This week, we came across a lot of great content about selling on eBay. It can be a challenging ecosystem of buyers and sellers, but if you do it right, your eBay business can be incredibly lucrative. Some merchants start on eBay and never need to expand.

In either case, you need a little help. We think these articles will do it for you.
IRCE 2015 is just around the corner, June 2-5 in Chicago to be exact. We’re gearing up for the event and we’re excited!
The Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibit is one of the biggest retail events in the country, featuring more than 200 speakers and an exhibition with over 600 companies. This is a big time event if you’re a retailer, e-tailer, distributor, or basically anyone who has a reason to read this blog.

Today’s consumers are specific about what they want, and they will take the time to find it.
Retailers have an opportunity to capitalize on this attitude shift. If you don’t capitalize on that opportunity–to get the most out of the back-to-school market–you’re missing out.
