Today marks the first of our new series of monthly blog posts where we showcase you, our faithful members, by shining the spotlight on you and your business.
It's a great way to get to know other SaleHoo members and acknowledge the hard work that goes into running an online retail business.
This month we introduce Pat, a successful eBay Store owner and Amazon seller. Check out her profile below:
Forum username: Tall Patti
What items do you sell?
Ladies' accessories (purses, lingerie, scarves and shawls), printer ink, coins, hammered aluminum, and books.
I am also helping my parents downsize and I am selling many items for them. Soon I hope to start selling for other individuals that want to downsize. You never know what they will come up with for you to sell. It keeps the creative juices flowing!
Where do you sell them?
I sell books on Amazon through their fulfillment program, and all other items on eBay.
How long have you been a member of SaleHoo, and what do you like most about it?
A couple of years. The site is a goldmine of suppliers. I like the feedback from other members, and the forum information. Also, that the suppliers have been checked out for legitimacy and are easy to find on the site.
What one piece of advice do you have for other sellers?
Find something you enjoy working with. Even if you know nothing about it, you will become an expert in time.
What was the biggest obstacle you've had to overcome in selling online?
What's your favorite thing about making money from selling items online?
When selling on eBay you can be so diversified, you work your own hours from your own home or office, and you can change products if you need to. You can even be seasonal.
When selling on Amazon, I LOVE books so it is a pleasure to work with them and the fulfillment program takes the work out of it while giving me more time to search for my books.
