With the recent news coming from the US that authorities have started to crack down on websites selling counterfeit goods, it reminded me that, in the past, eBay itself has known to be susceptible for unknowingly allowing bogus sellers to trade in fake branded goods on the site.
Personally I have never had a problem with this as everything I have bought seems to have been legit; however, I have known people who have bought replica goods like handbags and antique ornaments which, upon close scrutiny, were found not to have been genuine.
These days, it is more difficult to spot fake goods on eBay as sellers use any means possible to get rid of their stock. This is why it is always important to check out the feedback of the person selling the items before placing a bid.

If you are wondering if being a top rated seller is worth the effort and energy you have to put in to get there, you only have to look at the amount of stuff that these people sell.
Most people would prefer to do business with a top rated seller with tons of feedback than someone with a low feedback score and without a track record of delivering on their promises.
In order to get to this level you need to ensure that the service you provide is of the highest level. This means posting the items out on time and dealing with any customer questions and issues quickly and effectively.
The effort you put in now will ultimately be rewarded with higher sales as people become more comfortable dealing with you as opposed to your competitors.

If you are looking to make a bit of extra cash to fund your Christmas presents spree then you’d better get cracking. You really need to work out what you are selling and get your inventory ready asap. As listings can take from a day to 10 days and with just a few days left in November you need to think about your eBay listings.
People are after all sorts of things at this time of year so you never know what will sell, and what won’t.Just ensure that you put as much (accurate) of a description as possible, along with one or two genuine photos and you could be raking in the money. Oh, and although Paypal fees have been on the rise for some time, it is still the safest method of payment out there.

Many people consider buying any item on eBay to be a risk, be it a DVD or a pair of shoes, so to look at the motors section would fill them with dread. However, if you think about it in the same way as anything else, it may be a bigger risk to take but you can still get a good deal.
In fact, the two cars I have now bought on eBay have been great so the myth that all eBay car sellers are cowboys is totally misplaced. Like with any purchase you should always check the seller’s feedback rating, plus all other details about the item to see if it is as much of a bargain as it seems at first sight.
Finally, you should ideally go and see the car in person to go for a test drive and reassure yourself that the motor is the same as it is described in the listing. By doing this you should have no problem and can grab yourself a real bargain.

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE
THE ANSWER IS YES TO THE QUESTION BELOW, YOU CAN HAVE TO XBOX PROFILES ON THE SAME XBOX AND THEN PUT IT BACK ON YOUR OWN XBOX AFTERWARDS.
YOU SIMPLY GO TO THE DASHBOARD OF THE MAIN GAMERS XBOX, THEN SETTINGS AND RECOVER GAMERTAG, ENTER YOUR EMAIL AND PASSWORD YOUR FRIEND OR OTHER GAMER ORIGINALLY SIGNED UP TO ON THERE XBOX LIVE GOLD ACCOUNT AND THIS SHOULD THEN DISPLAY TWO GAMER PROFILES WHICH ONCE IN A GAME LIKE BLACK OPS YOU CAN SET UP A GAME SIGN IN WITH BOTH PROFILES AND GAIN POINTS ON BOTH ACCOUNTS AT THE SAME TIME.
YOU CAN THEN ONCE AT HOME RECOVER YOUR GAMERTAG BACK ON TO YOUR XBOX WITH THE SAME PROCEDURE AND STILL HAVE ALL POINTS YOU GAINED ON SOMEONE ELSE’S XBOX.
Me and friend both play COD black ops online. We both own xbox live profiles on our own xboxâ€™s at home but once a week I go round to his and play online on his xbox.
At the moment I sign in on his xbox account as a guest â€“ I was wondering, if there was a way to transfer my xbox live account to his xbox and play online with both profiles live at the same time on the same xbox instead of a â€˜guestâ€™ and transfer it back to my xbox at home the following day without any repercussions?
The aim is that I can still achieve award, exp and cod points on my blacktops account whilst I play at his house.

So Katie Green is a UK model from Chichester who recently made it famous in 2010 by doing certain shoots for magazines but it seems her friends are starting to cash in on her fame by selling either her possessions or signed property and memorabilia on eBay.
I noticed one of her auctions of a signed calendar went for over one hundreds pounds yesterday. One hundred pounds for a calendar, that must be a big fan, either way you make your own mind up what would you pay for some pics of this girl? I dont think I would shell out Â£100!!

While it is certainly true that it is much harder these days to make a decent amount of cash on eBay than a few years ago, with a bit of hard work you can still see some remarkable results.
The product you are selling will definitely have a bearing on how much you make – although this sounds obvious as you could be selling cars as opposed to collectable toy figures, the mark-up value (or profit) you make from the items can depend on many factors.
If you want to see what is selling well on eBay in a particular category you can filter the results by bids and how much people are willing to pay, ignoring the Buy-it-Now listings. This should hopefully give you an idea of what you might wish to sell yourself and you can see the average price these items are going for to determine if you will make any money out of the venture or not.
