Ebay: Tips on selling my Nintendo 64 and games?

July 7th, 2012 2 comments

Hey! I am ready to sell my (fully working) Nintendo 64 on Ebay, as well as the controllers and games etc. I was just wondering if anyone could give me some tips for a successful sale. Below I am going to put a few bulletpoints but anythign is most appreciated:

Should I sell them in a bundle or separately?
How long should I auction them for?
Should I set a BUY NOW price?
What should I do for shipping?

Please answer these in more than a "yes/no" manner and add anything else, thanks!

This will be my first sale.

I think you should sell the system with the controllers, but sell the games separately.

I would say set the auction to at least 3 days, maybe a week.

Don’t set a buy it now price unless you have done a lot of research to see what they will sell for on eBay – you don’t want to sell them for less than they are worth.

Shipping is your own preference – find out how much it would cost to ship from wherever it is you would like to ship (USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc.) and charge accordingly. I use FedEx Ground on eBay (because my dad has an account there). I would suggest saying no international shipping on the listing somewhere – it can be a pain in the butt.

Also, an extra tip – people (well most people anyway, especially me) are reluctant to buy from first-time sellers. You may be able to sell your stuff for more if you have a friend/family member with an eBay account that they have sold from before.
