Product Description

Amazon Review

While it doesn't share any real inside information about Internet auction sites, such as might be gleaned from a leader of such a site, The e.Auction Insider has a lot to say about buying and selling online. Authors Dave Taylor and Susan Cooney (Taylor runs, the auction-monitoring site) give advice on getting the best price for an item you're selling and dealing with shark-like last-second bidders--also known as snipers--when you're buying. They also detail how to safely contact the other parties in your transactions and the proper use of escrow services. Though a sizeable section is devoted to each of the main general-interest auction sites--eBay,, and Yahoo! Auctions--the emphasis falls solidly on eBay. Readers might wish for more coverage of variants on the auction theme, such as

The book concludes with a directory of general and special-interest auction sites that includes everything from (stickers, rubber stamps, and other scrapbook goods) to (guitars, amplifiers, lighting equipment, and that kind of thing). It describes each site--with more substance than you usually find in directories of sites--and reports on registration rules, as well as any fees that apply to buyers or sellers. Some of what this book contains is common sense, but a lot of it will prove new and worthwhile to many readers. --David Wall,

Topics covered: Buying and selling, safely and profitably, on Internet auction sites. How to list items; search for auctions; bid; monitor bid competitions; use escrow services to reduce your chance of being defrauded; and the specifics of auctions on eBay,, and Yahoo! Auctions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Answers to my online auction buying and selling questions 7 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on
This book not only tells how ebay functions, it also describes and rates a number of other auctions sites I didn't know existed. It explains all about buying and selling. Definitely a necessity for anyone thinking of selling on the net which seems more difficult to me than buying online. The book also has useful 'insider tips' boxed on the pages for added help. It also has figures showing how the actual online pages appear for various auction functions.If there is a comparable book available, I'm not aware of it. Well organized and most useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best e-auction book out there! 31 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Marvelous book - well written and takes all the fear out of going online to buy and sell at various e-auctions. Great book for beginners - it takes you through an auction step by step. For experienced folks it has great hints to increase your chances at winning auctions, plus a very good section on how to write descriptions of sale items to install confidence in buyers and get bids. Recommend this book to all Ebayers and other internet auction-goers.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great advices. 28 Dec 2004

Internet books usually have an "expiry date", because of the rapid changes. This book holds some timeless advices. It is an excellent guide, although on a general basis. The price is attractive as well!
