As an eBay Power Seller myself, and the author of a few "How To" eBooks, I am always interested in reading other successful sellers' experiences. The bottom line is, what worked for them, worked for them because they paid attention to the details and accepted the learning curve that comes with every new venture.

Suzanne Wells and I differ in opinion on several recommendations to the new seller. That does not mean she is wrong and I am right, or vice versa. It simply means that her methods will work, and so will mine. Where we completely agree are on the important subjects of how to treat the customer, how to communicate well, how to sell honestly with honesty, and how to run your eBay business in a professional, organized manner, even if it is strictly your part-time hobby.

I found the 64 page eBook easy to read, grammatically pleasing and with a few very helpful links, but not riddled with advertising. I found the book to be an excellent primer for the beginning eBay seller, and believe the more seasoned seller can also pick up a few tips. Most importantly, the author presents her material as reflective of her experience. She writes from a solid four year success in eBay selling and documents her lessons learned so that others might be able to learn without having to actually make the same mistakes.

I appreciate having had the opportunity to read this book!

I've been on eBay for years, but only recently started selling on eBay. In the past few months, I've made some mistakes and learned the hard way. Oh, how I wish I would have read this BEFORE I started selling! Great information on everything without bogging you down with too much technical information. Even though I thought I had it figured out, the author has opened my eyes to even more possibilities! It's an easy read, with great links to her podcast, and website, along with other great online resources.

She covers everything from where to get what you sell, pricing, shipping, and even the scary stuff like international shipping and how to deal with difficult buyers. Even more advanced things like cross promoting and marketing.

It's a great reassurance to see a mom like me who's making it on eBay.

I purchased this book as well as a few others regarding online selling and specifically to garner insight from others whom I thought were successful at it. Very thing book, big type face and nothing that I hadn't already read from ebay's "help" section. I'd probably pay $0.99 for an ebook of this book, but not anything more than that. Save your money, or at least wait until it's a buck. Better yet, I'll be selling my copy shortly for that amount.

It's nothing but a few pages on common sense stuff. She refers you back to the website for more information. Then why even get this book? Don't waste your money.

Like many of you reading this, I've only recently begun selling on eBay as an actual business. For me, this book has provided valuable insight into how to shape and build my business in order to position myself for maximum profit. Easy to read, honest and straightforward, in reading this guide I was able to discover the answers to many of my questions such as finding products to sell, how to avoid and even handle negative feedback and how to save money on certain eBay fees. I was particularly inspired by the section on international selling. I've been a little hesitant in doing so, but I feel empowered to now offer international auctions through eBay as this guide has shared insight into how the process works and what a useful tool it can be in building my business.

Besides covering all of the basics in an easy to read format (and offering very sound marketing ideas), perhaps the best part of this book is the sharing of helpful links, money saving tips and useful resources available outside of the book. Susan Arant-Wells has done more than share the basic "how-to's" of the eBay business, but has also been so gracious as to provide the "where-to's" of where her readers can find even more powerful information, supplies and business tools to support their businesses.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is considering an eBay business or for anyone who is already in the beginning stages of an eBay business, but ready to expand their efforts and step into their next level of selling success. After reading this book, I'm even more excited about the almost limitless possibilities of an eBay business and I trust all of you will be equally inspired as well!

Excellent material for anyone starting to sell on eBay. Good suggestions for items to sell that you may already have without investing any money. This book is the most informative book on the eBay scene. Suzanne is both articulate and smart about how to make eBay be a success. Take time to read and study her tips. She inspired me to gather up things from around the house and start selling!

I recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn more about selling on eBay. I hope to follow in her footsteps and be able to work at home, be with my family, and quit my job. Outstanding reading!
