How To Save Franchise Fees and Set Up Your Own Ebay Drop Off Store
There has been a flood of publicity generated regarding the "Small Business Opportunity" being offered to would be internet entrepreneurs.
The plan is for you to purchase a franchise operation to sell products on consignment via eBay. Selling on consignment means you take a customer's product into your business, and pay the client the balance of the sales proceeds when and if the item sells.
The parent company guides you through the process of setting up a brick and mortar type of store located in a strip mall or similar location, and shows you how to attract customers using traditional advertising methods by which you sell their items on eBay. Your income is generated after all the fees are subtracted from the franchiser and eBay, along with the related standard business expenses listed below.
All of these items are considered overhead or business operating expenses:
To start an eBay Consignment Business using this method, you will first be charged a Setup Fee ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 depending on the franchise you choose. There is also a range of fees to be paid to the Franchiser on every sale. You need to do the math for this type of operation after paying the franchise and setup fees to see if it is viable.
Setting Up An eBay Consignment Auction The Right Way
Eliminate the rental or lease and work out of your home. You can easily rent a storage facility for $50-$100/month to store your products, and you can meet your clients there. Remember, they do not expect or need an elaborate storefront; they want their items sold quickly with the least amount of effort.
You can obtain inexpensive insurance to cover the items in your storage facility. Advertise your eBay Consignment Service in local newspaper classified ads for under $20/week, and receive more products than you can handle.
Sign up for the eBay Trading Assistant Program (See my article titled How To Have eBay Send You Less Than Wholesale Product Sources). You will be provided with leads directly from eBay to you.
Obtain an Agreement of Items, which both you and the customer sign. These are available for under $29 at Legal Resource Online.
See the list below for Items to target in local classified ads. Indicate in your ad that you will sell items for "No Fee Charged - Pay Small Percentage of Sale"
* Computer Hardware/Software
Services You Offer To Your Customer:
1. Inspect their product to make sure it is acceptable for sale.
2. Take photos of their product; then write the copy and design a professional ad and place it on eBay.
3. When the product is sold, process the payment securely, taking outyour percentage, in addition to the shipping and handling charges.
4. If the product does not sell after placing the first ad,it is relisted at no charge.
If the product doesn't sell the second time, it can either be picked up by the customer, or donated to charity.
5. Packaging and shipping the product to the eBay buyer.
6. Mailing checks to the customer.
Setting up an eBay Consignment Business the correct way can allow you to start generating income in a short amount of time with limited expense!
