From Chapter 3: Selling Have you every heard the expression that "one person's trash is another person's treasure"? That's what keeps eBay as popular as it is. People who are cleaning out their attics, basement and storerooms and others who have worked years at establishing collections, offer them in good faith to the highest bidder. And that's where the trash and treasure thing comes in. With millions and millions of items on eBay and hundreds of thousands of buyers, there's always a market. But how do you create an auction? What about those fancy pictures in item descriptions? What should I charge? How much does eBay charge? And why does "Gee, I'll quit my job and sell Froibles on eBay!" sound good, but requires a good deal of planning. That and more is what we'll cover in this last important section of eBay Online Auctions.).

I purchased this book because I wanted to learn some things about E-BAY that I didn't already know. I wanted to learn how I can make lots of $$$ and maybe gain some tips for making this a full time job. I did not learn a damned thing. This book is for someone who can't figure out how to list and bid. Most people can figure that out by just going to the site. There is nothing in this book that you can't find directly on the site. OH EXCEPT MAYBE.....WHERE CAN I FIND E-BAY?? DUH..If you need answers to those kinds of questions. It is just best to stay away! This book for me was a waste of $$$$ Hey, I think I'll sell it on E-bay!!!

Neil Salkind and Bruce Frey have written eBay Online Auctions to assist online shoppers to learn about the leading online auction house - eBay. Written in a creative question-and-answer format, the authors cover all the angles of auctioning to help their readers buy and sell a variety of products, services, and plenty of other interesting things, including many hard-to-find and one-of-a-kind items.
Readers will be able to pick up on a number of essential matters involved in auctioning online at eBay, such as registering with the service, creating their own private activity logs, navigating through the Website, learning about buying and selling merchandise, searching, listing merchandise, adding pictures, bidding instructions, payment options, using and choosing escrow services, making arrangements to ship and receive merchandise after sales have taken place, and taking precautions to avoid experiencing the deadbeat blues!
This book will contribute to more productive participation at eBay. It will help readers save time, effort, and money as they find their way around this popular site. The useful glossary at the back highlights special Web pages and terminology covering general services, features, transaction options, and other information available at eBay that they should become familiar with!
Readers on the move won't be burdened down by carrying this book around away from the home or office. The book's handy 8" x 5" size makes it easy to carry, tuck away, and to have on hand at a moment's notice. It's a great guide for anyone wanting to learn about auctioneering at eBay!

I'm happy to have this book. It's concise, easy to read, and amazingly up to date! I research and recommend Internet auction sites for collectors just getting on the Web and this is one book that eBay users need. Worth the price!
