Product Description

Review

"....Also just published specifically for eBay.co.uk, rather than the US version, is the Dummies guide to Starting a Business on eBay.co.uk, which covers topics including: setting–up shop, running successful auctions, delivering goods, keeping customers happy and maximising profits..." ( The Times Online, May 2006)

"...worth a look whether you want to operate a sideline or a full–blown business..." (The Guardian, June 2006)

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the cover 1 Feb. 2007
Format:Paperback
An excellent read. Thorough, easy to read, comprehensive without being patronising, PLUS aimed towards eBay.co.uk, so no American jargon and legislation to wade through. I read it in two days and now can't wait to get started! Keep it by your PC to refer to when starting up your own eBay business, you'll need it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Out of date 9 Jun. 2008
Format:Paperback
Having looked at eBay's own help pages and read this book I can say that the book is so out of date it is more or less useless!
There is no mention of eBay business accounts, apparently this type of account is a legal obligation for ANY eBay business.
The web-sites referenced in the book are mostly non-existant and tools recommended have all been replaced with updated versions.

Use the eBay help pages instead, at least then you can't go wrong with your buisness.

5.0 out of 5 stars I liked this book 20 Jan. 2008
Format:Paperback
I bought this book for a friend, had a read through, and liked it.
A good reference guide for UK Ebayers and should be kept within reach for both newbies and more experienced sellers.
Don't make the mistake that this book will give you a business, good advice is to get a business idea and buy books like this to give you the information to exploit your idea.
Worth the asking price...recommended.
