Need E-Bay Selling Tips

Post by Ggultra2764 on Mon 28 Jun 2010 - 22:35

I'm considering the possibility of setting up my E-Bay account so I can sell some of my anime DVDs and I wanted advice from anyone who has had experience selling on E-Bay like any selling fees, account setup, etc...

Can anyone with selling experience on E-Bay please help me out?

Depends on what real life and the Internet implore me to do.

I have TONS of experience on ebay! I've been buying and selling stuff on there with my sister and my mom for over 5 years now.

If you are bidding on something, new people always tend to bid on something and keep bidding, making the price go higher and higher, even if there are 5 days left on the item. They make it 5 times the price they cold have paid because they jack up the price. What I have found to be the best way to bid, is to watch the item and wait for the time to almost run out, bid on the item with less than 5 minutes to go, so the price doesn't go up that much, if it isn't a sought after item.

In terms of selling things, try ebay half. You don't have to give ebay some of the money if you use that. You buy the item instead of bidding. Say if you have a book you would list the condition, and say if it has any wear and tear. Then you would check and see the highest the book is going for and list the price lower than that, for it to sell.

If you're selling on ebay you have to give ebay a small percentage for the listing, but if you re-list it, you don't have to give them anything again. You can either choose for people to bid on it, buy now, or both.

When you sell something, make sure to get back to people if they have any questions and send their item out on time, so you get a good review, so it's likely they'll go back to you to buy something else.

If you are buying something make sure to look at the seller's score. If they sold over 1,500 items and their score is over a 90% I would say they were a good seller for the most part. If they have a low score and haven't sold that many items, don't buy from them, and make sure to look at what people say about the person before hand in the comment section.

Ebay is a lot of fun to use and browse on, a lot of things I wear and use came from ebay.

Happy bidding! ^_^

Okay, just set up a few auctions for stuff from my collection. If anyone here's from the U.S. and has a Paypal account, then you can bid if you want to (if you seriously want this stuff).
