What is the best time to hit the thrift stores? Every time I go there is little to no profitable items. Its like people ransack the stores as soon as possible with everyone trying to make money flipping things. So when is the best time to hit the stores? Thank you I love your vids!!!!

Rockstar flipper I have a question I'm just starting selling on eBay it's about shipping I don't have a printer is there another way to ship without having to print out a eBay label I'm just getting started and I intend to be
Jimmy Griffin (5 months ago)
Rockstar Flipper I really appreciate all the helpful information that you share on your channel. We started using a free software a few months ago www.vlazoo.com it has really helped us to manage our ebay biz and we have saved over a $1,000 in shipping already. I would like to know why no one is doing any reviews or tutorials on www.vlazoo.com?

Free Shipping is the way to go. Incorporate the cost of shipping into the price, AND then write off the shipping price on your quarterly taxes... Win win!

I do free shipping on most items yes

I weigh the item in the packing materials n box I'll ship it in. And I live in Florida so when calculating shipping I figured out and use the furthest point zipcode from me in the USA, which is in Alaska, to calculate shipping.

Shipping is the biggest killer for ebay...I use a rule of thumb that whatever you want for your item...add 30% to that number; you'll usually make a profit if you bought it for cheap and you're selling it dear...

Get a motion activated camera at your shipping table to record everything you put into packages and the labels while putting a date stamp on it. Shoot it lo-res and save it to an external hard drive. Dump the data after a few months.

Thanks so much for making this video. Interested in getting started and this is some good information to know. Definitely subscribing. 👍🏽
propfella (24 days ago)
1. Now let's talk about the 10 mistakes people make when recording their videos. SIT STILL. You're not the best looking guy around, put your camera at eye level and don't keep moving toward the camera. 2. Keep your hands out of shot. You don't need them to speak, keep them below the camera's view. It's distracting and unprofessional. 3, Calm down. keep your voice at a moderate level, at times your were close to shouting at us. 4. Don't dictate, you're giving advice. You're not some policeman catching us doing something wrong. You're telling us we MIST NOT do something and then say do what you like BUT etc. etc. 5, Leave your mouth and nose alone, if it itches, hit pause, scratch it, and record. 6, Have items you wish to use as examples close at hand. Very Unprofessional to almost go out of shot trying to reach for something. 7. Don't keep moving the camera. It shouldn't be in a position to be moved. Keep your tripod away from your desk. 8. Don't wave pieces of paper or large objects in front of the camera, You can verbally tell us, there's no need to show us. I'm sure we all know what a piece pf paper looks like. 9. find yourself a better backdrop. You can hang something on the wall behind you to break it up. At the moment it's very stark and colorless. Some people buy a large sheet of coloured blue or green cloth and hang it behind them, then overlay a background during edit. It's easy to do and once you've set it up it takes seconds to do next time. 10. Last one. Use a little dress sense. You're calling yourself a Rockstar and looking like a delivery boy. No need for a tie, just something better than a drab green worker's shirt. This is meant as friendly advice, these are run of the mill tips many YouTubers can use. By following them you will show some professionalism and who knows you may get more viewers. We appreciate it when someone goes to the trouble of looking good and sounding good. Don't ask where my videos are, they're all over the world in TV newsroom archives. I'm retired as a Journo/ cameraman and the last thing I want to do is make more videos. 16 years averaging 6 or 7 stories a day, 365 days a year was enough, plus I'm now disabled due to my service in Vietnam, I';m now 70 and my days are spent in bed and using the Net. In those 16 years I learned a lot from others. and I like spreading it around to those I think can use a hand. Believe me I don't do this for everyone and I've never made a list of 10 before. A hell of a lot of them would only abuse me for trying. Good luck and I hope 2019 will be a good year for you in Ebay.
RockstarFlipper (24 days ago)
You just started a comment with "your not the best looking guy" and you think im going to respond positively to you? You have to be kidding right... In all honesty I should go off the rails and tell you how much of a prick you are for writing what you wrote.. but ill be the more mature one and let you go back to your miserable life.

I just found 'Velcro' listings on ebay today as well 27/12/2018
RockstarFlipper (28 days ago)
correct... and you'll find fake LV purses and Fake Rolexs also... doesn't mean they are ok... If Velcro or Gerber (owner of the word onesie) wants them taken down... they will come down

Jesus Is The Way (1 month ago)
I'm a new seller, and I noticed you do a lot of, Free Shipping - Best Offers, and your prices are low already, how does that work out for you, and what do you usually take on a Best Offer, I mean like a few bucks below your price, If I may ask please ? I am struggling with both of these issues. I sell Curriculum, Books, Clothes & Shoes at the moment. I just want to do well. Thank you very much !
Jesus Is The Way (30 days ago)
Thank you very much +RockstarFlipper , I really liked your video. You remind me of a friend I use to run around with way back when, he hustled tools every where, do flea markets this was way before ebay, and he could sell a used wrench to anyone, you seem like a go getter to me. God bless !

I’ve sold a few items on eBay and purchase many more but I see a trend and kinda am at a loss for non existing items listed. Example...I’ve purchased an item and I’ve gotten an answer back saying we’re sorry but the item you purchase after checking our stock is unavailable. Here’s a refund sorry for the inconvenience. This happened with a car part from more than one seller to me recently. Another time I watched for a specific tool and got a really good deal on it because I bid on it at the last moment. It wasent listed very well so I think the traffic to it was light thus my good by right. Well the seller contacted me and said unfortunately my warehouse had a fire and the item was destroyed. I didn’t know I had a way to punish a seller for not having an item that was posted for sale other than bad feedback which would be wrong if the seller truly did have a fire or miscalculated stock. One last thing I’ve noticed is an item for sale say a starter for a car. The seller doesn’t have a picture of the starter but a picture of the car itself. This leads me to believe that the seller doesn’t possess the item but he went to the junkyard and snapped a picture then just gives a lame I’m sorry but the item burned up or miscalculated stock excuse
RockstarFlipper (1 month ago)
it happens alot... they oversell.. or run out of stock and make up excuses in hopes the buyer dosnt punish them. Theres no way to confirm it one way or the other

I'm absolutely astounded, I'm going to have to do some research because it's hard to believe that the word velcro and onesie cannot be inserted in a title or description because a lot of people on eBay wouldn't know this. surely this is just a myth because thinking about it the majority of people on eBay wouldn't know this
RockstarFlipper (2 months ago)
ITS 100% NOT A MYTH. I can show you the screenshots, or you can join my facebook group with 101k members for free and make a post asking and you'll see hundreds of people who have been hit with it. Velcro is probably the worst....if the item is an ACTUAL velcro branded item your suppose to be able to use the word but they will come after you. Most items with velcro are not actually velcro though. They are a product similar to velcro, and thats why they are so harsh. Also with onsie, Gerber owns the word and the product and won't allow anyone to use it.. Do your research but I guarantee you if you ask my group of 101,000 sellers you'll find out with a quickness its a huge NO NO along with dozens of other things
absolutely fantastic one of the best I've seen on YouTube very professional straight to the point good information. I totally agree with you dropshipping is basically spam on eBay and I absolutely hate it unless you have the physical product you shouldn't be masquerading on eBay pretending you do, more than likely you will be providing the customer with very very bad customer service and additionally your products are coming from China then they're going to take a lot longer which is also very misleading to the customer. I have never had one negative feedback on eBay because I resolve every single problem very quickly and if a customer says they haven't received their product I send a second recorded delivery straight away.

Nick Fleming (2 months ago)
The company that has the trademark for velcro would get trounced in court if they tried to enforce it and someone fought back. Trademarks lose their enforceability when they become generic terms; in other words, when nobody is actually referring to a specific company's product when they use it. Nobody even knows this company exists who are trying to say they have that trademark. In velcro's case, another term doesn't even exist for that material, what are other companies who make velcro shoes going to do? "Buy our shoes that tighten with 2 strips of fabric that stick together!"

The biggest mistake is fooling with eBay all together! eBay policies allow for customers to scam sellers waaay to much.

Number 1 is bs because Its not copyright if you are selling something you arent stealing from them it falls under fair use. If that was the case it would be illegal to sell anything at all.
RockstarFlipper (3 months ago)
Your right and your wrong. Technically speaking when you list a nike shirt on ebay even a used one from a garage sale, you have the right to resell the item because of the first sale doctrine but what you DONT have the right to do is use the word nike or their logo in a listing and they CAN have it removed if they wanted.

Issue #4 - I box and weigh and print out item by item, I don’t have high high volume, but I keep the print label open cause if it doesn’t print, I have to go navigate many pages to reprint if I closed the window.
Lara CS (3 months ago)
I’ve accidentally swapped labels. A couple times. Thankfully I apologize profusely and get them to ship to each other. And been blessed with nice buyers who were happy enough with my kissing ass and reimbursing the extra labels. Give an honest excuse but tailor it to the item.

Amazon doesn't have to solicit eBay sellers, eBay is doing a fine job of making their sellers choose to sell on Amazon. eBay is going under if they don't treat the sellers better. I maybe wrong but, seems like they are being sore losers instead of upping their game.
wjb722 (3 months ago)
Listening to all this stuff, and it's all just part of one way to make money, really drives it home for me (again, I've experienced this thought many times before) that we need to change the design of our society. It wouldn't be perfect, just much better. And people love to say "that wouldn't work", "that's utopia", etc but to not even give it a chance is the stupidest thing ever. We've been using money and/or trade for thousands of years, and we've also had suffering, starvation, crime, etc along with it. When will it be time to really try something different that hasn't been tried before??? Resource based economy, The Venus Project, ubuntu contributionism, The Zeitgeist Movement are some things to research if anyone is interested, if you're tired of working your life away, worrying about how you're going to survive, dreading going to work, tired of being scared of people committing crimes...you get the idea. Ubuntu contributionism is currently being done by the mayor in N. Frontenac, Canada and he posts updates on a facebook page - One Small Township - North Frontenac

I was very careful when choosing what pc to order, being sure it had the correct monitor connection, but then the ebay seller sent me the wrong one! I asked him to send a free adapter after explaining, he agreed but ended up not sending it and not communicating with me further except to accuse me of getting the pc for practically nothing (he had best offer option but I paid what he asked!) and other BS. I pointed out that if ebay people were doing their jobs, they'd see that I was in the right, because all messages were going through ebay. So yeah, that was a huge inconvenience to me, and still pisses me off when I think about it over a year later. I ended up buying an adapter, spending more money because of HIS mistake and a-hole attitude. I always look at ratings and very rarely buy from someone with low ratings. It's not fair to other buyers if I didn't leave an accurate rating, he lied and didn't correct his mistake.

Hello, I have watched a couple of your videos. I am a new quickly rising ebay seller. I started selling less than 6 months ago, I started with 600 dollars and now sell well over 20,000 dollars of product a month. I also have close to 400 reviews at 98.5 % positive feedback. I tell you this just you give you an idea of how quickly rising and how little experience I have. I sell a lot multiple quantity listing anywhere from 2 - 100pack listings. Recently I have been dealing with a rise of customers saying that they are getting their packages a few items short in bigger quantity listings. I am not sure how I am supposed to handle these accusations , as I package all my items myself and know for a fact the number quantity that goes into the package due to my process. I am seeking any advice you (RockstarFlipper) or any others may have on how to react to these situations still treating my customers with respect and integrity, but also not allowing myself to be scammed out of items that where not missing. I thank you for taking the time to read this and respond, all advice is very much appreciated. Regards Tyler

Great video overall, but wow, you "hate dropshippers"? Pretty harsh words. You do realize some of your friends in the Green Room do drop-shipping videos, right? I like your content, man, but after watching this one you seem kind of hostile. I get bringing up drop-shipping as a warning, but the way you presented it is a little over the top. People don't just drop-ship because they're "lazy and cheap". It's a great business model when done correctly. I've done really well with it. You wouldn't just start drop-shipping from a random supplier without getting samples and vetting their quality and shipping process. Great stuff, but insulting some of your audience members probably isn't a great idea. You don't know what area of your sales all of your viewers are in.
Brandon Shealy (4 months ago)
+RockstarFlipper All good. Keep making great videos. You know your stuff 👍🏼
RockstarFlipper (4 months ago)
Well 2 years ago I probably worded it wrong, but 100% I dont hate someone for their business model... Def not. I hate the business model. And iv actually done some drop ship deals that iv made good money on. I know what im doing of course, and how to stay safe.. some people dont :-(
Brandon Shealy (4 months ago)
+RockstarFlipper  RockstarFlipper  My mistake, you said, "I absolutely hate people that drop-ship." at 21:51. I'm not trying to be petty, but you can understand how that may come across to someone who does drop-ship and enjoys your videos. I see where you're coming from on your end. I do still find your content very valuable and am glad you share it.
RockstarFlipper (4 months ago)
I dont hate people who drop ship.. NEVER said that. I Hate DROPSHIPPING.. the business model. Totally different. #2- This video is 2 years old lol....I barely knew the green room members or anyone for that matter then. #3- I drop ship... and have drop shipped plenty of times.. I hate it still. The reason im so harsh on it is something you viewers won't understand until you become a voice on youtube or social media, basically what happens is... someone watches me who has ZERO experience, ZERO idea whats going on, goes and drop ships, then comes back after losing everything and blames me somehow/someway. By being this harsh, if someone trys to pull that crap I can say..heres the video I CLEARLY WARNED YOU. If Im wishy washy about it, they literally will say "you made it seem ok so I tried and lost my life savings". Yes I know its their fault and shame on them, but you would be surprised the emails I get, and then those same people go tell 1,000 people im garbage and not pay attention to me and boom...business and viewers lost. Even though those 1,000 people have no idea.

Thanks for explaining dropshipping. Im a first time seller on eBay. And im trying to learn all i can. I sold my first item a week ago. And the only thing i did wrong was i didnt have a scale. And i let eBay calculate it. And it was a couple oz over. But i got it fixed. Had it shipped and the customer recieved it. Without losing anything. But im subscribing bro. You explain things really good. Dropshipping sounds scary lol. I'll be taking your advice!!!

Diane Beland select the “global shipping option”. If your in the USA it works. Otherwise it might not be available
Don Mega (5 months ago)
20:00 dropshipping isn't about luck. if you arrange proper supply lines, meaning you have alternative suppliers and do everything properly, such as state the estimated delivery times will be long, you can run a dropshipping business. i wouldn't do it though for the amount of headache and i like to remain as close to 100% in control as possible. 24:00 atleast in UK there is an official seller for Velcro. they had mine closed, yet I see plenty of others who clearly are selling fake velcro still being listed, cos they're not competitive like mine was. they only bother filing vero against serious competition.
Don Mega (5 months ago)
9:40 if you mistyped a counter offer and don't want to send it then simply say you sent it without tracking, but in reality don't send it at all. at least you won't get a defect for canceling the sale. 17:30 if you oversold what you had in stock the solution is the same.

#1 mistake: shipping anything to south america. that place is full of scammers and thieves. they will even scam you on $5 items, they're that desperate for money.

You should always use the GSP to ship because its safe

Well so much for my plan of finally being able to make some extra money for my family :/ I'm not lazy though, I'm unable to work outside of home, I have been racking my brain for weeks on how to make money when I barely have any to start with, so I can't go out and buy stuff to sell like y'all do. I was seriously considering drop shipping, but using actual department stores as my "source" like Walmart, Target, Wayfair , etc Guess I have to go back to the drawing board. Trade mark - on Onsie's - what else are they supposed to be called though? lol that is what the outfit is called
What do these companies have teams of people patrolling eBay for these trigger words!? Fucking ridiculous

I don't understand global shipping program.. can someone help me out? I do not want the scenario you mentioned of having to ship $20 for a $10 item. what do I have to do to protect myself????

im really interested in amazon fba drop shipping in the future but I know its no joke and that it requires $ and time. but ebay has been a really nice introduction to everything for me

youre the man! made my first $70 off a couple listings on ebay today. youre channel is right to the point and so helpful. this is the first step in paying back my student loans (one year left of school... need about $15k more) but it doesn't feel like such a crazy mountain to climb. as soon as im done selling all the extra stuff around my house Im gonna check back and see what your videos have to say about choosing products to sell or if I need to have a niche etc....

when you make a new listing under the shipping option check the box that says GLOBAL SHIPPING. Shipping direct international is risky.. I wouldn't
Dennis P. (5 months ago)
RockstarFlipper I understood that from reading ebay policy about it. However, is it automatically a thing your account does? And is there an option I need to click in order to protect myself from international shipping? Last bonus question haha is there a reason you'd ever international ship directly yourself instead of gsp?

Global shipping program is exactly the same as shipping an item inside the USA... you ship toe bays warehouse in Kentucky and they handle the rest
