TOP 500 REVIEWERon 5 April 2013
My wife recently decided to have a go at selling our unwanted, no longer needed or 'unloved' items on eBay and quickly ran into the problem that for the 'newbie', eBay is not very helpful or consistent in providing assistance or guidance. I had run into the same problem a while ago and given up, but my wife decided to persevere, so I bought her this book.
It really is a very useful guide to starting out with buying and selling on eBay, highlighting the dos and don'ts in a fairly logical and straightforward manner with loads of useful hints and tips about starting out in the on-line auction world. This book will help you get the basics right first time and save you loads of grief and wasted time. If you have not really dabbled in eBay before, then be prepared to spend a bit of time (a couple of hours maybe) going through the book to get a 'feel' for eBay and what is needed to be a respected buyer or seller.

The downsides of the book are -
1. That some of the illustrations are a bit small and difficult to read, especially for us of a certain age. I found myself reaching for a magnifying glass at one stage, for heaven's sake!!
2. It does not help with some of the more tricky questions that you will come up against as a seller (we have already found ourselves scouring the internet for answers to some of the more obscure things we have come up against when selling). I suppose I should not be too harsh, as this book is entitled 'eBay.co.uk for Dummies', but it does have a fair bit of information about selling on eBay as a business, which to my mind does not come under the 'Dummies' category.

Apart from these two small gripes, this is a great book to get you started with eBay and my wife has found it invaluable as a quick reference to get things right first time. It has most definitely paid for itself already, a few times over.

I suppose we should now put in eBay for sale!!

Oh, one final thing, make sure you buy the latest edition, as things change so rapidly on the eBay website.

Happy buying and selling!!

Full of very useful information and while it isn't an instruction manual how to make money on ebay....it does give you some very sound information on which to start with. Definitely glad I bought this one!

As a newbie to Ebay I have found this book really useful. I have consulted it many times when selling items. It is great that it is available for the kindle too

A good book for anyone considering trading on ebay.
Disappointed to find the same book at half price at a local retail park bookshop

Good for anyone who is confused about how to use ebay. Easy to understand. You won't become an expert overnight but this will be a big help.

Bought this because I needed to learn about how to sell in ebay and previous 'Dummy' books have really helped. They talk my language!
