"Wedding Only Months away...Find it on eBay" My Wedding was only months away. I couldn't find the perfect Flower Girl baskets, and Wedding favors that match my color scheme. I was running around like a chicken with her head cut off. After all I was only planning the most important day of my life…”My Wedding”! A good friend of mines told me to look on eBay. I said eBay, what in the world is that? That is when it all started. I bought all my Wedding Accessories and even some Wedding gifts all on eBay. If you need anything from food to a car…you can find it on eBay! After I found the things I needed for my wedding…I was HOOKED!!! After I came back from my Honeymoon (in the Pocono’s)…I sold my Flower Girl Basket back on eBay. I got more for the Basket than when I had bought it. Well, I thought, this is great…I started pulling dinner plates off the shelves in my cabinets, my books, shoes. I began Spring-Cleaning…then Winter-Cleaning. My new husband was like what in the world are you doing…he told me not to go into his closet and sell all his clothes. He was like “Who Did I Just Marry”? We had a good laugh about it! Talk about making money on eBay…that was exactly what I had started doing. I made Gas-Money, Mad-Money, Shopping-Mall Money, and College-Student Money (they always need extra money). It is so easy to get started. You can start by searching for certain items that are interest to you. You will see something’s that you would like to purchase…go ahead and buy them. Most eBayers like to have buyers who have at least 10 feedbacks to their name. Feedbacks are what your Sellers and Buyers say about you. Whether you are a fast-payer (when buying) or a fast-shipper (when selling); with each auction, buyers and sellers can rate each other by leaving Feedback.
The Feedback consists of a positive, negative, or neutral rating, and a short comment. Feedback has scores and stars. Feedback ratings are used to determine each member's Feedback Score. A positive rating adds one point to the Feedback Score. A neutral rating has no impact on the Feedback Score. A negative rating subtracts one point from the Feedback. Once you start selling…try to specialize in one or two items. Learn as much as you can about your items. This will help you become a great seller. Customers love it – if you know what you are talking about! They will begin to trust you with their time and money. The “Site Map” on the eBay homepage has a wealth of knowledge, and will answer the majority of your questions…whether you are buying or selling. Make sure you down load “Turbo Lister”. eBay Turbo Lister is a FREE listing tool to help you upload and edit items in bulk, and create professional-looking listings. This tool was a great help to me…when I was on “Dial-Up”. You can list items and not be online while you are doing it. You can still answer your phone calls and list your items at the same time! One of the greatest tax-write off…is having eBay as a home-based business. You can write off the items you have purchased, your eBay and paypal fees and so much more.
