Sell Used Books Online for Profit


FREE Tips, Tools, Information and Resources for Beginning & Professional eBay and Amazon Sellers

This is the oldest and largest training site serving eBay and Amazon sellers since 1999

There are hundreds of books, eBooks, coaches and unfortunately just plain scams that claim to teach you how to make money on eBay and Amazon. Many are written by people who have never been successful at anything except selling eBooks! I was an eBay PowerSeller long before I wrote my first book about eBay.  I also sold on Amazon for several years before writing my first Amazon book.

My wife, Karen, and I still sell on eBay and Amazon every day! My success didn't come from selling my books. It came from being an experienced, online seller.

Along the way Karen and I took notes. We noticed what worked and what didn't. We found the tools, the information and gained the know-how to successfully sell online. This website is where we share what we've learned.

Do you want to sell on eBay?  Interested in selling on Amazon?
Either way, we've got you covered!  Let us show you what we've learned.

Back in 1999, after losing my job for the second time in my life, I decided to quit playing the J.O.B. lottery and go into business for myself. My wife took a deep breath and said: "Well there isn't much security in that, but I'm willing to try it for a while." We had just started learning how to sell on eBay so that is where we focused our efforts. We haven't looked back since.

We are very active in the eBay community where I have participated in eBay sponsored forums and panel discussions. Everything I write about in my courses comes from experience. I use the same tools and techniques I teach about every day. And best of all --I love to teach. I am doing something I love --helping others make money and find psychic and financial freedom. We not only make a great deal of money on eBay --it's a lot of fun!

eBay and Amazon offer the lowest barrier of entry to making money on the Internet. Anyone can learn to build a professional business. Working part-time you can earn extra income for yourself or your family. Work full-time and you can build your business into a complete web-based enterprise with an above-average annual income.

But --You cannot do this by purchasing one of the many "make-money-get-rich quick" programs that everyone else is selling. Our large books are professionally printed, bound and shipped the same business day by priority mail. We also sell a number of eBooks on specialized subjects

Our training manuals are designed to get you up and running without delay. They are written in clear concise text, spiral bound. You can open them flat next to your computer while you work.

Let us show you how to make money on eBay and Amazon!
