Its a good idea to gain customer awareness if you have a certain product you are releasing as well.

Still now, eBay is the best place for the seller to make a samll business. But they have to deal with the trouble with the vicious buyer too.

Yes I agree. eBay is the biggest global market. As I am a new in here I am a new eBay seller as well. It has been selling there only over two months now. I know I don`t have much to tell but I have kind of worry about How I am doing so far as a new seller. I am selling 2- 9 item per day and in the beginning of the month, one or couple of days I have no sales at all. but basically selling 2 item per day. I am listing about 125 items out of 300 monthly selling limits. If you ever been a new seller on eBay of course there must be the differences at their beginning but I would love to hear how I`m doing. is it normal to sell like 2-9 quantities per day? I need to hear from experts global market point of views. I read about lots of tips for new sellers such as ' don`t think about getting profit at first. concentrate getting positive feedback' but I can not just empty my mind just to get positive feedback. Like everyone else, I want sell more with less spending. wanna hear your experiences!

I dunno, since there are a lot of similar sites available with a similar framework, I would not want to go to eBay. It is a sound base to get a lot of reputed customers, but it takes in a lot of charges from the sale these days. And its ruling for buyers gets stringent almost everyday.

Default Is ebay on the edge?

Yes It seems there is more sellers than the buyers on ebay now days. I hear a lot of negative thoughts about selling on ebay but at the same time, I wonder, there is still many many sellers living just earn from ebay alone. it is true that ebay charges sellers fees a lot. sometimes it gives me feeling more likely partner of ebay even though there is non profit. of course, if a few sellers quit today , ebay wouldn`t be shaken in spite of the sound of gunshot.

Why is that so? What do you think could be the reason behind that? Maybe it's your IP..i mean there is something wrong in your IP. .
