On a totally different topic do you know how to find the value of your items on eBay? If you have taken one of my classes you know research is the number one key to a successful sale. If you are ready to sell an item and don't know the value give me a call today and I can either signed you up for a class or get your item listed. Being realistic and setting the price correctly will help yield the maximum return on your auction.
Hope you all have a fantastic week and thank you again for taking the time to help me!
Do you love estate/yard sales? Have you always wondered what makes a sale run smoothly? There are lots of things that go on behind the scene for a profitable and successful estate or yard sale. Estate sales can be lots of fun if you are organized and plan ahead. I can use volunteers to sort, price, bag, display items, help at the check out, etc. Heavy lifting is not required. If this sounds like something you would like to do and would like to be added to my volunteer list or just get more information on how you can help please email me today firstname.lastname@example.org or call me 530-693-0386.
EBay Policy Changes
If you are a Top Rated Seller eBay is requiring that you offer a 90 day return policy with the items you sell in order to maintain your status instead of 14 days. I like the fact that as a Buyer I can start shopping early in November for Christmas gifts for my family and friends. If they don't like the gift then I have till the end of January to return the item and get my money back (minus shipping). I DO NOT like this policy as a Seller because it will mean the items I sell for other people as a Trading Assistant in November and December my clients will have to wait until the second week of February to get paid. EBay feels this will encourage more sales overall and buyers can buy with confidence. To read more about this policy read here. The percentage of returns has not been that high in the past but it will change my business practices. If I currently have an item listed for you and you do not want it listed during November and December please email me at email@example.com and let me know by October 10, 2014. You can also give me a call at 530-693-0386 to discuss the pro's and con's of having your items listed during the holiday season.
