- Begin as a buyer. Think about something you need and purchase it on eBay. Think about your experience. What drew you to the item? Was it the price, offer of free shipping, photos, description, Buy it Now option, or feedback about the person you were buying from? Completing a transaction is helpful in knowing what your buyers will be looking for in your listings. If you’ve never bought on eBay before, ebay provides Buying Basics to guide you through the process.
- Start slowly. Review the eBay seller policy pages and choose 1 item from your stash that you won’t be upset about if it doesn’t fetch the optimum price when listed.
- Create your listing. Provide a picture since buyers like to see what they are purchasing and write your listing to include just the facts. eBay recommends ensuring that the item’s brand or manufacturer is spelled correctly in the title so it can be found easily. Include nouns and modifiers (rather than adjectives) in your 80 character description.

- Hone your skills and emphasize quality over quantity as you become more experienced. Optimize a few listings for maximum results and focus on providing good customer service and simple terms of service.
