Looking for tips on a sale I have currently going on eBay.  I have a car posted for sale as buy it now for 8800 with the make an offer option.  The highest offer I got was 7500, but I was aiming at 7900.  The car did not sell, so I reposted at 7950 with no make an offer option and I currently have 22 watchers with 416 views.  Are there any tips anyone can share for me like communicating with the watchers or posting differently.  I am looking to use eBay as my main inventory posting site if I can figure it out.  here is the listing if you would like to review and share advice or tips.


I would love your feed back

Hey congrats to Raun and his wife Liz on their new family addition:

Aaron Everett arrived last night at 8:41 via c-sec weighing in at 7 lbs 13 ounces 20 inches long. Hopeful Raun will share a picture or two when things settle down.

Sounds like a great idea, Cornelius!  There's nothing quite like meeting face to face to talk shop.

I have been a FBA seller for over a year. I feel like it takes me too much time to prep. I would like to co-organize a MeetUp group with some people from Mississippi. I would like for such a group to physically meet and share tips and network. We could meet quarterly, at a minimum, and meet in a different part of the state each time.

I sell used cars and would like to leverage eBay as the main platform going forward.  I am interested to know if anyone has ideas to track what cars do well on eBay based on past history.  I would love to hear any ideas

There are some services that have popped up to remove the background of your pictures to make them ready for Amazon.  Keep in mind that there are a couple of categories that are much more strict about the background than others -- namely clothing and shoes.


I've used ClippingMagic.com and it's not too bad.  If you have a bunch of photos to be cleaned up or a bunch of products to list, I'd probably go Dave's route and hire someone to do the work.

Hey Damon.  I ran into a similar issue.  At one time I actually thought I could get quality pictures from my phone.  But I quickly realized that was a farce.


Getting good images is very important.  I'm sure you've shopped on Amazon and you can spot good and bad images and you know how that can impact your buying decision.

So... I invested in a professional photographer.  I created a project on eLance and was specifically looking for someone with experience taking pictures for Amazon.  It probably ran me about $100 but it's a requirement to play the game in my mind.  Without good images I won't sell and in most cases it's a one time expense.

How did I execute it.  I logged the job and had several people offer bids.  I asked for samples and most were very good and any of them would have worked.  I ended up selecting a guy with a mid price offer who's profile and website I liked.  Product images can be boring, but he had some creative spins or angles (small stuff but still cool), that caught my eye. 

I sent him a sample (very small product), and got high quality images back within a couple days.

Not intended to be self serving, but here's my product web page with a couple images and my FB page with even more (you can easily spot the Pro pics).

Hope that helps.  I'm still pre-launch so by no means an expert but happy to share from my experience.

What do you guys do for pictures on Amazon? None of my pictures ever meet the standard of totally white background.
