Back in the late 90s, at the beginning of the dot com bubble, a man named Pierre Omidyar founded an online platform called AuctionWeb. Back then it was kind of an online fair for collectors who bought and sold various items online via bidding and auction. But within a decade, ActionWeb transformed itself, rebranded as eBay and become the giant multi-billion dollar e-commerce site where literally anyone, from 20-year-old college kid to 40-year-old moms can sell any kinds of goods online. eBay soon became the platform for professional online retailers worldwide, with operations spanning more than 30 countries.
For the past two decades, millions of people have been using eBay to earn some extra cash or to sell unused items which could be useful to others. There are people whose first introduction to eBay happened when they were clearing their room and found old vinyl LP records and when they used eBay to sell them, they found out they were worth more than $500! You would be amazed to know that how much an old He-man action figure is worth on eBay, or those Pokémon cards that you once used to collect but totally forgot about it. Some vintage collectors' items are worth $1,000-$20,000 now and if you own such rare items, thousands of dollars are just few mouse clicks away!
But all of these are just the tip of a huge iceberg. This is what people do when they want to sell second-hand items online. But eBay can offer more than that. It is a platform to build your own empire of successful e-commerce. When huge Internet enthusiast Pierre had the idea of eBay (the myth is that his wife influenced him to come up with this), his goal was to fill the gap in the market, a gap between potential buyers and sellers. He wanted to build a network so that both parties can communicate to each other freely and easily without any third party in between. So he built eBay (AuctionWeb) as a level playing field where similarly-minded people could come and share their interests and exchange products for cash. By the time Pierre came up with eBay, he was already a successful millionaire who sold his business to Microsoft and was yet to have his 30th birthday! So if you are confident and passionate enough, you can also become a successful entrepreneur, a trusted online retailer whose annual earning is a six figure amount (why not seven?). This book will guide you through a step by step process on the methods of selling, from basics to pro. You will learn secrets from already established sellers, tips, and tricks for successful selling and much more which will help you to become a super-seller in the eBay universe.
