A ridiculous book, "author" making money from ill-informed sellers,
This review is from: Tricks of the eBay Masters (Paperback)This book is just ridiculous. The "author" came to the eBay Community Boards and basically asked for advice to add to his book. It didn't matter what advice was given or the status/knowledge level of the person who gave it, as long as it filled up more space in his book. Case in point, there are many (too many) blurbs by Big_pink_starfish, a seller who specializes in selling trading cards that are not in high demand. The seller loses money on every single auction she has b/c she has a store, has "extras" on her auctions that cost money, yet sells each item for a quarter AND takes payment by Paypal which is a .30 +2.9 charge for every payment made. She is in the hole every time a sale is made yet this is a "Master". Other blurbs come from those who admit they have never sold a thing on eBay before. These tips are supposed to be from the most successful sellers and buyers? Obviously no research was done on the background of those quoted.
Take my advice, don't buy the book, go... Read more

If you are new to eBay and common sense,
This review is from: Tricks of the eBay Masters (2nd Edition) (Paperback)This is a great book if you lack common sense or judgement deficiency. And this is the 2nd edition. Consider the book eBay the RIght Way instead.

Selling on Ebay? Must read Tricks of the Ebay Masters!,
This review is from: Tricks of the eBay Masters (Paperback)Great book full of all kinds of important information from the sellers who already are making money on Ebay. All our tips and helpful instructions that Ebay members have given daily on Ebay's Discussion & Help boards over several month's time. Right at your fingertips now! In one easy-to-read book.
The chapters are laid out nicely so the reader can go right to the area of selling they need help with: listing auctions, taking pictures, packing & shipping, customer service, HTML, setting up an Ebay store, much more! Different opinions of many buyers and sellers as one-size doesn't fit all.
Great for new sellers just starting out and for sellers who have been on Ebay for years as the market is always changing and competition is growing. Even old dogs need to learn new tricks.
