Short book but useful information that could make you rethink some of your listings. I have been selling for 11 years on Ebay, but have learnt a couple of things from the book, as I wasn't keeping abreast of how things have changed over the years, and how customers buying patterns have changed.

Although I have had a shop on eBay for a while and am a new PowerSeller (before I read the book) there were parts of this book that I found very useful such as the PayPal merchant account for reduced fees. However like another reviewer said the rest of it is mainly good business sense. This is a very easy to read book written in plain English, suitable for anybody wanting to make a bit of money on eBay, but it isn't a quick fix - selling successfully on eBay will take time and perseverance but the advice in this book will point you in the right direction. I found it a good quick read to freshen up my approach to selling on eBay.

Many years ago I was selling my own products through mail order, before the internet even existed, and therefore have a reasonably good idea of the running of such an impersonal business. However, as completely new to trading on-line, I found this book packed with information that would have taken considerable time to acquire. Admittedly a lot of the content is common sense but, for someone just starting out, it helps avoid pitfalls and maximizes profit margins from the outset. Were I to have started an on-line business before reading this book, I would have found myself having to learn from experience and modify the admin. of such a business on the hoof instead of concentrating on sales, which is the primary reason for on-line trading in the first place.

I found at least 25 extremely valuable points in this book, particularly helpful for those new to trading; had I found only one useful point, I would certainly still have considered it exceptional value for the £0.60 I paid for the KIndle edition.

I.M.O., a well written and easily understood book that I would recommend to anyone starting out in this business.

How useful this book is will depend on how familiar you are with selling on ebay. Certainly there are some good tips and some of the information could make a real difference to the viability of an ebay business, such as the micro accounts on paypal. Much of the book I would regard as good business sense. For example packaging to fall just below the post office price band, checking accounts to ensure that charges haven`t crept in, buying goods at a cheap time such as just after Christmas and running listings over weekends so that more people are likely to view them. This was free on kindle which is ok because I wouldn`t have wnted to pay for it.

I found this book helpful, plenty of useful tips explained clearly and succinctly.

The author assumes you'll have an Ebay shop, so quite a few of the tips (e.g. auto relist) aren't available to casual sellers.

This has some good basic information for anyone that's starting out on selling in ebay although one section is out dated as ebay have got rid of pulse but other than that a good informative read.

One of only a few books that actually give you practical tips that you can use. The author also practices what he preaches so you believe what he's saying.

I am still learning about Ebay and deciding if I can find niche.

I have read both of Roberts Book and find them informative on selling real products.

Most gurus I have come across just want to talk about selling other E books on how to make money on Ebay or on line

Robert also publishes a newsletter which is informative and he does not try to sell you anything.

I would strongly recommend both of Roberts Books

Good for inspiring a beginner like me with minimal IT skills. Covers time and money saving tools as well as how to find and actually use them, which is what a technically challenged person like myself needs! Think I will give it a go and perhaps try authors other book.

A load of tips from a powerseller with years of experience. Best suited for beginners, but possibly some good advice on things more experienced sellers may have overlooked. New sellers should invest in this to help them improve their sales & business.
