Tips on Using E-Bay

I have spent a considerable amount of time on E-Bay as both a buyer and a seller. So, for those of you just getting started I am providing you with some tips on using it.

 

TIPS FOR THE BUYER: As a buyer using E-Bay costs you absolutely nothing other than what you decide to spend on an item plus its shipping cost and sales tax(if the seller is in the same state as you).

GENERAL TECHNIQUES:

OTHER TRICKS FOR BUYING:
If you know what it is you are looking for try narrowing down the categories by clicking through the categories in ebay. Once you are in the category most likely to hold the items you are looking for. Type a WORD or WORDS into the SEARCH box and CHECK the box that says search only in that category and click SEARCH. If it finds the item you are looking for great. You may want to use your BACK button on your web browser and try it again with different words. If you are still having no luck have it SEARCH the entire E-Bay site by not specifying a specific category.

TIPS FOR THE SELLER: Selling things on E-bay is a very quick way to rid yourself of excess inventory, come up with extra cash from things you don't really need, and more. It is not free. Items starting at under $10 will cost you $0.25 (they'll invoice you) to insert it. E-Bay also takes a % off the top of items that are successfully sold. I believe it is from 2% to 5% of the final sales price depending on what it sales for. You can check their rates information at their site.
