Product Description:
from Michael:
"...chalk full of really really useful stuff. I felt like, in 1 hour I got all of the tips and tricks the author had learned through his years of experience. This book was filled with things that would have otherwise taken me a lot of trial and error to figure out on my own."

Do you want to save time and money on shipping?

Shipping is one of the most frustrating areas for online sellers (even if you have been doing this for a while). The good news is: it does not have to be.

That is what this book is all about.

It is a short, easy to understand guide, which will help you get over your shipping phobias and help you to start packaging and shipping your items like a pro.

By the time you are done reading this book, you will have a better understanding of -
  1. How to store items after you post them for sale, so they are both easy to find and safe from possible damage. 
  2. What your shipping options are. We will cover shipping with the United States Postal Service (USPS), Federal Express (Fed Ex), common carriers, and home pickup. 
  3. What services you need to use to comply with your selling venue's rules. Examples of this are delivery confirmation, signature delivery, and miscellaneous tracking options. 
  4. How to use eBay and PayPal shipping solutions to print your labels. We will discuss other shipping solutions such as Stamps.com and Endicia, and why you may want to use them. 
  5. Finally, we will tackle international shipping. You will learn what's required from you to sell internationally, how to fill out customs forms, how to set customer delivery expectations, and how to simplify international shipping. 
You should be able to read this short guide in under and hour, and immediately be able to use the information you learn to ship smarter, quicker, and less expensively.

Your'e about to discover the fastest way to make money online today without massive amounts of capital, a business degree, or having to build a website!

eBay is one of the best solutions for bringing in income.I first started on eBay at 17 years old after falling for many online scams that did not work. I could not trust anyone anymore. I got tired of giving my money away to strangers. I then stumbled on eBay. I began to selling unwanted items around my house. I began sourcing from local thrifts shops and began sourcing products wholesale from suppliers in the United States.

I have the dream to become a millionaire. I am not there yet, but I do earn a decent income by selling items on eBay. I have gained valuable insight and learned strategies to become successful on eBay. Making money on eBay is not difficult at all, and I believe that people have been duped by information that they have found online. You may be thinking," I can't make any money on eBay because there is too much competition, or I do not have enough money to get started." I understand where you are coming from, but let me just say it is not your fault! These are myths simply are not true.

There are many everyday regular people that are making money with eBay, so why would it not work for you? This book is targeted for beginners, and I will show you step by step how you can get started making money on eBay!

Here is a preview of what you will learn

Chapter 1 covers the benefits and selling on eBay, and how to have the correct mindset to become successful.

Chapter 2 explains how to setup your accounts properly, and get everything connected so you can start off on the right path.

Chapter 3 is all about product sourcing. Sourcing Methods include selling items around your house, thrifting, wholesale, and drop shipping. As a special bonus. I have included an excel spreadsheet that contains over 2,000+ wholesale & drop ship suppliers in every niche you can think of.

Chapter 4 is about creating a listing that will sell. I will discuss how to properly create a high-quality title, product description, and pictures.

Chapter 5 covers how to properly print out a shipping label directly from eBay so you will not have to stand in line at the post office. I will show where to get free USPS shipping supplies sent directly to your house.

Chapter 6 & 7 discusses how to significantly increase your sales and feedback. These sections will also give you tips on how to expand your business beyond eBay and outsource tedious takes.

Why am I sharing this information with you?

- I want to see you succeed. There are many niches out there on eBay, and I am not worried about any competition. I am 25 now, and I remember back when I first started. I wish had someone to help me along the way to help me avoid some of the mistakes.

Product Description:

A broad overview of market mechanisms, with an emphasis on the interplay between theory and real-life applications; examples range from eBay auctions to school choice.

This book offers an introduction to market design, providing students with a broad overview of issues related to the design and analysis of market mechanisms. It defines a market as a demand and a supply, without specifying a price system or mechanism. This allows the text to analyze a broad set of situations―including such unconventional markets as college admissions and organ donation―and forces readers to pay attention to details that might otherwise be overlooked. Students often complain that microeconomics is too abstract and disconnected from reality; the study of market design shows how theory can help solve existing, real-life problems. The book focuses on the interplay between theory and applications. To keep the text as accessible as possible, special effort has been made to minimize formal description of the models while emphasizing the intuitive, with detailed explanations and resolution of examples. Appendixes offer general reviews of elements of game theory and mechanism design that are related to the themes explored in the book, presenting the basic concepts with as many explanations and illustrations as possible.

The book covers topics including the basics of simple auctions; eBay auctions; Vickrey–Clarke–Groves auctions; keyword auctions, with examples from Google and Facebook; spectrum auctions; financial markets, with discussions of treasury auctions and IPOs; trading on the stock market; the basic matching model; medical match; assignment problems; probabilistic assignments; school choice; course allocation, with examples from Harvard and Wharton; and kidney exchange.
