This is it – the last Questions & Answers post of the year! I’ll be taking a break from writing starting next week (after the winners of my readers’ contest are announced) and will return on the 5th January (hopefully at least!).
I’m sure over the next 3 weeks I will receive tons of new questions from you so we’ll most likely start the new year with a MASSIVE Q&A post!
But for now, let’s cover some of the questions you sent in over the last 2 weeks:
- Where to get stock Blu-Ray images?

- How to outsource your eBay tasks?
- Best way to import giftware from China?
- Do prices on Alibaba fluctuate based on season?
- Can I use a Polish eBay account to sell on eBay UK?
- What are your thoughts on using sourcing agents in China?
- How to work with 3 eBay accounts at the same time from just one PC?

- Do I have to pay import tax on small shipments from China?
- How does Ali Express’ escrow service work?
Let’s get started!
You said to use Amazon for stock images of Blu-ray film covers, which is fine, but how are you lifting them – simply right click, copy then paste? Or are you saving the image first on to a computer and then loading it up to a template on turbo lister or directly to an eBay auction template?
Yes, what you do is you go to the Amazon listing for the Blu-ray you’re interested in; right click; open image in a new tab (this may differ slightly based on what browser you’re using) and simply download that image to your computer.
Mind you, these will usually be very large, high resolution images so before you upload it to your hosting account, you want to re-size it to something more suitable which you can do by simply following the steps in my image editing guide.
If you want to upload these images directly to eBay (gallery images), you make them square, 1600 x 1600 pixels IF the Amazon image is larger than that. If it’s smaller, make it smaller but still use square proportions, at least for the main gallery image. [Read more…]
