eBay Mobile App is the Way to List

I have been singing the praises of the eBay mobile apps for years and tonight I set my 64 year old husband up on the IPad Mini (okay it was for me to get him to like it so I can justify getting a new one with retina and data for me) and he listed 10 items in a half an hour.  I am not joking.. 

He listed LIKE items so he didn’t have to change a lot of categories and such and he copied and pasted the title to the description. 

Bam… he is liking it and I see Stitchery XPress growing big time in 2014 with two of us listing now.  You can download the eBay app at the Itunes store.  

Thanks eBay mobile.

Why I use eBay Mobile to Sell

There has been a lot of talk around the eBay community that an “expert” said that those listing on eBay and that are crazy about it are really not selling with mobile and are being paid by eBay to promote Mobile.  WRONG!!!!!  I use the eBay Mobile app for IPhone and IPad and list 100% on mobile.   I have some older listings that still need cleaned up as I move ahead to be mobile friendly. I have been using mobile totally since 2010 right after I attended eBay on Location.  

eBay is promoting mobile because it is the future. (expert says it is to keep the shareholders happy).  Young adults, grandmas, mother’s on the go, business people  all use it.   Get on the train and let’s go. 

Why Optimize for Mobile?

Why Optimize for Mobile?

 

Getting your listings ready for mobile.

Getting your listings ready for mobile.

To get rid of some of the falsehoods by this expert.  

You can use HTML in mobile with no problem. 

You can use bullets in mobile with no problem. Why would you?  Google Shopping does not allow it!

I do not get paid a dime to endorse eBay Mobile. I use mobile because it makes me money.

eBay Mobile Hint to list faster on eBay

I have an Iphone, Ipad and Ipad Mini.   Can I just tell you how much I love the Iphone app for eBay to list, sell and do all my correspondence and daily business.   I am not as big a fan of the iPad app. It is missing a number of features that the Iphone app as such as quick photo taking etc. I like to list from my mini as is it is a bit bigger and easier to handle so what do I do when I want to use the IPhone instead?   I download the IPHONE app to My IPAD Mini.  There is nothing like voice to text to get a listing done in no time.    I just love eBay. 

Solved my issue and the mobile app is about perfect.

I love this new video about eBay Mobile and how to list

Simple Credit Card Processing – PayPal Here

PayPal Here?  Do you ever wish you could take a credit card for some reason? You have a buyer on Craig’s list and they only have a credit card?  You sell jewelry at a craft show occasionally? You did some work for a friend and he says he will pay you later because he doesn’t have cash?  I can fix all those issues for you!!!!

You ask “How”?  It is called Simple Credit Card Processing with A PayPal Here device for your Smart Phone or IPad. 

You will need the following:

1 A PayPal account (to open any PayPal account they will do a credit check). Believe me if you are a seller you want credit checks done on all PayPal account holders to prevent fraud. 

2 An IPhone (3GS or Higher), IPad, IPad Mini or an Android with 2.33 or higher. 

3. A PayPal Here device.   You can order one from PayPal but will have to wait for it to arrive or you can go to your local AT&T or Staples Store and pay $15.00 and you will get the money refunded back to you.      Find a Staples or AT&T Store near you to pick up PayPal Here 

Now the details… 

The PayPal Here is great for small businesses, mom and pop shops, hair dressers, barbers, you name it, anyone that takes a credit cards occasionally, those with low average sales (merchant services charge a transaction fee in addition to a percentage), crafters, food market vendors, bike and car shows, the list is endless.  

One PayPal Here user told me that reason she likes it is because  it is “For easy, on the go, convenient transactions for your not so traditional business.”

So the nitty gritty and costs. 

There is no start up, monthly or annual fee. 

If you swipe a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express) the fee is a straight 2.70%.  There is no transaction fee that most payment merchants charge for each swipe. 

If you have to scan a card of key the card into your smart device, the fee will be 3.5o% and 15 cents for each transaction. 

The PayPal Here is encrypted for better fraud protection.

PayPal Here is available in US, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, and Australia.  Great news that the UK will have the PayPal Here service soon. 

Marvelous customer support whether you prefer speaking to someone live on the phone, email or even community support from users on different platforms such as twitter, facebook and other sites. 

Your money is immediately available in your PayPal account.  If you have a business account you can get a PayPal Debit card and use it to withdraw money from an ATM or to use it to buy at stores and other businesses.  (if you run your card as a credit card (it still really is a debit card) then you get 1% back every quarter.  If you don’t have the debit card you can transfer money from PayPal to your bank and it will take about three working days to reach your account. 

The name PayPal gives people a feeling of trust in the marketplace.  (Note: the buyer uses any credit card, they do not have to have a PayPal account to Pay). I get asked that question a lot. 

The device locks in place so that it does not swing around when you are trying to swipe a card. 

You can invoice customers from the Here. 

THE BEST reason in my opinion is they accept checks with NO FEES.  YES YES YES.  I get a number of checks in my business but by the time I have a chance to get the bank it could be a month or longer.  I just scan the check (front and back), upload to PayPal, put it aside for a few days until it clears then destroy the checks.

So what is holding you back from ordering a PayPal Here?  Are you thinking your will never use it?  You will be upset when you don’t have one. So order one  right here  You can thank me later….

paypalhere It’s cute huh? and it fits right in your pocket.  

Now go make some money and call all those people that owe you money and get paid ….
