Mummy says… I am very excited to have teamed up with eBay and Mumsnet to share with you just how easy it is sell your unwanted stuff via eBay. I am saving for a very special holiday and decided to find and sell items from my home to start my savings fund.
I chose an unused VR (Virtual Reality) Headset and an unread, new paperback book.
I decided to sell via the eBay app. I have an existing account but haven’t sold anything for years!
The app is super easy to use. I love how I could scan a barcode on the item I was selling (a book) and it loaded all the information about it on to the listing. What a brilliant timesaver.
I could choose to sell it as a ‘Buy It Now’ or as an ‘Auction’ listing. I chose Buy It Now for the book and Auction for the VR Headset.
I love how eBay works out Royal Mail Postage options and the size / type of postage. I could customise this too If I wanted to change the calculations.
I listed my items by taking photos of them in seconds on my iPhone and uploading them to the app.
eBay suggested to me the price the book should fetch based on the last 90 days and I decided to pop it in a Buy it Now listing for £2.99 plus postage.
The VR Headset Auction was for 10 days starting at £3.42 plus postage. Again, this was following the suggestion of price from eBay. If it is unsold, I can relist it again.
Unfortunately my items haven’t sold yet, but that hasn’t put me off at all. I have relisted the VR Headset which was as simple as a couple of clicks in the app, and the book still has a week or so left to sell. I have found the time to sort out some of Pickle’s baby clothes and toys and will be listing them very soon.
If I do have any questions, eBay Live Help is available to help me.
I found selling via eBay so easy and quick via the app – I can also add listings via the main website on my laptop if I want to.
All in all, selling via eBay is so simple, and I can keep track of my items on the phone app. If you have anything to sell, why not start with eBay!
Have you ever sold anything via eBay?
