First, what do I order?

Not sure what to choose for your shop? 
FIRST: A must: the Manual. Absolute must whether you’re just beginning to think about it or you’ve been in business for years. (I'm already in business. Will the manual be worth it?)
Then, to broaden your knowledge: General information useful to all shops: 499 Names to your order (this is good not only for the name of your shop, but tag lines, department names, even advertising headlines) and Shop Sizzle and Using All your Space

In the first few years of your business? Choose The Money-Wise Guide to Accepting & Pricing, The Big Book of Window Displays, and Secrets of Successful Resalers
Shopkeepers ready to fine-tune profitability find 10 Simple Ways to Make $10,000 more a year and Resale's BEST Promotions: Celebrate, Generate, Motivate! most helpful. 

Specialty resalers: KidBiz: It's NOT Child's Play and The Resaler's Guide to Furniture & Home Goods have additional, specific to that merchandise information.

What's a PDQ download?

Get your Products Pretty Darn Quick (PDQ), no shipping costs, right in your computer to read or print out! Our downloads are in PDF format. If you don't have Adobe Acrobat Reader, get it here free

PDF files reside in your computer, where you can read it on screen and/or print it out for hands-on reading in your favorite armchair. 

PDQs are personally e-mailed to you as a file attachment. This is NOT automated, so you will NOT get it instantaneously. You will get it PDQ; Pretty Darn Quick, directly from Kate's fingertips to yours, usually within less than 12 hours. 

Please note: Your PDQs are sent only to the e-mail you use on PayPal, so monitor that e-mail for your order. Depending on how you have your security set up, these emails with attached files may end up in your spam filter. PDQs cannot be resent to a second address.
Once you have your PDQs, read them on screen or print them out. Save them to your files immediately; I cannot resend Products that you have lost.

Does the Manual have all the other Products in it?

No, they are all separate sources of information. Think of the Manual as Resale 101, the basics. For “advanced study” in specific areas, make your choices from the many Products designed to suit resalers of every type, size, and strength. The only Product that is a repeat of other Products is our Camera-Ready Consignment Agreement Layout, which is designed for the shop that feels the Manual is beyond their business investment budget. Once they see how helpful this Product is, they invariably buy the Manual!

"I am already in business, and doing well. What would the manual offer me?"

This cartoon is actually a pretty good likeness.Auntie Kate replies:   Many shopkeepers benefit from seeing alternate ways of doing things. While the systems you already have in place may work well enough, it is always an eye-opener to examine other viewpoints. There may be whole areas that you haven't considered, or you may be doing things which, while they worked at one point, don't maximize today's investment in time, effort, and money. We can always be more successful, right?

"I don't want to sell clothes, but hard goods/ furniture/ sporting goods/ whatever. Should I buy the manual?"

This cartoon is actually a pretty good likeness.Auntie Kate replies:   99% of the info in the Manual will apply to ANY merchandise. There will be sections where you will have to mentally substitute (for example, our suggested floor plan shows where to put tops, coats, etc., and you might have to think about dining room sets or ski poles or crystal vases) to suit the business you have in mind, but most everything else is the same, just as your potential customers are.

"I'm confused! There are so many Products for the Professional Resaler.  Is all that in the manual or are your Products simply repeats of the same info?"

This cartoon is actually a pretty good likeness.Auntie Kate replies:   The manual is the Big Picture. All our other Products go into more detail and are designed to take you and/or your staff to the next level of knowledge


How to order

Use the PayPal buttons throughout our site for the fastest and safest way to purchase our Products. 

You DO NOT need a "PayPal account" to order.  
Why PayPal? I wanted a payment service that both you and I could feel comfortable with. Signing up for a PayPal account is totally optional. Signing up really only means that PayPal saves your information for future purchases. If you don’t like that idea, just take the “use credit card” choice and PayPal simply becomes TGtbT's credit card service provider. 

It is not necessary to have a PayPal account to purchase our products even though we use PayPal to process our payments. They accept all types of payment. Please note: If you use an e-check with Pay Pal, your order will be delayed by Pay Pal for days until your check clears. That's their policy, not mine.
How Does the Shopping Cart Work?
While you’re shopping, you will be using a safe and secure PayPal page as your Shopping Cart. The Shopping Cart allows you to purchase multiple
items at the same time without having to enter your information over and over. When you click on the "Add to Cart" button next to the item, you will see your selections on a secure page hosted by PayPal. You can delete any item at any time, so go ahead and create a "wish list" by clicking on things you think you want. When you’re ready to check out, review what you’ve ordered in your Shopping Cart, then click “check out.”

It’s important to verify, if you are a PayPal member, that the email and physical address you have on file with them is current and correct. It’s easy to forget to update these. Your order can only be sent to your address of record, so check that it’s right!
If you're still a bit nervous shopping online, check out the URL of the Shopping Cart page. It's a secure (beginning with https) PayPal URL window.

Don't have/ don't want a PayPal account? You can still order online using just your credit card. PayPal simply becomes TGtbT's credit card service provider.
