  1. Hello Zinette thanks for stopping by and leaving feedback, great question once you have the sale you have to ship the merchandise but you don’t want to choose a product that weighs over 5lbs. in the first place,this problem can be avoided. I hope this answered your question and keep coming by.

  2. Hi Darrell, thank you for your informative post. I still haven’t figured out shipping, though. Does eBay calculate the shipping for you or do you have to dictate that yourself? because when I tried to put up an item for sell, there was a part that asked for shipping details like if it was for local or international. I see that some sellers are able to provide free shipping to even international buyers without the product being overpriced. I was just wondering if you had some tips for me on this. Thank you 🙂

  3. Hello Gomer thanks for stopping by and leaving your feedback and supporting us here. And Gomer eBay does have an affiliate program. Just hit up eBay and register for these holidays coming up. Again thanks for stopping by and take care


  4. Hello thanks for stopping by Edward and leaving feedback. I do believe the product has to look good also to increase sales. So thanks for giving a new perspective and keep coming by and leaving your views

  5. I must admit that even though I’ve bee here for a long time now making money online, the eBay thing is yet to be discovered for me. This article of yours has sparked some motivation for me to dig deeper about making money with eBay. Thank you very much.

    I have a question: Can we make money with eBay like the way we’re making commissions with affiliate marketing? Like for example, instead of selling our own products, just promote other people’s products?

  6. I believe having attractive product image is one of the most important aspects when it comes to catching attention. When we surf marketplaces like Amazon we tend to look out for product image rather than the text itself.

    Of course, having good aftersales service is important as well, but you have to grab the customers’ attention first before you can do anything.
