After you make your business a success and if you are trading locally I suggest you to go global. There are hundreds and thousands of people having fun and making money and you will miss on that if you restrict yourself to just your own country. But again it all depends on you. Make sure that you follow the custom regulations of your country. Call your local office for import, export and other legalities. After finishing reading this book you can decide for yourself. A word of caution here that every auction site has their own rules and regulations. Respect and follow them carefully.
Internet Auctions is an honest market. No one knows each other except by individual feedbacks and profile. Some very few unscrupulous traders still hang around who cheat the buyers and vice a versa. But they can't stay there for long. If you come across them just report them to the auction site. Those honest traders who are here to stay would never cheat. They know that they are building a long term business. There are some buyers who buy a lot from auctions, pay everyone but forget to pay a couple. Give them a chance and remind them. If they don't return your emails let the auction site know. If you have a suitable reason you will get a refund for your selling fee.
Always stay in touch with your buyers by emails. Thank them straight away after you receive their money. That builds confidence and trust.
