Friday, 19 Nov 2010 11:06 AM

One easy way to get rid of your old, unwanted stuff is to sell it through the online auction website eBay. Here is how you can get started:
Starting off on eBay
To start off, you need to open an account on eBay. You will need to have either a credit card or a checking account to open an eBay account. If you are just looking to sell off your old stuff, then a basic account will work for you.
Secured mode of payment
Once you are registered on eBay, you need a secured mode of payment for money transfer. PayPal is one of the most secure and easy-to-operate modes for money transfer. All you have to do is register on PayPal and get your checking account confirmed. Once you have your checking account verified, you can find the options to deposit and withdraw money on the home page of PayPal.
Fixing a price for your products
Now, you can start buying or selling things on eBay. For selling on eBay, you will need to decide on a price for your things. To decide on the price, you can find out prices of similar products being sold on eBay. You need to be sure that you have not overpriced your products, because that will make them difficult to sell.
Advertising your products
Once you have decided on a price, you need to take high-quality pictures of the products to attract potential buyers. Post these photos next to your product listed on the eBay portal.
Finding the appropriate category for your products
Ensure that you list your product under the right category. For example, if you are trying to sell a camera, put it in the Electronics category. To find the appropriate category, you can search for similar items and check the category they are listed under.
Selling on eBay is easy if you follow a few simple steps. After completing the basic formalities and fixing a competitive price, you can get rid of your unwanted stuff in a matter of days. After all, one man's trash is another man's treasure!
