I am kinda new to YouTube but you have a series of eBay lessons setting up not sure how to find them and kinda figured out how to add them to a eBay add list but can not find these series you have. I want to watch all that you have up to current ones you have made. Sorry I am a little slow lol
Hi, I am your new channel subscriber, Thank you for your great video. I have created the store category some weeks ago and I did really notice an increase in sales.
Do you have any tutorials on how to Make Templates, Banners & Logos For my eBay Store?
Hi ....anyone got any answers for me? i had about 20 late deliveries over a one year period which was no fault of mine as i am not the postal services and have no control over them. Of course ebay dont care about the postal services being late, its basically my fault????/ anyway ebay took away my above standard account and put it to below standard. i now struggle to get one sale a month. I have tried everything to increase sales but my account stays completely dead. has anyone got any ideas as i am so angry & frustrated? thanks
I'm so frustrated, when I go to my seller Hub and click on my little door it doesn't give me the opportunity in the right hand corner to manage my store. in your video you have that highlighted bar and I don't have that. help me out Rockstar please
Make sure when you do your categories you make them keyword effective. Meaning it is under keyword that describes your item (more searches "Tops" or "Shirts" which would be more effective) from a trusted source (Ebay.com). Which means you show up on Google.com and Ebay.com search ranking. Meaning more chances to sell your item. Just general SEO which will get you more traffic.
Came across this again even though I have a playlist for all your vids buddy. Thanks a million-You always make things so simple to do for the ones like me whom aren't tech savvy. On my way! Took notes. Thanks a mil-Casey! Hi to Kate and hope you guys aren't getting to much rain-We need it bad up for moms pasture. Thanks a million buddy. Blows your mind-Blows my mind how fast you grew-I knew you would because you "Rock" Casey! Take care my friend. I thought I missed the meet up-duh it's June 17th-and looking 4ward to it big time. I'm going to see if my daughter will come with me-Is ok if I bring my granddaughter Please or I may not be able to make she's a good little girl. As long as she has food that child is a happy camper. You know I told you she kept them hostage from me so when I really got see her and interact w/ her my daughter was like mom she's not going to come to you because she doesn't know you. We were at outback I said the heck she won't "give me the bread I win her over" and I just kept tossing pieces of bread into her mouth only cause she had already bit her mommys finger. lol I won her over like no tomorrow 😘🤣🤣🤣🤗
Hi i just upgraded to ebaystore and was wondering if you have any tutorials on how to use an ebay store because i just found it a bit all over the place as when i was in the origianl ebay (no store) seems to be easier but i want to know how to naviagte using my new ebay store if you can direct me to some basic tutorial on using ebaystore most appreciated cheers maria Australia
Have you done a video yet on how the system you use to keep track of inventory? I don't know if you have a warehouse or just a lot of room in your home but when someone orders from you, what system do you use to know exactly where that item is located?
Yes I have several videos on it. we have a small office and in our garage, that doesn't make a big difference where you store it, whats important is HOW you store it. Get bins and label them with bin letters and then each item should have a number so you can label it. A-1. A-2 A-3. A-4 etc... all the way to A-20 and then B-1 B-2 B-3 etc
John Traynor there should not be a charge sir because you are already paying for a store & all your doing is using eBay's tools to set the categories up. Hope that helps you-For, if you haven't done it yet, I forgot but I'm in my way now. Just finished taking notes on how to's. Casey is awesome and explains it so easily at least I can understand for I'm not tech savvy at all
So I've just got ahead and categorized everything in my store. How do I now drive traffic into my store from my listings? Does it happen automatically since I've categorized or do I need to explicitly state that I have a store and that people should go look at it?
Is there a way to edit the category of my current item for sale that already has bids? I have a high profile coffee canteen for sale but it is listed under coffee beans and I need to switch it to the company that made the canteen. My Ebay page is not setup as a store.
Hey man , i'm also in florida , aspiring to start an ebay career, i dont have an ebay store, i have just a personal account is that going mess with sales? I would greatly appreciate the help!!! I'm also subscribed!!!
check out my ebay:
+GMal G Electronics and video games sell fast and decent profits. Clothes are AMAZING profits but slow sellers, you kinda have to build an inventory up. They cost nothing and when they sell its awesome, but to start fast stick to hot items like electronics and games. Toys is also good. Remember they are higher risk than clothes because your spending more and they have moving parts.
RockstarFlipper im looking to make $300 a week starting out, what do you think i should focus on? Clothes? Electronics? Whats the high selling areas? Im so thankful for the advice!
This is funding my schooling and everyday cost. You're an inspiration man, thank you!
Great video. I've always used categories but I completely forgot about the keywords. Very important to remember to change your keywords cause ebay prefills them with total crap, lol. So thanks for the video, off to change my keywords.
Thank you for posting this video. It makes sense that you would have your own store in categories, but I've never really thought about it or done it. So, thanks again to you and the person that told you to do this. I'm going to organize mine better now before mine gets to be too big.
unfortunately this doesn't work for Mobile, The only people that can see this are people on computer's. I know I've never bought nor listed anything on eBay using a computer :( and I don't own one so I have to do this through a mobile browser which is such a pain Haha but I'm going to. think I'm finally going to get a store, insertion fees add up quickly.
+Wade Kutella Yes bays fee is 10% unless you get top rated then its 8%. If you need motivation when sales happen it motivates me big time. Just bite down and list list list and then youll see sales come in, once the sales start that all the motivation youll need
What is FVF? I'm a total newb and am starting with stuff I already have lying around the house. Made my first sale a couple weeks ago and did very well but am finding it hard to find time to do anything with it. I definitely want to do this full time someday. Also finding it hard to find the motivation. It all seems really overwhelming right now. How do I get past that? How did you do it? Thanks for the videos, they are awesome.
Thanks for another great video. I just started and set up categories before I saw this so I guess I am doing something right. Is there a way to set the store category as you list? To me that would be easier! Secondly I was wondering if you have done any auctions? I have gone to three and have gotten lucky each time. I was wondering what your take was on doing it this way? Any info you provide will be helpful. Thanks again you are the rockstar!
I Dont do any auctions sorry i have almost no experience with auctions. You can't add categories as you go persay i don't think. You just go to the category page and add it after you create a new listing and then add any items after that
But I didn't buy the wrong things 😂 if you can check out my ebay it's OpsTek. I buy the normal stuff that should sell for $12 people offer me $7 keep in mind I pay between $1-2 for most of my shirts I don't have a outlet
+RC Model Reviews If you reduce the price several times and use best offer and they don't sell then either you bought wrong and you have to take a loss on them, or you have to group them together if possible??
+RockstarFlipper yeah I have things ending in a few days that I'm going to have to relist,i don't know how much more I can lower my prices, I got things really cheap and some just seem like they don't draw any interest.
Question do you use terapeak and what do you think of it. I am not so sure signed up for free trial see small benefits but not much. What do you think? Thanks for sharing this video and good luck on your hauls
Great Video as Always,Casey! Thank you. Just rec my computer back yesterday, now it's organizing my room and busting butt getting to listing. I could never figure out the store category you made it so simple thanks a mil-for I'm not tech savvy at all. First and utmost-You and Kate have a Safe trip and Drive Safe-it's the other crazy S out there, Trust me! Congrats on whomever is getting married and many many years to follow! Well Wishes. Stay Real that's best Quality about you-Being "For Real"- and no bs or sugar coating😀💜👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Kelly!! Thanks ill drive safe promise. Long ride but I'm going to enjoy it in my car i hope. We just booked the hotel and all setup with wifi and everything so i can post a video Q&A friday night. Saturday after the wedding i might put up a quick one. and then driving home sunday i might do a "TRIP VIDEO"
Hard to take a cat using the moniker 'RockstarFlipper' seriously, but even I have to admit that your videos are food for thought. So I will now try a few of your tips & see what happen's. However should success by trying them elude me, I will be coming to hunt you down. Just messing w/you. Cheers!!!
Yes the categories does help. If you would like to get your items found and up your ranking in the search engines FIX category Keywords. E bay just throws anything in for the keywords, You need to go change those. Be careful to not use the same words more than 3 times or the search engine will kick it out for key spamming. Happy listing!
Secondarily not to take away from RockStar he has a great audience I beat him down on this and I feel a bit bad but it is crazy he is doing the video. I suggested this.. just general advice. Use something to promote your store in your listings. Say check out my eBay store for other great deals and similar items. Store categories also gives you easier ways as a seller to check what you have and create specific sales for categories. Maybe sweatshirts are out of season it makes it much easier to do a eBay store sale on those if it is categorized properly. Also you give buyers leads toward purchasing more items. It may also give you an idea of if your category runs low of what you need to source more of. As a long time eBay seller 10+ years nothing is crazier to me than someone who has an eBay store but has all 1,000+ items under OTHER as the only store category. Even if you have a few hundred make the categories more specific, the more you have maybe you consider using sub categories with brands, sizes, etc. With the Tools eBay has its easy. Not like you have to go through each one individually anymore.
Glad you took my advice. I am not 100% sure how much difference it makes but I highly suggest going into your store and changing the Keywords for your Categories. Because eBay will throw out some goofy stuff prefilled in their.
Great tip! I'll have to do this if I get further into eBay selling. I really love your channel and how you've been doing your videos. Keep up the great work! I'm new to this stuff, and have a question regarding taxes. If I start selling on eBay and sell things for profit, how do you deal with reporting sales on things that are just your own personal items that have depreciated? Like, let's say I have a video game re-selling business on eBay where I buy games for $5 but sell them for $10, I understand I report those sales and profits on my taxes. But let's say I also have some of my own personal games that I bought for $60 when they were new and need to get rid of them so I sell them on eBay for $20 since they just depreciated over time. If I sell that under my eBay account, I can't report it as a loss since it wasn't intended to be for business, but I still need to report it as income since I'm getting $20 in my Paypal account. How do you handle selling your own personal items under your eBay account that have depreciated over time? Should I create a separate eBay and Paypal account for personal items? I think I still would have to report it anyways, but they'll end up being a loss since they will depreciate (like old clothes, games, etc. that I no longer use). Just not sure how to handle things like that. Thanks so much, I appreciate your time!
To avoid getting taxed on it, just mark it as a personal sale item and if you get audited show how long you have had it etc.. Im sure the IRS is lax on that if you don't have a receipt for each and every personal item
Thanks for the reply, I wouldn't want to claim it as a cost of goods, I just want to avoid being taxed on a depreciating item that was bought for personal use and that I've lost money on. I just wasn't sure if there was a way to handle selling your personal items on eBay that you don't make a profit on. But I probably should read up a bit more on this, I was just curious if there was an easy way to handle it.
If its a personal asset and you don't have a receipt you COULD claim it as a cost of good, HOWEVER if you get audited you won't be able to prove the cost and youll be in big trouble. You could put a small COG on the item and maybe it would be better but if i don't have a receipt i don't claim it as Cost of goods.
I Have never gone down that route but i would recommend researching many many styles and types before putting money into 1 thing. Make sure you find the good sellers, and the ones that don't move. thank you
Went to a new Goodwill Outlet in Illinois last week, they have so much stuff it would takes days to go through it all. It's all in the big boxes that the individual stores use to box it up to send it to the outlet. They set out over 15 boxes of bags/purses, 20 boxes of shoes, over 50 boxes of clothes, plus toys, stuffed animals, glassware and all the other stuff you normally find in the outlet, but its not all mixed together, its still separate. Found about 10 original vintage coach bags, 10 modern coach bags, tons of Victoria secret bags. Have you tried selling those types of items??
The new store is in Jacksonville IL. My wife showed me how to tell the difference, if they are very plain inside they are probably real, but if there is a pattern material inside of a coach its fake. Had to sort through about 50 knock offs to find 20 real ones. She found one LV that she thinks is real but needs to get it certified, its selling for over $300 on ebay.
Start by selling some extra items you have. I am little over 10 years into selling on eBay. I started when I was like 16 years old. My biggest tip is you have to get serious and take a risk. I got scammed for $800 when I was 17 trying to bulk buy items. It was my life savings as a High School kid. I had partnered with a friend. I paid back the $400 I was scammed for because I made the call on dealing with this individual. Took the small amount of product I had left and just kept at it. It gave me just enough to stay in the game. With smart phones and technology stuff the great thing is you can start picking thrift stores for cheap. In 2004-2005 when I started you had to have off the brain knowledge or be able to call someone to look something up.
hey bro i like your videos. i have a 2 questions for you. (1) i want to start a heat press t-shirt business what's your honest opinion on that since you have a lot of experience selling do you think its worth it or should I do something else. (2) on which websites can i sell them. my email address is [email protected] hope to hear from you thanks.
