How do you invest in an expensive item or eBay or on Amazon? Can some people not afford certain items?

If an item on eBay is expensive, how do you invest in it, if it is over $350, for example? Can some people not afford expensive items for sale on eBay or Amazon?

    OK spending is not investing.

    For big ticket spending items I save up for them. I have savings account buckets (capitalone360.com - you can make sub-accounts with different names) for electronics, my remodeling plans, travel, etc. For really big ticket items (my next car, upscaling to a nicer home, my mortgage payoff) I have equity investment accounts. I just add to the various accounts out of my budget based on my financial plan.

    You can't. Nothing listed on eBay or Amazon is listed to invest in. It is "for purchase only". If you can't afford it, then you don't buy it.

    You don't invest in it, you buy it. If you don't have the money, you don't buy it. It doesn't get any simpler than that. Of course there are people who can't afford to buy lots of things.
