In this presentation we will look at selling on eBay , the resources required, along with the action plan, tips, and additional considerations in running your campaign.
Introduction to selling on eBay eBay is basically an online auction, although items can also be sold outright for a fixed price. Buyers and sellers are kept honest by a feedback system, in which each is able to rate the other based on the experience.
Cost and timeframe eBay's costs vary depending on the price of the item you want to sell. There are two fees that are charged for each sale an Insertion Fee and a Final Value Fee. You can set their auctions for as low as one day, or up to 10 days while earning a good reputation, making a number of sales, and can take weeks or months.
Action plan Find things with high profit margins and that are always in demand to sell. This is a good way to quickly get started. Setting up a &quot;My eBay&quot; page is necessary to publish your information, so buyers can feel good about buying from you, and can ask questions. Keeping your rating high is more important than making a sale, as customers will not buy from someone who has been rated poorly.
Tips High quality and detailed photos should always be included in any ad, and you should disclose all related information should be accurate. Take care when wrapping the item and ship it as soon as possible after the money has been paid.
Additional considerations If you don't want to bother to sell your items yourself, assistants can be hired to do it for you for a reasonable commission, typically from 15-25%. In fact eBay lists available assistants on their site.
We hope this video has answered key questions you have in mind. Incase you have further questions then please visit us at NextBee.com.
