Selling on eBay is kind of an art. I'm by no means a power seller or anything of that sort, but eBay has kept me entertained for quite a few years now. I have sold quite a variety of products, mostly used supplies that I figured would be better off in someone else's hands than collecting dust in my home.

The best thing that you can do for your listing is to take the maximum amount of pictures allowable of your product (before the fees for extra slots begin to kick in). Make them good. Reveal exposing details of what you're trying to sell, and collect all angles, because there is nothing that boosts confidence in the buyer more than showing him exactly what he will be purchasing.

For example, I'm selling a laptop right now that has some great offers on it. I've taken pictures of the top with the power adapter, bottom, what the computer would look like if you were to sit in front of it with it switched on, and the dated screens showing the specs. Within 12 hours of posting the item, I have offers within 10% of my asking price, and the reason I haven't taken any of them yet is because I am waiting just a little bit longer to see if anyone will bite, even though I understand that there's a psychological tendency for buyers to low-ball off the listed price.

And that's another tricky part. Being able to price your items optimally takes a bit of practice if you're not used to utilizing the information available to you. But my rule of thumb is to typically compare to similar items of a similar quality on eBay, Amazon, half.com, etc. Think of any websites that could be selling what you're trying to post up, and make sure that you undercut by a reasonable amount. I think a good rule of thumb is that if you're looking for a quick sale, a 15% cut usually does the trick, especially if you are able to incorporate a cheaper shipping method than your competitors. I think this is much easier said than done, as I've sort of mentioned, pricing is kind of a balancing act. Your intuition of the eBay markets will become refined with more practice in just the art of selling.

A third strategy is to stuff as many crucial keywords into your title as humanly possible. For example, when I'm selling a collectible sports card, I include words such as TROPHY, PROMO, COLLECTOR'S, and RARE. I have had people purchase sports cards off of me without a precise intuition of what the valuables were worth; what made a $30 set different from an $800 set due to history and card condition. But aptly describing my products in the titles and in the body description, using bold letters and spacing in a strategic manner which indicates intelligent writing, have given me great success in the world of eBay. Here are more tips for

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-

I have a mp4 player and it is full of picture of items i want to sell on ebay. now my questions are how do i send the picture to ebay please explain how to do this step by step.


1. Plug your mp4 player into your pc2. when the dialog box opens asking you what to do with the device find the one that says "transfer media to pc"3. when the photos are finished transferring over you can find them on your computer4. im guessing your wanting to print out your photos to sell on ebay so take them either on a cd or a jump drive to a fedex Kinkos or similar and print out your photos on nice paper and then upload the digital versions to ebay.
hope this helps!

How is the best way to get started on ebay.?


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!

Mitsu WS-65909 COMES ON AND TURN OFF IMMEDIATLY, ERROR CODE 2-2


Two blink code on this set means Usually one of the two pico fuses that protect the STK-393-110 CONVERGENCE IC is blown--the fuses will need to be tested and the chip and them replaced--


If you have enough skill I have step by step start to finish instructions for this repair in this set---set detects one of the voltages to the Chip is not there and shuts down instantly. I have photos of the chip, fuses and protect resistors this set uses also.


If you want the instructions for free give me a email and I will send them to you for free--if you are able to do this repair yourself you will save a lot of money--you can buy the chip on Ebay for about 14 dollars plus shipping and the same seller sells the pico fuses..............


If you want to attempt this give me a vote here--If you are not able to do it yourself I have suggestions for you about getting the set fixed--I have done hundreds of these sets!

Just reply to this post here.

Let me know what you want to do, I am here to help people
