The Auction Arbitrage Secret – A Review

The Auction Arbitrage Secret is not the first e-book to be produced on the subject of arbitrage selling using online auction sites. However, it does differ from some of the other books on the subject by the fact that it is written by someone who practices what he preaches and makes a good living following his own methods. Peter Bruckshaw buys and sells laptops, iPods, jewelry and many other products on eBay and obviously knows what he is writing about.

The term arbitrage was originally used in the financial world but more recently has also become associated with horse race betting on sites such as Betfair. It is now becoming popularly and sometimes incorrectly used to describe buying and selling on sites such as eBay. The basics of true arbitrage are where you get yourself in the position that you cannot possibly lose money on a transaction.

When anyone talks about arbitrage in respect of online auctions what they are talking about is buying at one low price and selling at another higher one. This is not true arbitrage because whenever you buy anything there is always a risk that you may not be able to sell it. However, having said that, the odds are very much in your favor that you will profit from this type of trading.

Peter maintains it is very easy to set up an auction arbitrage business as all that is required is obviously an eBay and PayPal accounts and a sniper software program which will make bids on your behalf just as the auction is closing. You will also require some capital to make your first few purchases. It is possible to purchase suitable arbitrage products both offline and from eBay or other online auction sites. In the Auction Arbitrage Secrets you are given a step by step example showing how he purchased a printer for £45 and then sold it on eBay for £127.

This 79 page e-book is full of useful advice for anyone wishing to operate in the same way as Peter. On the downside I do not believe that the method is true arbitrage or in fact a “secret”. People have been buying items and selling them for more than they paid for them since trading began. It is a well written e-book which is full of helpful advice and information which if followed could help anyone wanting to build a business selling products online.
