Febuary 2012 Ebay Coupon Code

Finding coupon codes for eBay is an almost impossible task, and any website that claims they have a "coupon code" for ebay is most likely lying to you. However, there is a way that you can get cash back on all of your ebay purchases. You just have to go through the website: BigCrumbs.com

I have been shopping through BigCrumbs since about 2008. It is great because you not only get cash back on every eBay purchase, but you also get cash back when you shop through other retailers.

In January alone I got $139 in cash back from my ebay and other online christmas shopping. The great thing is, you also make money when you refer friends. So the more people you refer, the more money you will get back each month!

So, an eBay coupon code may not be what you are looking for. But you can easily get cash back from your eBay and you can get money when your friends buy things too if you sign up at BigCrumbs.com

What should I sell on ebay? Domain Names!

Everyone is always looking to expand in what they can offer on ebay. I have made many recommendations, from selling legos to nintendos, and pictures pulled from magazines. I have just come across a hot new niche to sell on ebay.

It is time to get into selling URLs on ebay. Lots of people are interested in buying domain names, and now is the time to do it. There are still many unique and profitable names out there to buy and then sell at a profit.

Selling domain names on ebay is really similar to selling real estate. Except of course, that the initial investment is much lower, and the potential percentage of return is much higher.

I just bought this report about how to buy and sell domain names on ebay, and it was well worth it.  For the money I spent on the book I was able to double my investment in 3 weeks.  I have already sold 5 domain names, with more on the way.

Get Higher Prices by Experimenting with Auctions

* Trying to stand out from a crowd by offering free
shipping or lowering prices and raising shipping costs.

* Changing the keywords in the your auction titles. Did
you know eBay will tell you the five most frequently
searched phrases for each category. Well eBay does. Even
better, eBay even puts them in order. You can find these
five most frequent searches by going into any category and
looking at the "Related Searches" links found just under
the search box at the top of every category page.

* Removing links to store items. I've seen a lot of
auctions with columns of links to store categories. Do
these links help people find additional items or distract
them from the single listing? I don't know.

* Trying different categories, or using the two
category option. I know from my past results a Marx toy
train accessory will usually bring more money listed in one
of the Lionel categories. (Lionel and Marx are different
brands of toy trains.) I wouldn't know that if I hadn't
tested it.

A short aside here. EBay's rules say you must list
the item in the most relevant category. Because there is a
Marx category, the item should be listed there. To get
around this, I list in BOTH categories, and include the
words "USE WITH LIONEL" in the title. That is also an
acceptable way to get a keyword into a title. "USE WITH,"
or "FOR" and the secondary keyword.

* Remember to pay attention to the eBay listing fees
when selecting prices to test. An auction listed with a
starting price of $9.99, will cost you less in listing fees
than the same auction with a starting price of $10.00.

The Smurfs Are Back! New Smurf Movie 2009

The word on the street is that there is going to be a new Smurf Movie in 2009. Rumor has it, it may be part of a trilogy. The Smurf Movie may also be in 3D (though it is unlikely the characters will be).

Well, I know what you are asking, "Why are you bringing up the Smurf Movie? What do Smurfs have to do with eBay?"

Well eBay friends I will tell you. This post is a trend watch, and I am guessing that The Smurfs will be the hot new trend.

I am assuming this will be similar to the Transformer trend of the past. I am sure there will be a lot of marketing to promote the New Smurf movie in the next year, so now is the time for you to take action.

I recommend that while you are out at garage sales, or if you see any cool smurf items on the internet, or have any at home, that you hang on to them until the movie comes out.

I Sense a high demand for smurf items on the horizon, so keep your eyes peeled and get ready to jump on the Smurf Movie Bandwagon.

eBay News and Information: Links for Mar 1

Rob Pergoraro of the Washington Post wants to hear how you feel about the recent eBay changes.

Reuters reports that eBay Sees Growing Risks in Coming Years.

"If these changes cause sellers to move their business away from our sites or otherwise fail to improve gross merchandise volume or the number of successful listings, our operating results and profitability will be harmed," eBay said.
According to AuctionBytes, eBay may introduce a split screen to display auction results.
eBay may have found a solution that will make both auction and fixed-price buyers and sellers happier: a split-screen results page that shows auction listings on one side and fixed-price listings on the other.
eBay Numbers were Reported to be inflated according to pheebay.com.

As per normal with eBay, the conspiracy theories are already circulating about inflated listing numbers to disguise the boycott impact and artificial stats to satisfy Wall Street analysts.

Learn How To Sell on eBay

If you would like to learn how to sell on eBay but do not want to buy a book, I recommend that you dig around in the archives of this website, the
eBay Selling Guide, or take a look at Lizard Wisdom, or TameBay.

There is a lot of great information out there if you want to learn how to sell on eBay, you just have to make sure to be skeptical of your sources.

eBay News: eBay Boycott Causes Auction listings to drop 13%

From USA Today:

Auction listings on eBay.com dropped some 13% since the strike started Feb. 18
to about 13 million items, according to third-party tracking sites such as
dealscart.com and medved.net.

This quote misrepresents the actual effectivness of the eBay boycott. Ebay, did in fact drop 13% since Feb. 18. But if you look at the beggining of February there were about 13 million auction listings to start with. Thus, this small time frame only captures a small spike and valley in the graph. It does not actually represent how eBay is doing as a whole throught the month of February.

This is another case of the Media skewing the numbers for a story.

eBay reports that it has seen no difference in the ammount of auctions listed since the boycott began.

eBay News: Forbes says dump eBay stock

From Forbes.com

One name the gurus no longer want in their portfolios: eBay (nasdaq: EBAY). Analysts who favor the stock point out that eBay is the No. 1 global e-commerce brand, with a presence in nearly 40 markets. And the company likes to give back to its shareholders: eBay has repurchased $3.2 billion worth of stock since July 2006 and may repurchase another $2.8 billion under current authorizations.

But analysts also point out concerns, noting, for instance, that growth has slowed down in the company's two largest markets: the U.S. and Germany. EBay also has to deal with competition from rivals like Google (nasdaq: GOOG), Yahoo! (nasdaq: YHOO) and Amazon (nasdaq: AMZN), and the recently announced decision of well-respected CEO Meg Whitman to step down.

EBay's shares have slipped about 18% in the past 12 months, well off the October high of $39. The M100 decided it was time to bail.
