Advice For My Online World : hey guys welcome back to TohirT's channel how are you doing I hopeeveryone had a fantastic week as always it is another Saturday another weekend or maybe you're watching this video during the week day and hey I hope you had a great weekend and yeah we're back here and in today's video we're actually gonna do a little bit of an update on one of my prior videos where I initiate this process of saving money towards buying some new camera equipment for this channel by following gary vaynerchuk's advice on how to sell some of the junk out of my house the good news is that I've been selling some stuff the great news is that I actually sold $2,000 worth of different junk out of my house well some of those things were actually pretty good but we can probably count them as junk but anyway all it means is that I'm 40% through towards my main goal of $5,000 which really feels great especially because the camera that I am after cost about as much as I've already sold items for so I'm already on the active hunt for the first piece of the equipment to upgrade this channel and step up the quality of all of my videos going forward what I want to focus on for the rest of the video is really sharing my experience sharing things that I've learned throughout this journey over the last couple of weeks that will hopefully assist you as you are trying to offload some of those things from your closet lesson number one is one man's trash is another man's treasure I want to use the example of the old sony vaio laptop that I bought back in 2010 and you know what I sold it that thing wasn't even working the laptop was dead but I wasn't actually in pretty good condition so I decided to list it maybe someone else will be up there who is looking for parts for their old vaio laptop to help them refurbish their own laptop and you know what yeah I sold it I made 50 bucks on a piece of electronic that I would've otherwise just throw away that was a great feeling and I think you should all think about it as you go through your closet as you go through your garage or any other place where you store all this oldl stuff because some of the items some of the electronics or any other kind of piece of equipment that you think is actually broken down and no one would be interested in can actually be a very sellable item somewhere in eBay I sold it within the week which was 50 bucks plus added to my account lesson number two avoid in the scams one of the very first listings had I've posted on eBay and there was the platform of my choice was actually sold within literally three or four hours and I was so excited I was so pumped because that was one of the high ticket items that was one of the old cameras that I had and I was like yes I scored a couple of hundred bucks on this one but that sale turned out to be a scam so you need to be very careful about those people who are out there who are hunting for others who have high-cost items on sale on a platform like eBay and what they do they actually go and bid for the item and they pretend like they're gonna buy it and then they just wait they just wait for you to ship the item in all the excitement and all the joy that you have after selling several hundred dollars worth of goods without actually checking the payment status first my advice in avoiding these kind of scams as you selling one of your high ticket items make sure even if the sale went through make sure you have the payment cleared first do not even print the shipping label until you actually see the money deposited in your account and hopefully if you're using some legitimate platform like eBay you have the PayPal account associated with that eBay accounts so you get the payments straight into your PayPal so you can actually see the hard money wired to your account and only then go ahead and ship it in my case in the scammer who was after my item went at great lengths trying to prove that they're an actual buyer so not only did they try to communicate with me and ask me about whether I ship the item they also went ahead and requested my personal contact information my cell phone number from eBay and they texted me during my work hours saying hey I'm your buyer from so-and-so lot did you ship my item they are very efficient they know what they're doing beware of the scammers beware of who you selling the item to and do not print the shipping label and do not ship your item until you actually see the payment cleared and by the way when you're checking for the payment status do not use some email coming from eBay or PayPal as a proof because those emails can be faked as well if you want you can actually double-check and see the sender's address just double check if it's coming from at ebay.com at PayPal.com at whatever the app you're using dot-com but the best approach is still to have a bank account or a PayPal account associated with a merchant that you're using as a platform to sell your item and make sure you actually see the money deposited in your account before doing anything go to the first source go to your PayPal account or go to your bank account do not trust a simple email that can also be faked by the same scammer check and be diligent lesson number three do your research to reiterate I've been using eBay mostly as my main platform to sell all of my different items from the closet they have a price estimator they have this sort of like a gauge as you create the listing that tells you whether your item is fairly listed and you have a high probability of selling it or it's actually should be lower in price my piece of advice is that you use the information that they provide but double-check it don't forget any kind of platform any kind of merchant that you're using to sell your item will charge you a commission so it's in their best interest to make sure you actually sell whatever you're listing but that means that they're gonna try to lowball the price and make sure you price it as competitively as possible to the rest of the marketplace don't always blindly follow that go and do the research Google or check on the same platform say again if it's eBay go look up on the eBay similar kind of items in similar kind of condition and see what kind of price they're selling for and a good indicator for that on eBay are the current bid especially if it's an auction because the current bid will tell you that there is someone out there who is willing to pay that much for your item and if that amount is higher than what eBay is suggesting you to price your item at go ahead with that higher amount because at the end of the day you do want to extract the maximum value from whatever you're selling and you should not always be just following blindly some sort of algorithm that trying to maximize the benefit to the actual merchant and not only you lesson number four damn those fees if you like myself and you are selling those items to achieve a particular goal like in my case I'm trying to buy a piece of equipment I know how much that piece of equipment is priced for so I know how much I need to make you want to make sure as you plan as you list out all the different items as you create some sort of a budget of things and items that you're planning to sell you factor in the fees the fees usually come in two types one of them will be the shipping fee especially if you're selling online in your not doing some sort of like personal delivery or local pickup where someone comes to your house and actually picks up the item you want to make sure you factor in the shipping they a lot of different ways you can estimate the cost yet again eBay already gives you some sort of an estimation on how much it will cost you to ship a particular item but you can also go directly to the website say of USPS that is a local US based mailing service and you could go to them and check out how much it would cost you to ship a particular item of particular weight and particular dimension because you already have the box and everything in-house so you might as well go ahead and measure and do some rough estimation so take into account those fees because depending on where you're shipping this item to it can get very expensive and those shipping fees will eat into your profit the second type of the fee is the actual commission that the platform that you're using will charge you all of the apps and websites including eBay will charge you some sort of commission for your sale because that's their business that's how they make their money and it's only fair that they gonna charge you something to provide you with a platform in the eyeballs of all those buyers so again take into account example of eBay they charge about 10% off of your listed price plus the shipping price so you want to make sure you reflect that in your calculation in your estimation so if you're planning to sell something for hundred dollars and you're planning to charge ten dollars for shipping $110 eleven dollars of that will actually go to eBay to reiterate the commission from the marketplace and the shipping cost both of those items are just the cost of sales cost of doing business for you and is absolutely fine that's how this economy works and we're cool with that and these are the four lessons that I wanted to share with you today I hope they were helpful I hope as you plan to sell some of your own personal items you find this advice useful in at least one of the points of that raised today will help you gain a little bit more profit or just make your experience of selling the items online easier I'm planning to do at least another update like this and I also plan to do a couple of actual examples of things that I'm doing as I'm trying to get the money towards my goal so stay tuned make sure you check out the future videos if you've missed my original video go and check it out and I'll link it some over here
