The UK (where I live) is in another national lockdown and thousands are out of work. This means more and more people are turning to the internet to buy things, but many people are also looking to sell! Because wherever there is a buyer a seller needs to be, right!
This means that many smart people are not sitting in front of their TV all night, they are actually figuring out how they can flip stuff. To flip something means to buy something for less than you sell that something for, and you also need to factor in selling fess, PayPal fees, and cost of packaging and posting, to be left with a profit. So for example, you could buy something at Poundland (UK store) and sell it for more money on eBay.
The best way to do this, is to sell it through an eBay account that you already gained some traction with. So in other words, you already have some reviews. These might be reviews of things you have bought, and/or sold. Buyers are far more likely to buy from you, if you already have reviews, as they trust you more. So if you are new to eBay and wonder why you can’t sell anything, if you have no reviews, that’s likely why. My first ‘paying’ customer, told me it was because I had seller reviews (of things I bought), that made him trust me enough to buy from me. As it (my old printer) was the first thing I sold on eBay. He gave me and A+++++ review so I was really happy about this, He had to collect the printer from my home, with his partner, and go up a flight of stairs. It was a commercial printer so it was too heavy and expensive to send by courier and I was only selling it for spare parts, with the information in the description that it could be possible to get it working again with the correct part and someone who knew what they were doing. (I also wrote I couldn’t guarantee this). The customer appeared likely to know how to fix it, as he had worked with printers before and I think fixing them was a talent of his.
This shows you, it doesn’t have to be a new item that you buy to flip on eBay, it could be something you need to get rid of that’s cluttering up your home and that you no longer use. It doesn’t even have to necessarily work – but you must state if this is the case when you list the item, don’t lie or embellish the condition, you will get bad reviews and you don’t want that.
With all of this in mind, if you already have an eBay account that you got some reviews on before, it’s time to revive it. It’s a lot easier to revive an eBay store than to set up a new one, like I recently did, and try to sell from it.
In this video I show you how I recently revived my old store and made a few small sales on it, by flipping a toy! You may be thinking you can’t do that, just make small sales. But you would be wrong. Each sale you learn from; what customers want, what they expect, how to get their orders out quickly, how to give good customer service etc. Small steps, lead to be achievements. Never forget that. Don’t be afraid to experiment.
