    SHF Radio #67: Selling Consignment on eBay Interview W/ Powerseller Angi Diller

    in Hobbies

    Her eBay user ID was a perfect choice several years ago - my_real_job_is_tattoos.  Ironically as her eBay business grew she was able to leave behind that "real job" and make a full time living as a work from home eBay Powerseller.  Angie Diller is my guest on Scouting Hot Finds Radio and our topic is essentially sourcing.  For Angie she runs a business totally based upon consignment with regular pickers that bring her items to sell on eBay.  This interview is the first in a series of shows that I'm going to publish describing strategies that people in the hobby can make a little money to feed their habit.  I got my real start on eBay as a consignment seller about 10 years ago so this interview brings me back to my own eBay roots.  As you listen to the interview we dive into how Angie runs her business including talking about unique sticky points with selling on consignment.  How do you determine the consignment rate?  What happens with returns? How do you handle your consignors to make sure there are no bad surprises?  These are all questions that Angie and I dive into during this interview.  As for pickers she has some war stories to share in the hot Michigan estate sale market.  If you enjoy this episode be sure to tune in over the next few months as I do more show topics about making money selling memorabilia.  You can visit my main website at http://www.scoutinghotfinds.com to find more.
