Publisher's Summary

This program is for both beginners who have never used eBay and experienced eBay users who have been buying and selling for years. I see both experienced and new members making mistakes that cost them money as buyers and sellers. Everyone will learn something from this program. I call it a program and not a book because it is more than a story or quick reference. It is a complete system that will make your eBay experience much safer and more enjoyable not to mention more profitable. EBay is a really fun place to buy, sell, and meet other people. You have to understand how it works to gain the most from it.
The first part of this program is this book which explains the in's and out's of eBay and PayPal. The second part is the Scams and Scoundrels book which helps you avoid scams. The third part is the Don't Bid on It Video which demonstrates how to setup your account, how to bid and win auctions, as well as how to sell items.
We will also discuss PayPal extensively. PayPal is the payment system used on eBay. We could never discuss eBay fully without covering PayPal.
Even if you are already on eBay, I encourage you to go through the beginner and account setup sections. You will find many tips and tricks. This advice will not only improve your eBay experience, it will help protect you from criminals.
As a buyer, you will learn how to determine the amount to bid, how to place the most effective bids that can win, how to obtain the best price and how to pick trustworthy sellers. As a seller, you will learn how to setup auctions that will attract the most interested buyers, how to answer questions before they are asked, how to present a professional and trust inspiring auction listing, how to avoid fraudulent bidders, plus many more tips you will need to be a top notch eBay'er.
Topics include:

eBay and PayPal account setup (for maximum security);
Searching Techniques (find the best deals);
How bidding works (how it really works);
Evaluating sellers (find honest and trustworthy sellers by looking beyond feedback);
Buying and Selling strategies;
Feedback (protecting your feedback and how to use feedback correctly);
Taking photos that gain your auctions the most bids;
Shipping made simple;
And much much more.
Out of my tens of thousands of transactions using eBay and PayPal, I have had very few bad experiences. The majority of eBay users are honest people interested in making a legitimate transaction.
You do not have to jump in to the fire all at once. You can and should start small. Buy a few items here and there as you need them. Then sell an item or two that you no longer need. These small transactions will quickly help you to gain experience and confidence in using eBay. After completing this program, your friends will be coming to you for advice.
We talk about everything other authors are afraid to talk about. The Don't Bid on It series (Don't Bid on It, Scams and Scoundrels, and the Demonstration Video) covers many topics not covered in ANY other eBay book or Video.
Good Luck and Don't Bid on It - not until you have finished this program!

This is good for a newbie only

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book didnt help me it was too basic.
I knew most of the information didnt learn anything new

Would you ever listen to anything by Michael Ford again?

No thanks

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jane Wells?

The author reading is always the best

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
