Basic Tips

Basic Listing Tip

Have a ruler and/or measuring tape handy when listing items for sale. Providing the items' measurements in your listing can help avoid buyer questions. Using a common visual prop in your pictures, such as a soda can, a ruler, a coin for smaller items, can help buyers get a prespective of size.

Where To Find Instruction Manuals

No instruction manual. When selling any item online, that originally came with an instruction manual, it might be a good idea to tell the people where they can find a copy of the owners manual, or if possible post a link in your listing ad that goes to the online web site that has a copy of the manual.

The best source is usually the manufacturer, but surprisingly that does not always work. A quick search using the name and model number of the item and words such as manual, instruction manual, service manual, (whatever applies) will often turn up a web site that has a version of the manual. This web search takes a few minutes, but it lets a potential buyer know that they can get easily download a copy of the manual if they purchase the item - big selling point.

Online Owners Manuals - This web site has 1000's of owners manuals, user manuals, assembly manuals, repair manuals and service manuals. Appliance Manuals - Fitness Manuals - Marine Manuals - Electronics Manuals - Home Manuals - TV Manuals.

Manuals Online - Free User Manuals. Search over 700,000 Products.

Where to Find Technical and Size Specifications.

Most manufactures have technical and size specifications, along with any requirements for using their merchandise posted at their web sites. If not, many review sites will have that type of information posted. It can be a good selling point to provide a link or URL name to a web site with this helpful information.

Selling items that are broken, damaged, and incomplete comes with risks. There are many reasons to sell broken or incomplete items, such as for parts or for buyers to repair. The catch is that buyers do not always read carefully, and like many of us they often read what they want to read into an item's description. When selling items with faults, damage, or that are incomplete, it could be a good idea to repeat the item's condition several times, along with statements such as sold "as is", and sold for "parts" only. Perhaps even put "for parts" in the listing title.

How to Value Your Products

Pricing Items To Sell

Determining the best price to sell items for is daunting, because it sometimes seems that the price can change almost daily for some items. Seasons can effect pricing value as well as the number of current lisitngs.

One of the best places to research what things are selling for is eBay, using the "Completed" option. Many selling web sites do not provide "sold for" prices, but eBay does. Along the left side of an eBay search results page are numerous advanced search options, under the option "Show only" is "Completed listings" and the more recently added "Sold listings". Clicking on the "Completed" option will change your search page to show closed listings, both sold and unsold listings, the sold item prices are in green and unsold are in red. Clicking on the "Sold listings" will return results only for items that sold.

eBay also has a cell phone app that is very handy for searching eBay for completed and sold items using your cell phone. You can enter search words or you can scan a bar code. With the eBay phone app loaded, at the bottom select "Search". At Search select "Scan" or "Categories". If you "Scan" an item, the scan will return active listings, to get to closed or sold listings, select "Refine" from the top side-to-side scroll bar. In the "Refine" list, near the bottom, are the options: "Completed Items" and "Sold Items".

Beware & Be Cautious - The world can be a dangerous place so use common sense and caution when meeting new people. There are good people in the world and unfortunately there are bad people. When meeting people, especially through the Internet, you should consult authoritative sources for safety considerations, but here are a couple of reminders of some basic considerations. Never go anywhere with someone you don't know. Always meet new people in a public place, during daylight hours, and meet someplace that is well populated with people. Be sure that someone knows where you are going and perhaps even have another adult accompany you when meeting someone you do not know. Never give out your personal information. This is also good advice for when you are selling items locally to an unknown person. We are not responsible for the people that you meet or any incidents or relationships that arise from those meetings. This site is for adults and as adults you are responsible for your own life and how you handle meeting new people. Please be cautious and stay safe and happy.
