How to Survive the Jungles of Ebay Selling
Come with me, we are going to take a safari into the jungles of eBay selling, sometimes wrought with danger but most often rewarded with treasure.
Beware of non-paying bidders, beware of auction snipers waiting to try and steal your eBay auction at a very low bid, but welcome the loot you will receive selling outdated relics in your house for a small kings ransom.
Sell the heirlooms that even Salvation Army drop off center would turn their nose up at.
Upon our journey we may encounter savvy eBay buyers lurking in the Internet shadows and waiting to pounce like a ravenous lion on novice eBay sellers.
Slashing and cutting your path through the eBay sales jungle is no small undertaking, let me be your guide through this sometimes-perilous journey.
Remember the moose head that was the family joke when we went to visit grandpa Jim at the cabin every fall. The very same moose head that now sits front and center in our family room. As this was the sum total of our inheritance as our dear grandpa passed last spring. Putting Old Grandpa Jims moose head up for sale and successfully selling it to a corn farmer from Iowa for $300 was nothing short of a revelation.
Not only did the moose head eBay sale fulfill the farmer's dream of a big game trophy without firing a shot, but also it unloaded from our hands an item that was flat out rejected by our local charities.
After dropping the monstrous 400-pound beasts head at the UPS packing store counter my brother and I exchanged high fives.
We could only think of 1 word that would adequately describe the value of selling on eBay to our household PRICELESS!
One early Saturday morning, I was being dragged unmercifully by my mother to some local garage sales. Fumbling around in a near incoherent state I spotted on old wooden hand crank phone, it was marked for sale at $30 being in a fowl mood I haggled the sheepish sellers down to $10.Upon placing the old wooden hand crank phone up for sale on eBay a bidding war broke out on the old antique phone, even I was amazed at the final sales price of over $650.
On vacation with his wife and needing to kill some time as his spouse was getting her nails done, Robert wandered into thrift store that was located next door.
Robert spotted on the wall and old looking parchmentwith what looked top be foreign handwriting of some kind the document was priced at only $8 so Robert snatched up what he thought to be a valuable treasure.
Robert was a certified pack rat according to his wife, returning next store his jubilation turned to dismay as his wife slowly shook her head with disgust as looked at the item he just purchased. She demanded he get rid of it immediately. Robert dejectedly took it home and decided to put it for sale on eBay. His wife's displeasure turned to glee as the $8 thrift shopped document item ended up selling for the ridiculous price of $2600.
