Years ago, when I first discovered the internet, eBay was the first site I joined. It was so easy to use and I enjoyed bidding on so many things.Not very computer savvy at all, I learned I didn't have to be on Ebay. Over the years new Auction Sites have come and gone, but I have always remained Loyal to eBay. After-all, they were the first online Auction Site and your bids and merchandise is always protected. However, not all of us have the the time or the skills to really utilize Everything eBay has to offer. So eBay has rolled out the eBay Trading Assistant Program!
Overview of the eBay Trading Assistant Program
Trading Assistants are experienced eBay sellers in your area who will sell your items for you on eBay for a fee. By hiring a Trading Assistant, you can take advantage of their selling expertise, save time and effort, and reap the rewards of selling on eBay. Trading Assistants will do all the work for you, from the valuation, to listing an item and answering customer service inquiries, to collecting payment and shipping the item to the winning buyer. When your item sells, the Trading Assistant earns a commission on the sale and the consignor gets a check for the proceeds after their fees are deducted.
Trading Assistants have to meet specific eBay requirements but they manage their own businesses to provide this service in your local neighborhoods.
Some of the items that sell best are:
• Designer clothing, shoes, and handbags
• Digital and vintage cameras
• Event tickets
• Designer jewelry and watches
• Entertainment memorabilia
• Musical instruments
• Sports equipment
• Sports memorabilia; jerseys
• Antiques, collectibles, toys
• Vehicle parts and accessories
At a group event or meeting, members could consign items they are no longer using and a dedicated Trading Assistant could evaluate them and list the item on eBay. The Trading Assistant would be available to give a quick five minute overview of the program at the start of your event or meeting, and talk about what kinds of products your members could have in their own homes that could be top sellers. Organization members could bring items to the meeting to sell, or just learn about the program and then arrange to have the Trading Assistant sell for them at a later date.
How Awesome is that! Have Items you need to sale but don't have the time, skills or patience? No worries, your Trading Assistant can take care all of that for you! Stop being a Hoarder and get rid of that Clutter! Remember, "One Man's Junk is another Man's Treasure!"
