Thank you so much! More coming soon:) Stay tuned!


 In this lecture were going to talk about the acronym for eBay that will help you succeed no matter what you sell. These are basically the golden rules of eBay. 


First is educate. You want to educate yourself about the eBay platform which I'm going to do in this course. You are going to want to be educated on the basics of eBay before you can sell anything. This is the starting point for successfully selling on eBay.  


  Next is buyers first. Without buyers your eBay business would be pointless. You want to make sure your buyers happiness comes before anything else. Whether that's answering questions are letting them return an item for a full refund. This will make your business look professional and leave your customers satisfied.


Third is ambition. It takes ambition to grow and maintain an eBay business. It isn't a walk in the park but with a plan (which I will equipped you with) you'll be on your way to eBay success in no time.  


Last is your goal. As Tony Robbins has said, "setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible."  You have to have goals to keep you going. Start small and keep growing it. Maybe a goal you can have is to sell 10 things on eBay this month or it could be to get 100% five-star reviews. Whatever it is your goal should be giving you motivation to keep growing and getting better.

What to sell on eBay

Pictures [CRITICAL]

in this lecture I'm going to recommend some equipment that will up your eBay quality.   First thing you'll definitely need is a Camera. You have to have original photos on used eBay items. I would honestly just use whatever you have lying around the house. You don't need big expensive cameras or lenses for eBay. If you already have an expensive camera then feel free to use it but I currently just use an iPhone. 

 Lighting is next on my list and is very important. Lighting makes your item more visible in your photo more professional. Usually I don't use artificial light when taking pictures. I find that natural lighting usually works best. You could also get studio lights for cheap on When setting up your lighting make sure the light evenly hits the product and that there is no glare on your item. Also there should be no shadows covering your item.

 Another thing that can really up your game on eBay is a white backdrop or a lightbox. Of course you can go and buy these things but I recommend making them yourself for a cheaper option. One way to do this is to use a white sheet or white poster paper and hang it on the wall and then curve it to the ground. You also want to make sure the paper or cloth you are using is not wrinkled or reflective. For best results you  want it to look smooth and even. Another thing you can do is make or buy a lightbox. 

 I also recommend a tripod but it isn't necessary. When taking photos one minor movement can ruin the entire picture. Cameras are often hard to keep steady and with a tripod you can steady your camera to create sharper looking images. Not only does it help steady the camera but it also helps you get the framing right. 


 Make sure if you are selling a used item to emphasize its imperfections. Take up close pictures of any damaged, marked, worn, etc. parts on your item and write it in your description. You want to make sure the buyer knows the specific condition of the product you're selling and what they're potentially buying.

Emphasize Damages

 Try to think of as many questions as you can that your buyer might ask about your product and then try answering them through your pictures.  Here are some example questions. Just remember questions change with different products so these examples might not work with your item. What model is it? What size is it? Does it turn on? Does it have scratches? What color is it? What's included?


Don't hold back while taking eBay pictures. You want to  take a picture of every angle, pictures on emphasizing imperfections, and pictures to answer questions your buyer might have. By doing this your buyer will know what they are paying for and will most likely choose your  listing over someone else's who gives very little information about their product.

Competitor Analysis is very important for a successful listing on eBay. Try to find things you like, don't like, and things that are common between listings of your product. You can also right down any ideas you have to improve your listing on the right side of the sheet under "ideas" and write your title and description under the corresponding sections when completed.

Competitor Analysis

Let's talk about Titling your product listing! Your title is all about keyword research so you can stand out from your competitors. Some ways to research keywords is to search your product on eBay and use your compare and contrast chart to find common keywords used in the products that show up at the top. You can also look at completed listings and use the search bar for suggestions. Just remember your title doesn't need to make sense but you need to use keywords that actually describe your product or relate to your product!


In this lecture you will learn how to create a draft for your product!

Ctreating Your Listing

In this lecture we will write your description! Here are some ideas of things to put in your description:


-Product Features




-Customer Satisfaction 


-Shipping Info



-Has a chance of making more or less money than anticipated.

-More likely to sell with low starting price.

-Will let customers decide value.

Fixed Price:

-Not random or unexpected about how much you will make.

-You choose the price to sell it at.

-Good for multiple quantities.

-Might take longer to sell.

Format and Price

Shipping information is important to your listing. There are some things to consider about shipping like: Should you do Best Offer? Should you do Free shipping? Should you do a Handling Fee? Etc. 

Make sure you're confident you'll make a profit from your decision. Also compare what the outcomes could be if you do any of the questions above.

How You'll Ship it and Preferences

Thankfully if you aren't finished with your draft you can save it and work on it later! You can also preview your listing before you even list it to see what it looks like!

List it!!
