I just want to share the good news (even though you may not have an ounce of care)! Yesterday, I just got invited to become an eBay powerseller. Now you have to understand what that means. I had to work hard for this privilage. Eligibility requires a minimum of $1000 per month in sales, Feedback of 100 with 98% positive, Good financial standing, good eBay “citizenship,” etc. Some benefits include: exclusive access to powerseller forums, welcome kit, special offers from wholesalers, exclusive access to the bulk reseller marketplace, exclusive invitations to eBay events, eBay advertising discounts, and more. They even help me with Health Insurance solutions if I am self-employed or hire a bunch of employees. The benefit I like the most is the Powerseller icon. I get to park it next to my username. To me, that is like a badge of honor. It shows and experienced and honest seller. It makes me think of having an M.D., Ph.D, Pharm. D., or some other D right next to my name. Read the eBay Powerseller information page for more details.

2) How/where do you get the merchandise that you sell at a low enough cost that you can make a decent profit?”
I’m glad he asked me these questions because I’ve been meaning to write an article about this.
