    I am looking for a few good eBayers.

    THE JV: I am looking to grow my eBay business and I sell in some niches that basically require 10,000 feedback and power seller status to list in without limitations. I don't have that and neither do 99% of the eBayers out there. My solution to make more money and continue to grow my biz is to find a few good eBayers who would like to make money while doing practically nothing but dealing with my chatter over gtalk and sending me money in Paypal.

    ABOUT YOU: If you want in you MUST: have a sellers account with enough (good) feedback that your funds are not ever held by PayPal. If you have more than one account, even better! You MUST also be available when I need to discuss the JV. I work on most days from 9-5 EST and if I need someone who is dependable. If you are a full time Internet marketer and you are online "24-7", even better!

    ABOUT ME: I will make you money. I have made me plenty and I have made other BHW members money. That's all that really matters in the end.

    MY METHOD: My method is simple (to me): I use keyword research tools like Tarapeak to identify products that are selling well on eBay. Once I find a product (or niche) I research the 5W+H. (who, what, when, where, why, how) it sells. Once I have done that I write the ads and I have that down to a science; really. It's the kicker because no software will make you good at ad writing and "selling". I then find the product as cheap as possible, and mark it up 20% or more depending on the product.

    Because both my research is so targeted and my ad copy is so good, I am able to list the products above the "low cost". I simply do not have to compete on cost because: A) My keyword research is so good that my product is one of the few to show up in search results. B) My ad copy is so good that buyers find my product more credible than the others that are listed (even though they are the same product).

    In the end, no matter what, all of my items sell. I HAVE NEVER NOT SOLD and that is no bull sh*t. Now once an item sells I drop ship it. Most often I simply go to another ebay seller with good feedback, the same product and a lower price and have them drop-ship my item as a gift. Easy as pie and it works.

    If you were involved in the process, you would simply forward to me all sales info and send me all sales monies minus listing fees and your cut of the profit.

    That's it really. To me it is simple. If you are smart, you may say that you don't need the JV and you will do what I just outlined and go make money on your own. If you are not smart or you don't care to do all of the work (and it is "work" if you want to be successful) PM me if interested. There is plenty of cash to be made and I know what I am doing.

    Ask all relevant questions in the thread; don't PM me unless I say that you should or you have a question that cannot be shared in the forum.

    PS: The picture below is 4 days into selling IN ONE SMALL NICHE :D before I got a message that "you must wait 30 days to list more items in this section". The money is there for the taking people.

    I thought that ebay now has a holding period on payments for everyone.

    I know they do often hold on people with very little feedback and or bad feedback.
    They may also hold when the sale is a large dollar amount. It really depends on the age of your ebay and paypal account and your feedback rating.

    have you ever heard of the eBay Trading Assistants?

    "Trading Assistants are experienced eBay sellers in your area who will sell your items for you on eBay for a fee. By hiring a Trading Assistant, you can take advantage of their selling expertise, save time and effort, and still reap the rewards of selling on eBay.

    Trading Assistants will do all the work for you, from listing an item and answering customer service inquiries, to collecting payment and shipping the item to the winning buyer."

    from what you wrote, it seems you're looking for something like them

    Yes I have and I have given it some thought. I read about it in Greens post.

    The thing is that I don't stock any of my own product. I drop-ship product.


    Few questions:
    -Are they attached to separate Paypals?
    -Is the feedback for sellers (you being the seller)?

    I am working with someone at the moment to get set up and they asked:
    EXACTLY What do I do?

    My response:

    From start to finish:
    1. You start an Auctiva account (they have a free 30 day trial).
    2. You give me access and I list items that have discussed and agreed upon.
    3. Once the product(s) go live, it/they should sell within a day or two. (All of my auctions sell).
    4. Once it sells, you forward me the notice from eBay & Paypal.
    5. You send me the money from the sale minus the fees and your cut.

    The only other thing you may have to do is forward questions about the product(s) to me and answer them on eBay. You will also leave feedback.

    That's it. I handle everything else.





    SOMETHING ELSE FROM THE CHAT THAT IS RELEVANT:


    JV PARTNER: i've never used auctiva.. so you just list the items directly from auctiva and not the actual ebay homepage itself?
    Me: I list from auctiva. I will have access to auctiva and NO access to your ebay account beyond that.

    JV PARTNER: so i guess my only risk would be you not actually sending the items to the buyers
    not saying you won't, but that is my only risk it seems
    Me: I will be forwarding the shipping notice. If I sell and don't ship, you would obviously break off the JV. Not profitable at all.

    JV PARTNER: so how many listings will be running on my account at any given time?
    Me: That's up to you skipper. We will obviously start out with a few and build a trusting and monetarily beneficial JV. The sky is the limit.

    JV PARTNER: what is my cut?
    Me: Depending on the ticket, I shoot for 20% of a $100 profit. If it's $100+, 15% / $500+, 10%

    I am not looking for a power seller and I am not looking for anyone to "work for me" beyond a few minutes a day. Read the thread, short bus. :doh:

    How much of it is seller feedback?
    Is it 100% positive feedback?
    What was the biggest ticket item that you have sold on eBay and for how much?
    Have you ever had payments held by Paypal for any reason?

    Just wanted to chime in - I was running this JV with Abercrombie for the last two weeks and we made money. That Paypal screenshot is legit. I can't do it anymore for other reasons (offline stuff)..

    But I thought I should give my opinion that Abercrombie is a business man, he doesn't mess around, and he will make money with his system.
