Don’t Sell An e-Book on e-Bay





RC Toys & Gadgets EU Stock Sale - Duty-free/24 hrs Dispatch


Unless There Is Something In It For You.

A lot of e-Bay sellers sell other peoples e-Books on e-Bay, while that is fine they are sometimes selling the wrong e-Books. Once the sale is made that’s it. No further money can be made from that sale.


What if there was a chance of making

money over and over again from

the sale of one e-Book that was

written by someone else?

How cool would that be? Well it can be done, what you need to be selling is brandable e-Books. This means some of the e-Book contents can be branded with your own details,


this is usually in the form of a link to your website (this can be your e-Bay store if you don’t have a website) or an affiliate link leading to a sales page for the authors products.

I am not joking

when I say this but I sometimes receive commissions and I can’t remember how or why the commission was received. What I do know is it was either from one of my own e-Books or an e-Book I have branded with my own details.


Just imagine if you had 2 e-Books on the same subject and both promoted the same product, would you rather sell the e-Book with your affiliate details embedded or the one without?


That’s a no brainer isn’t it?

So what I would suggest is you go and search Google for ‘brandable e-books’ and see how many e-Books you can add to your e-Bay business. You will find there are 100s that can be downloaded and branded free.

TIP! Make sure the e-Books you brand can only be branded once.

Most will have a short statement or a document included with the e-Book explaining what to do.Once the e-Book has been branded by you check to see if the e-Book can be branded further.


If it can still be branded stay away, all that will happen is your customer will brand the e-Book and sell it on with their details embedded instead of yours.


It also helps to check out the product you will be promoting,


if it’s a click-bank product make sure you will get at least 50% commission, also, visit the sales page and check the sales copy does a good job. You don’t want to be promoting a product that won’t sell.Then visit the order page and make sure your click-bank name appears at the bottom of the page,


if not there is a problem with the link and you won’t get the credit.

Also, don’t expect overnight results. It could take a few Months to see any real results but once the payments start to come in you won’t be able to stop them. Just make sure you sell your e-Book at least 50 times on e-Bay and you should be fine.


So there you go, so simple yet so effective, so get branding, get

selling and get earning.

A Beginner’s Guide To The Different

Types Of  E-bay Auction 






Over the years, e-Bay has introduced all sorts of different auction types, in an effort to give people more options when they buy and sell their things on e-Bay.

For every seller who doesn’t like the idea that their item might sell for a far lower price than they intend, there’s another who wants to shift hundreds of the same item quickly.

eBay tries to cater to all tastes. This email gives you an overview of the different kinds of auctions and their advantages for you.


Normal Auctions.

These are the bread-and-butter of e-Bay, the auctions everyone knows: buyers bid, others outbid them, they bid again, and the winner gets the item. Simple.

Reserve Auctions.

Reserve auctions are for sellers who don’t want their items to sell for less than a certain price – a concept you’ll know about if you’re familiar with real auctions. They work just like normal auctions on e-Bay,

except that the buyer will be told if their bid does not meet the reserve price you set, and they’ll need to bid again if they want the item. If no-one is willing to meet your price, then the auction is can celled, and you keep the item.


Fixed Price (‘Buy it Now’) Auctions. 

Buy it Now auctions can work in one of two ways.

You can add a Buy it Now button to a normal auction, meaning that buyers can choose either to bid normally or to simply pay the asking price and avoid the whole bidding process.

Some sellers, though, now cut out the auction process altogether and simply list all their items at fixed price. This lets you avoid all the complications of the auction format and simply list your items for how much you want them to sell for.


Recently, eBay added a twist to fixed price auctions: the ‘best offer’.

This means that buyers can contact you to negotiate a price, which could be a good way to get sell some extra stock at a small discount.

The only downside to reserve and fixed price auctions is that you pay a small extra fee to use these formats. In general, it is more worth using reserve auctions for higher-priced items and fixed price auctions for lower-priced ones .

but remember that you can combine the two formats.

Multiple Item (‘Dutch’) Auctions.


These are auctions where you can sell more than one of a certain item. Dutch auctions can be done by bidding. Buyers bid a price and say how many items they want,

and then everyone pays the lowest price that was bid by one of the winning bidders. If you have trouble getting your head around that, then don’t worry –


everyone else does too! These auctions are very rare.

What is more common is when a seller has a lot of one item, and lists it using a combination of two auction types: a multiple-item fixed price auction.

This just means that you can just say how many of the item you they have, and offer them at a fixed price per unit. Buyers can enter how many they want and then just click Buy it Now to get them.

Now that you know about the different types of auctions, you should make sure that the items you plan to sell don’t violate eBay’s listing policies.

The next email will let you know what’s allowed and

what is a big no-no.


How Drop shipping works

with e-Bay 


10% Off Servers, Storage & Networking with code WELCOME10


Drop-shipping is a term used in reference to a type of retail sales,

where the retailer does not keep goods for sale in stock. The retailer is in charge of passing the customer’s order with their shipment details to a wholesaler, drop-shipper or third party provider,

who dispatches the goods requested by the customer directly.

Retailers using this sales model make their profit on the difference between the wholesale and the retail prices handled. Because the goods are not in stock.


many retailers have purchased some of those items to be displayed at their land-based stores. Allowing their customers to inspect the items, which are similar to those that they can purchase by placing an order.


Many retailers can receive from wholesalers and drop-shippers different

The catalogs to increase the number of goods on sale without , actually investing in any of those items. Although some catalogs are not for free, but always cheaper than buying merchandise to display for customers.


Laura Geller


Dropshipping on the Internet is a

virtual matter involving digital

images of goods a retailer

is selling.

On the Internet, Retailers can upload the description of the goods for sale along with pictures and other information.


This is made through the retailers’ personal or commercial website. Or listing the products at an auction site, such as e-Bay, where the potential buyers are waiting to bid.


Because drop-shipping, is a method of selling and distributing goods that the retailer does not have in stock. The listings usually include pictures and information that are available to sales catalogs.

Manufacturers of goods and distributors are not one in the same.

Hence, drop-shippers are distributors that just receive the order from the retailer and send the items directly to the end user on the retailer’s behalf. Therefore, drop-shipping involves 3 persons in the selling process: the


drop-shipper. The retailer and the end user, usually targeted at auction sites.

E-Bay is a successful on-line auction and shopping website, founded in September 1995, where people from all around the world buy and sell goods and services.


E-bay is the leading on-line marketplace for selling physical and virtual goods. Services and second-hand products,


collectibles from a diverse community of both businesses and individuals.

It is estimated that the e-Bay community is comprised of around 46.1 million registered users in different countries, speaking different tongues.


E-Bay is the most popular shopping site on the web, thus the most frequently associated with drop-shipping activities because of the nature of the Internet.


On-line it is not necessary to have a stock of physical goods for sale, 

 many items sold are digital goods, easily processed without needing to be on stock. Retailers at e-Bay usually sell small quantities of their products to other users registered at e-Bay’s website. Whether physical or digital.


Sometimes those goods are also available through a land-based store or listed at personal web pages or e-commerce sites owned by retailers.


Drop-shipping is a common practice that occurs when retailers receive a single large order for a product. And rather than route the shipment of those goods through their store. The retailers arrange for the goods to be shipped directly from the wholesaler (the drop-shipper) to the purchaser.


E-Bay retailers sell millions of collectibles, equipment, furniture, computers, appliances, vehicles, and many other miscellaneous items, which are listed, sold and bought everyday.




Because there is no limit to the number of listed items at e-Bay, a retailer can list a single book and make available 50 units. These units are not in the seller’s stock,


But available to be delivered in any quantity to the final end user after arranging for the delivery with the drop-shipper to the final user.

Dropshippers are wholesalers, whether individuals or companies,

Selling large quantities of goods and merchandise to commercial, industrial, institutional, or other professional business users.  Or individuals acting as agents or brokers in buying or selling merchandise for others.


Thus, it is more likely that goods listed by a retailer can be purchased from them at any time, while in stock.

At e-Bay, drop-shipping works as long as retailer can purchase the goods on sale from the wholesalers. However, there are rare and valuable items that can hardly be found as unique items.


If an end user wants to buy one of those rare goods.

He/she must be aware if the retailers are listing a large number of them, because users will be purchasing all items with the risk of fraud. If they have, more than one of these rare items for sale, then how rare is the item.


Although, almost anything can be sold at eBay, the listed goods must not be illegal nor violate the internal prohibited and restricted policy.


Listing fraudulent items or those misleading the buyer is absolutely forbidden. From physical and digital goods to services and intangibles,
