Basic Tips for eBay Sellers

Posted : Friday 25th January 2013

Years after Ebay lauched sellers, have got wise to finding ways to handle your eBay business. Here are some basic guidelines to live by.

  • Answer all e-mail questions from prospective bidders and buyers within 24 hours and check your e-mail hourly before the close of your auctions. This will build up your reputation of great customer service.

  • When listing a new item, research it and be sure that you know its current value and the going price.

  • Before listing, weigh your item and estimate the shipping cost.

  • Always see how many other sellers are selling your item and try not to have your auction close within a few hours of another.

  • To encourage bidding, set the lowest possible starting bid for your item.

  • Check the eBay guidelines to be sure that your item is permitted.

  • Get to know the listing patterns of sellers who sell similar merchandise to yours, and try to close your auctions at different times or days.

We hope these useful tips help you. Happy Selling!
