Repeat customers already know you, your business and the products that you market. Gaining the repeat sales that come from those loyal and satisfied customers is one of the best ways to make money no eBay. But how does an entrepreneur go about moving buyers to the list of repeat customers that make that difference?

While there are many pieces that all come together to create that relationship, they really fall into three main categories. Excellent communication, over-delivering and trust all come together to start sellers down the path to that relationship. Those three categories when repeated time and again create relationships that make money on eBay.

Communication is one of the keys to make money on eBay. Prospective buyers need to be able to count on sellers to provide all of the information that is required for them to make their buying decision. That includes complete information about items that are being sold. Timely and complete answers to all questions, instant information when purchases are made and follow-up communication throughout the payment and shipping process are included. Then there is the follow-up that comes with a simple ‘thank you’ inside the package when the product arrives.

Another step toward the goal to make money on eBay is over-delivering. This comes in many forms. It might include adding a small FREE extra item to the shipment. This works best when the FREE item relates to the item that was purchased. It might be providing a small discount on shipping for loyal customers. It might be by providing FREE gift wrapping when the item is being delivered as a gift or for a special event. The list is as big as your imagination. The little extras all give the message that you are over-delivering and that you appreciate your eBay buyers.

The most important step in building a base of loyal customers is being trustworthy. To make money on eBay means that every buyer can count on you to perform as committed. Everything that you write in descriptions and answers is absolutely accurate. When you say that a package will ship today, that happens. The list of actions that build trust is as long as all of the interactions that you directly and indirectly have with your buyers and prospective buyers.

Build a base of loyal, satisfied buyers and you are on your way to make money on eBay. Give it a try!

To your eBay success!
