Selling on eBay with Shiply

Selling on eBay is one of the many ways I make money online. I have had an online eBay shop since the kiddies were born over 4 years ago. It has been kept me quite busy for years in a little way. I sell both pre loved items and brand new items on there and I make quite a few hundreds every few months. It is a great way of decluttering my home and making money by the side. A win-win!

However, having an eBay store can be time consuming especially when it comes to listing your items for sale. Thankfully, eBay has simplified this process, and it is now only a few clicks to list items on the eBay app. In the early days, listing items on eBay took forever and it was one of those jobs I never looked forward to. But these days, I am usually one listing 10 items or more (depending on how quickly I move) in 30 minutes.

 

Shiply – The Transport Marketplace

If you buy or sell items on eBay, then you will know all about the troubles of dealing with large items that can’t go in the regular post. I have had my own fair dealings with large items that I have had to sell as collection only because I am unable to post them. Items like a baby bath stand, car seats, bicycles, baby walkers and many more.

Listing an item as a collection only automatically reduces the chances of the item selling. Only people who are nearby or able to travel to you would be interested. Which means you could have your collection only items listed for a very long time without any sort of interest. So you cam imagine my excitement to discover Shiply. For those who have never heard of Shiply, it is a large item courier service used by millions of people to ship large/bulky items.

How It Works

Using the Shiply service is quite easy, all you have to do is complete a form online and wait for the quotes to come via email. It is fast, easy and very affordable since Shiply’s delivery companies are already making similar trips. The quotes are usually up to 75% cheaper than standard rates, which is amazing for us eBay sellers. I like the fact that I can now get my large and bulky items delivered to my customers through Shiply. You can send pretty much anything legal through this courier service, even cars. It is the one of most convenient services available today.

Shiply is a blessing to business owners, especially eBay sellers that sell various items for a living. The convenience of it all ticks all boxes for me. I no longer have to list items as collection only with this amazing courier service. It has definitely made my life a lot easier.

The Books the Kids are Reading

Hey peeps! I hope everyone enjoyed the bank holiday. I know I did. Although it was cold and wet outside, I made the most of the quiet time. We have been doing a lot of reading in the last few days. The kids love reading books, and I encourage them to read even more. They have eBooks downloaded on their Leapfrogs, but they actually prefer reading physical books. Here are some of their favourite books at the moment.

The Tickle Book

The kids love reading this Tickle Book. They have had the book for months now and they still laugh every time I read it to them. I can see why this book is a hit with them. I do find it very funny too

The Tickle Book is written by Ian Whybrow and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. This colourful funny board book is great for children between the ages of 3 – 5 years old. It is full of fun rhymes and silly scenarios. We got ours for £8.99.

The Beginner’s Bible

The Beginner’s Bible by Catherine DeVries is another hit in our house. My twins love reading the bible stories in this book, and as a believer, I am thrilled they enjoy reading their bible.

This bible uses simple text and bright images to grab children’s attention. It is great for children between the ages of 2 – 5 years old. You can grab a copy online for £10.99.

Let’s make a cake

Let’s make a cake is one of the newest book in our kiddies bookshelf. My daughter enjoys reading this book in her preschool so I had to find it. After searching online for days, I finally stumbled on a preloved copy on eBay for £2.29.

Let’s make a cake by Wendy Body and illustrated by Adrienne Geoghegan is a great book for any child learning to read. This is one book my kiddies can actually read correctly by themselves. It is an amazing first reading book.

 

 

Peppa’s Easter Egg Hunt

This is another favourite with the kids. Peppa’s Easter Egg Hunt is interesting book for Peppa Pig’s fans. It can serve as a fantastic Easter present instead of the good old Easter egg gift.

We got this Peppa Pig book for £3.74 on Amazon. It is ideal for children between the ages of 2 – 5 years old.

Thanks for reading.

Natural Hair Transition with SheaMoisture

If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for some time, you would know all about my natural hair transition. I decided to go natural some months ago but I didn’t want to down the big chop route. So I had to grow out natural hair, while cutting off the dead hair tips gradually. It took a while but I am happy to say my hair is now fully natural.

I would be lying if I said growing my hair natural was a walk in the park. It wasn’t. Getting my hair to this stage has not been easy. It took a lot of hard work and determination to get here. And my hair is still a work in progress.

I felt like giving up so many times along the way. My hair is a 4C and it is very coarse, so it is hard to manage. However, but I am happy I didn’t. I am very confident with my hair now. I am show it off proudly and it is just growing like weed, which is amazing.

In my transition, I have used so many hair products. A few of them I won’t use again and many I would continue using. I recently came across the SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl and Shine Range. This range is great for my thick hair. I am loving it so far.

I am a huge fan of the SheaMoisture brand. If you scroll through my natural hair transition posts, you would see me raving about 1 SheaMoisture range or the other. The products are great for natural hair and I believe they have helped in my hair growth. This Coconut & Hibiscus Curl and Shine range is no exception. I love all the products in this range, especially the SheaMoisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie, which I have used before. The products keep my hair clean and moisturised. I will be shopping this range in future.

You can get this products in Boots stores, Amazon, eBay and other beauty stores.
