Step #2: PRICING: In eBay search area, enter the item name and click "search". On left side, select completed items or sold , then sort by PRICE, highest first. This will allow you to research price of the item, what has sold (green) and what has not sold (red). Consider the condition of your item and make sure that you are looking at the exact same item as yours. Items sold with bids, means that item was sold at auction vs. store (your price). This price is generaly lower because you have to have the right person looking at the item when it is closing, otherwise, itemwill sell cheap! If you are pricing an item and putting it in your eBay store, enter a higher price than one that is sold at auction. If an item sold for $125, $75, $50, you will need to look at conditions and choose your price based on your guess...i.e. Why did it sell for those different amounts; auctions vs store, condition, etc... Remember that you can always put a sale on items in your eBay store, so pricing at the higher amount isn't a bad thing.
If you have a RARE item or an item that you are not sure about, you should put it at auction, starting at a price that you are comfortable with.
Step #1: Copy description page of one of your listings or with this (note that the first paragraph has words staring with capital letters or even important word all capitalized):
SIGNED Decision Points by George W Bush President United States Authentic Autographed Book
All items and autographs are garenteed to be authentic. Although items have not been submitted to an outside agency for authenticity, these items were obtained through Reliable sources and double checked by our team.
Step #3: Once you find the correct item, click the link "SELL ONE LIKE THIS". If you don't see the link, you may have to "go back" and find another item, as overseas items will not have this link.
Step #4: Go to Description and "paste". This will paste what you copied before. Change the top paragraph to fit your item, change your location information. Select and "Copy" just the first paragraph. Select "save" or "done".
Step #5: Go to Title and "paste". Fix any errors do to size limitations. Remember this, so that when you fix the first paragraph from the description, so that the important stuff is put first, so it will fit in your title.
Step #6: Go back to descriptions, select everything, and click "copy". This is for your next listing.
Step #7: Go to pictures and add up to 12 pictures. Remember that your first picture is what potential customers see first, so make it nice. If you are selling a set or lot, take a picture which includes ALL items. If you use your smart phone, you can CROP the picture. This will give the best results. Make sure that all pictures are NOT upside down, etc.... Picture ALL damage and explain in your description page.
Step #8: Enter your price. If for your eBay store, enter in fixed items area. Be SURE to list as GTC Good Til Canceled. Also select "allow best offers" as this will indicate someone is willing to offer something and allow you to offer/decline.
If you list at auction, select the auction area and enter your STARTING price. No need to change anything else.
Step #9: For shipping, use recommended shipping UNLESS you are shipping something that weights less than 13 ounces when packaged up, or media mail (Records, books, music, etc.). In this case, you will need to change the shipping type. You can change the estimated weight and deminsions if large as in a picture frame. It doesn't matter too much if it's not perfect. You will get experienced in this area and "feel" when you want to change something.
