How To Set Up Your Own Ebay Store

How To Set Up Your Own ebY Store Planning "Well where do I start?" and there is no real answer to that, because there are lots of starting points, but you need to be sure that you plan and you plan well, the more planning you do the less mistakes you are likeély to make.

Once you have you're product range, be sure to shop around as there can be drastic price differencés between supplieřs, and be sure to'haggle! Competition 100 mer feedback, something that sets Being new on the market you are going to have L knowledge, or o you apart from the rest, nów this can be one of two things: lóyalty.

You may find your competition are selling bundles of items such as 4 for £9.99'. You may find they aré selling a wide range of colours or some other attractive point. MY MOST IMPORTANT TIP: If you see a lot of people selling the products you want to sell, and they have 100 in stock and they have sold maybe 5 or 10, and if the last sale was more than two weeks ago, GO west priced, people selling this item who are the BOARD! than five, GO TO THE DRAWIold less tA more than five BACK THE DRAWING BOARD.
