This Entrepreneur Pocket Guide offers sound business advice for anyone interested in establishing an online business selling clothing, shoes, and accessories, eBay's second-largest category. Davis provides suggestions ranging from general (why a 99-cent starting bid works best for popular items) to the specific (which children's clothing brands sell best online).

In an easy-to-read style, "How to Sell Clothing, Shoes, and Accessories on eBay" offers ideas based on the author's own selling experiences combined with insight from eBay PowerSellers, i.e., online sellers with quantity, quality, and longevity. The book is punctuated by helpful sidebars with additional information, such as how to accurately measure garments for the perfect fit and how to take effective photographs to display items on eBay.

The book also teaches readers where to find clothing bargains, how to price and market items for maximum online sales, how to safely wrap and ship products, how to run your business safely and ethically, and how to provide great customer service. The final chapter, "Snags, Snarls, and Snickers," is a potpourri of seller anecdotes intended to inform and entertain the reader.

Although focused on clothing, shoes, and accessories, much of the material in this book can be used for buying and selling a variety of products, both online and at your local department stores, outlet malls, consignment stores, and thrift shops. A resource guide, glossary, and index provide extra information for getting newbies started on their eBay business.
