Where can I buy bikini nights perfume?

March 3rd, 2013 1 comment

I have looked absolutely everywhere for Anchor Blue’s "Bikini Nights" perfume. I know it was discontinued quite a while ago, but I’ve looked everywhere trying to find it. Ebay, overstock, amazon, and every other online site within the first 50 pages of google search. Has anyone seen it for sale on any website, or know of a perfume really really similar?

Hi There,

Making a good smelling perfume is as much a matter of technique as it is art. Combining the various ingredients drop by drop using a complex formula can be daunting for the beginner or hobbyist. The slightest change in the formula can drastically alter the smell of the perfume, creating a foul smelling concoction in an instant.

Then again, the slightest change can also create a sweet smelling alternative scent. For the beginner, however, there’s a simple recipe to learn the basics of perfume making known as Orient Nights that’s quick to mix and presents a light, refreshing scent.

how do i start selling on ebay after i’ve been buying for a while?

February 7th, 2013 2 comments

i have an account already on ebay and have been buying stuff for 3 months on there i think. i want to start selling on there and i would sign up for paypal using my debit card. after i sign up for paypal what do i do to start selling on ebay?

btw, how much does ebay take away from you when you sell something? or when do they take away money and how much?

Read the "how to start selling" tutorial on Ebay would be my advice. There is a lot you need to learn and easy mistakes to avoid making. The sellers fees are listed clearly there, it depends on your starting price, whether you use Buy It Now or auction format etc. You may have to pay an insertion fee? Definitely a Final Value Fee (depends on the final selling price) and a fee to Paypal for accepting a payment. Bear these things in mind when selling :-

See how much similar items are selling for by "watching" one in My Ebay and check after the auction ends. It might not be worth your while bothering for low value items once the fees are paid.

Take a really good clear photograph to upload, don’t copy off the internet.

Weigh the item in its packaging before you work out the P&P, packaging can weigh heavy.

Heavy items do not sell well, people won’t pay a fortune for P&P so think before you sell esp. books which can be quite heavy.

Describe any defects/faults in full it saves having to issue a refund later on to an unhappy buyer.

Always get proof of posting stamped at the post office (this is free, not the same as registered post) because buyers can sometimes turn round and say an item never arrived. If you can scan/email proof of posting to them and have a clear refund policy stated on the auction this takes the wind out of their sales.

Always send expensive items by registered post only, choose that option from the list and sort out how much this is before you list the item.

Good communication is the key on Ebay, communicate with your buyers, answer questions promptly and keep them informed when you post the item.

How much should I sell my DSL for?

How much should I sell my broken ds lite for?
The only thing that’s wrong with it is the motherboard, I just replaced the entire touch screen (the part you touch and the display part), I bought a brand new charger for it, and a brand new battery. I will be selling it with:
x1 DS lite (broken, but good for most parts, and shell is in good shape)
x2 DS lite batteries
x1 DS lite charger
x1 extendable metal and plastic stylus

Total I paid around $70 for everything. I’m hoping a can make that back or close to it and put it towards a DSi

So how much should I sell it for?

After a little E-bay research, I found that completed listings for broken Nintendo DS Lites over the past few days had a:

Mininum of $24
Maximum of $58

and mean of $45.

I would recommend taking these statistics into account whien you chose a price. Ebay auctions can yield a lot, but if you are inexperienced at selling, as I am, they could make a new minimum statistic 🙂

I would advise trying to get $50+ for it. This way you can get above the average without being greedy. I don’t think that your "wish" of getting your money back is going to happen, however. Sorry!

Good luck with your sales!

How to get $2000 in less than 2 years?

January 22nd, 2013 6 comments

I’m 13 years old and I want to buy a 27" iMac. I already babysit but it will take 2 years to get the money…… What’s another way to get the money?
I’m not old enough to get a job.

General Strategies and Techniques on Saving Money and Earning More Money

Save as much money as you can! You’ll be surprised as to how quickly you can save a lot of money!

Here are a few suggestions:

Ways To Save Money & Ways To Earn More Money (Updated on 08/14/2010)

Don’t go out to eat. Example: don’t eat out at fancy, high-class restaurants. Instead, eat at a fast food restaurant or cook a healthy meal at home. It is much cheaper than the alternative.

If you are a teen or a young adult, you might want to hold a bake sale. You can have your other friends help you out, so that you can help attain your goal of saving and/or making more money.

If you have a habit of buying new clothes very often, then resist the urge to buy new clothes for a little while. You could potentially save a good amount of money.

Take personal finance courses online or at a high school or college/university.

If you are a teen or a young adult, you may want to have a dog-walking service.

To help you manage your money, try

Talk to a customer service representative at a bank or other financial institution and learn more about financial instruments.

Don’t go out to watch new movies in theaters. Watch movies on your TV at home. Rent movies using Netflix.

If you are a teen, you may want to think about babysitting. You can babysit your neighbor’s children.

Don’t spend too much money when going out with friends. Have a budget in mind before you actually meet up with your friends.

If you are a teen, you could try to mow the lawn. Many of your neighbors probably want their lawns to be mowed at a fraction of the price that they pay others to do the same work.

Invest your money in a CD (certificate of deposit). You can hold your money in a CD for 6 months or even a year. It generally pays more interest than the interest you get from a traditional savings account from a bank.

If you are a teen, do chores around the house. Your parents will appreciate it and you might get some money for it.

If you like to invest your money in the stock market, then you may want to invest your money in a commodity, such as gold. The value/price of gold is expected to increase in the future.

If you are a teen, then make sure to save the money that you get from your allowance (if you get an allowance).

If you like to invest your money in the stock market, then you may want to invest your money in specific large-cap and medium-cap companies that you trust. Apple (Stock Symbol: AAPL) and Google (Stock Symbol: GOOG) are two such stocks where you can choose to invest your money.

Try to sell something of value that you are willing to part with. Sell your old stuff on websites where many people make purchases, such as ebay or craigslist. You could also sell your stuff through a garage sale or a yard sale.

Try to hold a donation drive where your family, close friends, neighbors, and other acquaintances will be able to help you out and donate a little bit of money. These people will include your parents, brothers, sisters, close friends, relatives, grandparents, neighbors, and other acquaintances.

If all else fails, borrow money from other people (parents, brothers, sisters, close friends, relatives, grandparents, neighbors, acquaintances, etc.) in order to get a short-term loan.

Where from I can buy merchandise to sell in eBay ?

January 17th, 2013 7 comments

I like to sell goods to eBay but I do not from where I can buy goods to sell it in eBay ? Can anyone tell me ?
I wanted to say that I will not buy goods those will sell to ebay. I wanted to know who can give me the goods to sell on ebay and after selling goods he/she/they will get price of that goods and I will receive my commission selling her/his/their goods in ebay!

It seems you want to be a "consignment seller" or "trading assistant"

As in you want to list other peoples items and then charge a commission off the sale.

This business model tends to fail but if you want to pursue it -put up flyers around your community, get the word out that you offer this service.

Churches, colleges, supermarket bulletin boards.

I write about stuff like this in my blog here

To be an official ebay "trading assistant" you need a feedback level of 100. offers free listing accounts that includes options to keep track of consignment sales.

Google "consignment sales" "trading assistant" and read my blogs as i write them, lol

But, it would be more profitable to sell your own product- check your local craigslist, buy and haggle for stuff you know will sell well and high- i averaged 1200 a month profits at one point buying only wiis and xboxes off craigslist for resale – usually with less that 15 auctions a month! my business has since expanded, but its a great start for seed money

(I prefer an answer from someone who works for Ebay) What would eBay be like if they didn’t charge fees?

December 26th, 2012 3 comments

I am doing a school report in oppose and in favor of ebay fees.

I would like to know specifics of what may happen if eBay didn’t ask their sellers for fees or for as much as they currently ask for.

Employees can’t be paid
Maintenance can’t be paid
Full service can’t be provided…

Ebay didn’t charge fees originally. They were completely free. The more they increase their fees, the more they lose power sellers. In 2008, with the new CEO "genius" in charge, they made some changes, one of the major changes was they lied to their sellers and made it seem like they were charging less fees (by making the listing price cheaper), but they increased the final value fee, so people were paying an arm and a leg in fees once the item sold. There was also some feedback changes (sellers could no longer leave negative feedback for buyers who dont pay, and feedback hurts a sellers rankings in search), and other changes (they put digital download sellers out of business overnight, gave them a few days warning and suddenly came out and said digital download items weren’t allowed anymore). All of these changes, especially the fees, caused the powersellers to leave and go to other sites, especially craigslist. The surge in sellers going to craigslist caused ebay to decline in visitors. Less sellers means less items (the power sellers and digital download sellers accounted for thousands and thousands of listings), and this means less visitors because those items get listed in Google, and many visitors find ebay by googling items first instead of going directly to ebay. This was ebay’s downfall. In winter 2008, for the first time ever, Craigslist matched ebay in monthly visitors (I checked on Ebay continued to tell their investors that they were losing visitors because of the recession, which wasn’t true because Craigslist continued to increase around the same time. Ebay keeps increasing their fees to make up for the loss in visitors and actual sales, so its only a matter of time when this catches up to them, they cant keep it up forever.

I live in San Jose, where ebay is located, and they layed off more than 2,000 people in the past 2 years. They have more fees now than they ever did, but have much less employees than they did when they were free. Fees have nothing to do with service, employees, or maintenance….fee’s are only related to profits. The site could still run without fees, and they could generate income from selling advertising space on the site like Myspace does. They do sell advertising space, but its not enough and they will continue to try to squeeze more fees out of their sellers until their sellers are finally gone. Do a "completed listings only" search in advanced search. 80% of the items on there don’t sell. It was the opposite 5 years ago, and it’s not the economy, it’s less visitors. My websites still get sales and my sites are worldwide just like ebay is.

Amazon has lower fees, and doesn’t charge a listing fee, and continues to outdo ebay in generated income.

I would like to put a house for sale –via an auction. Does anyone know a serious auction house in Canada?

December 26th, 2012 3 comments

I am looking for a serious "auction house" in Quebec, Canada — the object is the sale of a heritage house in the Province of Quebec. Serious replies welcome.

eBay or eBay Canada


You don’t have to really "auction" your house off. You can just pay to list it on the eBay Real Estate section and let the millions of eBay users VIEW the house but not actually BID on it. It’s a great way to get TONS of people to see your house.

How to increase my chance of success in selling on eBay?

December 23rd, 2012 5 comments

I am not planning to open an eBay store. Just wondering if there are tricks to selling on eBay that I don’t know about. Like how to increase traffic to my items, how to advertise, and how to increase bidding. Most useful tips get 10 points.
I have sold a couple of items on eBay but usually not a lot of people bid or put on watch list. I eneded up with just 2 bids and sell for very low price. I wonder how I can get more people to see my ads in the first place.

One great way to attract buyers is to have a low starting bid. I typically start the item at the price I paid for it (I usually rummage through thrift stores and dollar stores for my items – ones that I know could sell for more). For instance, if I find an NFL jersey for $5… I list it for $6, which covers my ebay fees & paypal fees, plus my purchase price. $6 is INCREDIBLY low for a football jersey!

However… you also have to find items that people WANT. Sports items are great… IF the team is doing well or has a strong "die hard" fan base. Children’s clothing also does well (name brands, especially in bigger "lots"), newly released CD’s & movies, some pet items (dog jackets, for example), etc. If you see something you think might sell (that is guaranteed to BE there later)… go look it up on ebay and see if others are getting bids on similar items. I used to just think up as many things to search for as I could and see what did best.

Another big thing is to offer low (or free) shipping. You can either work the shipping into your starting bid price (although that costs more in fees), or just charge people the actual cost to ship. You’ll want to use a shipping calculator through ebay though as most people want to know in advance how much shipping will be, since there’s tons on ebay who will charge $30 to ship a pair of pants or something!

Anyway… other than that… I guess try to have a variety… and if you find something that sells well… buy a BUNCH of it to sell! 🙂 I found Barbie dog jackets on clearance for a dollar one time… bought 35 of them and made several hundred dollars on them! Ya just gotta have an eye for what sells… oh… and make your title catchy and make sure it states what’s being sold.

I have a harley davidson 125 ss a 1976 model. It is in working condition. What could it be worth?

December 18th, 2012 9 comments

It is a LLO PP number plate and we have been told this is also worth money in itself…? Apparently it was built for the army in conjunction with another company. Any light that could be shed on this very much appreciated. Thanks.

An example:
A review:
It was a joint venture with italian engine builder AERMACCHI, when H-D was in bankrupt, owned by AMF

"By the mid-1960’s, Harley was the last of more than 200 American motorcycle makers to survive. But poor family management, a decline in quality and the sudden onslaught of Japanese motorcycles were all pushing it to the brink of bankruptcy. A rescue came in 1969, when the American Machine and Foundry Company purchased Harley for $21 million.
But A.M.F. saved Harley only to run it back into the ground. To its credit, A.M.F. started by pouring millions into the company. By 1973, Harley was turning out 37,000 motorcycles a year and pulling in $122 million in sales. A.M.F. forced the company into overproduction, however, further compromising quality. Harleys, which already had a reputation for leaky engines and creaky temperaments, were now almost untouchable.
In the mid-70’s, A.M.F. went too far when it replaced the Harley name with its own. Apparently unaware of the magnitude of that marketing blunder, which sent sales plummeting, A.M.F. soon began looking to unload the troubled company. In 1981, Vaughn Beals, Harley’s chief executive at the time, pulled together a dozen other company officers who found outside financing and became the new owners".

Where to buy a cheap snowboard & good place to practice?

December 6th, 2012 2 comments

I want to learn to snowboard, but start out slow and around home. Any suggestions on a cheap, basic board and where to practice besides forking over money at a ski resort? I’m from south Chicago, IL. suburbs.

try craigs list or ebay for deals this time of the year, tent sales and websites during the off season months( spring and summer )

If you don’t want to go to a ski area and take lessons, wait for snow(6"+) and find a hill in your area. Find a friend who knows what they are doing to help you out.
