eBay is a worldwide online auction site that allows individuals to buy and sell cars, electronics, apparel, sporting goods, collectibles, and almost anything else imaginable. This site is available to the public so anyone can post an item for sale or purchase something listed. Everyone should know how to buy and sell on eBay to make money.
Step 1: On the eBay home page, enter key words relevant to the item being sought and click on the “search” button. The search can be narrowed to focus on specific categories of items. There is also a list of categories from which users can select, displayed down the left hand side of the page.
Step 2: On the search results page, consumers can refine their search to specific types of products within the broader categories. The condition, price range of the item, type of seller, specific kinds of listings, location, and distance can also be stipulated.
Step 3: Consumers can select from ads that offer different buying formats. They can place price bids in an auction-style purchase, or they can elect to purchase an item on the spot for a price determined by the seller. There are also classified ad style listings that a consumer can select.
Step 4: Read about product details and either place a bid or buy the item now.
Step 1: Select a category to post the item in by entering at least three key words. Sellers can also browse existing categories. Make the category breakdown selections as required by the subsequent pages.
Step 2: Create a title for the advertisement, add photos, describe the item being sold, establish a price, list shipping details, and specify how acceptable methods of payment. Save and preview the listing. The relevant cost of the listing will be displayed. Sellers can upload one photo at no charge, but additional photos cost 15 cents each. A gallery plus listing allows users to display a large picture in the search results page as well as display certain details or different views for buyers.
