Want to Buy an e-book on eBay? Check Here First.

A few minutes ago, a visitor named Phil left a comment on a post from August, HOWTO Become an eBay Millionaire. I took a quick look at what Phil has and it looks pretty interesting.

He buys those e-books you see being sold on eBay, which “explain” how to do a variety activities, such as manufacturing soap and candles or building a “virtual corporation.” Phil then posts those that offer resell rights online, for free download. This is a great way to see that pathetic products that people push, hoping to make a quick buck for shoddy information and packaging.

Don’t worry, Phil is probably making his money back in advertising sales.

So before you buy that e-book on eBay, check out Phil’s Floodle website. Perhaps what you’re looking for can be had for free, and perhaps it may not even be worth that price.

I’d say that is good as long as the resell rights allow giving something away. Most of the products that I have resale rights for specifically prohibit providing it for free.

Great find, either way. I’ll bookmark it.
