Have You Ever Participated in a Chat With an eBay Exec?

 

 

A few weeks ago, I visited the wine country again.  I didn’t go winetasting, but my mom’s neighborhood was having a huge 26-family yard sale, and I found some very interesting items. One of the items I found was a mirrored bar sign featuring a famous brand of whiskey.  I don’t like large, fragile items, but I purchased it for a mere $4, and it’s relatively small.  I listed it immediately for $150 or best offer.  Someone started watching it about five minutes after I posted it.  I’m the only one on eBay who has it.  In fact, I haven’t been able to find it anywhere online. I hope it sells for at least $100!

 

In other news….

 

I was on Twitter the other day, and I saw a post about an upcoming “Executive Chat” featuring Brian Burke, eBay’s director of community development.  I’d met Brian at the eBay Open event, and he’d seemed really interested in talking to sellers.  Since I have been having an issue with keywords, I decided to participate in the chat which took place yesterday on the eBay boards.

 

During the chat, Brian answered a wide variety of questions from sellers.  I posted my question, and he asked me to send him more information about the issue I was having so that he could look into it further.  Since then, I have already received a number of emails from him regarding the problem I am having.  I hope that eBay continues recruiting eBay execs to participate in these events.  Click here to check out the latest chats.

Do You Make Customers Send Back the Items They Want to Return?

 

 

Tons of informational videos and webinars have been popping up!  Don’t forget: The webinar tab organizes these for you.

 

Don’t miss the following:

 

-What is your return policy?  I have a 30-day return policy, but if someone contacts me after this time, I usually cave.  In fact, lately I haven’t even been requiring people to send back the items they want to return unless the items are worth quite a bit.  Why?  Many times the items end up being defective, and it’s just not worth my time to inspect, relist, and reshelve.  Taking returns definitely gives you a competitive edge.  If you have questions about returns, don’t miss eBay’s returns webinar.  Click here to check it out.

 

– By the way, it’s easier to issue immediate refunds when you know exactly how much you are making on each item.  Don’t miss Suzanne Wells’ video “Exactly How to Make $2,000 a Month Profit on eBay Working From Home” which reviews the process of tracking your profits.
