    My sister goes away camping quite alot and a few weekends ago they got talking to a couple who are titanium powersellers on ebay so she got there details i rang him up the other day and he said he would meet me tomorrow.I have fully checked him out and he has over 75,000 feedback with only 15 negative feedback can you believe that? He is doing over 25,000 a month just on ebay and all he does is mail order from his home.He did have a business on the high street but because of all the high fees he stopped doing it and just does ebay and his own website and he lives in my home town

    I have already written down lots of questions just wondered if anybody else could think of anything i could put to him

    Blimey! He is doing 25,000 sales a month? What sort of stuff does he sell?

    I'd have loads of questions, I'm always interested in why people pick their chosen field not that that's much help to you.

    I'm fairly sure Rick is referring to turnover not items sold.

    I think it should be £25,000 a month. 25,000 items a month, and im sure he'd have alot more feedback.

    EDIT: Great minds think alike, Selvi :thumbup:

    How about how he goes and packs and sends them out or does he use fulfilment ?

    What process he does on an order Or his usual day routine what he does and in order.

    Get an idea how he lives his eBay working life :)

    Hmmm. 25,000 people a month are seeing his username.. I'm sure he won't mind a few more. :confused: I'm not looking to hack his account, just curious to see his feedback and items.

    I would be interested about his backoffice stuff, the software he is using behind the scenes etc.

    It would be interesting about what profits hes making. He might be a busy fool. Turnover is vanity while profit is sanity :)

    The difference is, you know he is doing very well and may start trying to source his best selling lines.

    Making his username public would be a severe breach of trust - I wouldn't dream of outing any of my own business contacts, I'd be in fear for my life!!
