This week on That Kat Radio, Tim Chapman joined us to talk about eBay Homeruns
In segment One, Kat and Tim talked about eBay news.
Kat explained about eBay’s program, The Global Shipping Program. If you sign up as an eBay seller, if someone from a foreign country buys your item then you only have to ship the item to the eBay warehouse in Kentucky, that means you only have to pay domestic shipping. eBay takes that product and takes responsibility for getting it to your foreign buyer. Last May 15th eBay added another 38 countries, so now it’s over 100 countries that seller can ship their items to.
Kat and Tim spoke about another eBay announcement, how to use eBay Shipping Supplies Coupon. When eBay changed the fees to the eBay stores, one of the bonuses they gave for eBay stores was a coupon to buy eBay branded shipping supplies. You have to use it all at once, you can’t split it in different transactions.
Another thing Kat added, USPS is announcing a rate change. You can find the details about announcements on eBay.com or USPS.com.

This has a good pattern, so patterns come into play, the fancier the better. When he first started this, he couldn’t figure out all those patterns. He went to a few websites to hunt for the patterns. Take the time to find the pattern and put it in the title and you’ll do good.
Kat and Tim spoke about Homerun item #201590354523, New Old Stock Vtg 1964 Fender Bass Guitar Flatwound Strings nice. Tim said he found this in swapme and thought it was good because it still has the receipt from 1964, so he bought it for USD$5.00. He sold it for USD$159.50 with 8 bids.

Tim said that he was at an estate sale and found this with a USD$10.00 sticker and saw that it was Parker 51, so he put it in his pile and bought it. It was sold for USD$155.50 with 15 bids. Tim added that he put “used condition” in the description because he’s not sure if it wasn’t used and it shows a little indication that it was used. He used to put “excellent condition” in the title but Tim said he doesn’t do that any more and instead just put “used condition” and let the buyer decides. Since then he is getting better feedbacks.
