And how much would you add as postage? I tried searching for large jars and they're arent many listings..Sorry in advance if this is something fairly simple


Less than the shop.

Do free postage (as in include it in the price) as this will automatically get you five stars from ebay for postage charges.

Once you decide how much you want to make, add the postage and then multiply it by 1.145 and this will cover your eBay and PayPal charges.

If you want to get £10 for something that weighs 1kg:

£10
+
£3 postage
*
1.145
=
£14.88

Call it £15.00 buy it now price - this will leave you with £10 after all your other costs.

Thanks, had an item end tonight, someone with 0 feedback on a brand new account bid in the last 5 seconds. Surprise surprise no payment or contact to say they'll pay later. It's really annoying as everyone else that bid on the item had feedback 500+. Only thing that bugs me about eBay, you can't block zero feedback new accounts. I get everyone has to start somewhere but more often than not they bid and run.
You have to list between now and midnight on Monday 4/11

If your item sells you pay max £1

If it doesn't sell you pay nothing

The £1 offer does not carry over to a second listing period

You can end everything you currently have listed and realist to take advantage of the offer and you are breaking no rules

Use the "sold" box to see what your item usually sells for to get a good estimate of market value

If you do best off/BIN listings use the 10% you would normally pay ebay as a target price from any buyer - why not the idea is to sell your stuff. A bird in the hand etc

As said before including postage in price "free" gets you an auto five stars from eBay. If you list postage as a separate charge do not repeat do not charge more than it costs. Many buyers will ask for the difference back and a refusal may see you get negative feedback and fewer than five stars for postage charges. Also dont use packing charges as an excuse to charge more - if you can't throw in a bag/box and some packing material probably best you do t get into selling.

If you allow a buyer to collect then you must insist on cash - you lose your seller protection if you have no proof of postage etc.

Do not sell off of eBay if a buyer contacts you - ebay may pick up on it charge you the full 10% and punish you with difficult to find future listings.

Always leave good feedback for your buyer first. If they pay as agreed they have fulfilled their part of the agreement and you can't leave negative feedback so you might as well encourage them to respond in kind

Don't argue over a return even if the buyer lies about condition to get free postage - your seller rating is worth more than the three quid charge and you'll only stress yourself out. Just accept that a small proportion of buyers are shady - you are dealing with humans after all.

Wrap goods really well and post as soon you can: we all love to receive our stuff as quickly as possible. I always list as 2 to 3 day service then tell them I'm upgrading to first class or one day service. You've included the cost in the price so it only makes you look good.

Most importantly don't lie about the condition of you items. Be accurate and if anything overemphasise any faults - your buyer will be pleased to get something better than expected but not vice versa.

Oh, and maybe even more important, give your buyer the ebay experience you would expect yourself. Don't rely on the standard ebay comms - a quick message saying thank you etc goes a long way.

Good luck. I like ebay and get rid of all my excess crap that I buy because of this site on there and sometimes even make a profit.

I never do BIN auctions, you get far more in my experience by listing at £0.99p and getting people to bid against each other. I've sold many used items for more than they cost to buy new!

You can block buyers who have had 2 unpaid cases opened in the space of 1 month/6 months or 12 months in the preferences section of ebay.

Yeah I have everything I can blocked, but new accounts don't have any unpaid items so it doesn't work for them unfortunately.

Really? My auctions are weird. For average demand items they sell lower than average, but high demand they sell higher than average.
Thanks.

Yeah that's my experience as well, but I only ever really sell high ticket items now, smaller things aren't really worth it after paypal, fees and postage.

What kind of stuff are you selling?

I'm having a clear out and think I have been under pricing my stuff.

Trying to get rid of as much as possible as "cash on collection" first and have been surprised how far people have been willing to travel.
This comes every 2 weeks. So I just wait every 2 weeks to sell my items
To all experienced ebay sellers..
I'm not sure I'm pricing my items correct loll so any advice is much appreciated!

Eg I have a whole load of brand new large yankee candle jars I really dont want anymore, does anyone know how much would be best to sell them at? And how much would you add as postage?
I tried searching for large jars and they're arent many listings..
Sorry in advance if this is something fairly simple

Thank you for this, appreciate it. So I had listed some things in the last £1 promotion thing, I revised the listings to include the postage in price just there..assuming the £1max fee still applies if you change the price right?

Lol here's hoping.

You think? I take it you have to be up and active on Facebook though? Or can you just make it solely for selling? Also, that means meeting dodgy people lol
This may sound stupid but does it mean if I list an item today on eBay does it need to finish by the 4/11 ?
I actually got the email in my eBay messages box clicked on it and promotion not available? what's that about? I know sometimes your not eligible but it's never happened when they actually send you the email?

Very annoying when this happens. I'll give them time but if nothing I'll report them to eBay, open up an unpaid item case, block them from bidding again and then offer a second chance offer to the second highest bidder if they're still interested in buying the item. If all fails, just have to wait until the case closes to get the listing fee back and then relist it. Very annoying.

I've been tormented by these accounts recently. All propably one person. All reported. All you can do is block accounts with negative feedbacks or non payer strikes, but not 0 feedback. Ridiculous as sellers can't leave negatives, so that kind of practice can continue.
