					How eBay Consignment Centers Work.
 You might not ever have heard of eBay consignment centers 鈥?don't worry, most
people haven't, as they're a relatively new concept. The idea is that you drop off
anything you want sold, and then the consignment center will sell it for you and share
the profits.
 You Can Sell at Consignment Centers.
 Just find something to sell and take it to a consignment center 鈥?they'll sell it for
you on eBay, handling all the listing, description and shipping.
 You do, however, give up some profit when you sell through a consignment center,
not to mention losing all control over your auctions 鈥?and who's to say that you
couldn't sell it better than they can? The chances are they will only give you a fraction
of the item's real value, to the point where you might as well have just taken it to the
pawn shop.
 You Can Be a Consignment Center.
 A better option is to be a consignment center for the non-eBay-using public in your
area. After you've been selling things on eBay for a while and you've told a few
people about it, someday a friend will walk up to you and say 鈥淗 ey, could you sell
this on eBay for me?鈥?Give it a try 鈥?if you like doing it, then why not start up
your own consignment center business?
 Put an ad like this in your local newspaper or anywhere else you think is appropriate:
 鈥淐 reate Space and Get Money For Doing It! How would you like someone to
come and clean out the old stuff in your house that's taking up all your space, and then
give you cash for the lot? I am currently looking for things to sell on eBay and I can
do this for you. Call me on [your number].鈥?
 Go round to a few people's houses and take some things that you think are sellable,
giving the items' owners a sensible amount for them 鈥?not too much, since they
don't know how much they're worth. It's best to try to take things that are part of a set
or collection, so you can sell lots of the same kinds of items. You're in a strong
position: why would they so no when you're offering them money for things that, to
them, are rubbish?
 The only requirement to be successful with this is that you need to know what you're
doing, and be able to spot a high-value item when you see one, regardless of what it
might be. It's also worth opening a new account to sell items you get from other
people. You can't guarantee quality as well, and your regular account should only be
used to sell the one kind of item that you decided you're an expert in.
 One thing many sellers don't realise when they sell items is that they need to change
their strategy depending on what season it is 鈥?things sell for different prices
depending on the time of year.
