Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

About a year ago I was in the attic and seen a lot of boxes piled up in the corner and was wondering what all of it was. To my surprise it was a lot of auction items. Let me explain. I love a deal and auctions are the place. You know the kind were the persons house was stock piled for the last thirty years. Yeah those are the ones I'm talking about. I want one item out of a pile and end up with the whole pile. Pull out the one item I wanted the rest of the pile heads up to the attic. What do I do with all of it? This is good stuff. That's right I start selling stuff on eBay. The problem was I didn't know how to sell on eBay. I didn't know if I would make money on eBay. A little searching and playing around I found out how easy it was to sell on eBay. I hope I will be able to give you a little help so you can start selling and making money on eBay a little faster.

The first thing your going to want to do is go to ebay and become a member. This is easy you just follow step by step what they ask for and done. The second thing your going to want to do is go to PayPal and open a account there. PayPal is a online bank account. EBay will send your buyer here to pay you.

The next thing you want to do is find the item you want to sell. The best way to find out what you item is worth is to go back to eBay. Log in. Lets say you have a old Ford match box car to sell. In the search at the top type in match box car. All listing that have match box car in the title will pop up. WOW! 900 is a lot of match box cars to look through. I go back to the search and type in old Ford match box car. 23 that's better. One buyer is asking 99 cents and one buyer is asking 23 dollars but that still doesn't tell you what they have been selling for. If you scroll done and look to the left you will see completed listings. Hit that button and that will show you what sellers received for there item. Now you have a idea of what kind of money you will get when you start selling on eBay.

To start selling on eBay you go to my eBay. There along the top under the icons you will find buy and sell. Press sell and follow the instructions.

You are ask for a picture to upload but if you don't have a digital camera you can always copy and paste a picture from some were else and put it there. Let you buyer know that that isn't a picture of the item but you are selling one similar.

With item descriptions try to describe as best as possible. Even pointing out the flaws. You want to make money on eBay and not have a item returned because you didn't give a proper description.

I have a blast selling stuff on eBay. Make money on eBay. Get rid of some unwanted items and have fun. If I can do it I know you can to. Take your time and next thing you know you will be getting a email saying Congratulations your item sold. Hopefully this will help you to sell on eBay.

Just have fun Selling stuff on eBay and make some extra money. Check out my Selling on eBay web site for buying and selling on eBay training.
