5. Give Plenty of Time for Your Auction
Let as many people as possible see your auction. Set duration for five or seven days so weekend buyers will have a chance to bid on your item too.
6. Show a Photo of Your Item
Take a digital photo of your item and post it with your listing. Let your buyers see what they are bidding on. Allow photo to help you sell it. Having to see something first before you buy it is only natural. Apply this same principle to online auctions. Buying a digital camera is a good investment these days and instructions on loading pictures up to eBay site are simple enough that there really is no excuse not to have a picture.
7. Give Buyers Plenty of Payment Options
Make it easy for buyer to pay. Providing as many payment options as available is better. Place in your item listing your own merchant account or credit card processor information. Sign up with Paypal if you don't have your own merchant account. Let buyers pay by check or money order if you don't provide payment through Paypal or credit cards. Including all payment options leaves no buyers behind.
8. Be Clear on Shipping and Handling Information
Avoid troubles or negative seller feedback by stating upfront your shipping costs. Mention this clearly in your listing. Include your return policy.
9. Give Contact Information
Gain buyer's trust by freely stating your contact information. List your email, phone number or mailing address.
10. Keep on Testing
Review auctions that have ended. Learn from wins and losses. Try changing category, title, description or price if it didn't sell. Testing individual elements in auction process is critical to your goal of becoming a successful auction seller.
