In this fifth part of the article, we are going to see 15 procedures of how to make money online at home free through (buying and) selling second-hand course books, notes, old CDs and games and movies, your knowledge, photos, domain names, stories and videos, digital photos, vintage items or widgets on Etsy.com, articles, stuffs on eBay, out your closet, cars, services at fiverr, and books from Thrift stores using Bookscouter.

27. Sell Second-Hand Course Books

The first procedure we are going to see concerning making money at home free through buying and selling is to buy other students’ text books at the end of the academic year cheap since many will be happy to be rid of them. You could sell these to the new intake of students just after freshers’ week when they will be ready to pay well for them.

The trick is to advertise on campus or list the books on Amazon.co.uk Books Trade-In against commission for each book sold.

28. Sell Your Notes

Are those notes you took at last year’s lectures still intact? Like the old books above, they may no longer serve your needs but one person’s meat is another person’s poison. So why don’t you pass them on to students who will be prepared to pay for them?

You don’t really have to deal in person. Sites have been created for that purpose. All you have to do is upload your notes on to them and fix your price. Another student pays to download them and you get paid.

You may have to scan your handwritten notes to be able to upload them in PDF. But you just have to convert the typed ones into PDFs. These may make you more money.

Notesale is one of the sites where you can upload your notes in return for a cut of your profit.

29. Sell Your Old CDs, Games and Movies

The CDs, games and movies you loved so much collecting may be cluttering up your room now. Instead of letting the sight of them run you crazy, why don’t you let them bring some joy to your heart by selling them?

You love some of them, don’t you? Fortunately modern technology allows you to eat your cake and have it.

Download the songs and films onto your laptop or external hard drive before disposing of them.

The earning per item is not so great, but they can really add up if your collection is large. If they aren’t, why not add those of your parents? Old people usually have a lot of clutter lying about that they would be happy to see gone.

You can sell your CD, games, movies and almost any other thing for free on Amazon Trade-In or Preloved. MusicMagpie pays you instantly for sending in unwanted items.

30. Sell Your Knowledge

If you are at university level, you certainly are qualified to tutor students preparing for their GCSE or A-level certificates or High School diplomas.

One, you’ve cleared the hurdle where your students are right now.

Two, some students learn better being taught by people in their age brackets.

Three, there is nothing to make you a better student than teaching, especially in your field of study, even if at a lower level.

Four, this is a professional experience you can mention on your CV later.

Once you are confident teaching locally, you can decide to go global. Online tutor sites would make you do it without too much hassle.

You can also advertise on SchoolsTrader & UK Tutors.

N.B.: While the money comes in handy, your future lies in your education. So, reduce tutoring, or even stop it altogether, around your exams.

A domain name is what you find beyond the http://www. This website’s is secureyourfuturewithus.com. Following the very popular .com extension is the .net. Others such as .org or .edu are linked to institutions. Country-specific extensions also exist, such as .tg for my country Togo, .co.uk for the United Kingdom, .au for Australia, .br for Brazil, and .in for India.

A domains costs very little to register or renew. Mine cost $10.87 to register with NameCheap for a whole year. But sometimes people forget to renew their subscription or leave their domain name registration to expire for another reason. This is where you come in.

I think you have come across URLs that you clicked and at the end you saw “This domain is for sale.” Premium domain names can fetch $1,000s and even millions.

While those domains are not impossible to come by, what I am talking about here are ordinary domain names which have some commercial value. Searching online for them and then listing them for sale on a site like DomainLore can be an answer to the question “how can i make money online at home?

Others are Buy. Park. Sell. Domains Shop.domainrightnow

Let’s finish this section off with yet another free but legit way to make money from home with used books.

Go download the BookScouter app on your phone or simply head over to BookScouter.com.

Then look for garage sales or thrift shops and look for books in the used book sections that you can sell for higher prices.

This should not be difficult as many thrift stores sell their books for 50 cents or less while they are worth much more than that.

What you do is you scan the barcode with your phone (or enter the ISBN #) and then the app provides the prices that a bunch of book buyback sites are willing to pay for that particular book.

Some sites may be ready to buy a book for $3.60 that you bought for 50 cents, which is quite a huge profit.

As icing on the cake, most of the sites offer free shipping.
