Just one e-book can bring in years of income on eBay. But there is a whole other world of digital e-book sales that most eBay sellers don't even consider - and it can bring in more income than you have ever imagined.

You may not have realized it yet, but the majority of e-book sellers on eBay don't actually write their own e-books. Some sellers may commission other writers to draft e-books for them, but this can be an expensive route to take. For more, most sellers purchase e-books from other sources, and resell them on eBay over and over for a profit. They can do this because they purchase resale rights, which allows them to sell the e-book to as many people as they want.
