I need assistance with my eBay store, primarily with processing orders and handling customer service.
I mostly sell UPC codes, so for the order processing, this is what would be involved: When an order is placed, check the order to see how many UPC codes were ordered. Then, copy that number of UPC codes from a spreadsheet filled with UPC codes that I will provide (some excel knowledge will be helpful here) and paste the codes into a new file that can be emailed to the customer. Save the new file using the buyer's username as the file title, then send it to the buyer's email address (which can be found using the order information) using an email account and pre-written email that I will provide. Then, mark the order as shipped through the eBay account and send the buyer a quick eBay message to say that the order has been shipped and tell them what email address it has been sent to. I will provide the messages to be used. Some buyers may also request barcode images along with their UPC codes, so in those cases you will have to generate the using a website that I will provide. The entire process should only take about a minute, but it may take a little longer if the barcode images are requested.
I also need assistance with the customer support for the UPC code orders. I sell other products on eBay, but you do not have to worry about them. Only pay attention to the messages received if they are about UPC code orders. If the buyer has a question about UPC codes, I will need you to answer it. I will be available to assist with answers that you do not know, but over time, I would hope that you can become familiar enough with the product to be able to answer all the questions yourself. The questions are usually quite simple, so it should not be hard to learn the answers to the majority of them. Also, some of the messages relating to UPC code orders will also be asking for the codes to be sent to a specific email address or for the barcode images to be included, and I will expect you to be able to take those questions into account when processing the orders.
As I mentioned before, the processing for each order should take about one minute, and sometimes a little longer if the barcode images are needed. Since you will need to process between twenty and forty of these orders each day as well as respond to messages about them, you can expect to work for a total of about an hour each day. However, because handling the orders quickly and responding to messages quickly is important, you will need to check the ebay account frequently in order to process orders and respond to messages. This means that, while you might work for a total of an hour each day, that work might be for example split up into four 15 minute sessions where some orders are processed and some messages from buyers are answered.
This is a long term project. I will continue needing assistance for many months or even years to come. In addition, if I am impressed with the quality of work that you provide, I may expand your responsibilities and adjust the pay accordingly.
Some skills that will be needed are good english skills as well as some knowledge of Microsoft Excel (or Open Office or some alternative that can use spreadsheets). A basic knowledge of how eBay works such as navigating the site to respond to messages and being able to contact buyers and mark orders as shipped will also be required.
