What are good techniques for selling on Ebay?

November 10th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’m new to selling on Ebay. I’ve always had luck on Amazon, but they take a big cut of what you earn. There are up sells that are suppose to help you sell your item on Ebay, like "bold" "highlight" "enlarge display image" etc. Which ones really work and help? Am I limiting myself by selling only in the US, it just seems less complicated. I’m not selling all the time for business, just once and awhile, like my older cell phones, or camara’s. Is there anything that I can put in the details box to help sell my item or sound more professional or convincing? I’m actually looking into doing this as a job somday. Please help!

I have been selling on eBay for almost a year now and I can say that I rarely put any of the bold or highlight on my listings. I also do not take PayPal, but if you made your account at eBay after the second week of January then you would have to take PayPal. I have never sold anything out of the US, I think there is too much risk. Just make sure you make accurate and detailed listings. Be descriptive!! Good Luck!

    EBay used to be good but they suck now..They take a big cut for posting, selling and final sales…forget it..it’s a waste of time for a few dollars.

    Hi – I can help you. I sell on eBay. I profit about $3,500 a month and only work about 6 hours a day. eBay has been my full time job for 4 years, and I have sold over 12,000 items. I have some experience.

    Regarding your question on shipping outside of the US;
    Selling your items internationally is not as hard as you might think; it just takes some preparation. When you offer your products to worldwide customers, you expose yourself to millions more shoppers and buyers. Even if international customers don’t win your item, their bids will help drive the price higher.

    If you are confused about how to ship an item internationally, go to the post office and ask a clerk. He will show you the materials you need, how to fill out the forms, and explain the shipping options. Once you have shipped a few international packages, you’ll be a pro.

    If you are looking to do eBay full time as a regular paying job, please contact me and I can help you. Please email me directly at elizabethwells815@yahoo.com
