When selling something on e-bay, it pays to describe the particular item as honestly as possible, especially to avoid potential negative feedback from an enraged buyer.

Check the item thoroughly, does it have:

  • scratches?
  • dents?
  • warped in any way?
  • cracks?
  • marks?
  • stains?
  • fingerprints?
  • smells?

If any (or all) of the following apply to your item, DESCRIBE AS HONESTLY AS POSSIBLE these defects, as no buyer likes getting a surprise in the mail when they open up for the item and find it is in significantly different condition from what it has been described as.

If possible, take close up photographs of all the parts of the item that have any defects so that potential buyers are more able to make an informed decision on a potential purchase.  Most potential buyers will still bid on your item if they see that you are being honest about it, so don't be afraid to list it as such.

Listing an item totally honestly gives the seller peace of mind that a buyer can have no come back for a refund/exchange/negative feedback as all defects are listed in the items description which can be viewed by everyone for 90 days after the item has been sold.

IN SHORT, HONESTY IN LISTINGS PROVIDES A SMOOTHER E-BAY EXPERIENCE FOR ALL, AND CAN EASILY HELP AVOID NEGATIVE FEEDBACK!
