Many eBay sellers fail because they are so excited about making money they jump in without doing much research or preparation.

They might list an item and if it doesn't sell at the price they hope (or maybe the auction closes without the items selling at all), they give up. As with every business there are skills to operating so you improve your chances for success and we're here to help you develop some of those skills.

Spend a little time reading the articles on our website. We positively believe that by taking some time to do things right, you can join the thousands of others and enjoy a profitable business on eBay.

As an eBay seller, you can have a business without the overhead expense of a retail operation. If you already have a retail location, eBay can be another sales channel for your products.

You can sell just about anything you want. Take a look around your house and you can bet that for every item you see, one like it has probably been sold on eBay. Of course there are exceptions - after all, eBay is a family friendly marketplace. But the range and variety of products sold is astonishing, and if you've never explored eBay, you'll be amazed at what you can find for sale.

If you are serious about an eBay business there are two things you need to do right now. They will only take a few minutes and it will make things you read later on much clearer.

If you already have both of these accounts then why not take a look at eBay Abbreviations and Commonly Used Ebay Terms to give you a better understanding of how eBay operates.
