This Week's Show: How to get in to the China game.

Replacements.com

1. What is Replacements?

"The world's largest selection of old & new dinnerware," founded by a former junker named Bob Page
   
2. What do they want from sellers?
   
    Plates from those who eat lightly
    No Crazing
    No Stains
    No Chip
    No utensil marks

3. How do I sell to them?

    Find China at your favorite resale shop, garage sale or estate sale
    Call 1 (800) - Replace to see if they are buying
    If they are you will get an offer via email that is good for 30 days
    Buy your China
    Pack it up
    Ship it via UPS (insurance claims much easier than FedEX)

This Week's Show: Ebay Feedback and Seller's Fee Changes.

Read changes: http://pages.ebay.com/sell/update08/overview/index.html

Betsy gets to the heart of what is bothering her with Ebay
New changes with Feedback and Fees on Ebay will have a major impact on sellers
Double gloved for you love - dumpster diving protection
Every junker has 30 Sharpies and 29 are bone dry
It's like finding bubble wrap in a dumpster
Sellers can no longer leave Buyers negative feedback
This is a big mistake
It makes the marketplace artificial
Sellers are the lifeblood of Ebay, without them there are no buyers or Ebay
This is the change that create competitors
It is up to the sellers to create a great environment for buyers
You are doing brand management for Ebay
Ebay and junkin is like being on the Antiques Road Show
Sure, value comes from the previous sales
Now Ebay will hold your money if you a new seller
Only through PayPal
But this is the problem of Ebay and PayPal being the same company
Seller fees are lowered
This is a good thing right?
Yes and no
We play both sides of fence as sellers and affiliates
Affiliate payouts are based on sellers fees
It makes me worried that we won't make as much as an affiiliate
Seller feedback will only be listed as their seller ranking for 12 months

Next week: Next week listener questions and emails.
