Hello Chicagoland eBay Members,

eBay has opened this event up so more members can attend.  Please RSVP now if you have not already done so.  Sorry, we do not have a wait list and we cannot accommodate walk-ins.

This is a first time event you will not want to miss. The Chicagoland eBay Sellers want to give a huge welcome to our Sponsor eBay Inc. We want to thank eBay for choosing Chicago as one of their locations for this event.

SAVE THE DATE! LIMITED SPACE! RSVP TODAY!

 We’re partnering with eBay to bring a special Meetup experience to our group. Come hear from eBay experts to find out the latest and greatest strategies, ideas, and best practices you need to accelerate your business! There will be plenty of networking and question and answer opportunities not only with eBay VIP's but with other sellers from our group.

More details to come regarding the special guests and topics to be discussed that evening. I can guarantee this will be an informative evening that you do not want to miss! Be sure to sign up right away, 

This event is sponsored by eBay and space is limited.  So reserve now!

eBay will be providing appetizers (not dinner) and beverages, and one drink ticket per person for an "adult beverage" 

Due to limited seating, each member is allowed only one guest. Please be sure to sign up early and reserve your spot. As a courtesy to us and our sponsor, we are sorry but walk-ins will not be allowed the night of the event.

To avoid discomfort and encourage openness, no audio or photographic recording is permitted at these eBay meetings other than by eBay and organizers of this group.

This is an adult networking and business event, please no children. 


We look forward to seeing all of you at this special event.

To your Success,

Rich , Nila & Bev

    This was my first time at a meet up and I thought it was excellent! I am jazzed for getting ready for the holiday season. Thank you for the great food and beverages and the wealth of information that Rich and the eBay staff provided during the presentation. Can't wait until next months meeting. Ps I met a lot of new eBay friends like Howard and D and jennifer too. I so enjoyed talking ebay shop with all of my new friends.

    I Am kind of new seller in eBay and have had 100% positive (213) feedbacks from my buyers however about a quarter of my buyers have not gave me any feedback
    What can I do to ensure to receive feedback from buyer?
    I even tried contacting buyers through eBay 3 weeks after sale to see if they are happy with their purchase but it takes a lot of time and effort to do that and search through my sales to see who left or did not left feedback

    September 11, 2013

    • Judy W.

      I also but a note into my packages...it helps but we will never get 100% I think

      The best thing to concentrate on is giving excellent customer service. Not every buyer will leave feedback so don't worry about that. Make sure to leave feedback for them as soon as they pay - that will also encourage them to leave feedback for you since you were nice to them.

    Thanks to Rich, Niok and Bev for putting this together - went off without a hitch. Thanks to Ebay for spending time and money to do this. Great tidbits for any seller - new or experienced. Great event. So much to do....

    Great meeting. eBay brought the A-Team to share selling tips and answer eBay questions. Great presentation by Jeff Terrell. So glad that such a wide spectrum of sellers from complete newbies to seasoned sellers were able to learn from the panel and from each other. I was especially glad that all of the panel members were gracious enough to stay after the program officially ended to answer individual questions and pass out business cards with contact info for follow-ups. Nice job eBay! And giant kudos to Rich, Nila and Bev for all the hard work they did coordinating with eBay for this special event.

  • Vicki D.

    I hope to get a chance to meet other sellers next time. When can we sign up to see Griff? He's always fun & informative.

    September 12, 2013

  • Mark Le V.

    Very positive experience.

    It was a great Meetup. Nice to see so many new faces. eBay brought some very knowledgeable employees that did a great job answering questions. Jeff Terrell ran the meeting very smoothly with ease and confidence. The eBay team consisted of representatives from the Shipping Team, Customer Support and and Seller Protection. It is very encouraging to see, in action, that eBay is supporting its sellers.

    Would've liked to see more/better food since we were there during dinner hours of 5:30-9:00.

    It was my first meetup and I have to say I was just blown away by how nicely this was organized. eBay speakers did an excellent job answering the questions. Appetizers were good and open bar. Being an eBay seller and a business owner is a learning experience. It is good to know that someone got your back. Way to go Rich, Bev and Nila. Kudos to you. Keep this coming. I will be there on October 9th

    A wonderful job by Rich, Nila and Bev! Thank you for a great event and for allowing my husband and I to spend our wedding anniversary with you and Ebay! haha.. Seriously, it was very informative, and the Ebay reps very helpful. Was great to see the regulars and new faces at the meeting!

    September 11, 2013

  • Vicki D.

    There wasn't any real mingling going on.

  • Bill Y.

    Excellent learning and networking experience. Great job!

    September 11, 2013

  • Steve B.

    Good fun being with like minded friends. Ebay should have mentioned that the agenda would have been geared more towards the new seller. Perhaps the more experienced sellers would have opted out so that the newer sellers could have made the meetup. Rich and Nila were great and went far and above their duty.

  • Jesus H.

    Hello yes!!! The meetup was a wonderful experience since iam knew to ebay! Its always good to hear from others that have more experience and better ideas in the field. It really gives and opens up my mind to better ideas so I could be a more successful person. I hope to be at other meet-up to learn and talk to more successful people thank you!!!

    September 11, 2013

  • Christy L.

    My work schedule has changed and I will not be able to go after all. Hopefully a wait listed person can attend instead. I'll miss seeing you all - have fun!

    • Snehal R.

      Hi Christy,

      September 10, 2013

    • Snehal R.

      Sorry, I hit enter too fast... I was going to ask if I can use your spot. I saw that you are not able to attend tomorrow. How do we get that going?

      September 10, 2013

  • Snehal R.

    Is there 1 more spot open? I would like to invite my brother who is also an eBayer to join us. Can anyone let me know on this?

    September 10, 2013

  • Nancy S.

    Can anyone tell me if I can bring someone with me, if I can do I need an additional ticket?

    September 10, 2013

  • Geraldine R.

    Rich, Is there any chance that you can also add me as a guest to this event? If not I understand.

    How can I add 1 guest - it is only allowing me option "yes" or "no". ?

    September 9, 2013

  • Ali W.

    IF THERE IS A CANCELLATION, PLEASE EMAIL ME..THANKS

    September 9, 2013

    • Eric B.

      I can't attend and I was RSVP, I just changed my status

      September 9, 2013

  • Kevin G.

    During that period I had 724 transactions (not items sold, but actual transactions) of those 724, 4 of people left me low DSR's on "Shipping Time" That's .55% of my total transactions in a 90 day period. Having .55% of my total transactions in a 30 DAY period let alone a 90 DAY period as eBay uses directly effect my bottom line is ABSURD. There is no other business or service on the face of the planet that would consider .55% of total business for ANY period as indicative of performance or "customer service" This DSR policy in no way benefits the SELLER OR BUYER only eBay benefits, as everything is anonymous, I have no ability to correct whatever problem I may be having, so it's not like I can stop it from happening again! Now, for some sellers who sell e few items a month, it will be obvious what the problem is, but for someone like me who sells hundreds of items a month, I am powerless to correct my problem, as I do not even know what it is.

    August 21, 2013

    • Geraldine R.

      Kevin, You absolutely took all of the words right out of my mouth. I feel like I am completely alone in this. I am outraged at what Ebay has done to my business with such anonymous rating numbers and the restriction that we do not ask the seller to be mind full that all 5's are really important to our ability to stay in business. Ebay customer service people just keep saying that they appreciate my understanding and I keep telling them that I don't understand unless they are just trying to put me out of business.

      September 9, 2013

  • Laurie Groll S.

    I will be there. Looking forward to it.

    September 9, 2013

  • Jacobson H.

    I am confused. . . I was JUST somehow invited but now it is closed?? That is okay, I'm sure there will be another one, and the only person who I can imagine would actually attend as a plus one with me would be busy or another is out of town so... thanks though.

    September 4, 2013

  • Jennifer C.

    Hello - I am very interested in attending this event. I have been selling on eBay for almost 10 years. By any chance, is there a wait list just in case anyone cancels or does not bring a guest? Please let me know! Thank you!
    Jennifer

    August 29, 2013

  • Col John Chrusciel J.

    Looking Forward to This

    August 29, 2013

  • Vicki D.

    Thanks for confirming me. I'm not sure if I get a plus 1. If I do, it would be Brent McClintock. Please let me know if that is sufficient notice.

    August 29, 2013

  • Judy C.

    Rich, you're doing a great job of keeping this together. Disregard complaints.

    1 · August 29, 2013

  • Rich

    I know it would be helpful for members to give us the guests name when they RSVP yes. However, the MeetUp site does not give that option and we have NO way to control that.
    We are doing our best to get as many members in as possible to this event.
    Our venue has informed us of strict fire capacity codes. We are requiring a name tag for entry, since walk-ins will not be allowed.

    If you cannot make this event and have rsvp'd yes, please revise your rsvp to no to make room for other guests that really want to attend.

    August 29, 2013

  • Ann C.

    My +1 is Lori Nahrwold

    1 · August 29, 2013

  • Sharon S.

    My +1 is Sandy Stricker.
    It would be helpful if you posted where or how to supply the guest's name. Thanks!

    August 28, 2013

  • Steve B.

    Rich , Nila or Bev
    Where do you add your guests name? I want to bring my wife Jill and can not find where to add her name for the name badge. Thanks.

    August 28, 2013

  • Lisa H.

    I got the last spot and wanted to make sure I can still bring a guest as it never gave me the +1 option.

    August 28, 2013

  • Laura & Richard R.

    Both of our names are listed in the reservation but are still being asked for the +1. Either Rich or Laura is the +1.

    August 28, 2013

  • Lori N.

    Please put me on the waiting list, I am just now seeing this. Thank you

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
