Selling rare and antiquarian books! Our guest is Andy Foster, president of Milton & Hubble Books, known on eBay as poetrytopower.
Bev, Chicago IL (samican2), has a challenge with items from buyers’ shopping carts requiring immediate payment. From the chat board, doveroh421 asked if a low Detailed Seller Rating (DSR) for shipping and handling charges results in a transaction defect, which prompted a rant by Griff in which he detailed the transaction defect rate requirements (linked from Seller Bookmarks under the Seller Resource tab in the eBay Radio archives). Judy, Salem IN (judybsa), had advice about valuing rare books for Diane, who called in during the first segment. Griff and Lee visited the eBay Radio Seller Resource Center, located under Seller Resources in the eBay Radio archives. Check it out!
Griff and Lee discussed how to get better search placement in Google via Google Adwords, from a post by Shana Champion in the eBay for Business blog at for-business.ebay.com. First-time caller Diane, St. Louis MO (ragstoriches8941), asked how she could determine the value of a rare signed book from 1908. Lee announced the URL for this year’s eBay Radio Party & Conference home page: Check it out at http://www.erVegas.com, and stay tuned to eBay Radio for more details. Lee showed Griff a listing for Steve McQueen’s first Husqvarna motorcycle.
