Easy? Profitable? They were lying. It's tedious and hard to make a profit. The reason you have link in a credit card is that sellers must be 18 and must pay fees if they sell something. If you have no money to start with, don't get on eBay. Paypal freezes funds for 3 weeks if you are new seller. They worry that you won't ship and they'll have to refund the buyer.

If you are a merchant and can accept payment from credit cards you dont have to use Paypal. Ebay doesnt take payments, Paypal transfers payments from a buyer to your Paypal account. Electronics is always in demand. I dont know what fees Ebay stores pay but individuals pay 9% sales fee and 3% Paypal fee.

eBay charges fees to sell. You need either a credit card or a PayPal account to pay for these fees. eBay requires that you accept buyers paying you via PayPal so you need to create an account. You can link either a credit card or a bank account to PayPal. Both eBay and PayPal charge fees to use their service. eBay charges a listing fee and that cost depends on the options you choose when you create your listing plus a final value fee which is about 9% of the sale price. PayPal charges you 35 cents plus 2.9%. PayPal holds the buyers money for around 21 days when you are new. So you have to pay shipping costs out of your own pocket first. You need to read all the rules about both so you don't get any unwelcome surprises.
