Selling regional items internationally has become a booming international trade thanks to auction sites such as eBay and marketplaces such as Amazon. Do you have some limited edition merchandise that you want to make money from? Perhaps you found family heirlooms that you treasure, but you need the cash even more. Or maybe you regularly sell electronics, collectibles, or works of art through drop shipment or directly from your countries to other countries.

Online auctions and marketplaces are a dynamic strategy for those who put in the work to manage their advertising and communicate with potential buyers and past buyers who are back for more of what you’re selling. You can easily do this as a full-time and profitable business.

Despite a few setbacks in certain markets, eBay is the industry leader in online auctions. This is primarily because it lets foreign sellers tap the lucrative North American and European markets, with no middleman other than the service itself As with online marketplaces, the site provides a place for people from one part of the world to sell to those in another part of the world. Marketplaces are diverse but the big leaders are Amazon Marketplace and Alibaba. Especially for business-to-business (B2B) dealings, Alibaba’s massive marketplace helps you hook up with suppliers, manufacturers, and buyers.

But what happens if your advertisement does not give an accurate description of what you are selling? Simply, no one will buy. Even worse, you may sell something and then have a very angry customer return the item and demand a refund.

A few buyers just love to complain, but the great majority of people are good, honest customers who want to buy what you’re selling, and will give you great reviews. Clear English in your listings and communication can help you avoided most problems. Great efforts should go into writing your titles and the gallery photo captions for your auction because these are what entice a bidder to view your merchandise, and to bid and bid until they get it. Your descriptions should be written thoroughly and should also engage the prospective buyer. They must be clear and specific; the good and the bad parts of the item must be thoroughly described. This is sales writing and there’s a way to do it, as well, of course, with the needs for mistake-free English.

We will not only clean up basic language mistakes and use more effective words; we will help you lay out the information in a logical order, and offer suggestions for how you can avoid potential problems. And we can also assist with your customer communications. You’ll be dealing with primarily native speakers and many of them may use slang or may be expressing anticipation or need in their words.

Can you pick up on those queues? We can help you make sense of it. Send us any communication and reply and we’ll confirm them and fix them up for you.

Online auctions are dynamic and competitive. We give you an essential edge in the global market.

ONLINE MARKETPLACES & AUCTIONSSelling from Taiwan to the World

Name:Alan Wang (52)
Company:Private sector
Background:Mr. Wang has been a passionate collector of Chinese teapots and utensils. He has built a huge collection from different dynasties. But there’s simply not enough room in his family’s Taiwan apartment. His aging mother is moving in and Mr. Wang has to liquidate his collection. Instead of just selling to a local deal for a low price, he checks eBay and find many similar items selling for hundreds, even thousands, of US dollars. He has basic English and writes out the details to sell a couple of items but immediately he starts receiving questions about “authenticity”, “origins”, “history”. He generally understands them but can’t answer them. He also realizes it would be easier if he simply had good descriptions to start with. He wants someone to provide him accurate English editing services to increase the chances that the descriptions will compel buyers to bid for the item, and reduce all these difficult questions from interested, but suspicious, buyers.
