Top Secret Tip of the Day


ok shhhhhh..... don't tell anybody about this top secret tip I'm going to share with you. It's just between you and me ok?

As you know eBay is just amazing how you can see the same item or brand selling for .99 to $999 - sometimes the same exact item right? Well many eBay sellers are shopping right on eBay for their inventory to resell and so can you.

Here's how I do it. When I am out and about in the retail stores...gasp I know crazy right? If I find a brand I really like I will come home and research and often times find I have pretty good taste, meaning they sell pretty high on the eBay market. So I what I do is set up a saved search with newly listed items being the main order... and I watch for these items to be listed at those very low starting prices... often I can nab them and either have them for my own (yes I do this more than I should) but also for resale... usually at a fixed price with best offer.

Now another little tip - these sellers who list things like this list lots of stuff lower than they should, so I tend to keep watching these sellers, often making multiple purchases and saving on shipping as well!

ok you didn't hear it from me... just our little secret! Have fun!
