The quickest and simplest method to get items from China is via a courier like DHL and FedEx however this is also the by far the most expensive strategy and will eat up most of your profits.

Over 30% increase in sales – eBay Tips

  • Share on Tumblr

eBay’s new search engine “Cassini” likes you to list all of your items at once so it can get some history of how many times it shows your listing  compared to how many purchases it gets. i.e if you have 50 of one item, eBay encourages you to list all 50 at once.
