The online auction to sell and grab a bargain

Advantages: The best online auction site to sell unwanted things
Disadvantages: Don't expect to make hundreds of pounds
I am relatively new to the whole world of ebay but I have to say in the small time I have been selling on it I have been enjoying the experience and it is always nice to make some money from something that you have hidden away in the back of a cupboard somewhere or for things that you simply don't want or don't use anymore.
Ok, so don't expect to make hundreds of pounds if you are selling bits and bobs here and there, but a good amount of money can be achieved if you want to sell items such as clothing, dvds, cds, books, unwanted gifts etc.
You can sell in one of two ways either as an online auction where it is always best to set a low starting price to entice watchers in and then a buy it now category where you set a price and people can purchase it there and then without having to wait for the auction to end. I currently only use the auction style listing, as like I say you can start at a low price which makes people want to bid and also its quite exciting to watch the bids go up and see how far you can reach with each item!
Setting up an ebay account is easy, and it is easy to add items with most details filled in for you. Try to avoid ebay listing costs as you can get away with listing most items for free, and to avoid them I always put a high postage costs if I want more for a specific item and then explain this in your listing.
To sell things like dvds and cds putting a postage cost of £1.00 is always substancial and sometimes you might even make a few pence on each postage cost also.
Larger items might be worth weighing and getting a postage cost for before listing it.
Overall a great experience and an easy one to sell unwanted items in your house. So dont rush down to the charity shop just yet, see if you can earn yourself a few pounds from this online auction site.
Summary: Great for some extra money when needed
