Selling and posting products internationally

This is probably one of the most important posts so far on my blog. I am a big believer of making your products available to customers overseas, but I know a lot of people are put of by this, for reasons I don’t know.  I can only think of the postage costs, but as long […]

Protecting you eBay images from being used by other sellers

One of my pet hates on eBay is when other sellers use your images.  This can particularly happen if you are selling wholesale items that other sellers can easily get hold off and sell.   Rather than take their own image and make their listing look unique, they will troll through eBay looking for another seller’s […]

Changes to eBay listing title rules

Just changed for the month of September is the number of characters eBay allow in the listing title.   It was 55 characters and now is 80 characters. I don’t know about you, but quite often I run out of characters when choosing keywords to put into my titles, so this is good news indeed. […]

Product sourcing for your online auction business part 5.4 – another eBay arbitrage experiment
