A new section has been added to walk you through getting started becoming a seller on eBay. The following explanation of what the membership area is about is included:
The Thrifter's Field Guide is set up to help you learn what to buy to make money. There are items you might not even think to buy because they don't look like much of anything often or don't realize people are willing to buy used or flawed. It is categorized by type of item, because that is how the thrift stores organize things. So, if you'd like to learn more about selling dishware, for example, you can navigate to the dishware page to get an idea of the types of things that sell, with a visual reference of photos of items we have sold to help you recognize them, and a list of actual sales we have made. Some pages include additional tips about buying and selling categories of items and/or pre-formatted research links to help you get even more familiar with the category (e.g. on the Cameras page: Click here to view recent sales of film cameras sold for parts. If you cannot test cameras, you can still research what cameras might be worth buying to sell as-is). You can research one area at a time or look through the sales photos and amounts to see which categories we frequently sell in and items that sell for the most money. If you're getting ready to walk into a store, you can pull up the page for the area you are shopping in and take a quick look to refresh what brands to look at or what the high dollar items look like.
The biggest part of making money on eBay, in our opinion, is just buying the right stuff. We are sharing our years of experience with you to shorten the amount of time it will take for you to become a full-time seller too.
