Ask A Question


15+ years experience as an eBay seller, 12 years as a professional eBay instructor for several local colleges, I can answer questions on most any eBay topic, ranging from a beginner to advance level. I also have expertise in digital marketing which is essential to e-commerce. As a longstanding Top-Rated eBay seller, I can answer questions pertaining to achieving and maintaining TRS status and the benefits, best practices, market research, creating professional listings and titles, rules and regulations, fees and optimizing listings for maximum traffic. I don't answer tax related questions, as I'll leave that up to the accountants and tax experts. I can answer questions or refer eBay sellers to various eBay tools and explain the benefits of using 3rd party applications. I also teach Amazon classes for a local college and available to answer questions about selling on Amazon as a regular merchant or using the FBA program.
