Selling thousands of high-end electronics, musical instruments, jewelry and even hundreds of vintage Star Wars figurines on eBay, every year, has brought iSold It (ISI) franchisee Chuck Hudson success. Since he first started in the business 8 years ago Hudson has sold millions of dollars of products on eBay and has recently won the franchise chain’s coveted Franchisee of the Year Award twice. His success has prompted a recent move to a larger location in Glendale that allows him to accommodate clients that ask him to handle truckloads of merchandise on a regular basis.
iSold It is a nationwide franchise chain of stores with online sales support for people who want to turn unneeded or unwanted items into cash using eBay. Stores accept items on consignment for seller-customers by providing assistance with photography, listing sales copy, working with buyers, eBay and Pay Pal fees, packing and shipping items sent to buyers and finally issuing a check to the seller. For this service, stores earn a fee on the total winning-bid sale of the item sold. Hudson, as well as most iSold It store owners, also buy items from customers that they sell online.
“Most people would be surprised at what unused or unwanted items they own are worth in eBay auctions,” Hudson said. “Nearly every household and business has something that can be turned into cash when it is properly listed on eBay,” he added.
This service is in demand by people who want the convenience of selling items without doing it themselves and for people who are unconfident with auctioning items online. iSold It has locations in retail store spaces, home-based operations and Depots. ISI is the largest chain of auction sales support stores in the country.
Hudson’s store is one of several ISI locations that have expanded to a Support Depot™, focusing on small businesses, government agencies and targeted consumers who want to sell items online.
In 2012 and 2011, Hudson distinguished himself as the ISI Franchisee of the Year. Hudson’s ISI store has been among the top three in sales since 2008.
The ISI Glendale, AZ store is located at 16700 N. 51 Avenue, Suite 3, (602) 324-5500. For more information and store hours, visit www.isolditstore.com/170.
