Re: does anyone have a sucessful Ebay store?

I do have to say, that it is a lot of work, and you will make mistakes, and expect to lose some money at first, but you keep learning, and keep getting better, and if you are really dedicated you can make it work. As long as you know your weakness (such as mine with photography) and take steps to improve it, you will be okay. Feedback is so important, as is a top rated status. I also read a lot of blogs and things on selling on ebay, and always, always make sure any high end things (like purses) are authentic. I even went so far as to email George Gina and Lucy with pictures and details of a bag I got at a thrift store to verify identity. It was pretty funny, because they are in Germany and responded with very broken English, but I got the info I needed.

I buy the poly mailers on amazon. Longest length and cut them in half to fit smaller items when possible and seal with tape. Cuts down on what I need to buy

I don't think ebay or paypal send a 1099 at $600. I want to say it's 200 transactions or $20,000.
