If you are like most people over the years you have collected things like unwanted presents, the mobile phone you upgraded, all those different mp3 players you have had plus loads of other things you have bought or been given. You have cleared out the loft and all those cupboards, and all around the house or office are piles of unwanted and no longer required items. But they all look too good to take to the tip, and you do not feel like getting up in the morning to go to a car boot sale. Someone at your work tells you about eBay, you go and take a look. You like what you see, but you just do not have the time to list everything, take the pictures and deal with all those emails and posting items.
But wait help is at hand with those eBay Trading Assistants. These people will take all the hard work off your hands. They do all the hard work and once the items have been sold, the Trading Assistant sends you a cheque or PayPal payment. Once you have made the decision to sell your items using an eBay Trading Assistant you need to go to the TA page on your eBay country and enter in either your postcode or zip code and up will come a list of Trading Assistants in your area. You then make a decision on which one you are going to use. This can be based on distance, feedback or what they sell. When you have decided you then make contact with your chosen eBay TA. They will then arrange to collect the items from you.
This is where you stop worrying as the Trading Assistant will now take over. They will research the items, take pictures, write descriptions, deal with emails, send items out, leave feedback, and once the new buyers are happy, will send you your payment less their commission. Most eBay Trading Assistants charge a one off commission and take out selling fees from their commission, while others charge a small percentage commission and then charge the fees. The average commission charged is between 30 – 50%, now this may sound high, but there is a lot of work involved and the high commission is well worth paying.
And to be honest when you first started on this journey the items here going to the local tip or to a charity shop so then you would have got nothing. By using a TA, you pay a very fair commission and in return you get expert help and a nice payment coming your way. Over time your eBay TA will become your friend, they will be the person you go to when you need to sell your items too, no more going to the tip. And because the Trading Assistant is working on a commission only basis it is in their best interest to work hard for you, because the higher the price they get for the item the more you the seller will get and the higher their commission will be.
