Can I go to jail for selling on eBay?
Hey, do you sell on eBay? How about Garage Sales or Yard Sales? If so, better check your merchandise. Selling the wrong items on eBay could possibly land you in jail, or at least give you a hefty fine from the Government! How can it be? Well, the US Federal Government has started a crackdown on such "2nd hand" sales. If you are selling any kind of item that the manufacturer has ever recalled, then you could be in trouble. This particularly applies to selling toys or other items for children. The government is calling this crackdown "Resale Roundup." This crackdown is not ...
Leveling the playing field
For you, what is the best thing about eBay, or other online auctions? Well, to be honest, there are so many good things about selling online through auctions that it is hard for me to say what the best thing is. However, one of the best things is that eBay levels the playing field. What do I mean? Well, I believe that on eBay, a small guy like you and me can compete head to head with the big boys. I mean, as a small time player, it can be hard for us to compete against the big businesses in the "real ...
I may have lost a prong!
Remember, a while back, I wrote about how I planned a "two pronged approach" in selling on eBay? I was planning to source items from the Philippines, where I live, to sell on eBay.com, and I was going to source items from the USA to the Philippines. Being an American and living in the Philippines for a decade, I have a bit of an advantage, in that I know what things are available in each country, and also what things cost in each country. I can use my unique knowledge in this regard to find items where I can have ...

Do you know about the Daily Deal?
eBay has something that is new, or at least new for me. I am not sure when it started, but back in the days when I was a regular eBay seller, it didn't exist. What am I talking about? I'm talking about eBay's Daily Deal. eBay has four Daily Deals each and every day. A Daily Deal is something with a very deep discount, and also Free Shipping! That's right, every item that is on the Daily Deal must feature free shipping. The price you see is the price that you pay, delivered right to your door! Well, it is delivered to ...
Implications of doing business overseas
OK, as most of my readers would already know, I am an American, but I live in the Philippines. That's not what this site is all about, but living in a different country can also have implications when selling things online, especially on eBay. And these things apply no matter where you are selling from, if you plan to sell to buyers in other countries. As I pointed out in an early article, I plan to sell merchandise on eBay and other online auctions using a "two pronged approach." Firstly, I am going to sell items from here in the Philippines ...
