I'm new at selling on Ebay. I listed a couple parts from a business that went under and even though they haven't been listed long only a couple people have even looked and no one has bid. If anyone has some Ebay experience can please take a peek and let me know if I'm doing something wrong? Should I have a buy it now on all the stuff?
I got the stuff for free and I made the shipping enough to cover my time so I don't really care what it sells for but I'm wondering if I went about it correctly?
Here is the auction number 150437440962. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Vibrant-Performance-Ceramic-Core-Catalytic-Converter_W0QQitemZ150437440962QQcmdZViewItemQQptZ Race_Car_Parts?hash=item2306c52dc2
You can see my other three auctions as well. Sorry, nothing Ferrari. There is a 6HP 60 gal Shop Air Compressor I'm going to be selling for anyone in the midatlantic area.
I have a ton of other items I'm going to be listing and just want to know if I'm screwing up?
I've sold and bought cars on ebay, and that isn't too bad. I always offer to show the questions and answers at the bottom, makes for more honest hits.
I might be inclined to have a 'make offer' part, but understand ebay's new pricing policies are not what they used to be. Doubt you'll make anything on this, unless there is a riot bid at the end.
Your feedback is so small, that many might shy away...sometimes before I 'sell' I buy about 10-15 nonsense items to up my count. IF you wait enough time no one will be able to track your listings as they wear away.
I'm a bit diff. in that ALL my feedback shows the $$$ in the description for both BUY and SELL, that is my way of keeping track of how much [email protected]
I've bought over the last decade....that's just me, but IF some of my finished deals are still in a link, people know I am truthful as the listing matches my feedback
LASTLY since you are a lower rated seller, this 'may appear to many as a scam'. Might be nice to show physical hands in the picture, or your cat or something ==know that sounds stupid, but does help.
BTW: I NEVER BID until the last 3-6 SECONDS on an auction. I use esnipe.com and go to sleep....if I win, which I always do for the items I want, I never have to be bidding my intentions right away for others to see:
THAT may be what realy bidders are doing to your listing. Posting MORE pics means you probably have the item.
OFFER to send more pics to honest bidders
ALWAYS threaten lower/negative or dead-beat bidders as that shows you are serious and honest...then again, I did have a very fun auction on this one...which I did just for shucks and giggles.
Note the price and number at almost 800 hits
then again, it was a sense of humor which SOME got and others were outraged.
FINAL sale price: $5 for a fake corn flake
