Do a garage sale in eBay without an eBay account

Do you find yourself wanting to get rid tons of items from your home but don't have the time to setup a garage sale? Or maybe you don't have a garage to hold one?

You would consider selling it off craigslist but don't have the time to monitor your wares. Or it's quite a hassle to arrange a meeting time and place with your buyer. Not to mention the danger that might arise meeting up with a stranger.

Or you want to sell if via eBay but you don't want or you don't know how to set up an account. It might also take some time to build up a good reputation so that buyers would be comfortable doing business with you.Fortunately, there's a service that can do the selling for you. It's called iSold It!

Here's how it works...

For example, I want to sell this TV rack since it won't fit the new TV that I'm planning to get. I would drop it off in iSold It outlets scattered around the U.S. (there are stores also in Australia and Canada). A representative will then do a research for me to determine its cost. Then they will help me create a description of my item. Once we're done with it, they'll take care of taking photos and posting it in eBay.

Once listed, iSold It will e-mail you the link to your item and you can just watch the e-bay auction take off. They will handle the payment collection and the shipment of your item. Once the transaction is complete, they'll send you a check.

If your item didn't sell, you can pick it up from the store or you can them donate it to charity. So it's a win-win situation. If an iSold It store is near your place, why not try it out?

Dear Paid Blogger, The company you are promoting, iSold It, collected fees for over 900 franchise licenses before they got “caught.” Where are they today?

Only about 250 of those eBay drop-off stores opened before the failing ones started closing. Now there are only about 100 still open and trying to survive by continually remaking themselves in a effort to find what "works." The plush iSold It corporate HQs closed outside LA and moved to a “home-based office” in San Diego. Two of their competitors, NuMarkets and QuikDrop, went out of business and a third, SnappyAuctions, is slowly disappearing.

All these companies have been fighting law suites. iSold It was removed from the Entrepreneur Magazine's Top 100 list because of their shady dealings. You can read the facts about eBay drop-off store scams on www.amitheonlyone.org.

None of the drop-off stores are what they were set up to be and they are not doing well. The owners are struggling to make money and putting their personal savings into them as long as they can. When they fail to produce revenue some owners are selling them for less than they spent to get into them.

Why the high failure rate? The eBay drop-off store concept doesn’t work. By using them you are costing them money, delaying the eventual closing, and supporting the corrupt franchisers. What if the store closes after you drop off your items? It has happened more than once. Some people have gotten their stuff or money back and others haven’t.

Here's a blog that will open your eyes: http://www.franchisepick.com/isold-it-american-dream-or-franchise-nightmare/ read it and tell me you want to be part of a company like this!

P.S. iSold It claims to be the #1 seller on eBay. Ask them to prove it. (They can't, because they aren't.)
