If you make a mistake in a post, and the buyer finds out the item was not what they expected, then they can report it and request a refund. Ebay will rule in the customer’s favor, because the “item was not as described.” INAD.
Here are three situations when I had an INAD:
- I went with the book Ebay catalog, and it was wrong.
- I sent the wrong thing.
- I made a listing error.

I just got busted by VeRO, for using a trademark on an item that wasn’t produced by the trademark’s owner, Lego. I was in the wrong, and they were well within their rights to report it. What is Ebay VeRO?

Can Amazon be used to further your efforts to declutter and dehoard your home or office? Can it be profitable? Will you get rich off your bookcases?
Short answer: probably not. Keep reading to find out other ways to potentially turn your books into cash, or something valuable. Continue reading “Can You Make Money Decluttering by Selling Books on Amazon in 2017?”
I’ve avoided writing about this a while, because I’m not a pro, but here goes. This only reflects my experience.
The ephemera biz is all about storage and listing quickly. To make money, you need a huge inventory of at least 10,000 items, and a way to list a hundred or more items a day. You also need a website to offload the stuff that won’t sell on ebay. The business model is about hoarding and selling long-tail items. It’s the opposite of a quick flip.

My S100 has been flaky, so I’m selling it, used, for parts.
To replace it, I bought a used FujiFilm XF1. I’m using this almost exclusively for shooting photos for Ebay product listings, and will review it with that in mind. Continue reading “FujiFilm XF1 Review (for Ebay)”
I’m not a camera guru, nor are my photos that great, but opinions are like anuses: everyone has one, and wants to show it off.
Mainly, I’m familiar with Nikon and Canon cameras, lower end to midrange, mainly point-and-shoots, but have also used DSLRs.

I scored a great deal on this FujiFilm XF1. This is a midrange point and shoot camera with full manual modes, and competes with the Canon S series (S95 S100 S110 S120). It got here, and it’s working, so that’s great. They are selling for around $130 on Ebay right now, but if you’re patient, you can probably get it for less. I don’t think it’s a well-known or popular camera. Continue reading “Whee, new camera! FujiFilm XF1”
