Amazon TopSeller Secrets
The benefits of selling on Amazon are legion—sellers have found that they can charge more for their merchandise, avoid upfront fees, and deal with less-demanding customers. The opportunities for selling are endless—Amazon now sells products in more than 40 categories and is the web’s number one retailer with more than 81 million customers.

Amazon Top Seller Secrets shows readers why Amazon is the marketplace that will bring them more cash and more customers.

Includes full story-rich profiles of some of Amazon's top sellers.

eBay PowerSeller Secrets, 2nd edition
Another home run by the Schepps!
Brad and Debra Schepp contribute articles to AuctionBytes - there's a
reason I ask them to write for me. The two have immersed themselves in
the eBay selling world and know their stuff. They talk to PowerSellers
face-to-face at conferences as well as communicating with them online,
and that gives them keen insight into seller concerns and challenges.
Brad and Debra are great writers, and the 2nd Edition of eBay
PowerSeller Secrets is a worthwhile investment for online sellers.

Ina Steiner, Editor, AuctionBytes


This completely revised and updated edition of one of the bestselling eBay books (35,000 copies in print) includes:

Many new profiles of successful PowerSellers, the scoop on new services like eBay's Reviews and Guides, eBay's Web 2.0 features, Marketplace Research Reports, and ProStores. Also, how to make money from new advances in thinking, technology, and marketing, (like eBay’s thriving Affiliates program) and even selling through Amazon and your own website. Plus, we've added end-of-chapter checklists to help you stay on track!

eBay PowerSeller Million Dollar Ideas
Selling successfully on eBay is more challenging than ever. To help sellers break through all the many roadbloacks they face, we interviewed hundreds of PowerSellers and asked them for their best ideas. This all-new book presents the very best out of the many hundreds of suggestions we received.

Note: Whereas our first book, eBay PowerSeller Secrets, is a "best-practices" book, this one focuses just on the areas most challenging to sellers today. We present each idea and then offer key points for how to best put that idea to work.

"Brad & Deb Schepp really know how to give eBay sellers what they want! As a long-time eBay PowerSeller and Certified eBay Education Specialist, I know first-hand, what it takes to become successful and all the pitfalls that one must go through to obtain PowerSeller status. eBay PowerSeller Million Dollar Ideas has it all! The information is invaluable and easy to read. I learned so many new ways to save time and money, just in the first few chapters and there are sooooooo many fabulous tips and tricks, that it was hard to figure out which one I wanted to try first!

I really enjoyed reading about all the different ideas of my fellow PowerSellers and felt like I had made a whole new group of friends, after reading all of the "Meet A PowerSeller" profiles. The personal touch was a great addition to all the technical information.

"This book is a must-read and well worth the cover price, as the book will pay for itself over and over again. This will be required reading for all of my future eBay students!"

-- Stephanie Inge aka Stephintexas
