Hi,

I'm sure you can find some pointers on eBay itself, but I will give my 2 cents for what it's worth.

1) Choose a username and GOOD password when you sign up.

2) Get a PayPal account and get it verified. Paypal is the easiest and most used form of buying and selling.

3) Know your products if you are selling. Give accurate and complete descriptions. Be honest about them too.

4) Ask questions if you are buying and are not sure of something.

5) Use GOOD photos whenver possible. Don't use grainy, low resolution pictures.

6) Give feedback. That is how you are "rated" in the eBay world. If someone only has a Feedback rating of under 90%, I would be cautious. Of course you can view anyones feedback and see comments.

I hope that gives you a start. Happy eBaying.

Thanks for using Fixya.

PS. You can look at my figures if you wish. I use the same username as I use here.
PPS. Please consider rating this solution as this is the way we are rated on Fixya. Thanks!

Tip

How to succesfully sell things on eBay


1. Create and Ebay account if not already done so.

2. Do a simple search for the item you wish to sell. This is to get an idea on prices similar items are selling for.

3. Click on sell in the upper right hand corner, then click start selling

4. Enter keywords about your item (up to 3) and then select one or more catagories to list in. (the more catagories, the more popularity and more chance to sell, but don't just list in a category it doesn't belong in just to get more popularity.)

5. Fill out the form for selling the thing.
5a. Price
-Starting- this is the price that the auction starts at, if someone bids, it will sell for no lower than this.

-Reserve - This will allow you to set you starting bid as low as you want and have it sell for no lower than the reserve. (keep in mind this may drive away some people)

-Buy it now - This is the price that you can give to buyers if they simply want to buy and don't want to auction.

6. Upload pictures. Pictures are important. Sometimes this may make the difference between selling and not selling. I always try to use pictures of the actual product. It just lets buyers know what they are actually getting.

7. Use the best description you can, the more details there are, the more attractive it is to the buyer. DON'T repeat the same thing over and over just to get more words.

8. Pick a good shipping method, and what I have found out the best way to do it is to go to a shipping place, have it packaged up, and have them tell you how much it will be to ship. Tha way you will have no surprise shipping costs. You can also always refund the extra pice for shipping if you over-estimate.

9. List the item. eBay is pretty good at helping you the rest of the way.

I hope you enjoy selling things on ebay and soon you will become a master. Pretty soon, you'll be earning yourself stars.

How to start to sell on ebay


If you are in beginning then you have to create a account on PayPal first.This is how you get paid, once you are selling on eBay. It is the first step. They will ask for your savings or checking account, for their safety. Once you are selling on eBay, you will acquire eBay fees and they want to make sure they will get paid, in case you have no funds left in your PayPal account. PayPal is completely safe. PayPal will deposit 2 small deposits into your savings or checking account to verify this is you. Once those amounts hit your account, you can verify.Then go eBay site and Register at Ebay.
It is completely free, and they will prompt you through the easy process. (Relax, I am not going to have you list anything, simply sign up for now. I know how overwhelming new things can be, I have been there.)Now check inside eBay ee what others are selling, you can also visit the forums. Spend some time getting familiar with the site. Also feel free to buy something. It is very simple to buy. This will also allow you to receive feedback, which will help once you go to sell!

remember-
Feel free to scroll down and read my article on how to sell on eBay.

I think I'm being scammed by Deborah Gruber. She's using Ebay as her platform to guarantee the protection of this vehicle. I have an item # that Ebay sent me and I'm starting to think it's a fraudulent...


Ebay is one site that is frequently "phished"...
meaning that scammers will build a website or an e-mail that looks exactly like a bank, or Ebay, or whatever, and hoping that they'll trick you into giving them private information (like your credit card number).

The best protection for you is to make sure that, when you're on a site like Ebay, the address in the address bar (at the top of your browser) says, "https://" (such as, "https://www.ebay.com").

The "s" at the end of "http" means it's a secure site... almost impossible for scammers and "phishers" to counterfeit.

For now, your best recourse is to contact Ebay directly. You can access their Security and Protection division here. (Yes, this is a secure "https" site!) They should be able to help you, and - if you are being scammed - they know how to deal with Deborah.

Good luck to you!
