Registered Trading Assistant
Nina Marie Sherrer
Don't give your
stuff away... it may be exactly what someone else is looking for! What's
that saying? "Your stuff (I know the word is "trash") may be someone
else's treasure". Make it count, if even a little. All those little bits
add up! You'll be surprised at what you could make!
What is a Trading
A Trading Assistant is
someone who sells YOUR stuff on eBay for you. All you have to do is
decide what you'd like to sell then contact a trading assistant who will
take care of the transactions on eBay. A trading assistant will charge
you a commission and usually a non-refundable fee for their work whether
your item sells or not. This can vary greatly. Be sure to check out any
trading assistant you are considering using by checking 1. Their
eBay user ID history, 2. Their eBay
Feedback and 3. some of their listings.
Trust is BIG on eBay. Remember that most bidders depend on accurately
described items and good photographs.
Let me sell your items on
eBay. Buying and selling on eBay since January 2000, I have an excellent
feedback record and take pride in FAST, FAIR, & ACCURATE transactions
whether buying or selling. My eBay user ID is skyhidogs. Go to my
Feedback Summary, scroll down and click
on any Item# with a S in the right hand column to see how I list items on
Highly organized, I pride
myself on my professionalism and will handle all aspects including
researching, photographing, writing up the description, listing on eBay,
questions from potential bidders, the sale, collecting the funds, packing,
shipping, feedback, and paying eBay their fees. When the auction is
finished, the item shipped, and everything clears, I will send you a check
and provide you with an itemized list of items sold, the sale price and
and Fees for My Services.
Write down any questions you may have. Put together several items that
you would like to sell and briefly describe them along with any unusual
information. Have an idea of what the item is worth to YOU. Contact me
and make an appointment. We'll get together and evaluate what you have and
the best procedure to take.
1. I use 7 day auctions.
2. A brief Trading Assistant
contract will be signed to list the item(s). All item(s) must be in my
possession at all times.
3. Once the item is listed,
you are obligated to sell that item to the highest bidder.
4. If an item does not sell
the first time, we can discuss whether to re-list it.
5. If an item does not sell
on a re-listing, it will be returned to you or donated to a non-profit
organization. You are responsible for all eBay fees, and one Up
Front Initial Fee Non-Refundable Listing Fee.
6. I start most auctions
under $10 depending on the item. If you want to start at a specific
price, we can negotiate that. All eBay fees that are known at the time
of accepting the item for listing must be prepaid at that time.
7. When I list your item, it
is for a Basic Listing which includes one photo. If you wish additional
photos and/or features offered by eBay, those will be determined and you
will be charged accordingly in advance of the listing. On certain items I
will suggest a reserve listing or you may request this feature.
8. I reserve the right not
to list items I believe won't sell on eBay or that may be too expensive
or too difficult to ship, or that I feel I cannot represent honestly and
9. I reserve the right to
accept only a certain number of items per week from an individual
10. I will not sell risqué,
adult-oriented items of any nature or anything I personally find

Here's an example to help
Let's say you have an item with an opening bid of
$2.50. For me to take your item and put it on eBay prepaid charges are
$1.30 ($1.00 Initial Fee & .30 eBay listing fee). Now at the end of the
auction, the final value or winning bid is $7.75. Your additional fees
for my commission are $.39 which is 5%. eBays final value fee for the
winning bid is $.39. So, you would be paid $6.97. Of course the actual
amount you made is $6.97 - $1.30 prepaid fees = $5.67.
Suppose that same item with an opening bid of
$2.50 had a winning bid of $11.95. You have already prepaid $1.30 ($1.00
Initial Fee & .30 eBay listing fee). Your additional fees due me are .50
Up Front Initial Fee, $1.20 Commission Fee (10%), eBays final value fee
for the winning bid .60. You would receive $9.65. Your actual amount
would be $9.65 - $1.30 prepaid fees = $8.35.
You've got to admit, it's more than you'd make
selling it at a garage sale, or if it were still collecting dust in a
closet or a basement.
