- USE CAPS in auction title to attract your buyer
- Put as much information as you can in auction title
- The more information you put in your auction description the better
- Use gallery as an option, most buyers only look for gallery auctions
Buyers generally go for an auction that catches their eye straight away.
Rewasearch your item through ebay or even google to get as much info as you can on your item you are selling, the more info you put in your item description the less likely of getting questions about your item.
Good communication with your buyers is a must. If you are going to sell on-line then make yourself available to check emails at least once a day to answer and questions.
Present your item in its best possible condition.
Be honest with your description of your item.
Space your auction information out and use a larger FONT SIZE around 12 to 14, colour is also a good tool.
A good tip is to write your auction details using Microsoft Word and copy and paste your details into item descrition when on-line. By using Microsoft Word you then have access to a wider variety of colours font types and sizes and you have the ability to be really creative.
Make you item available WORLDWIDE, this can give you a much wider coverage. You will need to find out what your item will cost to send Internationally but don't be put off if the postage cost is high if somebody really wants your item they will pay whatever it takes.
If you are going to accept Internation buyers then get youself a Paypal account simple to use and payments are made instantly, Paypal is linked with ebay and a very large percentage of user have paypal accounts.
Good practice to have all postage and handling charges available in your auction description so a buyer knows exactlly what to expect.
Create a list of selling polices:
Payment types accepted, Paypal - Bank deposit - Cheque - money order etc
Fees, No GST only extra is Postage and Handling
Shipping and Delivery Times, How often can you mail out parcels and when can a buyer expect thier item
Refund policy, Will you offer refunds? If so in what time frame?
Contact, What is the best form of contact for you? Phone - Email etc
If you surf ebay a little you will see some selling policies other buyers have to give you an idea its just about ensuring the buyer their will be no little surprises when they buy from you.
