(Post Updated on November 2017) This eBay description template generates 50 sales a day. What’s more impressive about it is that it’s for a $680 massage chair! That’s a $34,000 revenue from a single listing – per day! Update: The seller offers occasional discounts so the price varies. In this post, I’m going to “reverse engineer” this eBay description template, so that you can implement the secret sauce on your eBay listings and boost your own sales.
This doesn’t require much of an intro – the more you save, the more you earn! You’re not actually going to avoid eBay fees altogether if you sell on eBay but there are quite a few powerful tactics to reduce your eBay fees.
