eBay Instructions
This Site Spun with Virtual Mechanics SiteSpinner V2
Step #2: PRICING: In eBay search area, enter the item name and click "search". On left side, select SOLD or Completed , 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 may want to put it at auction, starting at a price that you are comfortable with.

You can also search Abesbooks.com for book prices & Worthpoint.com for ebay historical sold items.

Step #1: Start by surching on ebay for the item.  You should sort by "sold" and "from highest to lowest". This will allow you to view what their items sold for.  Once you find the correct item, open & 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 #3: Fix TITLE of item, possibly copy & paste from description.
Step #4: 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 #5: 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.

Select done.
Step #6: 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.
