There can be little doubt that listing items on eBay, especially those which are unique and require significant work to craft a listing, that there is a need for helpers and experts. Taking multiple photos, crafting a listing and getting the title right does take some time. Especially for big ticket items. And, perhaps, that’s where such services can come in handy.
But a great deal of the heavy listing in getting the best prices lies with a seller reputation and feedback. So that’s what could be the big win with such services. Would you use this in Australia?
