Of the millions of eBayers, the vast majority are buyers. In 20 Questions to Ask Before Buying on eBay, shoppers will learn it all'from how to get started, how to search for an item, and how to ?etch? an item; to how to place a bid, how to not get outbid, what happens when the auction ends, and the importance of feedback.
This user-friendly book shows you how to turn the satisfaction and excitement of eBay sales into a lucrative small business--and possibly even a full-time job! Find out how to establish a seller’s account, post attention-getting auction listings, and build confidence among bidders. Author Greg Holden explains how to apply the secrets of successful brick and mortar businesses to the online world. After learning the ropes, you'll find out how to boost sales with techniques such as no-reserve selling and “buy it now” pricing. Plus--tips for locating inventory, implementing marketing plans, and getting free advertising are revealed.
Online auction site eBay has exploded since its inception, and now its motor vehicle sales arm is exploding as well. If you've bought or sold items on eBay before, you have some idea of the process, but buying or selling a vehicle over an online auction is more involved than selling your mother's teakettle. The buyer needs to know what to look for and what to watch out for above and beyond the ordinary considerations of buying a vehicle. And for the seller, descriptions, photos, and most other details are much more involved than when selling other ordinary items on eBay.
