How to Sell on eBay

Selling on eBay is ridiculously simple. In fact, it all boils down to only three steps. Even if you have never sold something online before, you should find it simple to deal with the whole selling process on eBay. On this page, we are going to take a little look at how to sell on eBay. By the end of it, you hopefully should have all the knowledge you need to list your first product!

Listing the Product

I am going to assume that you already have the product that you want to list to hand. It is absolutely vital that you get this step right. An incorrectly listed product will either not sell, or it will sell for a price far lower than you want it to. To list the product, you will need to do the following:

  1. Take photographs of what you are trying to sell. You are able to add 12 pictures for free to your eBay listing. Make the most of them. Do not just ’snatch’ photos from the internet. You want actual photographs of the product. Try to snap from all angles. You want people to know exactly what to expect when they purchase from you.
  2. Write your product description. Try to be as detailed as possible here. This is especially important if you are selling a product which may be slightly damaged. Again, you want people to know what they are getting for their money. There are plenty of guides online for writing eBay product descriptions. Dive into a couple of them. This is a very ’salesy’ area.
