The First Episode of eBay’s New Podcast Has Posted!

 

Well, eBay Open has come and gone.  It was truly a blast.  We loved it!  The event gave sellers the opportunity to meet eBay executives, eBay employees, and eBay sellers from around the world!

 

 

Sadly, eBay Open 2018 was also the location of the last eBay Radio broadcast ever.  eBay Radio Host Lee Mirabel decided to retire, so the company decided to end the show.  But there’s good news!  Today, eBay released the first episode of their new podcast, Selling on eBay, with Jim “Griff” Griffith and Audrey Tracy of eBay for Business Live!  The release of episode 1 coincides with the release of the eBay Fall Seller Update, so today’s podcast includes a lot of info about upcoming changes.  Don’t miss it!

Don’t know what to sell? Well, have you checked out the Score Board lately?  John Robert, a reader, has been going crazy selling a wide variety of items he bought for next to nothing.  Among those items are the products listed in the title.  Click here to check out his scores!

eBay Has a New YouTube Channel!

 

 

I’ve decided that I’m going to start posting my best scores on the Score Board. I’ve sold some awesome stuff lately!  For example, I recently bought a brand new set of Kitchen Craft pots and pans for $35 at a yard sale.  I was pretty annoyed that the seller wouldn’t go down in price.  I didn’t know if the set was worth a ton or not because the cell phone reception is terrible north of town.

 

Within a few weeks, I sold it for just under $600 + shipping.  Now that’s what I call a score!

 

FYI:  I was just listening to Tuesday’s eBay Radio, and I heard all about eBay’s new YouTube channel.  It’s a channel just for sellers!  I recommend everyone subscribe.  My favorite playlist so far is “Seller Stories.”  Check it out!

Are You Staying at Mandalay Bay?

 

 

So I just heard Griff and Lee on eBay Radio talking about eBay Open 2018 at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.  Griff brought up the fact that some eBayers are talking about staying at other hotels to save money.  My advice?  Don’t do it!  And here’s why…

 

First of all, staying at a hotel other than the one at which the conference takes place is like living off campus freshman year instead of living in the dorms.  If you stay at Mandalay Bay, you’ll meet eBay sellers everywhere you go: in the elevator, at the buffet, at the gift shop.  This won’t happen if you stay in a condo off the strip or at a hotel at the other end of the city.  I don’t know about you, but one of the big reasons I go to eBay Open is to network.

 

Another reason to stay at Mandalay Bay is that at some point, you will get tired!  Every once in a while, the food, the drink, and the networking will make you wish for your bed.  If you’re staying at Mandalay Bay, you’ll be able to run up to your room and take a napper snapper so that you’re ready for the next networking event or workshop.  And if you forget something in your room,  it won’t take you forever to get it.

 

Finally, it’s hot!  Do you really want to deal with the 117-degree heat every time you leave the hotel?  I don’t.  Trust me.  The heat is INSANE!  It was so hot during the eBay Open 2016 event, that we couldn’t hang out by the pool unless we were in the pool.  No joke.  It’s much safer to avoid the outside when you’re visiting Vegas in July.

 

Rooms are only $89 a night, but if you want to save money, I recommend getting a roommate!  When I attended my first eBay event in Chicago, I went to the eBay boards and found one.  It was easy, and the lady I roomed with wasn’t an ax murderer.  She was just a normal eBay seller looking for someone to share a room.
