So you want to sell online? Awesome. There are many avenues to explore and many, many platforms to explore. First let me introduce myself, my name is John and I have been buying and selling online for years. Like, a LOT of years. Put it this way, when I started eBay, you mailed money orders to each other. Seriously.
In that time I have seen all sorts of selling platforms come along, many forms of innovation, and I can say with no uncertainty, this is THE GREATEST TIME TO SELL ONLINE! Let me say it again; THERE IS NO BETTER TIME TO SELL ONLINE THAN RIGHT NOW!
With the “Amazoning” of society, gone are the days of getting up off of the couch and shopping in a brick and mortar store. (Yes, I am aware that people still shop in stores, but this is a blog about online sales! Go with it ☺.) More and more people do their shopping online, and now is a great time to start selling. Whether you have had your interest piqued by Gary Vaynerchuk’s “Trash Talk” Series, or any number of reselling TV shows, your interest has pointed you here, and I welcome you.
I break down reselling into seven categories: Buying (sourcing), cleaning/testing/researching, listing, bargaining (haggling), shipping, and feedback. Once feedback is received, regardless of selling platform, you can consider the transaction over; start spending your money.
