Hello and glad to be a part of the forum.

I've been an eBay seller for a couple of years sporadicly in college, and looking to ramp it up now that I'm home for the summer. I'm interested in designing my own website and I have signed up for a class at the community college in webpage design.

I also sell a lot of things off ebay on local car enthusiast forums. It's interesting to compare the differences between the two markets. It's also sometimes funny to see sellers reactions when a buyer claims they can "get it cheaper on eBay"

Anyhow, I'm here to share as much as I can and learn as well.

Welcome Chris!

I've been selling on eBay since 1999, online since 1994, and have another new online business. Any questions, just ask!

I look forward to learning new tricks from you

Welcome Chris!

I have purchased several printers on eBay and definitely found them cheaper there! (I say several though, because I got caught up in the moment, bid on several auctions for the same kind of printers and ended up winning them!)

No worries though...I still paid less for all of them on eBay then I would have paid for one brand new from a store!

Hi Chris ~

Welcome to the forum! I actually started my businesses on ebay (although I never used their "storefront") and expanded from there. No longer have time to sell on ebay, but I definatly check there for some of my supplies and see if I can get a good deal.
