eBay and Brad Goreski Inspire Style Lovers to Say Goodbye to Closet Commitment by Selling on eBay12:00 EDT Thursday, June 07, 2012 NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- eBay, the world's largest online marketplace and a leading U.S. destination for fashion, marks the launch of a new, simplified selling experience with the introduction of the Chic Squad – a team of sartorially-savvy experts who inspire selling on eBay. Led by celebrity and fashion stylist Brad Goreski, the Chic Squad offers advice on what to sell and how to sell, helping style lovers free up closet space and earn extra cash to fund new fashion finds. “From shoes that are a size too small to a dress that doesn't fit quite right, there are incredible pieces in most wardrobes that have never been worn,” said Brad Goreski. “Regardless of the reason, now is the perfect time to sell on eBay and fund this season's hot new styles.” Simplified Selling Experience eBay's new, simplified selling experience features enhanced functionality that enables users to sell in just four simple steps: 1. SCRIPT: Fill in the information about what you're selling. 2. SHOOT: Snap a photo of your item. 3. PRICE: Set your price and select a shipping option. 4. LIST: List your item. “Our 25 million sellers contribute to the rich, dynamic inventory available on the eBay marketplace, and now it's even easier to consign collections of clothing, shoes, handbags and other accessories," said Jeff Somers, General Manager, eBay Fashion. “Items like denim and designer handbags are always in demand. In fact, women's accessories sell every five seconds on eBay, a pair of shoes sells every 6 seconds and a woman's dress sells every 6 seconds.” Sell Anytime, Anywhere The eBay mobile app allows you to quickly list anytime, anywhere, and each week, there are nearly 2 million mobile listings. To download the free mobile app, visit mobile.ebay.com. The Chic Squad Brad is joined by celebrity and fashion stylist Danielle Nachmani and top eBay fashion sellers from New York, Philadelphia, Dallas, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Fashion enthusiasts can visit a dedicated destination at ebay.com/SellingStyle for selling secrets, tune in to an original webisode series, access tips on Facebook and Twitter, and enlist the Chic Squad's help at selling events in cities coast-to-coast. The Selling Style Studio This summer, the Chic Squad is hitting the road with the Selling Style Studio, an interactive pop-up experience giving people a personalized opportunity to learn how to sell. Attendees are invited to bring a top selling item – like new or gently worn handbags, shoes, sunglasses, denim and dresses – to script, shoot, price and list. A member of the Chic Squad will be on hand to share expert selling advice and help attendees cash in on their fashion. The tour kicks off in New York tomorrow and travels to Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco and more. For more information and to start selling, visit ebay.com/SellingStyle.
