This book has told me everything I should know before using eBay. It has enabled me to avoid beginner's mistakes, and gave me confidence to begin selling. It is arranged logically, has an excellent reference index, and is very well written.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good "Starter Guide"--for us Dummies 9 April 2013
By J. Bristow - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the second of Ms. Collier's books I have read and this did not disappoint. While I have purchased stuff on eBay from time to time, I am far from being eBay-fluent. This guide helped me understand some of the details behind things about which I had wondered (mostly eBay backroom stuff). Armed with this book, I expect to recognize trends and be a more efficient purchaser; however, the main reason I liked the guide is I am about to start selling some unwanted but "very valuable" items -- sticking my toe in the seller side if you will. This guide will certainly help me with that.
As Marsha says several time, eBay is constantly changing screens and formats but the basics don't change much -- I tried to find several of the screens included as screen shots in the book and they were no longer relevant. Other than small things like that, the book is great if you understand that it is a BASIC guide. I skimmed about half the book and read the other half thoroughly. But if you need the very basic help ("what you need to get started", Defn of ISP, etc) it is here and described clearly and concisely. The reason for four stars is the number of outdated screen shots and I would have liked a little more info on intricacies of Paypal and other payment methods. Got a good intro but I wanted a bit more. Other than that it was well worth the price for me.

Well writen and understandable by a senior citizen. It leans toward the starting of an eBay business rather than being limited to just using eBay.
