  • Presenter notes : Look up item first to see if it sells. Take photo and load into computer. Box item: always use boxes and packing you find free. List your item using info you got from completed listing that sold for the top dollar. Ship it fast and consider using the shipping lable produced from UPS directly from ebay using paypal to pay for it.

  • Signup link to back account. Only pushing fixed amount.
  • In other words: If a member leaves one neutral rating and one positive rating, it will affect the Feedback Score by +1. If a member leaves three negative ratings and one positive rating during the same week, the Feedback will affect the Feedback Score by -1.
  • There are two drawbacks to using eSnipe. First, it's not free. New users are granted a free trial period, but thereafter, eSnipe charges 1 percent of the final price of the auction, with a minimum fee of 25 cents and a maximum fee of $10. The fees are pretty small, though, and probably pay for themselves with the money saved by sniping. eSnipe fees are paid by purchasing BidPoints, which are available at a discount if purchased in bulk. The second catch is that eSnipe is not smart. It can't read your mind or the minds of the other bidders, nor can it make decisions for you. For instance, if you enter a snipe bid of $54.03 and the price at the time of sniping is $53.99, eBay will refuse your bid because of its incremental bidding rule, even though it's higher than the highest bid. If you sniped the auction manually, then you'd be able to make the call on the spot and raise your bid by the required 96 cents. eSnipe offers a Bid Checkup feature, an automated e-mail sent at a specified time before the end of the auction to notify you of any potential problems with your pending snipe, but the real-world usefulness of the feature is limited since you probably won't be around when it arrives. Personally, I've found the Bid Checkup e-mail to be somewhat of a nuisance, as it merely means I get two e-mail messages notifying me of a failed snipe instead of just one. Fortunately, you can specify 0 (zero) in the Bid Checkup field to disable the feature.
