    This book starts off explaining how to open an eBay account and list your first item. It then tells you that a great place to source your eBay store is from thrift stores. From there, it goes on to explain which location to shop at and what times not to shop during. From there, it begins to describe the different kinds of items that sell well on eBay and a little bit about ways to determine their worth and what to pay attention to when browsing items at thrift stores to ensure you aren’t wasting valuable money for an item that ultimately will not sell for the money you thought you might have gotten for it. It then goes on to describe pretty much the basics of creating a good description for each item you list. It tells you what is most important and what to focus on the most. It helps you determine how to attract more people with your listings, which, as we all know, is the most important part of getting the money desired for an item you list! Especially if you are starting the price ridiculously low, which I personally am not a fan of (and have not always had the best luck with!) All in all, this is a good book for beginners. It’s not for the expert seller and it definitely doesn’t measure up to its title of learning how to make $10,000 per month selling items. It just tells you what to basically seek out. Personally, I have been selling on eBay for over 10 years now but mostly only with clothing. So, as a result of reading this book (and watching a couple of unrelated YouTube videos), I have found some interesting things to begin looking for when I venture out for a day of shopping. This book is short and worth reading for the ideas you will get but keep in mind you can find this information elsewhere in more detail as well. So read this book first and then build from there. Find another eBook to read to get deeper, more valuable information, and like this author suggests, do some deep (i.e. time consuming) searching on eBay too. As for me, I’d rather be shopping!  One more thing: At the end of this book (which just happens to be my favorite part) the author ends with 24 great tips for selling on eBay. These are simple, basic, and for the most part, already well known, however, they are all extremely important to remember and worth the money just to read those! Good luck on your eBay adventure! It’s very exciting, I promise you that! (Despite also taking a little bit of harmless, old fashioned hard work!)

    I would be disappointed if I had paid for this book, August 21, 2015

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This book would only prove useful If you was a true beginner who has been stripped down to the basics. The first half of the book is filled with generic information which could be found online. It does suggested an area to source your items from but if you are interested in starting selling on eBay, I guarantee that you will have already thought to purchase items from Thrift/Charity shops. I suppose the book does show you how to get your account up and running but the $10,000 per month earning value is very ambitious considering the substance of the information.

    It’s a fantastic book for beginners!, June 9, 2015

    This book is great for someone new to the eBay game! I enjoyed it but I’ve used eBay for over a decade and I’m currently a store owner and a power seller. If you looking for a book to give you precision details about advanced eBay use, this is not the book. This book has a great overview of how eBay works and is well written and easy to understand.
