This is Part 2 of my eBay listing process. You can find Part 1 HERE.
When we left off yesterday, we had just finished writing our item descriptions. Next up is figuring out listing format (read more on that from eBay here) and price:
If you've done your research, you should have some idea what to start your item at, if it is an auction, or list it at as a Fixed Price. I have heard for years that the best time/day to start and end an auction is on Sunday evening. After that, I think any weeknight evening is pretty good with Friday and Saturday nights coming in last. Even with so many buyers on eBay mobile, day time ending times aren't the best idea. Lots of us are at work or busy with our kids. My friend missed a daytime auction item last week while we were chatting! If you are doing your auction listing during the day, you can choose when to have it go live. eBay charges an additional .10/item for this option.
After that you check payment method, shipping methods (which I've talked about before). After that is the final box on the page "Add other Details." You can find out more about Buyer Requirements here. Here is what mine are set at:
Block buyers who:
- Have received 2 unpaid item strike(s) within 1 month(s)
- Have a primary shipping address in countries that I don't ship to
- Have 4 policy violation report(s) within 1 month(s)
- Have a feedback score equal to or lower than -1
