Web Pages the Smart Way. ""I followed Sinclair's chapter by chapter . ""I followed Sinclair's chapter by chapter approach over the course of several weeks, reading and experimenting whenever I had a few moments. Et voila! I am (almost) a Web expert. The book is a tremendous timesaver that lets you focus more on selling your products and less on business processes, helping you to contend with an increasingly crowded and competitive marketplace, escalating online theft and fraud, and continuously changing tax legislation and updates to the site.

The book is well written and is done at the high school level so all should be able to understand the ideas he is presenting. When you consider the cost of a vehicle, it's a good idea to invest a little bit in a book like this, so you can avoid any of the pitfalls that can happen.

Selling merchandise on the site is so profitable and seems so simple that the marketplace has become as fiercely competitive as it is crowded. Whether just starting out or hoping to achieve greater success, online sellers need a solid business strategy to outrun their rivals.

He or she must seek a profit that covers the risk of the camera’s staying on the shelf a long time. The profit must also cover the cost of doing business, which includes paying rent and employing sales clerks (overhead). The transactions do not necessarily take place through a dealer.

I couldn't resist, so I checked it out. Yes indeed, some fellow was selling a few minutes of advice and counsel to the highest bidder. If you're going to spend more.

The most incredible auction I ever saw on eBay was under "HOT" items (meaning it had over 30 bids) for "a wee bit of good advice." I couldn't resist, so I checked it out. Yes indeed, some fellow was selling a few minutes of advice and counsel to the highest bidder.
My purchases were primarily books, but I made some foolish mistakes when I started buying on e-Bay. By the time I bought Sinclair's book, I was a seasoned eBay buyer and seller, but after reading his book I realized there was still quite a bit that I didn't know.
If you're going to spend more than $50 on eBay in your lifetime (which by definition would include everyone in the Milky Way Galaxy) you need to buy this book.
Good layout, good size, easy to read, simple writing style, yet very informative and a fantastic price - considering the potential savings (and profit) from following his advice.
The part I loved best - you don't have to be a computer genius to read and comprehend what he's telling you. My computer literacy is a few notches higher than Daisy's. (she's my dog) And I was able to follow pretty much everything Sinclair is saying.
And there's also a section on how to protect and defend yourself against fraud.
It's over 400 pages and is fully indexed. Lots of good graphics too.
Seriously - if you do more than a couple eBay transactions per year, this book is needful and valuable. As much for buyers as for sellers.
I'd have saved myself close to $100 if I'd bought it before I started trading on eBay.

I have all the other books on how to do Ebay but this one is the most comprehensive. Everything you will ever need is here in this book.Learn tips and tricks that the other books don't have. If you are a beginner or a seasoned pro this book has something for you. Well worth the money. It is a great reference book to have on hand or even give as a gift! Great book period. I have been selling successfully on Ebay for over 10 years. You won't be disappointed.

I bought the second edition of this book sometime ago to use as a reference for starting a business on Ebay. I found the book to be very easy to use and full of useful tips and information. I bought this book when I wanted a updated reference for my ebay business. This book, like the prior edition is easy to use and will help you no matter if you are a Ebay newbie or seasoned pro. Yes there is a lot of general busness information but most likely you are looking at starting a business on Ebay so you need a convenient source for both issues. I am very pleased with this book and highly recommend it.

This was a helpful book for establishing an eBay account to sell incidental products, but I discovered it was unnecessary. eBay does a fantastic job of telling its participants how to accomplish objectives. I sold a motorcycle and bought a big scooter on eBay - both very positive experiences - without this book.

An excellent book for E-Bay sellers (or buyers) -- a fine listing of almost anything you can think of to sell, and the approx price of them. I found it to be very useful for my e-bay business.

(NOTE FROM REVIEWER: I WROTE THIS REVIEW BACK IN 2000; EBAY HAS CHANGED SO MUCH IN 4 YEARS THAT SOME THINGS MAY NOT APPLY ANYMORE. FOR INSTANCE, THERE IS NO LONGER A NEED TO KNOW HTML LANGUAGE TO DRESS UP AN AD. WHAT FOLLOWS IS THE REVIEW AS WRITTEN 4 YEARS AGO.) I bought this book because I was interested in getting into ebay and it was the perfect book. Not only did it have the basic information that a beginner needs, but it is also a great reference tool for people who are seasoned (like I am now). I buy and sell on ebay and it has great tips for both buyers and sellers. It tells you the best way to bid to get an item for the lowest price. When to bid, how to know what to bid, how to outfox your competitors. I continually refer to the book when I am listing an item for sell to find out how to dress up my ads with bullet points, colored titles, and paragraphs (instead of the one paragraph that ebay allows you when you don't know HTML language). Mr. Sinclair tells you how to know what to set as the opening bid, when the best time to list an item is, and how to attract bidders. He also tells you how to deal effectively with other ebay members, inlcluding those who don't honor their bids. The book is full of inside tips that you can't find on the ebay tour online. I highly recommend the book to anyone interested in getting started with ebay, or a seasoned ebayer who would like to learn how to be a more successful buyer and/or seller. After reading this book, you can definitely do it the SMART way.

This is an excellent introductory work on the inner workings of Ebay. The author shows how to buy things from E-bay, use them and
resell them-many times at a profit. Trust is at the heart of the
E-bay system. The site is perfect for revenue raising. Payment may be made by Turbo-check, Paypal or by personal check or money order. The auctions are at agi5.ebay.com/ws2/ebay. Losses may be insured. A special escrow protects against non-delivery for
large money purchases. The E-bay system is perfect for high volume selling. The book is a worthy purchase because it explains the Ebay system and protocols, identifies advantages &
warns of pitfalls. This is a solid value for the price paid.
I've bought from E-bay and my experience is that tremendous values are there for the asking. A buyer can buy literally at .10
on the dollar. Ebay is perfect for the new college student seeking to buy furnishings and books at deep discounts.
