Have you every sold anything on Ebay? What was it?

I recently sold college books from classes that I had taken last year. I have also sold other books and magazines, some name brand clothing that my kids grew out of but was still in great condition, some antique or collectible pieces and some old coins. It is a good way to earn some extra cash and can be fun also.

  • Just beware, NEVER ship out of the country and always include shipping insurance when you quote shipping prices. We had sold something and the buyer declined shipping insurance. Somehow it never made it and the Post Office ca't track things shipped out of the country until they arrive or something like that. Ebay and Paypal refunded the buyer their money and we were out like $60. It sucked. So now we always include shipping insurance and won't ship out of the country.

  • most of the time it goes fine. About 1 in 10 leave ya hanging tho or give you grief, but 99% of the time its goes smoothly, esp if you have Paypal

  • I have never sold anything, but my husband sold his truck on there. I sell more things on Craigslist than eBay.

  • I sold all my maternity clothes and a few other things. But nothing sold as well as the maternity clothes, and I got a little jaded by the shipping calculator always under estimating the price of shipping, of all the fees and of people not leaving feedback. Then the ones that do, sometimes the feedback doesn't make sense. I had one person rank me 1 star for item as described. I have no clue who that was because no one complained. I have sold now in nearly a year.
