    If you are looking to take the next step on eBay - you need this book!

    I have bought and sold items on eBay for years, but until reading this book I didn't realize how little I knew about the process. The book gives you a behind the scenes look at eBay and the rules and benefits to becoming a Power Seller.

    If you sell on eBay, this book is a must read. It is a roadmap that contains real world examples of success and failure. The best part is you get to avoid the failure. After implementing some of the strategies, I have seen more bids on my auctions, more repeat customers, better feedback and I even started my own e-commerce website (www.phillyboxes.com) which has lead to more money in my pocket.

    I was extremely happy with the chapter on Going Beyond eBay. That chapter alone convinced me to start a separate website from my eBay store and offer additional products and accessories. There is nothing more satisfying that waking up in the morning and seeing your PayPal account with more money in it than when you went to bed. Make sure you have high speed internet access when you are done reading this book, because you will need it with all the business you will be doing online!

    Although the customer may not always be right, he should always come first. What sets consistent eBay PowerSellers apart is what distinguishes the cream of other commercial endeavors: Five-Star Customer Service.

    From set up through advertising, tracking down hot merchandise (for those who aren't already hoarding a boatload of stuff), to case studies of successful entrepreneurs, "eBay Income Advanced" has what it takes to turn your eBay business from sideline to mainline.

    So, break out that trunk of tomes, gallimaufry of gadgets and plethora of paraphernalia gathering dust (or worse, racking up storage charges). Grab this engaging handbook and plunge into the exciting world of on-line commerce.

    Useful guide to growing an eBay business

    In business parlance there's a popular slogan: "let's move to the next level." The saying revolves around the mission of ramping up operations, increasing productivity, and most importantly, growing revenue and profits. That's what John N. Peragine Jr.'s book, "eBay Income Advanced: How to Take Your eBay Business to the Next Level - For PowerSellers and Beyond" is all about.

    It's aimed for the high performer who wants to work smarter, not harder. As Jim Cockrum, one of the experienced Power Sellers says, it's about maximum profit with the fewest working hours and the happiest customers. Sound impossible? It's not really, according to Peragine, who lays out the PowerSellers' ground rules in an easy-to-follow sequential manner.

    Virtually everyone is familiar with eBay, the wildly successfully online auction site, which has the overwhelming bulk of its market segment. But not everyone is as familiar with PowerSellers, the top sellers on eBay and a group that receives special recognition by eBay management. Those are the people who are not content to merely sell an occasional item every month or so, but want to turn the site into an income stream, either to provide a part- or full-time income or simply because they thoroughly enjoy the process and the excitement of building a successful venture.

    To qualify as a PowerSeller, an eBay merchant needs to meet certain sales volume quotas, have a 98 percent positive feedback and comply with all company regulations. In return, they receive a special designation from eBay, which provides buyers with increased confidence in who they are dealing with, along with a variety of other benefits.
    Peragine provides an excellent guide for achieving this level of eBay success, from how to take the best-looking photos to finding goods and products to sell - and maximize profits.

    The book's layout is functional and filled with useful suggestions offset by bullet points, along with screened boxes that contain tips from experts and case studies, which provide a plethora of helpful tips. The author also spends a lot of time on ways to protect yourself as seller, an aspect of the business that some novices may not think of, as well as evaluating the operation, including weaknesses and threats to it.

    That's a strong point of the book: Peragine doesn't gloss over the undertaking as it takes effort and dedication and not everything may go smoothly or as planned. However, solutions to problems exist, and he makes fast work of pointing those answers out.

    "eBay Income Advanced" is more like a reference work than a one-time read and in that regard also includes a helpful bibliography for additional research. It's the type of book that those in the business will want within reach to turn to again and again for practical advice as they proceed on their path. And that's a good thing, because as another saying goes: "information is power."

    Here's your resource!

    Peragine's book should have a warning on the cover "Do not open unless
    you are serious about seeing your business grow!" because this book will
    explode in your hands. He doesn't just offer you what I assumed would be
    routine information about how to sell more effectively on ebay. Though I
    freely admit it felt that way the first few chapters. He goes way way
    beyond that! By the time I put this book down - and I had to let it rest
    several times because I began to feel overloaded with new information,
    it revolutionized my thinking about what could be accomplished as an
    ebay saler.

    Admit it: people tend to stereotype. Even if we don't want to admit it,
    all the most basic ideas about ebay sink in and limit our own views of
    what can happen for an ebay based business. Peragine challenges the
    paradigm and he does so with all the facts and figures you need to
    follow him right into the success he promises. Whether it is new ideas
    about hiring employees and sample contracts for use when you do that, or
    photography aids, you'll find boxes of expert tips in the margins of
    every page and chapter headings that give you pause.
    He doesn't waste a minute of your time or a place on the page of this
    book. He loads it up with information you can use and gives you
    resources for your own success. For those of you who thought you knew it
    all already - here's your resource.

    Learn about selling on eBay

    Do you sell on eBay? Do you want to sell on eBay? If you r answer to either question is yes, you need to read this book. It would not be a bad idea for purchasers on eBay to read this book as well. This book is a guidebook for selling and buying on eBay. As sellers or buyers, the more you know about the process, hopefully the better the outcome for both parties.

    There have been some less than scrupulous sellers using tricks to get higher prices and to snag the unsuspecting buyer. While they may not be exactly illegal, they are shady at the least. Things do seem to fall through the cracks. Every buyer should have the knowledge of how eBay is supposed to work when dealing with sellers, and first time sellers need to learn how to conduct transactions so both parties have a good experience.

    Before a buyer sends their money to some seller, they should read this book and learn about how to bid, and transactions are completed. This book is for both sellers and buyers on eBay, and receives a four star recommendation.
