Ebay is great to put anything and everything in an auction list to make some money. Although I have found overtime it has become more of a place to sell only popular items and other items are disregarded and don't stand a chance. I guess that is the risk with this type of auction site but you stand a good chance if you know how to promote your product and how to list it. I've just finished 35 listings and have made 50 pounds. I use a plain background to give a clearer presentation of my product and this tends to work. You have to consider how much the item would be worth and what you would like to see the product make. As I sell mainly used clothing I look at how worn it looks. Most items I start bidding at 99p. This is an incentive for buyers as they love a good deal. Other's I have started at ten pounds as they are in great condition and I paid a lot for them anyway. Ebay charge for the insertion fee but sometimes have a free insertion day which is great if you have lots of items. I saved about £5 by using this service. They also take a fee per item after selling as you are obviously using their service. You don't really notice it especially when you have a volume of sales. Just think before you list and check out similar items to yours that are already listed. How much are they selling their product at and what condition is it in. This is sort of price you should be targeting.
Summary: Great to find bargains and to sell your bargains
