The problem I hit with the Dummie books is that they always seems to fall short of what you really need to know and you only get a general overview. I've been selling on eBay for years, and the only reason I read this latest edition was to see if there were any new tips available. There were not. It's a good jump off point for an absolute beginner. Beyond that, go elsewhere to learn.

This is a good basic book about buying and selling on e-Bay. The author makes it interesting, and gives many examples throughout the book on what she is describing. This book is a valuable source of information and it is written in such a way as to also be entertaining, not dull.
This is a typical example of the "For dummies" series. The information is simple, easy to understand, not very deep, not terribly technical. It is informative, and it helps get you going if you knowledge about the site is zero or near-zero.

This is a photo of the informative pages of the book I read. As you can see, it was a 2016 edition, so I was expecting something new, something that I didn't know, anything besides the very basic.

The following image is the table of contents. I, of course jump

This author has written a series of "For Dummies" books about eBay which are intended to be read sequentially as you become more advanced in the topic. This is the very first book, and it is for true beginners. It walks you through extremely basic topics such as setting up an account on eBay, learning how to buy, and starting to sell. That's about where it ends. Unfortunately, this was more elementary than I was looking for, but the writing keeps you engaged so I will likely check out one of the ...more

Per chi è davvero ignorante sul funzionamento di eBay è un ottimo libro.
Copre praticamente tutto quello che c'è da sapere per imparare a fare acquisti oculati e vendite.

Purtroppo non copre minimamente la parte che interessava a me (i negozi eBay), ed è molto orientato al mercato americano, trattando estesamente le forme di pagamento, di tassazione e soprattutto di spedizione disponibili solo in USA.

Wanted some quick pointers for selling on eBay - not the book for me - made it seem a complicated and expensive process - so much so that I almost didn't bother. Turns out eBay is so simple (and cheap) that I didn't need this book complicating things at all.

This book is out of date, which I don't blame the book for since I bought it at a used bookstore. But what I don't like about it is having to wade through all the attempts at stupid humor to find useful information.

At a glance, this book promises to provide the info I want/need to sell some kindly used things via the "information superhighway." I can appreciate a book for giving me "just the facts.
