When its time to clean-up around house, some people have a hard time deciding what to keep and what to throw out. What they need is an incentive.
How about collecting cash from stuff that was collecting dust?
You can do this by auctioning-off your unwanted or no longer needed items on eBay. eBay is largest online market place of its kind. If you are considering this, then you need to gain some basic knowledge of listing process.
Here is a 10-item checklist to go over before you begin selling:
1. Look at Other Seller Listings
Do a search for your item. See how other sellers list same or similar item. Take mental note of category, title, description, photo and pricing.
2. Choose Most Appropriate Category
Make sure your item is in most appropriate category. Avoid placing it in a category where it doesn't belong. List your item in wrong category, and people looking for your item will not find it. Let eBay suggest category for you, if you are unsure which category your item belongs.
3. Write an Accurate Title for Your Listing
Make it easy for buyers to find your item in a search by writing a precise title of it. Be as exact and detailed as possible so your item can show up in broad keyword searches too. Avoid using hype words like "Best," "Great," or "Fantastic." Putting these words in title will not help buyers find your item because they don't type in these types of words in their searches.
4. Set Your Price Low
Entice your buyers by starting at a low price. Set a reserve price in your listings so you don't have to sell it when auction ends at too low of a price for you to make a profit.
