Sell your Stuff on EBAY!

Over the past several years I have developed a keen appreciation for the EBAY Action website and I am a firm believer that there is no better place to buy or sell anything then EBAY.  Over the years I have sold everything from collectable knives, tools, jewelry, timeshares, and even a 1967 Mustang Convertible to a gentleman in Sweden!  I have found that regardless if you have a small collectable item or a large item that only a few people may be interested in purchasing, EBAY will provide you with the exposure you need to sell that item!

An introduction to eBay

Nobody has all the answers to selling on eBay. If you perform a thorough survey of eBay instructional material on the internet (which I recommend), you'll find that everyone seems to have their own opinion about what works best. (Another great source of information for the eBay seller is eBay's own Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and users forums which can be of great help to the new seller.) The eBay new user board can be found HERE.

Why sell on eBay? Most people who sell on eBay have full-time jobs. They use eBay to supplement their income, liquidate an estate, cull out items from their collection, or use it in lieu of a yard sale to sell things that they no longer want or need. Becoming even more common are those sellers who purchase new products at wholesale prices and re-sell them on eBay for a profit. You don't have to sell full-time on eBay though. You can sell as many or as few items as you want (as long as you have a supply of low-cost products). It's a great money-making hobby. Keep your day job and sell on eBay in the evenings and on the weekends.

The great thing about eBay is that the more work that you put into selling on eBay, the more money you make. This is very appealing to many sellers. However, selling on eBay, like any other business, can be hard work. A big motivation for those that end up power selling on eBay, is the desire to own a business; to be their own boss. eBay is perfect for starting a small sales business because of the low initial set-up costs - it's low risk.

Registering on eBay - If you do not already have an account with eBay, you'll have to
Register to sell in order to buy or sell on the eBay auction site. For buyers, all that eBay requires is your name, address, e-mail and telephone number. For sellers, you'll also need to provide credit card information. eBay uses a secure system to receive your credit card number, so there is no risk that anyone can intercept your credit card number. If buying on eBay, there will be no charge. If you sell on eBay, your credit card will be automatically charged on a monthly basis for any listing fees and commissions.
