saleing on ebay

Has anyone ever sold on ebay? I have tons of baby clothes and some miscalleneous items that i would like to get rid of to make room for the next baby but i live out in the middle of no where so a yard sale really isn't practical. But i am not sure hoe wbay works . I mean do i need a seperate account at the bank. How do you accept credit cards? It seems confusing. Anyone know?

  • well you need to set up a paypal account. when someone buys something, the money goes to your paypal account. its a separate account from anything else i think. you need to take pics of everything so people can see what it looks like. then you put the pics on the selling part of ebay. its pretty self-explanatory. it shows you everything you need to do. and it does it step by step so its pretty simple

  • I sell on ebay and I have a paypal acct. I have them take out their fees from my Paypal acct. Paypal takes care of everything even for buyer's payments.

  • Not being rude just clarifying. Saleing isn't a word. Selling would be to sell something online. A sale is something that is discounted in price, to sell is to have another person purchase your products for profit.

  • i sell alot of things on ebay my husband teases me calling me the ebay queen. it is very simple they walk u through everything. and u dont have to have a seperate checking acc# u set up with the one u already sign up for a paypal account and when people pay it goes right in that account and then you send for a paypal debit card that you can use just like a credit card anywhere. ive been doing it for three years sometimes u will do great and somtimes u wont but dont get discouraged. (tip) baby clothes sell really well if they are still in good shape.and to me it is fun.if u need anymore info i will be glad to let u know.
