Guide to using E Bay

  ams4127 08 Jan 12

I've got a few odds and sods to sell so want to start using Ebay.

I have an account with them and also a Paypal account.

Can anyone please recommend a good website/book or whatever, which will show me how to go about using Ebay and any pitfalls to avoid.

FE, if you consider that this would be better in Consumerwatch I would be most grateful if you would move it. Thanks.

How about eBays own guides - accessible via the Sell menu item.

Sorry if that's no help to you but I found it useful once or twice.

FE, Thanks

Thanks. I had thought of that but really wanted some kind of book to have propped open in front of me while using Ebay for the first couple of times.

I'm really looking for people's personal recommendations from their experiences on Ebay.

Pop down to the library and borrow one of the many dummies type guides to eBay, they all say pretty much the same things

Brilliant idea! Thank you.

If you are anywhere near PC World, then look at the books in there. They usually carry a number of books about eBay, one of which might catch your eye than the others!.

Would suggest that you look at eBay's own selling tools on their website.

Thanks. I'll have a look in the library first and, if there's nothing there, I'll follow your suggestion.
