Well, we finally received our Purple Star in Ebay last week. We are getting a lot better with our selection of items and we are definitely glad that we decided to stick to our strategy of selling overseas. The key is small, easy to wrap items already in boxes. That makes the work you have to do as easy as it gets. We have also been very successful with purchasing only a few items and then as they sell, get more. It sounds basic, but trust me; you get so caught up in all of the other aspects of running an Ebay store that you completely forget all of the basics.
The key to this site is transparency and we want to be completely open and hones with our posts.
GOING AWAY FOR A FEW DAYS??
4 guys spending and average of $70 bucks a pop and not a whisper, the ankle brace guy, “Hey when is my package shipping”. Typically they are from a big city so that explains the aggression.
Now, as soon as they purchase the item, if I can’t ship it the next day, I will send them an email with their expected package arrival date. That satisifieds the need to feel they are being serviced. Then when you get back you can ship the item priority, which is 2-3 business days and you will probably still be better then the date that you provided. Of course if the package is big then kill them with kindess and ship that bad boy parcel Post!!!
Till next time…..there’s money to be made!!!
