Jim "Grandpa" Nelson


My course, "The Basics of Selling" covers the soup and nuts of eBay; everything from the eBay and paypal sign up, to making the sale and cinching the deal! 

I am an Online Success Institute (OSI) Rockstar, having received much of my entrepreneurial education from Janelle Elms, who is an eBay visionary, eBay University instructor and certified business consultant. 

I'm up-to-date on the most recent changes at eBay; from customer service and the DRS ratings to the feedback changes. I offer you access to the vast knowledge I've acquired from being an eBay Shooting Star Powerseller for the past eleven years.

 Forget all the negative press you may have heard regarding the latest eBay changes

I know the eBay landscape, (both the old and the new) and can turn the changes into a bonus to make them work to your advantage! THE BASICS OF SELLING COVERS:

  • Setting up your eBay account 
  • Researching the marketplace 
  • Creating a listing 
  • Choosing your Camera 
  • Taking great photos 
  • Pricing your item 
  • Writing a compelling listing description 
  • Registering with PayPal 
  • Using PayPal to receive payments
  • Monitoring your auction 
  • After the auction closes

It's a large sea to learn to swim in and I try and cover it all in my classes. Plenty of time for questions and answers at the end of each session should I not cover your particular question. Look forward to sharing my vast knowledge with you and providing an exciting learning experience to help make you a brilliant eBay seller too! Let's talk!
