Chat Boards
When you have a consignment
question, who do you ask?  
Many consignment sellers
frequent the
Forum or eBay Trading
Assistants Discussion Board to
learn and to help others.  Note:
Trading Assistants are the name
eBay uses for their eBay
consignment sellers.  

Help your community while
increasing your customer base.  
Reporters love big
events.  In some states, a
fundraising license is required if
you receive a fee.  For eBay
sales, the eBay Safe Trading
Manual says: "If you sell items
on eBay and a portion of the
proceeds goes to charity, but
you receive a fee for the sale,
you must be a licensed
professional fundraiser."
