This video was very helpful!!! New sub here!!!
Tony .Sewell (2 months ago)
I know this is an old post but I am just discovering eBay reselling and watching all your videos and this one as all I've seen so far is so informative and so valuable to me and anyone watching. So Ryan, you had asked in the last video I watched where you wanted to know our status as a newbie or where we were at in our eBay career. I was watching on my big screen t.v and couldn't answer so I'm doing it here as I went and got my laptop. So, I'm a newbie and have sold a few items in the past and I'm really excited to start. I so appreciate all your help! You two are such a beautiful couple inside and out! Thanks again...new big fan!

lol, I'm going through your backlog. This video is from a time long ago (2 years) when Alli insisted on doing her makeup every time she was on camera and didn't know yes that she's the best thing on this channel.

Do you just use a regular printer to print usps shipping labels? Or do you have a dymo?

You guys are TOO cute!!

You said first class mail packages are limited to under 16 ounces but the USPS website says 13 ounces is the maximum. Did this just change? Thanks. Love your YouTube videos.
Victor Torres (9 months ago)

Minne-Florida Livin’ (10 months ago)
Dumb question here, but I have to ask. If the packaging sleeve weighs 5oz, does that count towards the 16 oz for shipping weight?
RALLI ROOTS (10 months ago)
it does yes
icy (10 months ago)
I love these. Please keep posting. Btw, have you guys ever considered eco-friendly packaging for 2018? If so, can you recommend any affordable brands? :)

Hey guys, great video! Just wanted to ask you what tool-on-the-go (cell phone, etc) do you guys use to scan products to sell on eBay and Amazon? Besides the typical Scoutify2, or Amazon seller app. Thanks a lot in advance! Cheers
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
We currently use our phones and the amazon seller app

Since you offer free shipping on ebay, do you add the cost of the shipping into your selling price?
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
Yes, that is correct.

What is the price range considered expensive for getting signature confirmation?
Simon Templar (1 year ago)
Hello Ralli Roots, Do you guys always request to have the signature confirmation from the customers in order to avoid SCAMS?
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
Simon Templar hey. Only on more expensive items. Not on everything
Liz Kellogg (1 year ago)
Good video. I'm just getting started on eBay and knew there had to be cheaper options than UPS. Thanks for the tips! :)
RALLI ROOTS (1 year ago)
No worries! :)

Dan W (1 year ago)
Great video! Is first class mail trackable like priority?
Kristen Stephenson (2 years ago)
Have first class rates changed? I was under the impression that anything under 16 ounces could be shipped via first class. But I am finding different sources online saying 15.99 ounces and under and some saying anything under 13 ounces. That being said, I shipped something the other day that weighed 15 ounces, and lost out on $4 shipping cost. Did this change or am I misunderstanding something?
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
of course :) happy to help
Kristen Stephenson (2 years ago)
Okay that makes sense as I haven't been going through eBay as of yet. Thank you guys for the quick reply!
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Kristen Stephenson we need to update this video as rates have changed yes. On eBay it's still under 16oz for first class. If you go direct through usps it's only 13oz max

Where do you guys get your boxes for those odd shaped/large items? The poly bags seem great for clothes/non-fragile stuff... but I seem to have all these random things I need to box up and boxes/filler can end up being 10-15% of GP if you don't get them in bulk... I was charged $17 for a box and some packing Styrofoam at one of those mailing places (now that's a great scam) -- all for a $130 DVD player. I still made money but not as much! I'm tempted just to dumpster dive and get boxes from retail stores that are throwing them away! Ace hardware had some great ones... Anyway, just curious what you guys use for boxes (and different fillers)... Cheers
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
yikes! that's a lot! mcdonalds is good for free boxes, walmart is good, home depot has large boxes for like $1. and USPS.com has free priority boxes.
sf1111 (2 years ago)
Hi you crazy kids, I did this sort of thing years ago, like 20-25 years ago, before the internet. Went to yard sales, thrift stores, church fundraisers (the best), then went to the local big flea mkt (Raleigh, N.C.) a couple weekends a month and doubled our money, at least. Now that we're retired, here in S. Florida, considering doing the same thing, but going the internet route. People here, at flea mkts , are notoriously CHEAP!!! So the modern, legal way is the way to go. People selling at yard sales are truly AMAZED and GRATEFUL when we don't try to talk them down to a quarter. So please keep up the good work, you are a lot of help, always make sense, always are entertaining. Can't decide which of you is prettier.
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
That's so great! I bet you found some really fantastic stuff!!! :) you are tooo kind! Alli is definitely prettier (but this is Ryan responding so im a bit bias LOL)
Antonio Afanador (2 years ago)
Hi Ryan, My name is Tony and I live in New Jersey and very much interested in selling on eBay. I have been looking at the business of selling on ebay for several weeks. While doing my research on the subject, I came across your videos. I’m reaching out to you because I have watched your youtube videos and I see that you have a lot of experience in selling on eBay. I have noticed that you buy items at whole sale to sell on ebay. I also have noticed that some people are also selling on eBay but they use the drop ship method. I'm just curious as to why you prefer to hold on to merchandise wouldn’t it be simpler to drop ship the items as oppose to storing and shipping items yourself? Before I jump into this business I need to know if this is the right move for me. Any advise that you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Antonio Afanador hi there Tony. Thanks for watching our vids. So to put it simply there's two main reasons why we don't dropship. 1. Most of them are 100% scams. 2. We like to actually see the products we're selling and know what we're offering our customers before we sell the items to them. That's how you keep good feedback. Especially if you're just starting out. If you go straight to drop shipping I can almost guarantee you will lose money. Source locally and cut your teeth and grow from there. Cheers! Ryan
TheJammer765 (2 years ago)
Should you include shipping in cost of item and post it as Free Shipping or just have buyer pay shipping?
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
to each their own but we like to list with free shipping 99% of the time

you find ups ground to be cheaper than fedex ground??

I would love to know how to be a part of the groups if I can.
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
megan place cool! Yeah, we'll grab a beer at coppertail with other resellers every once in a while 😊 we do train people, but it's in small groups online. We're super busy on our own biz or we would do more.
megan place (2 years ago)
Oh awesome I'm from Tampa do you guys ever do meet ups or training of any sort
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
megan place just outside of Tampa

Hi, I have a whole estate I would like to sell, what is the best way to unload a whole Ranch full? Including shipping containers.
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Nani Girl that's something you'd probably want to take to auction. Unless you're willing to sit on it for a while and part it out.

Wow I never knew about that coupon to buy shipping supplies from eBay. I've been a premium store for over a year and have been missing out. Any other benefits I don't know about besides the obvious free listings?

You make a really cute couple, thanks for the video.
ِAli Qawaqneh (2 years ago)
Nice video but I think u wrong bout the heavy items through smart post because when your item is that heavy, Fedex home or ground is definitely cheaper the smart
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
ِAli Qawaqneh you could definitely be right. Depends on where it's going. We shop around for the best rates on with all carriers these are our top favs :)
Hush Paz (2 years ago)
How do you guys ship Jackets?
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)

new to your videos what an adorable happy upbeat couple. I've been selling of and on for 13 years and now going to fulltime. I have learned many things and the cushioned mat to stand on is a great idea! thanks !
Stoke (2 years ago)
Just sold my first item, thanks to you guys and rockstar as my main feed. the scariest thing about this (being new) is shipping. geez, i was like...crap, now what do i do!!??? All in all, i just sorta....guessed and i think it went well...paypal is still pending on his end but it said it went through and i already shipped the item, should i have waited until the payment was settled into my account first before shipping?
Stoke (2 years ago)
think it is waiting for the guy to receive the item. it said the money in is received (still in pending though), told me to ship the item...so i did, and has a shipping tracking number on the page. well see. just weird.
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
COOL! congrats on your first sale, I'm sure there will be many more. You just have to take a deep breath and go for it sometimes. So, you never ever want to ship the item until the payment as cleared your account. Especially if it was an echeck payment that is waiting to clear. Hopefully it's just being held because your account is new and it was safe to ship, just be careful with that, but again congrats and keep it going!
Alli Crafts (2 years ago)
The video with me in it got two thumbs down! No more Alli in videos? Lol
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Alli Con haters gonna hate ;)
May john (2 years ago)
Thanks for the video, this is very insightful stuff. Quick question: Do you use any studio kit for your picture? If you do what kind do you recommend? Also, what kind of camera do you use? I bought some brand new clothing really cheap and my apartment has very bad lighting, so that's why i'm kind of interested.
Shelby West (2 years ago)
Hi! I just found you guys through Nicole & I love your videos. Wondering if y'all are going to Bonnaroo by any chance? I saw the one where you said you love RHCP & I do too!
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
hey :) Nicole is awesome, OMG we weren't even thinking about going but that's a great idea! Super close to us too! I was sad cause when they're playing in FLA we'll be out of the country.
John Driver (2 years ago)
Great info on the UPS wholesale stuff. Thanks! I am in Florida also and I use Fedex smartpost for large boxes as well but I always check the Fedex Ground/Home when shipping because certain weights and dimensions going to certain locations can be cheaper than Smartpost sometimes and they arrive faster. Every now and then there is a sweet spot for Priority mail being the cheapest as well, like in the 6-12 lb area at least that has been my experience. People living in other areas might have other variable shipping anomalies.
Garage Flips (2 years ago)

Chama B. (2 years ago)
excellent vid. I learned early on to save any packaging (I sell on Poshmark). I tell folks in my house to also save their boxes and packing materials for me. It has helped me save so much money. one question, though..for anyone that can help. I'm new to ebay as a seller. I've only had my account for maybe 2 months or so but just started listing a few weeks ago. I seem to be restricted to the amount I can list per month. Is there a way to get out of restriction purgatory?
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Chama B. You have to just list and sell. Once you've proven you have a good track record you can request an upgrade from eBay, usually they'll give you one a month if you stay in good standing.
Joe Beltran (2 years ago)
What's the difference between first class and the flat rate envelope they looked about the same size? Sorry if that's a stupid question I'm new to all of this haha p.s you guys are awesome!
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
no problem at all :) so the difference is the weight you can put in. for first class it has to be under 16oz for the padded flat rate, if it fits it ships so the weight doesn't matter, it can be 10lbs and its still only around $6 to ship.
Travis Floyd (2 years ago)
I love using first class just because it helps with the ROI. other than that priority for everything else. I just never really checked FedEx's shipping cost but will now. It has been an amazing time since I first saw y'all's video with Chris Dunn about garage sales. I have made some easy money and it seems the sales have picked up a lot since my feedback has been building up. Great video and look forward to the next.
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
That's awesome man!! Thank you and keep the hustle strong!

Eco Beast (2 years ago)
Got any tips on why I have watchers on my fixed price listings but no buyers. I tried the free shipping wasn't working out because I had my items listed a bit higher to cover it. I went back to buyer pays shipping and I got the same results. Thank you for any help your willing to share! 🙌🏻🙌🏻
Eco Beast (2 years ago)
Ryan Roots Thanks for the tip! If you wouldn't mind looking at my listing to see what I'm doing wrong lol. One listing is item #162353411889. Again I appreciate your time! I hope to be on your level one day! 👍🏻
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Eco Beast I would need to see the actual listing but with BIN you usually need to be priced under the lowest available price for the exact same item. If you have watchers you could try running a sale. Sometimes we do a 10% off sale to clear out inventory, works well.
Income Strategy (2 years ago)
As usual great video. We just arrived in northeast Ohio where we grew up. Goodwills are a goldmine here. Wish it was summer garage sales are even better. Hopefully by Wednesday we will be in the Orlando area to hit up the bins and outlet Goodwill. Thanks!

Income Strategy (2 years ago)
Yes, we will definitely do that.

jpin78 (2 years ago)
Awesome Videos! I learn a lot from you guys! Question: Do you guys sell on Amazon? Also, if you can share with us in your best opinion on how to avoid getting suspended on eBay so that I can avoid that. I think that'll make a great video. Thanks!
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Yes, we sell to Amazon resellers in bulk as well as FBA. I will see if we can put together some suspension guidelines in the next vids

Kody Amos (2 years ago)
Great video. Way to add value!! Could you speak on tax season if/when folks cross the $20k threshold.
Kody Amos (2 years ago)
+Ryan Roots Sure. I totally get that! I completely understand the prefacing of such topics with disclaimers because folks fail to hold themselves accountable ;) I'm just curious about a vague overview. In brevity, if you will.. Do you keep all your receipts? How do you log garage sale purchases? Do you use a CPA? Tips / tricks? No hard rules. Nothing that people could get sour about if they screwed their self over :(
RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
Thank you :) it's hard to talk about taxes, legal reasons but we will give as much info as we can. Cheers!
Inner G (2 years ago)

RALLI ROOTS (2 years ago)
We like to stick to items that sell well all the time! Clothes, electronics, healthcare all great!
