Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Sinclair presents ideas and strategies for jumping into the frenzy that is eBay and walking away with a dream poodle lamp or selling an old toaster for the big bucks. Much of the first half of the book deals with information that is available on the eBay website itself though in a less accessible form. Included are the basics for getting started: the rules, registration, and how-to of buying and selling in various auction formats (e.g. the author explains a "Dutch Auction"). Then Sinclair delves deeper with insightful tips, hints, and pitfalls that only a seasoned ebayer would know. Also featured is an extensive section on profiting as a "professional" seller with information on downloading multiple items, creating professional looking listings, and dealing with photographs.
