(3.5 / 5.0)I know my way around eBay, but I thought this might be handy anyway. I read the 9th Edition , and it's a little out of date (I believe you can no longer have active content in your eBay listings, for example)--although it had some resources and advice I was looking for. I skipped past all the Buyer sections I wasn't interested in, instead looking at some Seller pages and bookmarking useful references.
The problem I hit with the Dummie books is that they always seems to fall short of what you really need to know and you only get a general overview. I've been selling on eBay for years, and the only reason I read this latest edition was to see if there were any new tips available. There were not. It's a good jump off point for an absolute beginner. Beyond that, go elsewhere to learn.
This is a good basic book about buying and selling on e-Bay. The author makes it interesting, and gives many examples throughout the book on what she is describing. This book is a valuable source of information and it is written in such a way as to also be entertaining, not dull.
Makes it easy, easy, easy!
Wen you pick up a "for dummies" book, you know exactly what you're getting - a broad overview of all the basics on a specific topic. And this book delivers just that. Nothing more, nothing less.
This is a typical example of the "For dummies" series. The information is simple, easy to understand, not very deep, not terribly technical. It is informative, and it helps get you going if you knowledge about the site is zero or near-zero.This is a photo of the informative pages of the book I read. As you can see, it was a 2016 edition, so I was expecting something new, something that I didn't know, anything besides the very basic. The following image is the table of contents. I, of course j...
My favorite chapters are chapter 11 which talks about where to find items to sell on ebay and chapter twelve which talks about closing the deal and shipping. Because for me the two things I worry about if I sold on ebay would be where to find things to sell and then how to pack what I am selling for shipping. I also learned that there are tools that you can use with ebay. One tool was a website that will bid at the last minute so you don't have to sit in front of you computer and do it yourself....
This author has written a series of "For Dummies" books about eBay which are intended to be read sequentially as you become more advanced in the topic. This is the very first book, and it is for true beginners. It walks you through extremely basic topics such as setting up an account on eBay, learning how to buy, and starting to sell. That's about where it ends. Unfortunately, this was more elementary than I was looking for, but the writing keeps you engaged so I will likely check out one of the...
Per chi è davvero ignorante sul funzionamento di eBay è un ottimo libro.Copre praticamente tutto quello che c'è da sapere per imparare a fare acquisti oculati e vendite. Purtroppo non copre minimamente la parte che interessava a me (i negozi eBay), ed è molto orientato al mercato americano, trattando estesamente le forme di pagamento, di tassazione e soprattutto di spedizione disponibili solo in USA.
Wanted some quick pointers for selling on eBay - not the book for me - made it seem a complicated and expensive process - so much so that I almost didn't bother. Turns out eBay is so simple (and cheap) that I didn't need this book complicating things at all.
This book is out of date, which I don't blame the book for since I bought it at a used bookstore. But what I don't like about it is having to wade through all the attempts at stupid humor to find useful information.
A good resource for anyone who wants to learn about eBay! :)
At a glance, this book promises to provide the info I want/need to sell some kindly used things via the "information superhighway." I can appreciate a book for giving me "just the facts.
This is eBay for Dummies (ebook) 6th ed. 323 pages. Good for a few hints.
October 2010 -- Mary Cheney Library, Manchester, CT -- Very Interesting book about E-Bay
