Here is a quick guide of being successful in the ebay world. These are 4 easy steps to get you started and become an ebay expert.
Hold that bid
When bidding for an item wait till the last 10mins to place your bid. Reason is if bid earlier then other bidders can beat that bid and there for raises the item cost. The less bidding the lower the price will likely be.
When bidding look at similar items first to compare postage costs. Some sellers have cheaper postage and if wanting more than one item you can save even more. For example if seller is located closer to you the postage will be cheaper. So look out for sellers in your area.
To get the best outcome on your selling item the best key is to find an item on sale or at a clear out price. For example a shop might be clearing out stock which other stores aren't. Meaning it is at a low purchase price. Then place on ebay and the chance of a higher profit is easier. Be sure to find low cost items that are popular and that will likely to sell high.
Low bid price gives higher interest
Make sure before placing item on for sale that you research other similar items. If your starting bid is higher then the chance of interest is lower. Try putting item at lower starting bid to draw higher interest and will create more chance of item selling and being at higher price.
