Happy Holidays and Rest up for 2016!

Dollar Flipper Blog Update, eBay Tips

The holidays are a time for self reflection, food, and family – and maybe a few drinks 😉 Over the years, I’ve transitioned from wanting tons of gifts to enjoying giving them. Probably just a part of growing up.

I’m going to use the time off from my day job to work on getting my eBay piles back into order, and if you’re wondering, no, it isn’t too late to list that Christmas item!

I’ll be on a blog break until the new year, so until then, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Sell Similar – Worth Your Time?

Dollar Flipper eBay Tips, Process

I’m listening to Scavenger Life again after my #NoNoiseNovember Challenge. They discussed ending and re-listing items using the Sell Similar instead of re-list. I’m trying to figure out if it’s genius or a complete waste of time.

Cheap vs. Business Savvy

Dollar Flipper eBay Tips

I’m all for re-using. I’ve talked about how re-selling fits into the whole green idea. Finite resources on the planet, more and more cheap crap all over the place, everything’s replaceable and not made to last… It’s bleak. We need to do our best however we can. As someone with a side hustle / (very) small business, there definitely is …

Ask the Readers: Have you had a repeat buyer?

Dollar Flipper Ask the Reader, eBay Tips

I use GoDaddy Bookkeeping to track all of my expenses. It comes in handy during tax time! The thing is, it even provides some extra analytics that I didn’t even know about. I think this data is something that eBay should be tracking, but instead, I only found out after the fact through a 3rd party application.

Ask the Readers: Do You Require Immediate Payment?

Dollar Flipper Ask the Reader, eBay Tips

In July, I had a situation where I was stymied by the immediate payment option. I wanted to make sure that I explained why I love this option, and why you should too. Immediate payment is a setting on eBay listings. It only works on Buy It Now items (sorry auction lovers), and only if they pay full price. I …

Mistakes on eBay – Not Just for New Sellers

Dollar Flipper eBay Tips

We all make mistakes. I still make plenty of them. Really, I do. And these are only the eBay ones! If you ask my wife, she’ll let you know that I’m just perfect all the time. 😉 You’d think that since I’ve been doing this eBay thing for over 3 years now, I’d be mistake-free by now. Hah! So what …
