UGG BOOTS SIZE GUIDE

ResellingRevealed: We get the question on our listings all the time: “I typically wear a size X, will these UGGs fit me?  We also get the alternate questions:  Do UGG boots fits large or small?  Do UGG boots fit wide?  etc. Well luckily for us, UGGS fit quite consistently and once you have a fitting pair it is easy to find others that are almost guaranteed to fit.  Finding that fit pair however can be a challenge.  While we advise going to a store and trying a few pair on (and then buying them online) many people are unwilling or unable to go to that extra effort.  If that is the case, and you want to buy genuine UGGs online, the following guide will be your friend!  Just be sure that the UGGs that you are buying are authentic.  Knock-offs are plentiful on eBay and no one can be quite sure how they will fit! …

The Best Day & Time To End eBay Listings

ResellingRevealed: The main deciding factor for whether or not your item sell on eBay, is how many people see it.  Every single thing that people suggest to increase sales (better titles, higher quality pictures, etc.) revolve around getting more pairs of eyeballs to see your listing and encourage the owners of those eyeballs to click it.  So it stands to reason that, when you start an item on auction, you want to start it when the maximum number of people will be watching it (and hopefully bidding on it) when it ends.  The traffic on any website (especially eBay roller coasters based on the time of day, the day of the week, etc.  So if you can figure out what the best time is to start you auction, you should always see your items sell for a higher price!  While it does vary based on the time of the month, as well as the category you …

The best guide on estimating shipping on ebay

ResellingRevealed: Shipping estimates are the bane of many new eBay sellers.  Unfortunately, making shipping mistakes do not go away altogether as you get more experience.  Even after we have been selling online for several years, making shipping estimate mistakes have cost us more than we care to admit.  Recently, we sold a pair of bike handlebars.  We bought them for $1.99 and sold them for $29.99 + $8.95 shipping.  It sounded like a great flip until we realized that they were oversize and were going to cost us $41 to ship to Hawaii.  Great.  We sourced a product for someone and paid them $4.05 to take them off our hands.  This guide will hopefully greatly reduce the odds of something like that happening to you!

How to tell if your Lacoste is Fake

Although you’d never know it by searching through eBay, selling fakes of any sort it not allowed on the site.  Whether or not or are open about it’s authenticity, selling fakes can lead to quick and permanent consequences.  We unwittingly misspelled a brand name in a title when we were new sellers, someone reported it as a fake (it wasn’t), and we received a 3 day suspension during which we could still sell but not list any product.  If you make the same mistake a couple of time, your entire selling account could be in grave danger.   That being said, a good number of the fakes being sold on eBay are listed by good-hearted but clueless resellers who truly think they have the genuine article.  In order to avoid negative feedback and a possible ban, it is important to familiarize yourself with some of the most popular faked brands and, believe it or not, Lacoste is one …

What the difference between vintage and antique?

ResellingRevealed: “Antique” and “Vintage” have got to be some of the most misused words when it comes to selling on eBay.  To the average person, this may not seem like such a big deal, but to many collectors and shoppers, it means needing to wade through mounds of inaccurate listings to find what you want.  It also makes an buyer wonder, if you don’t even know whether what your setting is vintage, an antique, or neither, what else don’t you know?  The more knowledgeable you are about the products you can sell, the more likely you are to find the perfect buyer.  If the extent of your knowledge is “it’s old…” expect very little traffic and even less interest. WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE? “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” or so we are told. As this adage implies, word choice when describing an item can sometimes be subjective, and the item’s value is often …
