Jay and Ryanne discuss the Pros and Cons of the eBay Global Shipping Program. We love the full tracking, shipping to Kentucky, and the seller protection. What we don’t love is potential lost sales, some of which we’ve had already. How will the Global Shipping Program pan out for sellers? Have you tried it? What do you think? Leave a comment and let us know!
We sold a lamp from our eBay store to the set designer of Mad Men. And look, there it is!
Jay and Ryanne talk about an exciting week in their eBay store. Seeing a mid-century lamp debut on Ted’s desk on Mad Men a few months after it was purchased by Mad Men set designer Claudette Didul. Also, after many years of putting everything at Fixed Price, Buy It Now, they decide to put a necklace on auction and it grosses enough to pay their mortgage for a month!
The best way to get started on eBay is to clean your closet and sell some of your own stuff.
Mikey and Ryanne discuss the long list of tips for new eBay sellers. There is a huge learning curve of stuff to avoid and remember and this podcast will explain it all from shipping to descriptions. We tell you how to follow other ebayers, where to source your items, how to avoid being a hoarder, avoiding the post office and much more!
