Tips for Selling on eBay

Whether you are selling on eBay occasionally or regularly, this requires some techniques so that you product reaches the highest price. The main advantage of this platform is that it is not the seller who sets the sales price but the buyer. This is indeed the basis of the bidding system in general, but what is really interesting is that even so, you can sell an item at a higher price compared to the market average. Here are a few tips to help you increase your profits when selling on eBay.

The ad is obviously the most important. Ebay is full of amateurs who can not write a coherent text able to promote the item put on sale. With a catchy title, a subtitle and a professionally written text, the chances of selling your item at a good price will increase dramatically. It may sound logical, but if you go on eBay, you will see that the majority of ads are very low quality. You must put yourself in the buyer’s place and you will realize that his/her main concern is the seriousness of the seller. Therefore, insist on it, highlight your positive feedback, the care taken to prepare the package and do it subtly.

A compulsory requirement if you want to increase your selling price is represented by photos. Upload as many as you can, providing a detailed presentation of your product. It might also be a good idea to include in one of them a piece of paper with your username, date and place where you took the picture. You will seem more trustworthy.

Other important aspects refer to the moment the item is put on sale, the duration as well as the starting price. It is better to launch the product around lunch break or at the weekend as it will benefit from more audience during the time it will appear among the most recently posted items. In order to establish a starting price, a thorough knowledge of the demand for the respective product and of competition prices is necessary.
