Whats included in my membership fee?
There are many avenues of how you can make money from eBay, from selling your own goods, by becoming an eBay Trading Assistant or by referring eBay to friends & family acting as an affiliate to eBay.
So what does the membership site focus on. Is it all of the above (and more ideal!) or is it purely a site for selling on eBay. This is not necessary a bad thing, as long as the membership site focuses on your needs.
Ask yourself what your needs are. Do you want to
