  • You make make a researve amount. If your researve is not met than they bid won't count.

  • you HAVE to take it. If you put a reserve price on it (which acts as a minimum price) or a starting price you can make sure it doesn't go for less than a certain amount. You need to be aware of shipping prices too. Good luck!! FEEL FREE TO MESSAGE ME WITH MORE QUESTIONS I RAN A *LARGE* EBAY STORE FOR YEARS!

  • If you want at least so much for your dress set a reserve price, otherwise you have to take what the bids go up to. You can also list it at a "Buy It Now" price and people can purchase it for the price you want. Also, don't forget that you will have to pay ebay a chunk of your selling price as well as paypal (if you will accept payment that way). Also, you will have to pay for shipping the item and you can pass that on to the buyer, but you should set the fee with the listing.

  • can i make it local pick up only?

  • Yes, you can make it a local pick up only but you may be limiting yourself then. A dress is very easy to pack and ship and shouldn't cost that much. Besides, the buyer pays it.

  • I wouldn't do local pick up you might not sell it... charge for shipping and throw in a extra couple bucks for you packing and shipping

  • local pickup is a bad idea. you have to pay just to post it on ebay.... and a local pickup limits you to so few people. you might as well do craigslist or just put an ad in the paper!!
