Are you ready to learn how to be an eBay seller? You will find it to be easy, fun, and exciting. Here are some of things that you need to know to get started.
Although there are several other quality auction websites, eBay is by far most popular and most successful. Although you could start using all other sites, by spreading yourself out too thin you take risk of getting things mixed up. In reality, it is better to use eBay and focus your attention and efforts on this one site. You will not be disappointed.
Navigate through each section to familiarize yourself with all different pages. You will find a site map and help tab, which are very useful tools. It will take a little time to get used to site but start by looking. As you start selling, navigating will become much easier.
Terms & Conditions
You will run into all types of buyers that try to move past terms and conditions provided by eBay. Know Terms & Conditions inside and out and if you have problems, contact eBay immediately. A few examples of insider secrets are listed below:
* Bid Shielding – Two buyers work together. One person bids high to protect a low bid place by other person. Right before auction closes, high bidder cancels, meaning low bidder gets your items for a huge bargain.
* Bid Shilling – This is where seller actually uses a separate ID set up to inflate number and price of bid.
* Deadbeat Bidder – The deadbeat bidder bids on your auction and then simply fails to pay.
* Sniping – A “sniper” is a bidder that waits until there are only minutes or seconds left on an item and then quickly bids just a little higher to get items. Although not against T&C’s, it is considered unprofessional and limits competing bidders from driving a high price.
