ebay selling advice please

THought I'd ask here as there are a few ebay tarts on the forum.

I've bought on ebay, have a paypal account etc, now wish to sell something.

What do I have to do? Will want payment through Paypal

Thanks.

When you are listing your goods to sell you will be given a choice of what payment method you prefer. As you have already got a paypal account I don`t think there is much more you need to do apart from tick the box.

I've put an item up for sale here http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?V...&rd=1&rd=1

Should it automatically appear in the listings for the category I put it in? If you look above the ad it shows the two categories the bike has been put in. But if I navigate to the first category and scroll through the bikes, my one is not there. I haven't checked the second category yet. Do I have to do something special for it to show in the listings? As things stand, nobody will be able to find my ad!

ah! Thanks for checking and for your other help SB. In an email I just got from ebay after registering as a seller it mentioned it takes a little while for a new item to appear in the lists, so I guess I checked too soon. Thanks again.

I you're selling something that you will send through the post, how do you know in advance what to specify for the postage costs?

I think you tend to go by what everyone else has put for postage. So if you are selling a paperback novel, see what others are putting down as postage for paperbacks. If you put too much noone will touch you with a barge pole.

The only other thing to do it weigh the parcel on your home scales and look on the post office website for postage costs http://www.postoffice.co.uk/portal/po/ju...d=19100176

I'm not perfect, but im so close it scares me

On the postoffice site there is a special section for ebay sellers

http://www.postoffice.co.uk/portal/po/ju...d=35300684

don`t forget to take into account the packaging when weighing what you are selling
