Selling children's toys

Like if this guide is helpful

Christmas is coming and I have a long Christmas list to buy for my son! Money is tight for my family so selling old toys is a very helpful way of earning a bit of much needed extra cash! If like me you have a house full of boxes of toys then eBay is the way forward! So here are some tips:
 1. You will be amazed by what sells on eBay so don't chuck things out, give eBay a go! Wait for weekends when listings are free if you have bigger items to sell or sell smaller things for a starting price of 99p which again will be free to list.
2. If you have a lot of the same thing ( eg, cars, figures) then put them in lots or if selling each item separately then offer reduced/combined postage. You will often find someone who wants more than one of something- we found this when selling Thomas tank engine trains.
3. Make sure your postage is realistic- use the postage estimator to see how much an item will cost to send. Don't over price postage as this puts buyers off.
4. Send your item out asap as this will help get you good feedback and a higher star score- I always look at a sellers star rating when buying an item and prefer to go with someone with 100% feedback.
So have a hunt through those toys and get selling!
