if there's anything that you
00:03:53 00:03:57 want to sell in your house you want to
00:03:55 00:04:00 sell clothes if you want to sell like
00:03:57 00:04:02 old anything you could look on my car so
00:04:00 00:04:03 if you're not sure how to price it all
00:04:02 00:04:06 you guys would have to do
00:04:03 00:04:07 is you can literally just go to mercari
00:04:06 00:04:09 and see like what other people are
00:04:07 00:04:10 selling you can go like through the
00:04:09 00:04:12 recommended you could go through
00:04:10 00:04:14 recently viewed and you guys see here
00:04:12 00:04:16 this sold a month huge among us for a
00:04:14 00:04:17 hundred dollars this was something i did
00:04:16 00:04:19 in my research that i could see other
00:04:17 00:04:21 people were buying that's the same size
00:04:19 00:04:23 that the one that i got so that's why it
00:04:21 00:04:25 says recently saw i was looking through
00:04:23 00:04:26 things and i thought it was funny like a
00:04:25 00:04:28 lot of people like they just put like
00:04:26 00:04:30 random poppets on here too which i know
00:04:28 00:04:31 like i saw that stitch one on alibaba
00:04:30 00:04:33 like for a dollar so like people are
00:04:31 00:04:35 doing like little flips as well so like
00:04:33 00:04:37 if you look up pop it you guys will see
00:04:35 00:04:39 like they're they show the other puppet
00:04:37 00:04:41 toys too but they have squishmallows on
00:04:39 00:04:44 here too and i'm not trying to like sell
00:04:41 00:04:46 fake stuff on mykari but fyi i've seen a
00:04:44 00:04:48 lot of squishmallows on alibaba and i
00:04:46 00:04:50 don't know if they're fake or real but i
00:04:48 00:04:52 always am curious if people are flipping
00:04:50 00:04:56 squishmallows or like flipping other
00:04:52 00:04:58 toys from alibaba like rare plushies and
00:04:56 00:05:00 things like that but basically i would
00:04:58 00:05:03 just go through um this list of poppets
00:05:00 00:05:05 and i would find my jumbo poppet to see
00:05:03 00:05:07 so let's type in like jumbo so here you
00:05:05 00:05:08 can see they're selling other poppets
00:05:07 00:05:10 there's actually my picture right there
00:05:08 00:05:11 i'm selling that one for 25 i bought
00:05:10 00:05:14 that one for i think like a couple
00:05:11 00:05:16 dollars on alibaba so i'm just looking
00:05:14 00:05:18 through this list and i'm just looking
00:05:16 00:05:19 for things that stik out to me and then
00:05:18 00:05:21 what i always do too is i always go up
00:05:19 00:05:23 here and i click sold
00:05:21 00:05:25 so i'm seeing what's actually selling
00:05:23 00:05:27 instead of just being listed because
00:05:25 00:05:29 anyone can list something but let's see
00:05:27 00:05:31 what's actually being sold so these are
00:05:29 00:05:33 ones that have recently been sold it's
00:05:31 00:05:35 really funny because this one right here
00:05:33 00:05:37 excel fidget toy box i've seen this on
00:05:35 00:05:38 amazon i swear for a lot cheaper so i
00:05:37 00:05:40 thought that was interesting
00:05:38 00:05:42 um and how you can set it up i'll show

00:07:21 00:07:24 going to show you guys how to list an
00:07:23 00:07:26 item on requires if you want to start
00:07:24 00:07:28 selling a mercury here's what you can do
00:07:26 00:07:29 so you're going to click list an item
00:07:28 00:07:31 and i like how it gives you listing
00:07:29 00:07:33 ideas here too that's really helpful so
00:07:31 00:07:35 click list an item
00:07:33 00:07:37 and then you're gonna add the photo so
00:07:35 00:07:38 i'm just gonna list something that we
00:07:37 00:07:41 have in our store so i'm gonna list this
00:07:38 00:07:43 bag and i bought these on alibaba two in
00:07:41 00:07:44 bulk and i'm reselling these on my
00:07:43 00:07:46 website but i also put them on mercury
00:07:44 00:07:48 as well just to make more sales why not
00:07:46 00:07:51 right and actually what i've been doing
00:07:48 00:07:53 is actually put my business card in the
00:07:51 00:07:55 package of these orders so when i'm
00:07:53 00:07:57 shipping these out for customers from
00:07:55 00:07:59 rakari i'm including my business card so
00:07:57 00:08:01 they can wind up shopping with our shop
00:07:59 00:08:04 in the future so you're gonna put the
00:08:01 00:08:05 name in here so unicorn pop it and then
00:08:04 00:08:09 click done and then you're gonna
00:08:05 00:08:11 describe your item unicorn pop it purse
00:08:09 00:08:13 i always put brand new in bag so they
00:08:11 00:08:14 know it's not like an used item because
00:08:13 00:08:17 a lot of people do sell used items on
00:08:14 00:08:19 mercari it's kind of like used for that
00:08:17 00:08:22 and then you can put in the um hashtags
00:08:19 00:08:23 um toys okay and then go down to
00:08:22 00:08:25 category it's gonna give you a bunch of
00:08:23 00:08:27 categories i think puppets you can
00:08:25 00:08:29 actually like search for it
00:08:27 00:08:30 but that all you do is like you just put
00:08:29 00:08:33 in these things i don't even know what
00:08:30 00:08:35 they're called i think under fidget toys
00:08:33 00:08:38 yep there we go and then condition so
00:08:35 00:08:41 this is new with tags because it's new
00:08:38 00:08:42 in a bag it's never been used and then
00:08:41 00:08:45 you're going to go down here to shipping
00:08:42 00:08:46 so we know that this is like not two
00:08:45 00:08:48 pounds
00:08:46 00:08:50 so let's um click edit shipping and then
00:08:48 00:08:51 what you can do is you can either like
00:08:50 00:08:53 do their recommended shipping or you can
00:08:51 00:08:55 do it this way either way the customer
00:08:53 00:08:58 is paying for it so it's not that big of
00:08:55 00:09:00 a deal but we're gonna do zero i always
00:08:58 00:09:02 guess the weights so i'm just gonna put
00:09:00 00:09:04 six ounces and you don't have to fill
00:09:02 00:09:06 out the lengths or anything and then
00:09:04 00:09:08 click select carrier and then just click
00:09:06 00:09:09 whatever is cheaper for your customer
00:09:08 00:09:11 usps
00:09:09 00:09:12 you could actually offer to pay for
00:09:11 00:09:13 shipping but i never do that i always
00:09:12 00:09:15 make the buyer pay because it's cutting
00:09:13 00:09:17 into your profits
00:09:15 00:09:18 and then they show you other listings
00:09:17 00:09:19 that sold to you guys see all these
00:09:18 00:09:21 other people that are flipping bags on
00:09:19 00:09:23 here um but where i try to like stay in
00:09:21 00:09:24 range like somebody sold it for twenty
00:09:23 00:09:26 four dollars so like i would just go
00:09:24 00:09:28 high let's try to sell it for 25. and
00:09:26 00:09:29 then all you have to do is oh sorry
00:09:28 00:09:31 brand
00:09:29 00:09:33 you can just click no brand
00:09:31 00:09:35 and then click list
00:09:33 00:09:38 and literally it's as simple as that you
00:09:35 00:09:40 guys so we got our item listed on
00:09:38 00:09:42 mercari so as far as finding items you
00:09:40 00:09:45 guys know i have an entire playlist and
00:09:42 00:09:48 video on how to find items to sell um
00:09:45 00:09:49 but with this kind of thing what i would
00:09:48 00:09:51 do and what i've done in the past is i
00:09:49 00:09:53 either look for if i want to just like
00:09:51 00:09:57 test out items like i'll go through ali
00:09:53 00:09:58 express or dhgate to find like single
00:09:57 00:10:00 items but then if i know that
00:09:58 00:10:02 something's selling like the puppets i
00:10:00 00:10:05 ordered a bunch of those jumbo poppets i
00:10:02 00:10:06 go to ali baba and i order it in bulk so
00:10:05 00:10:10 then once the customer purchases from
00:10:06 00:10:12 you mercari emails you the label you
00:10:10 00:10:13 literally just print the label off from
00:10:12 00:10:15 your computer you can just use a regular
00:10:13 00:10:16 printer i remember back when i didn't
00:10:15 00:10:18 have a printer at my mom's house i used
00:10:16 00:10:19 to like print it at school
00:10:18 00:10:21 so you can literally print it anywhere
00:10:19 00:10:23 you can go and print it somewhere if you
00:10:21 00:10:24 have to um but you can just use a
00:10:23 00:10:26 regular printer and then cut it out and
00:10:24 00:10:28 tape it on the package and i always use
00:10:26 00:10:30 like whatever box i have like you don't
00:10:28 00:10:32 really have to be fancy for mercari so i
00:10:30 00:10:36 usually just use like any recycled box
00:10:32 00:10:37 or bag that i have to ship my items in i
00:10:36 00:10:39 feel like i'm making really good profits
00:10:37 00:10:41 with those jumbo poppets and the thing
00:10:39 00:10:42 with the jumbo poppets is they're kind
00:10:41 00:10:44 of hard to find
00:10:42 00:10:46 and another thing is that they're on
00:10:44 00:10:47 amazon for a hundred dollars too so
00:10:46 00:10:49 people they rather use like their
00:10:47 00:10:51 mercari credits and buy through murkari
00:10:49 00:10:52 than just going to amazon and buying
00:10:51 00:10:54 them on amazon as well is something that
00:10:52 00:10:55 i've notiked either way you don't really
00:10:54 00:10:57 care because you're not spending your
00:10:55 00:10:59 own time marketing it or promoting it so
00:10:57 00:11:00 you're kind of just throwing it on there
00:10:59 00:11:02 the only thing that you do have to
00:11:00 00:11:04 remember is it does you do have to ship
00:11:02 00:11:05 your item within three business days and
00:11:04 00:11:07 you don't get the payment until the
00:11:05 00:11:09 customer receives their item which i've
00:11:07 00:11:11 never had an issue with i think like one
00:11:09 00:11:12 time somebody tried to scam me
00:11:11 00:11:14 but
00:11:12 00:11:16 mercari just fixed it for me so it
00:11:14 00:11:17 wasn't a big deal but if you're just
00:11:16 00:11:19 trying to make quick money before the
00:11:17 00:11:20 holidays or if you guys like get
00:11:19 00:11:21 christmas gifts and like you're not
00:11:20 00:11:24 really feeling them and you want to
00:11:21 00:11:25 resell them honestly murkari is i think
00:11:24 00:11:27 the best place to do that you guys know
00:11:25 00:11:30 i also mentioned depop but d-pop is more
00:11:27 00:11:32 of the style for thrifting and fashion
00:11:30 00:11:34 mercari is kind of just for anything
00:11:32 00:11:36 which is why i like it better
00:11:34 00:11:38 it's really just what i prefer but depop
00:11:36 00:11:39 is also effective as far as countries go
00:11:38 00:11:42 i do know that mercury and depop are
00:11:39 00:11:43 both worldwide i think they're in every
00:11:42 00:11:45 single country but it filters out what
00:11:43 00:11:47 countries you're shipping to to so this
00:11:45 00:11:49 is something that people can do in
00:11:47 00:11:50 multiple different countries just look
00:11:49 00:11:52 on your app store and see if it's
00:11:50 00:11:54 available i definitely wouldn't
00:11:52 00:11:56 recommend drop shipping with mercari or
00:11:54 00:11:58 with depop i know people sometimes they
00:11:56 00:12:00 drop ship through etsy and i just don't
00:11:58 00:12:01 recommend that because people they do
00:12:00 00:12:04 need that usps tracking number and
00:12:01 00:12:06 mercari is giving you a tracking number
00:12:04 00:12:08 and giving you the label so i really
00:12:06 00:12:10 wouldn't um try to drop ship through
00:12:08 00:12:12 this app this is really for people that
00:12:10 00:12:14 they want to just do flips and flip
00:12:12 00:12:16 items for profit if you learned
