    He should have used table salt if he was a scab, but who knows why fathers did what they did, sometimes I think we were given jobs outside just so he could have some peace and quiet. I had to dig some holes so I bought an auger. My older brother thought I was crazy but a year later he came to borrow it.

    Scavenger Life Episode 300: Our 300th Episode!! Now let's talk taxes...
    Scavenger Life



    Published on Mar 5, 2017
    Congrats to everyone on our 300th episode! We posted our first podcast in March of 2013. Four years ago! We say congrats to you guys because we wouldn't have kept recording each and every week if you didn't show up to share with us. I'm glad we've found our people, the Trash Elves.

    We received our tax bill from the accountant. Double ouch. Good news is that we made more money than expected in 2016. Bad news is we didn't pay enough over the year so we have a hefty tax bill to pay by April 15. All of our eBay profits in March will go to the upkeep of this great nation. We do our best to stay on top of our numbers, but being self-employed with varying income makes it difficult. Well, if we're paying a lot of taxes it means business is good.

    eBay announced their Spring Seller Update. We talk it about it in length here https://goo.gl/Edf9h3. Basically it's higher fees and lower discounts. Not great, but we still make great money on eBay. You can also read how eBay is supposedly going to spend the extra money they get from us https://goo.gl/4bkt4r.
    Sellers won't be happy, but it's just business.

    Hope you had a good week.

    We live in rural America, and we are Scavengers -- especially when it comes to making money on eBay by selling items we find in or near the waste stream, at auctions, yard sales and thrift stores. This allows us to avoid full time jobs, which gives us more time to scavenge and enjoy our lives. It's a positive reinforcing cycle.

    We are eBay Top Rated + Power Sellers. Each week we post a couple 1 hour long podcasts sharing stories about our eBay selling. We welcome all questions and stories of your own eBay experiences. Sharing helps make us all better Scavengers.

    11 Things That Changed In The Reselling Industry Over The Last 4 Years

    FREE BOOK - 100 AMAZING ITEMS TO RESELL
    http://greenroomuniversity.com/100book

    http://raikenprofit.com/freeshopifyco...

    In this video I share with you 11 things that have changed in the reselling business over the last 4 years. If you are selling on eBay and or selling on Amazon FBA you will want to watch this video in full.

    11 Things That Changed In The Reselling Industry Over The Last 4 Years

    1.) Evolution of the scanner and smart phones ( Apps, software, speed & efficiencies especially with Amazon )

    2.) Competition has increased significantly. Why? The internet ( Facebook, YouTube, TV Shows, Economy, ease of selling - FBA )

    3. ) Brand restrictions on Amazon have increased ALOT!

    4.) Prices at thrift store’s have increased a ton

    5. ) The importance of niching down and building your skill set has become necessary for survival in the reselling game. With the increase of competition knowing things that others don’t and or building businesses in fields such as wholesale, PL have been very popular. 6.) PREP CENTERS - Scaling your businesses has become even easier with the introduction to prep centers ( Prime zero prep )

    7.) The slow death of Retail Arbitrage…. ( For new sellers ) 8.) Information OVERLOAD on YouTube ( The community

    9.) The eBay APP - Super easy to list on eBay now!

    10.) The book market in particular is being squeezed on Amazon FBA ( Higher fees, LTSF )

    11. ) From falling in LOVE with Amazon to going back with your X (eBay )

    I hooked up the trailer and hauled in a mega load of scrap. All the little bits and pieces sure do add up to a good sized pay day! Total weight was 1881 lbs! Also I was taking apart some small engines and looking for parts I can sell on eBay.

    Scavenger Life Episode 301: Our Best eBay Week Ever
    Scavenger Life



    Published on Mar 12, 2017
    This week was another example of why we love what we do. Instead of working on eBay, Ryanne's sister visited us and we spent each day doing fun stuff with her. We hiked in the mountains, cooked big meals, talked about projects we're working on and ones we want to work on. We also had time to go to our new favorite auction and buy the biggest truckload of stuff we've ever bought.

    We also had our best week in our eBay store than we've had in a long time. Why? Who knows. Unlike other sellers who have theories as to why eBay sales are up and down, we just think it's pretty random. But we can have these great weeks because we've put in all the work up front by listing as many items as we can. The summer slow down is sure to come, so we're enjoying it while it lasts.

    On the forum, a scavenger offered up a very interesting ethical situation. She listed an item that sold immediately for $30. Other people messaged her saying it was really worth $300. If she cancelled the sale, they would by it for the higher price. What would you do? Join the conversation: http://www.scavengerlife.com/forums/t...

    Nothing to see in this one. Best bet if interested is to listen in one window, play around on GIM or surf the web in a different window. It's approx. 1 hr long.

    Scavenger Life Episode 302: How to Deal with Dreaded eBay Scammers Lurking Everywhere!!
    Scavenger Life



    Published on Mar 19, 2017
    In over 20,000 items we've sold on eBay since 2008, we've never had an eBay Scammer™. A scammer is someone who buys an item knowing full well they're going to cheat you. It involves pre-meditation. Maybe they exist and we haven't run into them? Maybe the Scammers don't buy the kind of weird, vintage stuff we sell. Maybe the scammers exist for the people who only sell new electronics? We know there are long time eBay sellers who will swear and testify to the numerous times they've been scammed, but it hasn't happened to us.

    However we certainly have our share of Grumpy Buyers™. Why is it important to be careful about not labeling a Grumpy Buyer with the label, Scammer? Because Scammer is a loaded word that brings way too much emotion into a business transaction. It assumes that the person is coming after us personally to do us harm. Instead, we get buyers who are just upset and need t be treated professionally.

    Grumpy buyers include:
    --They just changed their mind ie (Buyer's Remorse) and don't want to pay for return shipping.
    --They want to keep the item but are fishing for a partial refund. Usually tied to buyers remorse.
    --Buyers who are unreasonable and most likely unhappy and angry about their life circumstances. We just happen to be in their line of sight on a bad day.
    --Buyers who have untreated mental illness or addiction problems. Yes, these people use the internet and we always hope they seek the help they need.

    We never answer any question sent to us outside the eBay system. We are always professional and brief in our conversation. We never accuse or argue or get into long conversations. We always ask for further information where the buyer often ends up admitting there really isn't a problem. Or we offer choices that the buyer must take action on. We control the conversation following eBay's rules.

    One thing we NEVER do is ignore the buyer who has a complaint and wants a return. When a seller ignores a buyer, this is the only time we've seen eBay take money out of the seller's account for a refund and let the buyer keep the item. The seller has chosen to ignore the system.

    And let's be clear how rarely returns happen for us. In the past 90 days, we have a return rate of 3.26%. That's 19 out of 582 items. This is high for us since we just got out of the holiday season when buyers are more prone to returns. (Big retailers can have as high as 20% return rate during the holidays.) Out of those 19 returns, only 2 were grumpy buyers. If you have a much higher return rate and a higher rate of buyers you think are Scammers, I would look at your process and ask why so many buyers seem unhappy. Our experience has shown that a wide majority of buyers order an item and keep it.

    Because we have a system in place to handle any and all complaints, we sleep well at night. Some frustration pops up every now and again at a particularly grumpy buyer, but they just get fed into our system and processed to eBay's satisfaction. The main goal is to treat customers fairly and be seen as a good seller in eBay's eyes. If we have to pay $30 a month in return shipping fees (which would be very high for us), it's worth every penny for the peace of mind.

    These are the forum conversations we mentioned in this podcast:
    --A seller found a hat for $1 and sold for $1000: http://www.scavengerlife.com/forums/t...
    --If you want to quit your job and sell full-time, you must budget your expenses: http://www.scavengerlife.com/forums/t...

    Hope you had a good week!

    We live in rural America, and we are Scavengers -- especially when it comes to making money on eBay by selling items we find in or near the waste stream, at auctions, yard sales and thrift stores. This allows us to avoid full time jobs, which gives us more time to scavenge and enjoy our lives. It's a positive reinforcing cycle.

    We are eBay Top Rated + Power Sellers. Each week we post a couple 1 hour long podcasts sharing stories about our eBay selling. We welcome all questions and stories of your own eBay experiences. Sharing helps make us all better Scavengers.
