TIP #2......

AS A SELLER, YOU DONT HAVE TO SELL SOMETHING FOR LESS THAN YOU WANT FOR IT!!

Ebay is an auction site, BUT you can set the minimum amount that you will accept for the item. And if that minimum price is not met, you ARE NOT obligated to sell !!!!

Isnt Ebay starting to sound fun???

this technique is called "Reserve" and what this does is set a target price that must be met by a bidder or you will not sell. So for those of you who are scared to sell something for fear it will go for way less than you want, have no fear. Ebay has thought of EVERYTHING.

TIP # 3....

INVEST IN A GOOD, HIGH RESOLUTION DIGITAL CAMERA IF WANT TO GET THE MOST BIDS ON YOUR ITEM.

Pictures are the #1 selling tool on Ebay. Auctions that show no pictures rarely get bids, and if they do, it will be for Way Less Money Than You Want.

Any pictures you post on your auction page should be clear, crisp, light and bright. The better the picture, the more money you will receive. Competition is stiff on Ebay, so the more you showcase what youre selling, the more people will want to buy it. its the same for going shopping in a real store, the better the presentation the more likely you are to buy it. Also, the more photos you show of your item the better. People want to know what they are buying. They want to know exactly what they are getting.

PICTURES PICTURES PICTURES ....get a good camera and take alot of photos of grandmas tablecloth, up close and personal. You''ll get way more bids than someone who doesnt have good pictures.

TIP # 4...

USE THE DESCRIPTION SECTION OF YOUR AUCTION PAGE TO TELL AS MUCH AS YOU CAN ABOUT WHAT YOURE SELLING...

i dont care if youre sellling a roll of toilet paper or a unique rare coin, make the most of the DESCRIPTION section of your auction page. Dont write 2 sentences. This section is unlimited, Ebay allows you to write as much as you want. Alot of people make the mistake of not adequately describing what they are selling. Write several paragraphs!!  tell the potential buyer what it is exactly they are getting, even if its an item that alot of others are selling (like a CD or video for example).  That potential buyer clicked into your auction page because they want your item. Dont dissapoint. If they have to email you to get more details, they just might decide not to bother, and go to the next persons item instead.

TIP # 5....

BEFORE YOU SET YOUR MINIMUM BID, DO A SEARCH FOR OTHERS JUST LiKE YOURS


IF someone is selling another Sony Portable CD Player exactly like the one you have to sell, for a minimum bid of $9.99 with a top bid of 14.99 at the time youre looking at it, it doesnt make sense to start your bidding at 19.99, for example. You wont get any bids. People will continue to bid on the $14.99 item. As a rule of thumb, know your product and about what others like it have sold for in the past, before you set a way too high minimum bid price.
