Interested in making extra money on the side? Who isn’t! If you enjoy comic books, flipping comic books for profit could be a great fit for you. But there are many other factors to consider before jumping right in and making some investments.

Here’s a list of things you should consider prior to deciding to buy and sell comic books for cash:

Do You Truly Enjoy Comic Books?

You don’t necessarily need to love comic books in order to successfully flip them for a profit, but it certainly does make the process much easier and much more enjoyable. Like any side hustle, it takes a lot of hard work, especially in the beginning. If you don’t absolutely love comic books, the process could become less and less fun for you, which puts you at risk for giving it up for something else.

Have You Flipped Items For Profit Before?

At the end of the day, flipping anything for a profit is more or less the same process- buy low and sell high. Within that process takes a lot of different skill sets, know-how and experience. If you’ve successfully flipped things before you’re one step ahead of the competition and know what to expect. Never flipped anything before? That’s ok too! Just be sure to start small and think of this just as much as a learning experience as it is a source of income until you really get the hang of things.

Do You Need This Additional Income To Survive?

Flipping comic books can be a very unstable and unpredictable source of income unless you’re doing it at a very large scale. If you need this stream of income to survive, you should treat it more so as a business instead of a side gig. That means you’ll need to have systemic, repeatable processes in place, a lot of working capital to buy and market your items for sale, potentially hire help and be prepared to work hard. And even then, income isn’t guaranteed. It’s much less stressful if this source of income is just seen as extra money and not necessary income.
