How much should I ask for my video game consoles?

When you're selling video games consoles, you will need to price your console within the accepted price ranges — especially for used items. If you're not sure what to price your item at, use eBay's Selling Tools to see what some of your competitors have similar consoles priced at. Keep in mind that when buyers are shopping for new consoles like the Xbox One X or the Nintendo Switch, they are typically looking to get the consoles cheaper than they would if they bought then brand-new. However, if you have vintage video game consoles that are becoming rarer and harder to find, then you might be able to charge a premium price for them.

How many photos should I include to effectively sell my video games consoles?

Two clear photos of the top and front should suffice, unless there is damage. If this is the case, include a close-up of the damage to ensure an honest transaction when a buyer decides to purchase your video games console.
