The Complete Guide to Selling on eBay as a Freelancer by Aron Govil

This is a complete guide to selling on eBay as a freelancer. Entrepreneurial individuals are now turning to the benefits of selling on eBay, creating an opportunity for small businesses and freelancers.

Accept payment

The first thing buyers will want to know about a seller is: How do I pay them? eBay has created an entire system for accepting different types of payments, including PayPal and credit card options. You can also choose to be paid through services such as Amazon Payment or Bill Me Later. It’s up to you which method you use; however, PayPal remains the most widely accepted online payment option on eBay so we recommend using this unless you have another preference with a customer. Set your price once someone decides they want to buy an item from you, what do you charge? There are two main pricing strategies: charging a flat rate or bidding. The best strategy depends on the item you’re selling. If there is a set price for an item, go with that. For example, if your aunt makes ceramic roses and sells them at $5 each, then bidding would not be ideal because it’s hard to guarantee what someone else may spend on the same product. But if your neighbor is reselling her used smartphone, you should definitely bid because the price of smartphones varies greatly depending on when they were purchased and how much memory they have.

Setup your eBay Account First things first, let’s get started by creating your own eBay account. Don’t worry about filling out every information field; in fact, most fields aren’t required in order to sell items through auctions.

That being said, here are some recommended steps in creating your own account: Aron Govil

Choosing a username

This may seem like an easy step, but the username you choose can say a lot about who you are and what you do. You’ll want to use your name or brand as much as possible in order to attract people to your eBay business. For example, if your name is Joe and you’re selling used smartphones, ‘Joe’s Used Smartphones’ would be a good username for your eBay account. If it’s already taken (which is very likely), try switching out words or using initials instead of full names.

Creating your identity

The next part of setting up an eBay account involves creating a positive image for both yourself and potential buyers; this includes uploading profile pictures, logos and banners for your eBay business. Keep in mind that these images will appear whenever you’re making a purchase or checking out, so make sure they are trustworthy and easily viewable on mobile devices.

Choosing payment methods

The final step of creating an account covers the options you have available when it comes to accepting payments. This is entirely up to you; however, PayPal continues to be accepted by more buyers than any other online payment method. You can also choose standard check or money order formats if PayPal isn’t preferred by potential buyers.

Sell Something! Now that you’ve got your very own eBay account, it’s time to list some items for sale! If you haven’t already done so while building account, choose a username that reflects your business. Starting an eBay auctions is easy, but there are a few important guidelines you should know before listing an item:

Create your title

An excellent title is one that immediately catches the attention of potential buyers; the best way to do this is by stating what’s included in the purchase (for example, ‘Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone,’) and including any pertinent information like colors . It may also be helpful for you to include any models or styles that might attract specific customers. A pleasant-sounding title will help make people more likely to want to click on it.

Price your product

How much does it cost? Should it be up for bids? All of these questions need clear answers before posting items for sale; if a customer has any hesitations about the purchase, they may choose to go with a different auction. The price you select also depends on what other people are selling similar items for; even if you have the lowest starting bid, it will not attract attention from potential customers if your competitor is selling exactly the same thing for cheaper.

Sell your product!

Now comes the somewhat nerve-wracking part – waiting. If you can keep yourself busy until an auction starts, great! But if not, there’s nothing wrong with checking back on your listings every so often. Remember that eBay auctions run on first come first serve, so bidders will be deciding between your product and others available through various sellers.

Conclusion by Aron Govil:

eBay has been a popular online marketplace for several years, so it’s likely that your potential customers have heard of this resource. With the proper knowledge and resources, you can be up and running (and making money) in no time.
