Chris from MyBadgeApp had a day to day job but decided to plunge onto making a side eBay business for some extra cash, starting from purchasing a £100 badge maker and some tough work, he now has over 30,000 total sales. Ranging from nearly every type of button design available Chris runs a successful eCommerce business. He made his eBay store in 2005 but didn’t actively use it for his MyBadgeApp business until 2012 to the point where he takes 1000 orders a month easily.
Some thoughts from the interview
“It was by accident really. I started on eBay just trying to supplement my income when I was working full time selling odds and ends”
“It started off by popping into the pound shops and having a look to see if there was anything on the shelves that looked more than a pound but that was just for a tiny bit of pocket money really.”
