How To Sell On Ebay & Keep Your Shirt

Ebay charged you to list your item; they charged you to add pictures; they charged you to add upgrades; they charged you to use a template; they charged you to put your auction up at a certain time; and then, on top of everything else. . .they charged you AGAIN for closingrepparttar sale.

At this point, you would have been happy to walk away from your huge sale withrepparttar 147625 shirt on your back. But no. Paypal arrived onrepparttar 147626 scene to process your transaction for a small fee - your shirt.

. . .and there you sat at your computer, frustrated and shirtless. You were probably ready to just throw your hands up in dispair and quit selling on Ebay.

But you didnít. You stuck with it. Maybe you havenít had any success on Ebay since then, but what matters is that you stuck with it. And that is easilyrepparttar 147627 most important part about selling on Ebay: sticking with it until you get that breakthrough.

And for that, I am going to reward you by showing you some simple tricks I have used to preventrepparttar 147628 fee-mongers from extracting all of my profits. Hopefully this will help you to dorepparttar 147629 same and find your breakthrough.

The first method is using free hosting services for all of your auction pictures. If you sell a lot of small items on Ebay, this will save you a considerable amount of money in fees. If you only sell large items, this will allow you to cut back on unncessary fees on each auction.

I personally suggest using Geocities.com for this. All you have to do is uploadrepparttar 147630 pictures you want in your auctions and then then reference them in repparttar 147631 actual auctions.

The second fee-saving method I suggest is creating or purchasing a template for your auctions. I personally suggest learning HTML, which doesnít take very long, and using it to create your own template.
