If I put just 10 percent of what I learned in reading this book to work in my own eBay business, my sales will undoubtedly skyrocket (my eBay seller id: guitarlance2094, my store is Lance's Collectibles Lair). But there is a catch, and Norb Novocin and his wife Marie make it clear right up front, and I paraphrase here: "Being successful on eBay isn't rocket science, it's elbow grease."

Now that we've got that nasty detail out of the way --that you have to work and work hard to be successful-- this is a quick, fun read, full of great photographs and contributor tips throughout. The Novocins detail how to sign up for eBay, why you should take Paypal, and the other administrative details you need to launch your business.

They also tell you how to research items in advance, how to write compelling titles and descriptions, their logic on pricing, the importance of and suggestions on how to take great photographs and everything else you don't know about eBay.

Beyond the basics, they tell you how to find the items to sell on eBay. This is where the Novocin's really excel, because of their skill in spotting unique items that bring the most money. Additionally, the Novocins explain how they handle consignments, which constitute nearly one third of their business. Interestingly, most of the couple's auction listings start at just 99 cents.

You can read this book in a couple of evenings, and by the time you're done, you'll have learned in a few hours things that took the Novocins years to discover and perfect. For the money, especially now that the price has been reduced, you can't go wrong. Thumbs up!

WOW! I thought I was an eBay guru, but after reading this guide to getting sold on eBay and all of the tips and tricks of the powerselling trade, I was blown away! Norb and Marie have truly captured treasure and an abundance of wisdom, advice and keen instinctual use in less than 200 pages. If you're looking to make extra money on the side, start your own eBay business or simply get rid of stuff you already have on hand, this book is a MUST READ!!

You'll learn how to resell easily and they even offer a step by step DVD to walk you through the visual world of buying, listing and selling on eBay. The fact that they have been so successful and are willing to share this information with those that are willing to take their own businesses to another level is admirable. It just goes to show that there are truly business minded individuals out there that want to see others succeed along with themselves. Its very inspiring!

As an eBay buyer, this book gave me a look on "the other side of the fence" of my purchases. I now realize
why Norb and Marie are at the top of their game. They pay attention to detail and to their customers. If I
ever decided to be a seller, I would use their model as a template for my e business. This book is an excellent read.

In clear terms illustrated amply with photographs, this how to volume takes the mystery out of selling successfully on eBay. Whether you wish to sell one item or a multitude of different pieces, the Novocin book will increase your net proceeds while giving you the confidence to be a successf eBay seller. Dr. Ellen Manthe

So many books about getting "more sales" or getting rich quick, on the internet are a waste of my time, not the author's who didn't put out a quality book because they were to greedy or simply clueless. But me, a reader who feels ripped off every single time. I bought one these boooks on another site and it was a joke. The author over promised and under delivered. I've bought a lot of these which is why I almost didn't buy this book. Thank-God I did buy it!

Getting Sold on Ebay: A Treasure Hunter's Guide to making Money" Is different! It really shows you and tells you how to make money and to be nice at the same time. This is the only self -help selling book that has really shown readers what to do and how to do it. The authors guide the newbies and the pros at what to do and what not to do. The language is easy to follow without being condescending. These are hard working people who have done this a long time, they know what they're talking about and they are not a flash in the pan. The authors really care about their readers and are truly excited about sharing their information and teaching the rest of us. Thank-you so much for this book. There was so much I didn't know but do now, thanks to you both. I give "Getting Sold on eBay: A Treasure Hunter's Guide to Making Money," one hundred stars! One more thing, I don't know the authors of this book but they are the nicest peopleKelly Karate Encounters The Moon PrincessKelly Karate Meets the Mayan Queen

A really terrific and helpful book. I love the fact that you just "step" us right along the way. Thanks for learning the lessons the hard way, and then sharing your valuable knowledge to prevent others from having to learn the same hard way. Easy read start to finish and a pure joy. Thanks!!!!!!
