eBay Seller Facebook Group Reaches 22,000 Global Members - Largest on Facebook!
All I can say is, "wow!" If you had told me back in 2008 when I started the Facebook group "Stay at Home Moms Selling on eBay" that 8 years later membership would reach 22,000 members worldwide, I would not have believed it. But here we are, 22,000 strong and still growing every day.
As I look at this milestone with great pride, I first have to thank from the bottom of my hear our 9 moderators who give of their time to help keep the group professional, on track, and drama-free. This group could not have grown to this size without the daily dedication of these sellers. The moderators are in all time zones across the USA, and Andrea, the 'night watchman" is in Australia. A shout out and big thank you to the dedicated moderators!

A heartfelt thank you to all the members who make the group great by sharing their finds, advice, and helping other members with questions, problems, and all kinds of eBay situations. It is your giving spirit, cooperation, and professional demeanor that keeps our eBay community running smoothly so that we can be the not only the biggest but the best free resource for eBay sellers worldwide. You all have helped keep the group stay focused, spam-free, educational, and professional. Bravo!
If you are not a member of the group, come join us here! A few things we have to offer:
A huge resource file with hundreds of sites for identification, education, and authenticating items you want to sell on eBay.
Weekly thread called Money Making Mondays where sellers post their sales - including where they found the item, how much they paid for it, and how much it sold for. This is the proof that eBay works. There are 195 of these weekly threads going back to 2012 with over 20,000 posts so sellers can learn from one another.
Member's Store Directory where sellers can post their store names so that we can support each other in our eBay efforts.
Consignment Resources - a standard consignment agreement and tip sheet for those who want to venture into consignment selling.
Connect with other sellers both virtually and in person. Running a home business can be isolating. You can find other sellers who understand what your day is like. You may even find other sellers in your community that you can connect with locally.
I take great pride in this Facebook group and how we have evolved over the years into a resource to help sellers learn and grow in their businesses. We have built an amazing community of diverse eBay sellers that reaches all around the globe. Thanks to all of you for your contributions! See you on Facebook!
