My Ebay for Seniors (My...)by Michael Miller
Synopses & Reviews
While eBay gained initial fame as an online auction site for rare and collectible items, it has long since evolved into a thriving online marketplace for all types of goods – and all types of users. Today, eBay is the world’s largest online marketplace, with more than $67 billion worth of merchandise sold in 2012, which translates into $2100 in sales every second.
My eBay for Seniors contains all the information today’s 55-and-older audience needs to both buy and sell on the eBay site. The book covers basic eBay operations with seniors’ needs in mind, focusing on those functions and categories most-used by older consumers – and on avoiding eBay-related scams targeted at the senior demographic. From getting to know eBay and shopping safely to selling, packaging, and shipping to collecting payment and dealing with disputes, Miller clearly walks the reader from beginning to end on using eBay. Seventeen chapters describe the basics down to the nitty gritty of buying and selling on eBay, and doing so successfully and safely. This full-color book is organized so that readers can quickly find the answers to their questions without reading every page.
