Ebay Selling

Well I seem to have spent the entire weekend creating listings on Ebay!

As I'm an avid Ebay purchaser I thought it was about time I started to sell some of those impulse buys that either don't fit; don't suit me or just were not what I expected :-)

It took so much more time than I expected. First I had to photograph the items and upload them to my Photobucket account where I then edited them to the correct size. Then I created the wording for the listing and copied it to an Ebay friendly template site to get the look that I wanted.

I then had to create links to my ME page on Ebay and my feedback page.

After all that was done I had to enter all the details onto Ebay listing page along with the postage cost which I had previously checked on the Post Office site.

Oh and I mustn't forget including a link to a scrolling gallery site so that whichever product you were looking at you could see all other items scrolling along at the bottom.

Then I submitted it and checked it....

Phew I'm worn out - is it worth it I wonder :-D

I hope it is. I've bought and sold a few items on eBay. To get any interest in your items, it does pay to take your time getting the listing right. Some items I advertised sold well, others disappointed. There is no way of knowing until the dying moments of an auction how well you will do.

PS Thank you for the comment about our news. I don't think we will reach anywhere near nine. That total deserves a lifetime achievement award :-)
