I had an out-of-state client who wanted to sell high-end antiques on eBay. However, she wanted to remain anonymous.
Client: Can you help me sell these items on eBay without customers knowing who I am?
Me: Absolutely. We don’t have to mention your name or the business name.
Client: Great. But I can’t ship the items.
Me: Ok, so maybe we can have customers do a local pickup from your warehouse?
Client: No, that won’t work. I don’t want customers to know my business sold them the items.
Me: Ok, so we can’t ship the items. And they can’t pickup from your store or warehouse. What do you suggest?
Client: I don’t know. If we can’t send them and they can’t pick them up, what are our options?
Me: A middleman who swears a blood oath not to reveal your identity.
