Ways to Improve Your Selling Position on Ebay

Selling your personal items, new and old, on eBay has become extremely popular. It has become more popular than listing items in a local newspaper, or having a yard sale. With eBay, you can reach far more potential buyers in a matter of minutes, and it’s easy. The cost to list and sell items is very reasonable, and there are ways to improve your selling position on eBay. Let’s take a look at a few of those little secrets to put you on top, when it comes to selling on eBay.

Most importantly, you have to give the buyer what they want, and make your item for sale stand out. This involves making everything about your listing clean and neat. Make a great, eye-catching heading for the item. Create a heading grabs the buyer’s attention. Put yourself in the buyer’s shoes when creating your listing, thinking about what would appeal to you. The pictures you create and post for your item should be clear and detailed. Most buyers are very visual and purchase items based on how well you photograph them. Experiment with different backgrounds and positions for the items you wish to sell. Make sure all items that are included in the sale are in the photograph. The description of the item for sale should be very detailed and include correctly spelled words. Make the description exciting with power words, as well as bold and colored words. Your description should be informative and explain all of the positive aspects of the item.

It is very important not to over price your item. If you are listing an auction type ad, start at the lowest price you can accept. If your item is priced low enough, most buyers just love competing with other buyers for a low priced item. When buyers compete, your price goes higher!

Additionally, buyers love free things. Throw in an extra little freebie with the purchase as an incentive, or better yet, offer free shipping. Some buyers will only purchase items that offer free shipping.

As soon as you receive your payment, package the item well and ship promptly, including a little thank you note in the package to the buyer. When you make your buyer happy, they provide good feedback for you, and good feedback gives you more stars, and more stars gives you a good reputation as a great seller.

 Selling on eBay With No Auctions!

If you are someone who knows what your goods are worth, and if you are tired of the bidding battles that often end with you underselling your goods at auction, it is time for you to look at eBay’s other selling options. The truth of the matter is that while eBay is known for being an online auction site, you can also sell your goods for a fixed price. What do you need to know about selling your item without the need for auction?

When you go to set up the listing, make sure that you select the option that is labeled as “Fixed Price.” This means that buyers will be able to buy your item at once, and that there will be no bidding war on the item at all. At first this seems that it would be a disadvantage when it comes to selling your option, but this is not the case. Too many sellers under-price their item, hoping to incite a bid war, but the truth of the matter is that most of the time, the item goes for much less than it should. A fair Fixed Price avoids this problem.

The mechanism that eBay uses to list their offerings helps you, because Fixed Price items simply have a Buy It Now button beside the listing. When people search for your items, they can find them by simply clicking the Buy It Now tab. Your work will be part of greater searches that gets you to the buyer’s attention.

Another interesting advantage is that the Fixed Price listing does allow you to sell more than one item in each listing, and further more, you will be able to create multiple listings at a time without needing to worry about exhaustive reposting. This is perfect for people who are selling many goods at one time. If you are a wholesaler, this is something that can make a huge difference to your business’s efficiency.

You can also take advantage of the Best Price offer if you list an item as being Fixed Price. This is something that allows the prospective buyer to negotiate the price with you before purchase. This is a good way to deal one on one with the buyer and to make sure that you are getting the most money that you can for your goods.

If you are tired of the conventional eBay auction, take a moment to learn more about Fixed Price items!
