There’s Still Time to Sign Up For EBay and Entrepreneur Workshops at Oswego Public Library

Start getting rid of your unused stuff, and make some extra money. If you have collections of items you know longer care about (do you still have Cabbage Patch dolls?), a designer purse you never use, or tools or parts just sitting idle in your garage, somebody out there wants your unused stuff and will pay money for it. “Sell on EBay, Ship USPS,” is offered at Oswego Public Library’s Public Computing Center on Friday, September 16 from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm. In the workshop, you will learn how to set up an eBay sellers account, list items for sale on eBay, collect payments for sold items, and complete transactions by shipping items to buyers. The workshop is presented by Natalie Dolan, a Customer Relations Coordinator for the US Postal Service who will show participants how to easily get money for things no longer needed.

For small business owners, “Marketing Your Small Business” is offered on Wednesday, September 14 from 10:30 am to noon. Learn how to create a website to increase visibility and advertise your business, set up a PayPal account, and other tips and sites to promote your small business. One-on-one assistance will be available following the workshop by Presenter Matt Corey, who is Learning Libraries Coordinator at North Country Library System.
