One of the main issues that must be overcome starting out, is that of building a solid reputation in term's of positive comments and feedback from people you have successfully dealt with. This can be difficult to get started in the beginning, but there are some ways. Positive feedback is critical because anyone considering a purchase refers to it as their assurance the transaction will be handled correctly and what they believe they are getting is in fact actually what they get. Probably the best way to start and build this is to take the item one wishes to sell, look at what others are charging for the same or similar, and offer it for sale at a substantially lower price. This investment will pay off moving forward as one will begin building that positive resume.

If someone wishes to expand their product offerings beyond whatever personal items they begin with, there are several ways to evaluate and decide upon. On-line, there are multiple offerings that might be considered. Some caution must be exercised here though, because unfortunately, all are not what show on the surface. One can locate sources available that enable them to check their legitimacy, and if found to be okay to deal with, consider their products and what they want you to pay for them. Next, go on-line and see what they are selling for. Do the math and one can make a decision to invest or not. It also helps to do some investigating on one's own to try and find sources that may have unique and cost-efficient products that one can purchase and turn around for a profit. It is important to be creative and always on the lookout for that something special.

The final and most important piece of advice to be offered to the beginner is to be totally honest and up front with whatever you are doing in terms of describing the product accurately and following through on the pledges of quick and reliable delivery and honoring any and all guarantees immediately. This will be critical in properly getting the ball rolling and will pay off forever moving forward.
