Wholesale Jewelry and eBay Auctions

Wholesale Jewelry and eBay Auctions

eBay is a great place to find almost any item that
you can imagine. Jewelry wholesale auctions are
quite common on eBay, and in many cases, you
cannot beat the deals that are offered here.
However, there are also many con artists that
operate through eBay, and you have to use caution.

Start by reading all of the fine details about the
jewelry wholesale lots that you are purchasing. If
you still have questions, send those questions to
the seller through eBay’s website. Make sure that
you keep all of your contact with the seller through
the website so that there is documentation.

Check out the person or company that is offering
the jewelry wholesale. Look at their ratings and their
feedback. Has there been any negative feedback?
If so, you may want to reconsider your options and
look into other auctions. If the feedback is all
positive, and the seller’s rating is high, doing
business with them should not be a problem.

Make sure that you are clear about shipment costs
and the shipment time frame, as well as the
payment options offered. Usually, the buyer is
responsible for the shipment costs, and this is
added to the total and paid before the item ships.
In the case of high ticket items, insurance may
be required on the item as well. The seller seldom
pays the shipping costs.

If the jewelry wholesale is a high ticket item, such
as jewelry that is bought in bulk or rare pieces of
expensive jewelry, you should strongly consider
using the escrow service that is recommended by
eBay. If the seller recommends any escrow service
other than the one that eBay recommends, you
might not want to do business with this seller – it
could be a scam.

Beware of sniper’s on eBay! Sniping is against the
rules at eBay, but a large group of people do it
anyway. Sniping is automatic bidding, which is not
against the rules, but the software or service is
instructed to place the highest bid in the last
possible minute of the auction – leaving no time for
anyone else to place a higher bid. Again, this is
against eBay’s rules.

Instead of sniping, place your first bid at the
maximum amount that you are willing to pay for
the jewelry wholesale lot. Each time the bid is
raised, your bid will automatically be raised – until
your limit is reached. This is not sniping, and it is
a perfectly legal way to bid on auctions at eBay. wholesale jewelry

Jewelry Wholesale Supplies

Jewelry Wholesale Supplies by Tony Robinson

No matter what you may need jewelry wholesale supplies for, there are a variety of sources for obtaining them. However, in most cases, you will find the least expensive supplies through online sources. This is due to the fact that you literally have the whole world of jewelry wholesale supply sources at the touch of a button - and those companies are all in competition with each other.

Whether you are looking for stones, crystals, beads, catches, or other supplies and tools, you can find everything you are looking for online - at really great prices. You can order the supplies directly, or request a catalog from hundreds of different suppliers. In many cases, when you place an order, you will be put on the mailing list, and you will automatically receive the catalog periodically without having to ask for it.

You should never pay for the catalog. Avoid sites that ask for payment to receive the catalog, or sites that require you to pay for membership. You can expect, however, to be required to register at the sites that you do business with - at no charge. It is also important to check the refund and exchange policies for each site that you do business with.

If you have any doubts as to the legitimacy of an online business, check them out with the BBB online. If there have been any complaints, the BBB will have a record of it, and that information is available to the public at no charge.

eBay is another option. You can find a wide variety of jewelry wholesale supplies through these auctions, but eBay cannot be depended on as a steady supplier. When you do find supplies that you wish to bid on or purchase through eBay, make sure that you check the seller's rating and feedback before making the bid or purchase!

If shopping online makes you really uncomfortable, there are other ways to find jewelry wholesale supplies. Locate the various companies online, and then call them directly to place your order over the phone, or for instructions for mail orders. You can find the contact information for most companies on the website where it says 'contact us' or 'about us.'

You can also purchase your supplies through discount stores in your area. However, you should be aware that you will not be paying wholesale prices. You will be paying discounted retail prices. Wholesale prices are much cheaper - especially when you make purchases in bulk quantities.
