become successful you must first apply what you learn. Once again I say to you,
this book has all the information you need to get started and become
7
successful, you do NOT need to buy any other eBay books after this...if you do
buy another book or product on eBay your chances of success will be less!!

After you read this please do NOT procrastinate any longer, stop putting things
off. Because while you are stalling thousands of people who barely figured out
how to become a member of eBay are making money, gaining experience and
learning as they go along. It is very important for you to start at once! I can't
teach you experience, I can't teach you what it feels like to have your auctions
get tons of bids. You must experience those things by yourself, and besides you
make money by doing not reading!!

This book will provide you with all the information you need to be successful on
eBay, it will give you great tips and advice. But if you are only going to learn one
or two thing from reading this book, it should be that it is very possible to become
a PowerSeller, but you must get started first.

You must get started! AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! Unless you take action nothing
will change! Even though this book contains all the information you need to
become a PowerSeller, that information is worthless unless it is applied. Action is
key to your success, without action the best ideas in the world are useless.

Getting started alone will not make you rich. If you think that you will
make lots of money in your first day than I'm sorry to break your heart. Nothing
comes easy, but eBay is about as easy as it gets.


You must have some patience, willpower,
and most of all persistence. I can
guarantee that selling on eBay will be one
of the simplest and easiest businesses
you will ever try, but you need to stick to
it. If this is just a flavor of the week for
you...you will not succeed.

The days are passing by and you are
missing out on a lot of money. Every
single day that passes without you taking
action you are losing out on
thousands of dollars, you are missing out on a lot of happiness and excitement
and your life is passing you by.

Just how much money are you missing out on? I can't tell you the exact amount,
but I can give you an example. Here is how simple it would be for you to make
$10,000 per month by selling on eBay;

If you decide to sell a product that gives you $100 in profit for every sale you
make (there are a lot of products like this). You will need to sell only 3 products
8
per day to reach almost $10,000 per month;

$100 profit x 3 sales x 30 days = $9,000

If you sell 4 products per day:

$100 profit x 4 sales x 30 days = $12,000

Isn't $12,000 a month great? Just think of all the great things you can do with
that money, think how much joy that money can bring into your life, think about
how it would feel to able to afford all of the things you have dreamed about your
whole life. Think of all the great thing you always wanted in life, and understand
that eBay is the opportunity to make all of your dreams come true...in the near
future.

NOTE: The example above is an example and is not meant to be taken as a fact.
However, it is possible to make that kind of money but it all depends on you.

"If making money on eBay is a real possibility than everyone would be doing it!"

You will probably hear this from some people, there will be those who try and
discourage you and put you down. This is especially true of friends and family
members who are afraid to take a risk and pursue their own dreams. Or some
wholesaler may not want to deal with you, you may lose some money in the
process but if you stick to it you will make it!

Everything that can be bought in a store can be bought through a supplier and
resold for profit. The possibilities are limitless! So don't be discouraged if no
matter how well you follow the advice in this book your used underwear just won't
sell. Simply move on to another product. This book provides you with plenty of
information on where to get products for resale and how to get them.

And I believe that with the help of this book you can become a PowerSeller. But it
isn't important what I believe because unless you feel the same way, your
chances of success are slim.

One other thing I want you to know is you do not need to read this book to
become a PowerSeller! Why would I say this? Because it's true, over 99% of the
PowerSellers out there didn't read this book. They became PowerSellers through
hard work and determination. It also took a very long time for them to learn
everything they know now because they didn't have a great book like this to
teach them everything they need to know.

This book is designed to make you a PowerSeller in the shortest time possible by
teaching you everything you need to know to become a PowerSeller without
going through a long and grueling trial and error process. This book will save you
time...a lot of time. And it will teach you things that a lot of PowerSellers still don't
9
know.

Regardless of what you are going to sell, who you are, or even where you live;
you can become wealthy by selling on eBay. I know you can because I have
talked to so many people that were once just like you. I have talked to people
that were poor, struggling from paycheck-to-paycheck and had no hope left to
live a happy life. These people are now PowerSellers and their message to you
is...

“eBay can change your life!”

GETTING STARTED
Before you can become a PowerSeller you must get started. As obvious as that
may be, many people prefer to put off actually getting started. You must make a
penny before you can make a million, and before you can make a penny you
must get off your butt and get to work.

The first step to being a successful eBay PowerSeller is being interested, the
second is doing something about it, and the third is getting an eBay account.

So if you haven't already registered to use eBay please do so right now.

It's extremely important that you start as soon as possible. Like I said before, this
book has all the info you need to become a successful eBay PowerSeller, so
don't go buying more eBay how-to products...GET STARTED!

The best way to start is right away. Starting at once is essential to your success,
by starting now you will create momentum that will help push you forward. You
have to get the ball rolling!

Think of it as getting into a cold swimming pool...some people get into the pool
very slowly, taking a very long time thus making the unpleasant experience last
longer, the longer they take the harder it is. Others simply dive right in. Although
they feel uncomfortable for a few seconds as their body gets used to the water,
the uncomfortable feeling passes very fast and they are free to enjoy the pool
and have fun, while the person taking their time is still suffering.

Getting started is very important and EASY! What I mean by getting started is:

? First get an eBay account and browse around the member's area to get
comfortable with your surroundings.

11
? The second thing you must do is get off your computer and go looking for
things to sell in your own home. I am sure you can find all kinds of things
to sell that you don't need.

?Read the rest of this book

? Take pictures of all the stuff you found and list it up for auction! This is not
going to make you lots of money (unless you have a Picasso). This is for
experience, it is to get rid of any doubts you still have about eBay. I can not
teach you “peace-of-mind”, you must get it by experiencing your first sale!

Your first sale: your first sale is one of the most important experiences you will
need to go through on the road to eBay success. Your first sale will build
confidence and erase doubts you may still have. You will experience first hand
more than half of what's involved in being an eBay seller...listing, watching bids
go up (exciting!), answering questions, accepting payments, communicating with
the buyer, paying eBay fees, packing and shipping your item, leaving feedback,
receiving feedback and you will get a feeling of certainty, you will know first hand
how most of the stuff works.

But before you rush out, and give it a shot. Here are a few things you should
avoid doing:

Reserve auctions: there are times to use reserve auctions but when you are just
starting out and you want to experience what it feels like to sell something and
get some confidence its better to start your items at a low price with no reserve.

Most buyers hate reserve auctions! You will get a lot less interest from potential
buyers if you have a reserve. Buyers don't want to spend 7 days bidding on
something and have it not sell. Besides no-reserve auctions usually get more
bids and a higher closing price. More on reserve auctions later.

Buying too much of one product: when you are first starting out you usually
want everything to happen as fast as it possibly can. A lot of people make the
mistake of buying the first lot of products they see from the first supplier they go
to.

Many PowerSeller will tell you just like they told me, the worst thing that can
happen to you is buying a ton of products only to find out the products don't sell
well and are twice as cheap from a different supplier.

Basing your plans on guesswork: if you are like most people, your plans are
probably based on guesswork. You have probably heard the saying "what you
don't know can't hurt you." Well in business planning what you don't know WILL
hurt you. I have heard many people say things like "I can get a great deal on
these designer sunglasses, they will sell so good!"

12
What these people often find out is that the sunglasses sell on eBay for less than
what they got them for or they™re not authentic (they™re fakes). So please don't
simply assume that the product will sell for an X amount of dollars or that you are
getting a good deal. It is very important that you base everything on actual facts
and research and not simply what you think.

Not treating your business seriously: Most PowerSellers I talked to are full-
time eBay sellers, working anywhere from 1-14 hours a day. What? You don't
want to work 14 hours a day!? Don't worry this book teaches you how to save a
ton of time.

The PowerSellers that work over 8 hours a day are usually the ones that aren't
treating their business like a business, you will learn all about this later. The
important is that you start treating your business like a business right from the
start, even when you are putting your first item up for auction.

Getting discouraged when your first auction doesn't get any bids: this
is a big one, because this is when most people quit. Until you experience a sale
you will have doubts in your mind about your ability to make money on eBay.

When the first item you put up for auction doesn't sell, the doubts in your mind
can get stronger and you can get discouraged. If your first auction doesn't get
any bids on it remember it's not the end of the world. What you should know
before listing an item up for sale, is it isn't guaranteed to sell. Not everything on
eBay gets bided on, the truth is if you can get 25-50% of your auctions to sell,
that's great!!

Selling fake or counterfeit products: if you are thinking about selling
designer clothing, shoes or accessories this is something you should NEVER do
unless you want to be banned from eBay. eBay is littered with fake designer
clothing, the people that sell this crap usually have a very short eBay career.

Because eBay has a program called VeRO (Verified Rights Owner). This
program is basically representatives of the brand name companies (Nike, polo,
Swiss army etc.) searching through eBay and reporting anything that looks even
remotely suspicious. So do NOT list fake products on eBay! It will be the end of
eBay for you.

Estimating how much shipping will cost: when you list your first items up
for auction don't just put up a shipping price that you think will cover the
shipping cost of your item. If your shipping price is too high no one will be
interested in your auctions. If your shipping price turns out to be less than what
the post office charges you will have to pay the balance. There are many ways to
lose money on eBay, shipping is a big one.


13
Talking instead of doing: instead of telling everyone how much money you
are going to make, why don't you show them by making it. I know it is very
tempting to tell everyone about the exciting new way of making money you have
discovered. But doing this is very counter productive and is just an excuse to put
off actually getting to work for another day. Remember, do first talk last.

Those are the main things you should avoid when starting out on eBay, you
should obviously avoid posting naked pictures of yourself when listing
auctions....that is common sense ;-)

Now that you know what not to do keep reading and I will tell you all the things
you should do¦

If you want to make a living selling on eBay you must treat it like a real business.
There are a ton of PowerSellers out there who treat selling on eBay like a job, not
a business (more on that later), these are usually the same people that work 14
hour days.
