      jimmythejock, that's an interesting hub. It's fun to pretend to have millions to spend on art and jewelry. About trust between seller and buyer, if I remember right, one option is to use an escrow service.

      That is a grand idea, I will definitely let her know as it is frustrating that she spends her social security but she believes she is a tekky hehehe I guess and it gives her something to do. :)

      Hi AEvans, your mom should maybe buy a couple of small items from some sellers first to help her get a rating then she could begin selling, thanks for your comment.....jimmy

      Great information , but my elderly mom is trying to sell on ebay and it seems to me that ebay is taking her money, as they say join and then they say don't buy unless they are a known seller, so how is a 70 year old woman supposed to begin , and she is so honest t it hurts her feelings because nobody is bidding and mom is on a fixed income. Her name is angelstakethewheels , I told her to get off and quit wasting her time, but she is so darned determined to make a sale. So I do have to say that not all newbies are going to rob people of their money and they are all trying to make a little money for themselves. Please advise on how EBAY can help the newbies :)
