What to avoid:
baby stuff (parents dont want to buy used stuff for their small children)
generic stuff

avoid getting scammed

You are required to have a modern cell phone with a camera and internet

Post office is still open during these times.

I know many people in the community are hurting now and I would like to make a class on showing people how to sell stuff, we can all start with the things we dont use in our own house, you know the things in your closet that haven't been touched in years. If you aren't using it, why keep it? Give it new life and up-cycle it by flipping it on ebay and giving yourself a side income in these difficult times. We all have $1000 of "junk" to sell.

This class is an introduction to becoming a seller on Ebay, how to effectively use the mobile app, how to check completed listings and do basic market research when you sell stuff.

most rookies look at listings, when they should be looking at completed sales and volume

also will show how to check other sites to find cheap or free sourcing from:

Facebook Market Place (Craigslist is dead)
Next Door
Letgo
YardSale
