If you were to look at my eBay About Me page, User ID Harley glasses, you¿d see I have read many eBay-related books. This book tops my list for many reasons. The authors, Brad and Deb Schepp, don't pretend to have come up with the information in their book all by themselves. Instead, they start by thanking all of the many, many Powersellers and other professionals who contributed to the book. Many are among the top 100 sellers on eBay and members of PeSA, the Professional eBay Sellers Alliance, or the Internet Merchants Association. Brad and Deb have all the right connections :-) This book is great for beginners all the way up to advanced sellers. As the 2nd edition, it¿s been revised, and is the most current and up-to-date eBay book on the market. Here are some reasons why I¿m such a fan: ·It¿s packed with information you can put to use immediately. The tips and secrets from experienced sellers are very real, and obviously work in their day-to-day operations. Sit down with the book and have a pad of post-it-notes handy because you are going to want to bookmark lots of sections to revisit. ·Each chapter profiles a Powerseller with a successful eBay businesses, which is very motivating. ·The format of the book is unique, in that each secret is clearly marked. You get the good and the bad points about eBay selling. ·The writing is entertaining and easy to read. The authors are effective and concise, no fluff in this book at all. It¿s hard to put down! Brad and Deb's book encouraged me to create my own About Me page and helped me develop procedures that I use today. 'Now I not only sell on eBay, but I have my own website as well.' They are solid, no bull writers who practice what they preach. I'm sure if they wanted to, with all the information they have gathered, they could be one of the top ten sellers on eBay. But you can definitely tell when reading their books that their passion is writing about eBay and technology. I've read some questionable eBay books and can honestly say this is the best one out there. That¿s why it¿s #1 on the book list on my About Me page. Now that we have employees, this book has become our company training manual--it¿s the ultimate training reference for eBay and beyond.

Too many eBay books have nothing more than common-sense and filler that is easily picked up from the eBay help pages. This book is different because it does not waste time on the basics and draws on the experience of successful sellers. Even seasoned PowerSellers will pick up enough ideas to make it an excellent investment.

One of the best 'how to do eBay' books I have read. Even the most experienced eBay sellers will find many helpful tips and useful information about all aspects of selling on eBay. We found several ideas that have helped improve our six year old eBay business. The info is up to date and worth every penny this book cost. A great resource for all levels of sellers. Especially interesting was the 'Meet a Power Seller' section at the end of each chapter.

As a Power Seller on eBay myself, I found this book indipensible! If I had had it four years ago, it would have cut the time it took to build my business nearly in half! Now that I have it.....Watch Out eBay! It is the only instructive manual of its type that goes beyond eBay 101, into the rarely travelled waters of the mid-sized eBusiness. Here is the golden key that can help you turn a hobby into a business! Well worht any price! Grab a copy NOW!

Great tips here on where to buy stuff to sell, figuring out *what* to sell, creating auctions that deliver results, and automating everything you do to save time and increase productivity. I really like the profiles of actual; PowerSellers, so you can see (and learn from) the people behind those feedback ratings and PowerSeller symbols. Well worth your time and money.

If you're one of the millions of people who have sold a few things on eBay and then wondered how you could make your hobby a fulltime business, this is the book for you. The Schepps are entertaining, and smart writers and the tremendous amount of research they did really shows on every page. Covering everything from customer service, to auction management software, to FINDING PRODUCTS TO SELL, the tips in just one chapter alone will more than pay for this book. Go ahead and buy one of those eBay primers to learn the basics but make sure you pick up this book next if you're serious about becoming a PowerSeller and making eBay your fulltime job!
