When selling on eBay it can sometimes be the little things that make the difference.

Take for example the Item Title, the more keywords  relevant to your product that you can have in that one line can make a massive difference to the amount of hits you get.
Remember, when potential buyers are doing a search not everybody will tick "Search title and description ". You may have written a great description but unless that little box has been ticked "Search title and description" only the items with the relevant keywords in the Item Title will be displayed. Take the time to make your Item Titles well worded, do a search yourself, see what sort of listings are returned with words you would use when searching.

Description of your Item:

  • Be honest when describing the condition of your item, if it has a scratch say so, in detail, include a photo if possible.
  • List the benefits your product has to offer rather than features, this gets potential buyers already picturing how they are going to use the item.
  • Answer all questions quickly and concisely.
  • Clearly define postage costs and if pick up is available.
  • Use BULLETS, people tend to scroll THROUGH your Item Description quickly and stop when something grabs their attention.
  • List all forms of payment accepted and how long delivery should take.
  • Thank the winning bidder for their business.

Dont forget to have an "about me" page and use "Check out my other items!". You can get sales from people that aren't buying the item they were looking at.

Most important of all be polite and honest. You can't always please some people but always try and resolve any issues to the satisfaction of all parties.
