As a seller your top priority are your customers!!!. If you treat any potential/actual customers with respect and courtesy then you are 99% ish there in terms of making a sale. Always answer emails promptly, and remember to be polite and welcoming!!!
Only sell quality goods and DO NOT LIE about any aspect of the item you are selling for example:
1. If the item is used then clearly state this!!
2. When selling DVDs always state the REGION that the DVD belongs to i.e.
REGION 2. DVDS will only play on all European/UK DVD players.
REGION 1. DVDS will only play on American/multi region DVD players.
Always include a picture of the item you are selling and do not use a stock photo. Buyers want to see your item as this helps in the decision making process.
When describing your item, be colourful and praising of it(within the boundaries of being truthful about the item itself) and make it sound appealing!!!!!!
ALWAYS LIST YOUR ITEM IN THE RIGHT SECTION OF EBAY!!!!.
Do not go overboard in terms of Jazzing up how your item will look. EBAY offers a host of additional extras that will cost you money, and for small/inexpensive items, it just isn't worth it, as it only takes away from your profit margains.
Always sell your item even if you feel that the price you got is not what you wanted. Remember that all feedback is kept on EBAY and if you have a lot of NEGATIVE FEEDBACK then you simply will not be able to sell your items on EBAY.
I recommend that if your item is valuable then you set a fixed reserve price so that you can get the minimum that the item is worth. Remember to be relastic in your valuation as you will only put buyers off if you set the RESERVE PRICE to HIGH!!!!
Finally!! IF you have an area of expertise that you feel confident in writing on then please do so(in the form of an E-BOOK) as there are a lot of people who will gladly pay for expert advice on a whole range of topics. Please check out the E-BOOK section on EBAY and if you have 99p then purchase anyone of these E-BOOKS and you can judge if your E-BOOK is up to the required standard!!!!
Finally I do recommend that you get a PAYPAL account as this is the best way to insure that you get paid for any items that you sell!!!!
GOOD LUCK SELLING!!!
I hope I have helped!!!
