1). A Lesson At The Flea Market
For those of you that don't know, I started my business 9 years ago at the flea market. I think back of all the fun that I had and when I started selling off odds and ends that I had around the house.
After being there for a while I noticed something quickly, that I could buy certain products from the "newbies" who were coming in and t...
2). Are You Holding Onto Too Much Product?
We all love to make money but after a while when you get too much product built up, you can start losing money. Why would we do that?
What happens is we get in a mindset on the value we feel our items are worth, rather than what we can get for them. That's why when purchasing items it's important to keep in mind that you make money whe...
3). Do You Have An Ebay Store?
In this article we look at the benefits of having an eBay Store. Selling on eBay does not require you to have an eBay Store, but it sure does make things a lot easier.
There are 3 store subscriptions you can sign up for with eBay Basic (15.95/month), Featured (49.95/month), & Anchor (499.95/month).

4). Free Bubble Wrap & Popcorn
Where to find it, What to do with it
Bubble wrap is a great way to securely send your items to make sure they arrive at their destination intakt. But when you go into an office supply store it can be quite expensive.
Here in Canada, bags of packing popcorn can be around $8-10.00! So where can we all find this FREE bubble ...
5). Protect Your Auction Business
One thing about eBay that a lot of people don't know is that you can have multiple user id's. Which means you can have more than 1 eBay account.
Here is why I feel it's important to have more than one user id. When you're selling on eBay with a certain id, you can focus it to a specific niche. You can keep it to the same products you ...
6). Public Domain Information
Using Public Domain information is an easy way to create products and then sell them in the form of ebooks, reports, or create content for your website. If you haven't noticed, there are tons of ebooks for sale on eBay.
Some of these ebooks are just thrown out there at a penny. I believe a lot of these sellers are just looking to incr...

Here are some excellent ways to market that you're a Trading Assistant.
First off, you want to make sure you list the fact you are a TA in ...
8). Unlimited Products
Did you ever think about becoming a Trading Assistant? Where you basically sell other people's products and receive a comission? Alot of companies know about eBay but don't have the time to learn. Or are just "old school" and don't care to learn.
So why not offer your services to them? You already know eBay. And now this lines you up f...
9). When A Customer Only Sends Half Of Their Payment
When a customer only sends you half of their payment do I mean they're sending you half of the total payment? No, I mean something different. Half of a payment is the full payment itself, and the other half is the Item Number of the auction.
When you're selling on eBay the Item Number is just as important as the actual payment itself, ...
10). Your Auction Business & Taxes
Taxes is an issue when running an Auction Business. But is there a grey line when it comes to declaring it?
It's really within reason if you're going to do a huge amount of it, a small amount is negligible.
Some people want to have a small business for write-offs, you might want to consider taking it to the next level and ...
