Got any tips for selling on ebay?

September 15th, 2012 3 comments

I am trying to get rid of some old trading cards I have. I just want to know some tips about how the whole process works so I can make a good first sale.

well first make sure you have a paypal account its free to set up and only accept payments via paypal.I would also do a search on e-bay for similar products so that you know what kind of a price you can ask. If you set it to high you may not get any bids.Make sure you also type down the details of the product"what it is" the "condition" Etc…Also take very good pictures of what your selling people like to see what they are buying make sure you take pictures of any defects and mention them in your listing this will cover your butt if someone complains that the product is damaged.And make sure you state your warranty terms in bold letters on the listing "sold as is" "All sales final" Etc…I also have noticed that I seem to sell things closer to the weekends when people get paid so if you list it on Sunday for 7 days be patient if you don’t get any bites at first. Good Luck to you.

Need help Selling Stuff on short notice?

July 7th, 2012 2 comments

We are moving out of state in one week, and our house is basically just as full as it was 2 months ago. We have tried to have a "moving sale" (one person showed up after 2 days of selling), advertised my butt off on, the local paper,ebay, and priced everything uber cheap to sell… but nothing. We have had alot of calls, but of course we wait around and no one ever shows up.

I was thinking of driving to my mothers home 20 miles away tomorrow (Sunday) to try and sell, but I am not prepared, I would have to wake up at 4am to set up, and have heard that Sundays are pretty slow selling days.

At this point I am feeling pretty lost, my condo doesn’t allow moving sales, so I can’t even put up signs, and I don’t know anyone in the area with a yard to do a garage sale there.

Any help on how to sell my stuff would be appreciated!

If all else fails you could gather up all you can’t sell but don’t want and bag it up and donate to the Salvation Army or places that take donations. Get a receipt for it and you can claim that amount on your taxes. You would be surprised how much it adds up and I know a family member that does this each year so basically you still get your money.
