  1. I find this article very interesting. I used to sell and buy items on EBAY and I never asked myself about these questions. The guy who explains every details about how to make money on this website says some handy piece of advises that we can apply into other business.
    "You need to sell stuff that you are an expert on" , I think it is very logical, to sell whatever stuff you want to sell you need to know its features and how it is worth , its market value.
    He also says that is very important to give the clients an image of a trusty seller and I am really agree about this, be honest with the costumers is, in my opnion, the main "trick" you have to use to catch them.
