Weekend Book Review – The eBay Business Handbook

Beat the recession with an eBay business. Anyone can buy and sell on eBay, that’s one of the great things about it and one of the reasons it has become such a success and a regular part of so many people’s lives. But how many people actually make serious money from eBay? And how can they generate significant revenue or give up the day job and run an eBay business full time?

Robert Pugh has done just that and in this fully updated and revised edition of his eBay Business Handbook he reveals the secrets of his success. Robert covers everything you need to know about succeeding on eBay; from the basics such as choosing your eBay user ID through to the creation and management of your own business. It includes details on sales, marketing and business processes and gives you the information you need to use eBay to its full potential, to maximise returns and develop a robust online business.

This book has been written for anyone who has ever considered the idea of owning their own business and being their own boss. Whether you want to supplement an existing income – potentially invaluable right now – or you want a complete change in life, this book is for you, giving you the confidence and knowledge you need to make that step. Written in plain English, this guide does not require the reader to have a grasp of complex computer or business jargon; all that is required is a desire to succeed and an open mind.

Unlike other eBay guides, this handbook is based on the personal experiences of an established PowerSeller. Everything from the practical concerns of international sales to the purchase of packing materials is covered here. With a fresh, common sense approach to selling, the book includes many hints, tips and personal recommendations that can be applied to all of your eBay activities, making this book essential reading for both experienced and non-experienced eBayers alike.

Perhaps one of the most valuable sections is the one dedicated to finding stock to sell. Where traders obtain their stock is a closely guarded secret and often finding where to buy can be quite daunting. This guide will tell you where to look, how to buy from different sources and, the most interesting of all, how to use eBay as a source of goods.

Discover how the author has successfully sold in excess of 36,000 items. From his very first LP record to the family car and even the kitchen sink, he has sold items into almost every corner of the globe, taken every form of payment known to man, and personally packed a huge range of items. Anybody can do this, just follow the steps in this guide, dedicate the time, and soon you too could be living the eBay dream.

The book is written in a very friendly manner, is easy to understand and is a total minefield of information. What’s more, it is written in a style that makes it appear as though a friend is guiding you through the pages. If you are thinking about purchasing a book about how to succeed on Ebay – don’t look any further as they don’t come better than this!
