Where to go for the Lastest Ebay News

If you want to go to one website with all the latest Ebay news and happenings go to they have a very good forum with active participants. I participate in the Ebay discussions and they also have excellent tips and various seller strategies.

Ebay has a vast amount of help info on but it can be such a maze to navigate. I am an Ebay Powerseller and I often go to Auctionbytes first to get the latest news fast in an easy to navigate format.

How To Turn Junk into Ebay $$$$$

My background is in the computer resale business. I started selling computers in a retail mall store. I worked my way up to corporate sales and finally owning my own computer resale business.

What I found through eBay is that you should never throw away anything before at least putting it up for sale on eBay one time. Even if you feel a product is worthless or even defective.

I stumbled onto this while selling computer parts on eBay. I listed some items that were defective and I labeled them as such clearly in my eBay listing.

I started the auction at 1 penny with no reserve. I was amazed to find that many of the defective laptop computer parts sold for not much less than fully working parts.

I was puzzled about this. I emailed the eBay buyers and wanted to make sure they were not confused and that the laptop parts were defective.

The buyers stated that they were able to salvage good parts from my defective components to make other parts operational.

Ahhhhhh! I have used this technique to buy defective product from many sources for literally pennies and make a great profit on eBay.

Ebay buyers are very savvy and will look for components do not throw away your junk it can be Gold!
