Thanks so much for this video! Just listed my very first item today, got an offer and almost accepted it, but did some research and came across this video. I countered and they countered back. Got another offer and I countered that one. THEN, a few hours later I got a full payment no problem! Yay!

I find dealing with best offers the hardest thing to do. This advice helped confirm what my brain already knew. Can you do a video on how to make decent profit when thrift stores are too expensive? I live in australia and find it hard to make good profits reselling because the thift stores are getting too expensive.

Question: When Ebay switches over to requiring free returns to keep Top Rated Seller Plus....will you offer free returns on all items including very heavy items that the shipping would be a lot? and what happens with items that are shipped overseas through Ebay's international shipping program.

@rally HOW do you price? Do you choose highest previously sold amount? Do you just randomly choose somewhat arbitrarily? Thanks!

EBay emails me and tells me they revised some of my listings to include lowball best offers. Grrrrr!!!!! Even listings that have been up for only a week. Listings that I clicked on no offers that are already low priced plus 25% off, they add best offer Willy nilly. So I have to go in manually and change them back to no offer. This is all on the new app and I don't know how to make eBay stop. Am I the only one??

Im selling these used sneakers and they're selling for around 80$ w/o shipping costs normally, and I just recieved an offer for 72.50 plus shipping. I know I should just take the money and move on but Im not sure if I should wait for a better one. I also wont be selling for that much longer.
John Dough Actually in your case, holding firm maybe your best bet. Remember it only cost around 10-20 cents per month a listing, so don't be afraid to hold out. Shelfing for 5 months will cost you $1 max.
John Dough I would have sold. Though it can also depend on if you need extra space for new inventory!
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
Take the offer lol. Idk what your buy cost is but that's only a 10% discount

I know this video is an older upload but definitely needed! I'm reselling an item and did research on it. Its being sold for 50-70 bucks and someone offered me $12. It's happened more than once and as a new reseller I was really confused and wasn't sure if I should take the $12 or not.
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Hold to your guns! :) you can also set auto decline with best offer. If I have something listed for $50 I would set it it auto decline anything under $30. Saves you from those low offers.

Do you's do Sales with Best Offers & Free Shipping Combined & do you get all your pkgs scanned at the post office or just drop them in the mailbox w/o getting them scanned?

hi, your videos are great and the work you do with your wife really inspires me. I'm a long time ebayer, I was wondering if you could do a video on how you handle inventory: organization, labeling, storage..etc. I have my items in labled boxes. About how many items do you have in inventory? How many listed on ebay at one time? Thanks! I appreciate all the info you provide.

What do you do with items you can't sell on e-bay? lower the price and just wait it out? have you ever thrown out or donated items?
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
most of the time we research the items so well before we buy them that we know they will sell. 98%+ of our inventory sells within a couple months. The rest we donate yes.

Solid advice.

Cheers Chris!

Cory Lewallen (2 years ago)
Ryan!! How's it going, you guys along with Chris Dunn have inspired me and my wife to better our financial outlook. We have 2 kids and really are looking for a side source of income to pay for our annual family vacation. We have made some money selling things around the house to build up some capital but we are really struggling to locate any legit wholesale places and the thrift and garage sells are slim. I would love some advice or ideas. Thank you!
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
That's awesome Cory, glad we could inspire a bit. Have you seen our master class that we do? We're going to be doing another one here in the next week or two that focuses primarily on wholesale. I would recommend you jump on that. :) thanks!
Mark (2 years ago)
I am not sure if a step by step on your listing process would make a good video but I am curious as to how you go about listing? It takes me about 10 minutes an item. Listing is the only thing I dislike about this business...well that and rude customers. Rude customers would make for another interesting video.
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
gotcha. those are both great topics. I'll try to talk about them in upcoming vids.
Tom Hill Fishing (2 years ago)
So Ryan, you buy all of your stuff from local wholesalers, garage sales, and charity shops?
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Not exclusively, but yes those are definitely ways we source.

I like that saying! great comment.
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Thanks Shawn! We typically have 3-500 listed at once. Not as man as some but we turn our inventory very fast and we also move thousands of items to our wholesale buyers each month. We use pallet wood for our backgrounds.
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Thank you! Depends on our inventory but usually about 300 listings but about 500 items total. We use pallet wood for our background in the pictures.
Shawn Pharr (2 years ago)
Ryan Roots hi Ryan, great video's...how many items do you typically have listed at any given time? What does your pics background look like? Thx
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
You know we will! Tnx
