Did you know that on average Craigslist only reaches 85,000 people in an area, where eBay's has 171 MILLION active users!
More users = more potential buyers if you offer shipping = quicker sales and higher profits

I am a veteran flipper who has been buying and selling used items (mostly on eBay) for 20+ years now. Two years ago I took a leap of faith and decided to go full time, right before our third baby was born. I quickly realized what I was doing was not enough to provide for our growing family. I needed to increase my profits to allow my wife to stay home with our kids.
After brainstorming and researching how I could increase my profits, I noticed that the large items listed on eBay were almost always listed for local pickup and if something was listed with freight shipping it usually sold quicker. At that time I even had a dining set listed on eBay for local pick up only.
I decided I could figure out the process of shipping something that large and listed the dining set with freight shipping (pictured below). It sold within a month for $2,200 (I paid $350 for it). I also had it cross posted on Craigslist and offer up for $750 with no bites during that month - that was a big lightbulb moment for me!
For the last 2 years we have been working to master everything there is to know about freight shipping, and we increased our sales (mostly from eBay) from $42K in 2015 to $133K in 2016! And now we would love to help others who are in a similar situation. Is that YOU?

I married into the flipping profession 10 years ago, and to be honest I didn't understand it at first. When I was dating Rob I had no clue what he did for an income. (And I'm pretty sure my parents were a little concerned as well. haha. ;))
But it did well for us through the years as a couple. I worked as a personal trainer and he did flipping part-time and home inspections part-time. We had a good income coming in and things were great.
Then kiddos came into the picture and life changed. Everything for the better! Except our finances. They started taking a big hit and we were barely scraping by. I cut back on training and after baby number three I had stopped completely. Getting a full-time job and putting them in daycare wasn't really an option for us, which meant Rob had to step up his game somehow.
The financial stress was starting to take a toll on my health (combined with lack of sleep from little kids and a baby), and we needed to figure out a better solution for higher flipping profits.
When he decided to start shipping freight it changed our financial situation. We now make much higher profits on large items and we are hoping that with this class it can help you too!
Are you a current flipper/reseller and ready to step up your game and your profits?
You can get a much higher price on eBay than any other platform on the market because of it's reach, and if you offer shipping you reach so many more customers!

"There is so much to learn about buying and selling to assure a successful experience. The relaxed atmosphere of the classes was comfortable and enjoyable."
"You were both so interactive with us and allowed us to guide the areas we needed help with. If I had only watched the first two videos I would have felt I made a good investment!"
"I would recommend these classes for anyone interested in learning more about the art buying, selling, and shipping" - Cyndi M.
"I just wanted to say you have really opened our eyes as to the products you can move on ebay. My wife and I have completely rethought our sales model based on what we have learned from you." Bryon T.
"I learned so much in the Increasing Your Furniture Flipping Profits Beta Master Class! Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us about shipping large items. I think this will definitely make a difference in our business. I looked forward to each class and appreciated the demonstrations that actually showed us how you pallet, crate and box your large items and how to go about listing, contacting shipping companies, etc and your willingness to be there to help us in the future. The unexpected phone call in response to my email question about shipping before you even started the class probably had something to do with me signing up for the class! It showed that you were willing to go the extra mile to help." - Pam Y.
