Hi ebower, you can find many information on the matter if you google it. though I will like to give you an important tip that will help you a lot as a seller or as a buyer. Ebay buyers and sellers look for trusted sellers and trusted buyers as we would when we go to buy anything in person. But how can you know if the seller you are buying from or the buyer is trustworthy? Here is where ebay feedback is so important. So the more positive feedback you have the better. How can you increase your feedback fast and free?
Sell food recipes in PDF format or just in word format, just to have an idea go to ebay and type penny auction and you will find hundreds of those, and you will see that the majority buying are ebay users that have very few feedback and normally the ones selling too. So they are nor buying necessarily for the recipe,(they can find it for free on google) it is because of the feedback they want to obtain
Sorry for my long explanation, but in simple words sell food recipes on ebay= positive feedback for free and very fast, you will always get 5 stars feddback = more buyers buying from you, vital if you will be selling on ebay. I will be posting tips soon in my hub I have been selling on ebay,amazon for more than 6 years.
