Ebay Power Seller Success Story

Wow.  I have really neglected my ebay blog.  I can't believe how long it's been since I've posted on here.  I can say that I do have a good excuse though.  I started my ebay business about 7 years ago and it has grown and blossomed and helped me to branch out into selling from many other sites as well.  I have been a power seller for several years now, but am finally making enough money to pay the bills.  Now I don't have time to blog, but still try to do it in between working.  Woo Hoo.

I am now teaching others how to do the same.  This is not an overnight success story.  It is a story of building an online business over time.  It is hard work and lots of hours but as you progress and grow your business, you can start adding staff.  That has been my big milestone this past year.  I have one near full time worker and one part time worker assisting me.  That allows me to go to my granddaughter's dance competitions or take a weekend off once in awhile or even take a week day night off.

Thanks to modern technology, I can take my business with me anywhere to keep up with correspondence and listings.  I can even take my products with me if I want to, but I would really need a big trunk so instead, I just hire someone to take over when I need a well-deserved week off.

My advice to anyone who wants to make money on Ebay is to just do it.  There is no real simple formula.  Just find a market niche that you have an interest in and do some research.   See how many people are buying the types of products you want to sell.  Find a reliable, trustworthy drop shipping company if you don't want to handle your own products (see the suggestions in my posts and on the sidebars), or find distributors to buy your products directly from if you want to have all of the control.  Since feedback is important on Ebay, making sure your dropshipping partner is reliable is all important.  You want your customers to be happy.

You might want to visit my online store which branched off as a result of my hard work on Ebay.  You can find it at    The competition in this product line is fierce but after ordering online courses, reading and studying about what it takes to succeed, applying it and then just doing it, I have been able to keep up with my competition by being on the first few pages of google.  This is no easy task and takes a bit of weekly work, but it's been worth it.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope some of my articles are helpful.   I do recommend books about Ebay and other products to help get you started as I don't have time to write my own.  You can check me out on Ebay under kawasakiguy89 if you do an advanced search.  You will find the advanced search option to the right of the Ebay search bar.  Click on it and then scroll down until you see the place to put the seller's username.  Type it in and then click go or continue.  You will see all of my ebay listings. We are adding new products monthly so please come back and visit when you can.

Hi Margeret
interesting post.

i have a question maybe YOU can answer.
i have a 300000$ wholesale in beads and swarovski. problem is that i am located in israel. registered post [sign-for service] takes sometimes 21 days which makes very unhappy customers. do you have any suggestion for me?
i thought of putting USPS stamps and shipping it to someone who can just open the box and put it into a mail box for me.
Maybe there is such a service?
