Here's my 2 cents, I too have been a member
of ebay since 1999. After all these years I finally opened
a ebay store and a few months (9) of having a store, I decided to close it. Not worth the money.
Ebay has been a constant drain on my finances. I know I am negative but its very difficult to become a power seller if you don't have a lot of money. Simply, because you sometimes have to list an item serveral times just to get good page postioning. Each time costing you.
Here's an example: I lisited a LCD Flat Screen 17' starting price 98.00 no reserve. Went 7 Days
without anybody looking at the item. (No Sales).
I listed it on U-bid this time at 125.00 starting price. Bingo sold all four in one day.
I know Jimmy is a powerseller on ebay but I'm sure he lost a lot money before becoming a powerseller. Ask him.
Everytime I see someone asking/wanting to start selling on ebay, I want to warning them. Dispite what everyone thinks, it is not that easy. Some people think, I'll list and sell and become rich. Think twice.
There ia an informorcial on TV, that claims if you buy there program you'll become a powerseller in no time, boy do people fall for that! Sad they alllow it.
Thats my in-put on ebay.
