Frequently Asked Questions
Can I complete lessons from my phone?
Yes, all lessons can be completed from a computer, tablet, or phone.
What if I don't know anything about reselling?
If you're interested in reselling, but haven't quite jumped on the bandwagon yet, this course is perfect for you! Taking this course will help you reach your financial goals quick as I've figured out what works and what doesn't so that you can achieve success quickly.
What if I've been selling on other platforms like Poshmark?
If you've done some reselling on other platforms, but haven't yet dived into eBay, this course can take your biz to the next level. If hours spent sharing and following aren't your thing, eBay is where it's at! Just list, sit back, and wait for money to start coming in. One of the largest platforms out there, eBay is sure to be a game changer!
Will I need to open an eBay store?
While not a requirement for selling (you get 50 free listings a month without a store subscription!), this course is geared around having an eBay store. There are lots of perks of having an eBay store including Seller Hub (where your seller account and all listings are managed from), the ability to create listing templates and business policies (saving you time!), as well as the ability to set up a vacation hold (Making money while on vacation? Yes, please!) Subscriptions start at just $4.95/mo with 1-yr plan, or $7.95/mo for month to month.
If you're not quite ready for an eBay store, most of the principles in this course will still apply for you. Then when you're ready for a store, you'll be all set to go with what you learn.
Will I need to purchase anything else once I get the course?
Thankfully, start-up costs for reselling are very low. I started with just my smartphone, printer, a couple of shipping supply items from the Dollar Store, and a scale (around $20 from Amazon). If you don't have a printer, there are some options for you...such as having your labels printed at the post office or library, but you'll definitely want to eventually have either a printer or label printer available for ease.
You may also want to invest in a lighting kit and photo drop background (less than $75 total) and possibly a mannequin (approximately $50). I invested in these around a year into my business, but if you can get these sooner, they really improve pictures and your sales. Definitely a great investment!
It's also nice to have some basic household items on hand such as lint rollers (a must if you have pets!) and stain removers (I like OxyClean, Fels Naptha soap bars, and hydrogen peroxide).
You will also (obviously) need to make an initial investment in clothes to sell. The amount is up to you and how quickly you want to grow your income. You can start with how little or how much you want. My initial investment was $7 for a few items. I sold a couple, then turned around and bought more. That same $7 investment is what I'm still flipping today! It took a while to get where I'm at, and if you want to grow quickly you will most likely need to invest a bit more. The other option is to sell your own items first so you can start investing in other items.
How much room do I need?
You'll need room on either a wall or floor to take pictures. I recommend a 5'x7' background as well as room for a lighting kit.
You'll need a small space for shipping supplies. I use a small foot-wide cupboard, to give you an idea of size.
For inventory storage, that will depend on how much you plan to have. (You'll take this into account for developing your business model as well). Here are a couple of scenarios to give you an idea of how much storage room you'll need:
I initially started out with a few cleared out dresser drawers to hold around 100-150 items. Then I expanded to my proprietary storage system which allows me to store a large amount of inventory in a small amount of space. An approximately 16"x24" floor space with 6 feet of vertical clearance can hold around 100+ items. For my current sales volume, I have around 500-700 items on hand at any one time.
I live in the middle of no where. Will this course work for me?
While you can resell from pretty much any location, if you live hours away from stores, you will probably have trouble sourcing enough inventory. That being said, there are resellers who travel two or more hours to source, spend the day sourcing inventory for the month, then drive home to get it all listed.
I don't live in a high income area and never see high-end brands in thrift stores. Can I still make money?
Yes! If this is you, let me tell you...I'm in the same boat! Living in middle class suburbia, I rarely come across really great brands. But I haven't let this hold me back! In this course, I share all my biggest secrets with you for sourcing.
Is there a time limit to complete this course? How long do I have access?
How does lifetime access sound? There is no time limit and you can complete this course at your own pace. In addition, this course will be updated as things evolve and change.
Do you offer any refunds or guarantees?
Absolutely. If you go through the course, implement my strategies, and don't see any results, then you can email me within 30 days for a full refund. All I ask is that you provide evidence that you've put these methods into place and can show that they have not worked for you. All refunds are subject to the terms of the full refund policy linked on the footer of this page.
What format is the content delivered in?
Video! You will have video instruction and step-by-step walkthroughs of every major topic. This is by far the best way to learn the material - by demonstrating exactly what I have done to have so much success.
I don't live in the United States. Will this course work for me?
This course is based on using eBay.com. eBay's website in your country may be a little different. Also, the shipping methods discussed in this course are specifically for US sellers.
Is my credit card secure?
Credit card security is extremely important to me. That's why I've partnered with Stripe to handle the billing and provide a secure socket layer, 128-bit encryption. Frankly, your credit card data is safer making an online purchase through this secure site than it is using it to pay for gas or buy food at a restaurant. So feel comfortable knowing your transaction is 100% completely protected from fraud.
