Get your item sold and shipped on Ebay!!!

Getting started selling on Ebay.

The first thing you need to do to sell on Ebay is to build your feedback ranking up to a minimal of ten. If you have no ranking it will be very hard to sell because buyers often look at the comments and feedback you have from past transactions. In order to build your feedback ranking you need to make about fifteen small digital media purchases such as penny recipes that can be emailed over immediately. Once you have made these purchases you need to leave feedback for the seller to prompt them to give you positive feed back as well. During the transaction you may email the seller through Ebay. Ask them for positive feedback in a nice way. Something like " Thank you for the awesome recipe. You are a great seller. If you can leave me some positive feedback that would greatly appreciated. I will gladly leave you positive feedback as well." This should prompt the seller to leave some good feedback. After you do this about fifteen times to ensure that you have your feedback ranking of at least ten. You can begin to sell. Start with something around the house that you would like to sell. It could be anything.

When you are ready to sell your first item you will need to do a little research. You need to find out what other people are selling that same item for, what condition it is in, whether they are doing free shipping or charging for shipping, and if they are using buy it now listings or auction style listings. The best way to find this information out is to do searches for the product you are trying to sell. You will need to make a few adjustments to your searches for this research. On the left side of the search results screen there are several selections you can use to manipulate your search. First you will want to find out what people are selling your product for and to do this you will click on the completed listing selection in the column on the left side of the screen. Doing this will give you the past two weeks of listings that have ended. These listing will tell you everything you need to know about how you should list your product. Copying success is the best way to sell. The listings with a green price on them are the ones that sold and the red prices did not sell. Look at the listing that sold for the best price. Find out if they used buy it now style or auction style. Then find the price they sold for and whether they did free shipping or charged for shipping. All this information should allow you to sell your product just as they did. When you start building your listing open a second window in your browser and use the research listing as a reference to build your listing. If you list your product like the one that sold your chances of selling are much better than before.

After you have sold your first item on Ebay and you kindly asked for positive feedback from the buyer you are well on your way. The next step is to start selling for an income. You can find things at garage sells, on craigslist, or you can start Drop shipping. Drop shipping is when you develop a relationship with a supplier who will ship the product to your buyer for you so you won't need an inventory or have to purchase anything up front. The easiest way to get drop shippers is to use a few different sites such as DOBA, or GoGo Drop ship. There are several other sites out there that are free to use but these two sites that I listed cost money. Once you have found a good supplier and you have researched the products they have to sell, you should be able to use your research to determine which products you are going to sell. They should be products that are selling well and something you can profit on. Remember there are fees involved with selling on Ebay and using PayPal so make sure to add those into the price of your item. If you are doing free shipping add that cost in as well. After you have added all your cost to the price and you can still make a profit then start selling that product. I hope that this article will help you be a successful seller on Ebay and I wish the best of luck to you. Remember to copy success because it will guarantee yours!!!
