The joys of eBay

I am a bit of a rat pack. I find it difficult to throw away anything. Some malicious people would even call me a hoarder, but personally, I think it is a self-defense mechanism against waste and pollution.

All my kept items are in perfect working condition, and they could easily end up in a garbage dump. But I could not resolve to do this… then somebody introduced me to the Joys of Sex eBay.

Do you want to get rid of something? Post it on eBay!
I was a little skeptical… and above all totally ignorant of the process… but still willing to dip my toes in brackish waters.

“Don’t touch any of my weapons without my permission.”
“Well, there goes my plan for selling them all on eBay,” Clary muttered.
“Selling them on what?”
Clary smiled blandly at him. “A mythical place of great magical power.”
― Cassandra Clare, 

Yes, a mythical place of great magical power!
If you want to buy or sell anything, grab your computer and head for the eBay bazaar. But be prepared. First, open an eBay account (free of charge) and a PayPal account linked to your bank or a credit card institution.

Then, bravely head to eBay… and case the joint.
Let say that you want to sell a camera… First, look for a similar offering and pay close attention to the asking prices. Keep in mind that you are not here to make a killing, but to unload something that has been gathering dust in your closet.

When listing what you want to sell, attach at least 2 decent pictures of your offering, and ask for a price that is equal or lower than the lowest asking price.

Within minutes you will get some offers. But don’t jump on the first bid, unless the buyer agrees to pay what you asked for. Wait at least a day to respond to would-be buyers and then accept the best offer.
But beware of offers that are too generous; they are not genuine. And above all, don’t ship anything to Nigeria or Thailand. Sharks have been swimming increasingly close to our shores lately.

Then, print the shipping label, stick it to a box and bring it to UPS.
Shazam! your stuff is on its way to its new home!

If you successfully want to sell or buy anything, above all, be accurate and truthful. Your selling reputation depends on it.

Salaam! See you at the bazaar!
