If you sell on eBay, or if you believe you would like to be an eBay 
seller, the following convention agenda details are for you.

We will be conducting two very different types of eBay information 
sessions this year.  The first one, scheduled for 1:00 p.m. on 
Sunday, July 3, in Wekiwa 7, deals exclusively with use of the eBay 
web site.  If you're brand new to eBay, or if you've found using the 
web site difficult, this is the session for you.  Those of you who 
are comfortable with the web site and are looking for business tips 
and winning strategies should plan to attend one of the three 
gatherings later in the week instead.

The Sunday program is intended to provide you with hands-on 
experience.  By the end of the afternoon, you will have walked 
through the process of preparing a listing, with the help of eBay 
Education Specialists, up to the point of pressing the button to make 
it go live on eBay.

We have space for 30 participants, and some preparation on your part 
is required, so we are requesting that you preregister by email to 
<blocked::mailto:mgabias at nfb.org>mgabias at nfb.org no later than June 25.

Wireless computer access will be provided, but those registering for 
this session will need to bring their own wireless enabled 
computer.  This can be a laptop or netbook.  Notetakers such as the 
Braille Note, Braille Sense, or Pac Mate will not work effectively on eBay.

In your registration request, we will need to know your name, 
telephone number (a cell phone number that you will be using in 
Orlando would be most helpful), the type of access software you will 
be using and its version number (Jaws 10, WindowEyes 7,Apple 
VoiceOver, etc.)  We will also want to know what Internet browser you 
prefer and the release of that software you are using so that we can 
offer you targeted help.

We ask that you visit 
and register as a buyer, a seller, and a PayPal user.  If you have 
registered successfully with eBay, please let us know that in your 
email concerning the Sunday seminar.  Members of the eBay team will 
be available to help anyone attending the Sunday seminar to complete 
eBay registrations ahead of the convention, provided your request for 
assistance reaches us by June 25.  Again, registering for the seminar 
and registering as a buyer and seller on eBay are different 
processes.  You will need to do both to participate fully in the 
Sunday seminar.

The two hour session on Monday, with repeated sessions on Tuesday, 
and Wednesday are intended to help you find answers to your questions 
about what to sell, how to sell, whether to use an auction or fixed 
price format, how to make your listings stand out, and any other 
strategic questions about how to be successful as an eBay seller.  No 
preregistration is required.  Successful blind eBay sellers, along 
with members of the eBay team, will be available to share their 
experiences and answer your questions.

If you have questions about either seminar, or if you wish to 
register, please email Mary Ellen Gabias at 
<blocked::mailto:mgabias at nfb.org>mgabias at nfb.org.
