Pew Study on Internet Selling

The Pew Internet and American Life Project recently published a study (Study: pdf-longer, html-brief) regarding selling goods online. There are a few interesting findings here and some painfully obvious ones as well. The most stark statistical fact, for me, was that nearly twice as many people from the $50,000 income level sold goods online than the under $30,000 income level. Given the broad scope of the study, it is not surprising that they find that classified sites (Craigslist) and auction sites (eBay) are the most popular methods of selling online.
