Overview

Since its founding almost a decade ago, eBay has changed the way the world shops. This leading online auction site now has more than 114 million active users who buy and sell just about everything imaginable—from antiques and collectibles to cars, cameras, and crafts. While some log on hoping to sell single items they simply want to get rid of, others have built multimillion-dollar businesses by auctioning off items to buyers around the globe. The most successful of these have been crowned as Titanium PowerSellers by eBay—an indication that they are the most elite merchants on the site.

So, how did these Titanium PowerSellers get started, and what does it really take to build a thriving online auction empire that generates millions of dollars in sales? The answers to these questions and more are found in The eBay Millionaire.

Within every information-packed page, author Amy Joyner goes one-on-one with eighteen Titanium PowerSellers to reveal the proven and tested strategies that will enable you to build your own profitable eBay business. While the book begins with some general guidance on getting your eBay venture up and running, it quickly moves on to profile eBay's top merchants—those collectively moving millions of dollars in goods every year. This diverse group, which sells everything from restaurant refrigerators to designer shoes, shares their exclusive and invaluable experiences, including:

  • How to quickly get your business up and running—even from your kitchen table
  • The best ways to locate and decide what merchandise to sell
  • How to handle growth and go from zero to millions in sales
  • The most efficient ways to ship goods
  • How to keep customers happy and create repeat business automatically
  • Little-known pricing secrets to ensure that your items sell for top dollar every time
  • And much more

The eBay Millionaire is unlike any other book of its kind on the market today. Each inspirational and informative profile also contains many "PowerPointer" tips that highlight important lessons from the featured seller, along with a frank "Titanium Talk" question-and-answer section that delves into an especially interesting aspect of each merchant's business. In addition to learning the exclusive tricks of the trade—as practiced by some of eBay's most experienced sellers—the final section of The eBay Millionaire outlines the fifty most valuable secrets of successful eBay selling.

With millions already making either a full- or part-time living selling goods on eBay, it's clear that the online site can create some impressive profits for those who know what they're doing. Filled with in-depth insights and real-world advice, The eBay Millionaire will show you how to get your piece of this huge pie.

Whether you're just starting out, or looking to take your existing online business to the next level, The eBay Millionaire will put you on the road to becoming eBay's next successful Titanium PowerSeller today!

This book was enjoyable throughout. This could be used in a college course. Shows direct from successful companies what to do and what not to do. The only problem was there needed to be more editing, there was a lot of typos and incorrect grammar. If these were fixed it would be 5 stars.

This is by far the best guide to selling on eBay I've come across. It demonstrates the techniques used by the site's most successful sellers, which can truly be adopted by anyone. I've read several other eBay how-to guides, and this one is by far the very best.
