Ok i have tried to help you to sell but i think some of you need help buying too!
First up you want to buy something that you have been unable to purchase elsewhere or you cant get to the shop etc etc. Ok no problem thats what Ebay is for!
I would say research your item first see what price roughly they are selling for from various sellers (just put them on watch - you don't have to buy it), also research the various P&P prices sellers are asking - then you will have a good idea on how much you are willing to pay, also check what payment options they offer. Next check the sellers feedback out even if its 99%+ - CHECK IT OUT! (please see my other guide). Read all terms & conditions & their return policy, if anything doesnt look right or you dont understand message the seller, they will be happy to help! If the seller doesnt respond remove the item from your watch list & start investigating again, untill you are happy with their terms, conditions, return policy, P&P & price. Only then are you ready to start bidding.
Work out the max you are willing to pay including P&P, put the item on watch (unless you have already done so) & wait till around a minute before it ends (you have better chance of winning if you do it this way) then bid you max amount. If you win it Congratulations! If you do not go back to your watching list & bid on another that you are happy with. Just continue in this way till you have the item you want, at the price you want. Some sellers may send you a second chance offer at your max bid if they do check its legitamate first - ie email & my messages will have the same offer if its only in your email its a fake just delete it. If its in both Bingo you have your item at the price you were happy with!
Now pay for your item in what way the seller has stated in their listing. Ask the seller to let you know when they will post the item, then you will have a rough idea on how long it will take to get to you.
I wish you all the best in your bidding & buying!!!
I hope this has helped some of you if it has please click YES at hte bottom of this guide.
Regards for now,
How to buy the sensible way!
