Hi, I know it's out of topic, but are u in need of VA?

This is one of the best video's you guys put out for me, I really like the large hanger and backdrop setup..also the tip regarding customers that are watching your items...giving a 5% discount to boost sales...I really enjoy your video's and Callie's humorous personality

How do you handle returns? and what mode of payment you have set up?
Young Dabber (2 months ago)
Use free returns, if the buyer needs a return they will buy a return shipping label with your money through eBay. Always use PayPal for eBay, it makes all the automatic payments and stuff easy. Also, get a PayPal debit card, it keeps track of all your sales and makes tax time a lot easier.
Kevin Dixon (2 months ago)
Thanks for the advice on dropping the price 6%. I didn't realize they would email the watchers. Good tip. Thanks.

You can go to your local dry cleaners and pick up hangers for free. Ask for the ones the customers bring back to recycle.

Your Building !! its cheaper to lease ! Get a new C.P. A. !
RALLI ROOTS (3 months ago)
yeah...that's defiantly not true. We own multiple properties, they are big time assets if managed the right way. PS. a CPA doesn't give financial advice, that would be a financial advisor, a CPA handles taxes etc. Cheers tho.

ve two large scale Ebay business and im actually tying to sell them right now. If you are thinking about selling on Ebay don't let these videos fool you! It's very hard work once you get to a level that you can actually make a living. Plus with all EBAYs new return policies, fees, bs customers that lie and having to call ebay every time you have an issue and waste half the day them with them on the phone because if you dont take care of an issue with this BS customer ebay could suspend you. If that happens then your business is shut down and no more income to pay bills and the people who work for you. Trust me guys there's way better ways to make money besides dealing with ebays BS.

remember the key in this game is capital

+Desiree Walters Live Your Journey State auctioneers license is hands down 100% the best way if you already have the inventory. You keep both buyer / seller premiums that you set before the auction you would hold. With the new wildwest of online sales this is the best way to keep inventory going out the door, and also the best way to keep overhead every every low. Now keep in mind i'm not telling you to open an auction house, because those days are number as well. With all the new online auction sites this is very easy to have weekly auctions once you get the license. It's around $200 flat fee to have when big auction. Here's the kicker everything sells!!!! No more totes and stuff sitting around the warehouse for months or years.
You got a point, but what are the other ways.
Crypto Guy (3 months ago)
Both ebay stores i shut down in June. I keep extremely busy with my manufacturing business, so i haven't listed them yet. I would want 250k for everything, and i would include 3 semi trailers in the deal but you would need around 10 more trailers to haul the rest out. Really not interested in having an episode of American Pickers at my warehouse just want it all gone at once. So if you think this is really something you are still interested in i will get everything together next week for you. Also, i'm not trying to slam you guy's at all. I just understand the amount of work it really takes to run a ebay business let alone 2 or 3 and just me i had a blast the first 10 years.
Crypto Guy (3 months ago)
Looking back on it all now i wish i would have done a youtube channel on it all, because i would have put all the BS in the videos. I know you guys know what i'm talking about lol everyone always wants to put the good in videos theses days. Ebay will be replaced within the next 5 years mark my words, then what? People are over Ebay and thats just facts

Could you do a video on how you get those clothes so neatly placed in the bag? Mine tend to look like a squashed grape by the time I place them in the bag. Thank you for the video, hit the like button everyone!

Davis Cole (5 months ago)
I am new and have about 15 items for sale. Some of my shirts are only $2-$3 and nothing has moved in the last 2-3 weeks. Ugh. So disappointing.
Revolvethis (2 months ago)
Why are you selling things for only 2 to 3 dollars? You will have a hard time selling at that price, it’s too low.. Plus how do you expect to make a Profit after fees? if your stuff isn’t moving it’s because it’s priced wrong or no one wants it. When I get a lot of watchers on items I raise the price a few dollars and they almost always sell.
Dan Fennewald (2 months ago)
Davis Cole have you had any luck since then? I’m just getting into selling clothes and I don’t have good lighting or camera to take good pics.

The extra poly bag and thank you card is a nice touch and all, but unnecessary and an expense you dont need. Sure you might get some repeat customers but its not that often to justify that expense.

RALLI ROOTS i feel some strange passive aggressiveness from both sides
RALLI ROOTS (5 months ago)
let me break the math down for you. We sell 100 items this week with no thank you cards and we get 30 feedback left...the next week we sell 100 items and put thank you cards in and we get 60 feedback. +30% increase in feedback left. Pretty simple to track, like I said.
EAGLE___EMPIRE (5 months ago)
No,No.... Im asking specifically the 30% increase statistic dude to the thank you cards. How would you even be able to gauge that factor? Im legitimately curious. I would like to do that case study as well
ultimatecouponlady (5 months ago)
Is this a "rerun"? I could have sworn I've seen this video a few months ago. Anyway, so when you drop the price, watchers get a notification? What about when you use Markdown Manager? Do they still get a notification? Thanks for all the tips and fun ridealong videos! :-)
ultimatecouponlady (5 months ago)
+RALLI ROOTS Thank you so much for the quick reply. I will try dropping the price on my items that have watchers and see if that helps sales. I have sooooo much to get listed! I am finding though, that when I list, things start to sell. I get my inventory so cheap that it's easy to buy 100's of items but I can't keep up with listing them since I work full time (and have a social life! Lol!) I get my items sometimes 3/$1 and but usually don't pay over $1 for name brand items! Is there a fb reseller listing accountability group that you know of? Thanks in advance!
RALLI ROOTS (5 months ago)
We've done it a couple times, 100 new subscribers a day so some vids might get repeated but each one is different. Yes, if you drop the price by more than 5% the watchers get a notification. We don't use markdown manager so I'm not sure.

DOTA2MAS7ER (6 months ago)
Nobody is crushing it on ebay. The prices on ebay are lower than Amazon. eBay and Paypal fees add up to at least 14% you're going to lose. It takes a lot of time to put up the listings, ship the crap, document everything, you need a reseller liscence to remit taxes. You're better off working Part Time at McDonalds.

Any suggestions where I can get a "small" backdrop for pics? (To hang in back of door)
djrocker1007 (6 months ago)
Great video as always! I watch your vids daily and it has helped me with my sales. One thing I am never clear on is how people offer free shipping on items? Do you just mark up the asking price a little to compensate?
Ryan Schroeder (5 months ago)
That's essentially what people do, and they might eat a couple bucks on top of that for the free shipping but they work it into their margins when they buy stuff
Jamie Taylor (6 months ago)
I love how you say to check dumpsters for boxes and you go buy metal hangers. Sorry this is coming from someone who’s hubby wears uniforms for work and we have so many hangers we actually take them in for scrap money! Lots of places that have their employees wear uniforms will give you hangers because the uniform companies won’t take them back. :) Thanks for all the good tips!

Thank you for the video!.. Question - should you lower the price 5/6% for them to get the notification or will putting it on sale do the same thing and send them a notification that the price was reduced?

Ryan and Ally, for real, help me hook Callie up with my brother. A little bit about him: He lives in Hollywood, Fl. He's a hard working, very honest, family man, and good looking too. Not to put too much personal stuff about him here but he has a full time job with a cruise line and does Real Estate and Ebay part-time, and, he's a brain anneurysm survivor too, which if I remember correctly, Callie's mom is too. Anyway, write back to see how we can do this, LOL, maybe a blind date haha

Do you guys feel like you're losing money not adding shipping fees for priority items when you's get best offers instead of free shipping for everything besides first class pkgs?
Emerson Gonzalez (6 months ago)
Hello Ralli Roots, very productive day for ya’ll, like always! 😊 Quick question, I have a buyer that still hasn’t paid for the best offer I accepted from them, it’s been 6 days already, 2 days ago I sent them a reminder of payment but still no response. At this point since I still see no payment am I suppose to to just click “relist item” or click “cancel order”? Or should I wait a couple more days to see if they pay? This is the first time happening since I’m still new at selling on ebay. Thanks in advance, cheers on your new land for the warehouse btw! 😁😊
LizVee87 (6 months ago)
Open a case and they get 4 more days to pay. After that you can close the case and relist your item :)
Jennifer Kappius (6 months ago)
I hope that was a recycling bin for all of those boxes and you weren’t actually throwing away cardboard.
RALLI ROOTS (6 months ago)
we threw away 2 boxes. the rest weren't ours. we recycle everything we can.

How much do you pay callie? Because like at this point if she wanted she knows everything she could basically do this on her own. Figure you guys pay her a good bit to keep her around since she’s so productive though

I tried going to my local thrift stores to pick up some items to resale and their prices are ridiculous close to the resale prices on eBay, and I see you purchasing items for cheap . Do you have any tips on how to get good deals?
Trent A Smith (6 months ago)
Go to all the thrift stores in your area and see if any have a day where everything is half off or when they do sales. I have a schedule every week where I target specific stores because I know im getting a discount.
Merlinda (6 months ago)
You need a Vintage old truck just for driving to the post office that would be coo :)

Do you color correct your photos of clothing items? I sometimes have trouble getting the correct color cast and worry about putting those images on my listing if they're not completely accurate. Thanks!
TheDBoBo (6 months ago)
Hey roots gang. Question? How hard is it to do 2 ebay accounts? Thinking about doing it but worried I won't get all the alerts or what have you. I have a great idea but stalling because of worrying about custer service. Any tips?
RALLI ROOTS (6 months ago)
TheDBoBo it’s not too hard. You just have to make sure you log out and login to the other accounts on your phone. On our computers we keep them open in separate browsers, and you can have the notifications go to separate email addresses. Not too bad

also have an awesome slayer graphic T shirt and it wont even sell for $16 so yeah there is that
Kenny Thomas (6 months ago)
thanks for replying the problem i have with ebay and ebay as a whole is exposure i feel that if more people actually saw my items they would sell since i feel im listing my stuff too low as it is. I have even tried 12% promoted listing on every item i have and that didnt help. Too many items on ebay not enough can get on page 1, 2, or 3 ebay is frustrating to say the least. I still enjoy all your videos keep up the good work =)
RALLI ROOTS (6 months ago)
Kenny Thomas (6 months ago)
i stopped using best off because say i have something listed for $20 i get offers for $8 its never ever a reasonable offer. i feel like i have to list stuff way higher then i really want to get the best offer to even come close to the right price then people dont want to even look at it because its too high to start with. i feel ebay has gone down hill for most sellers and selling less and less and less as time goes on while poshmark is booming for me im about to kick ebay to the curb
RALLI ROOTS (6 months ago)

My brother also works for me from time to time in my reselling business. How do you pay Ben? Mine does various tasks not just taking photos. Thanks Ryan.
Birdknowsbest (6 months ago)
Thanks, I figured as much with the 1099. I am sure you know this, but any part time employee you use randomly, if you pay them less than $600 a year, its a first page deduction and you dont have to pay employment tax on that. I have found this works great for sometime doing super part time work for you.
RALLI ROOTS (6 months ago)
He's paid as a 1099 employee, price per item pictured.
Tom Aapple (6 months ago)
Hey I just started selling my own personal stuff on eBay, I’m going to start thrifting and all but I’m kinda scared to do so because I’m not really sure how I would pay for taxes, and if they ask for a “supplier” I can’t really say goodwill or the clothing company supplies me, I also read once you sold 200 things and made 20000 eBay sends you a notice any place where I can get all my questions answered? I’m not sure If I can get a business license for selling thrifted clothing
Revolvethis (2 months ago)
I’ve been selling on eBay full-time for six years now, I do have one dependent but have not had to pay into the government and I’ve never fudged the numbers they are my actual sales minus expenses. Don’t let taxes scare you or hold you back from doing what you wanna do.
Tom Aapple (6 months ago)
Awesome thank you so much
RALLI ROOTS (6 months ago)
Tom Aapple you’d want to talk to a CPA in your state about taxes, but don’t let that stop you from making money. EBay’s not going to just shut you down for selling used clothing without a “supplier” invoice. So many sellers would have their accounts closed over night. Ebay wants you to sell stuff.

Sometimes the watchers are actually just other sellers that want to see what you got for an item once you sell it.

Can you explain the process behind free shipping? Why do you offer free shipping with all of your products. I’m just getting started and I’d like to know. Thanks ! Keep up the videos i love y’all :)
Luisa Leanos (6 months ago)
Yes but what if they offer you best offer that takes that shipping fee, you still have to price it still a bit higher to not lose both?
Daniel Martin (6 months ago)
Thank you!
Daniel Martin (6 months ago)
Sounds good thank you!
tjv323 (6 months ago)
They include the cost of shipping in the cost of the item. So a 30 dollar item that ships for around 3 dollars, they'll list for 33-35 and offer free shipping....
RALLI ROOTS (6 months ago)
DanielsWorld we work it into our price. So if the comp is $25 + $5 shipping we’ll sell the item for $29.99 or something like that. We don’t lose on shipping
Shawn Humphreys (6 months ago)
How do you get so many watchers? I can only get 5 or 7 at most for mine

Shawn Humphreys the type of items we’re selling

Pana Flipz to separate inventory and because we don’t want certain product to be public. We only share one store.

If the cost of the building is holding you back a bit, how about at least a pad that you can build on later but can, at this time can hold RV’S or boats, 5th wheels for storage? Good storage or advertising place for sheds or tiny houses?
