  • Yes they do charge you an insertion fee depending on how much you start your bidding out at and after it sells you will have a small sellers fee to pay but they will take it out of the money the buyer pays. Currently until february 8th they are letting you list for free so take advantage of it. In your account go to selling or sell to start setting up.

  • I am a big seller on ebay...and yes, it costs based on how much you list it for....if you list it for little, it will cost you can also add things to your ad to make it stick out, but you will pay for that need to make sure you factor all those things in before you start selling...try with a few small things and list them for cheap. also, a good thing to do is search for exactly what you're listing and be competitive. example...if you're selling a purse and you find one exaclty the same...list it for a couple bucks more but offer free shipping :) you can get free boxes from and ship straight from your house.

  • You become a member, read the tutorial, and start selling! The website tutorial will lead you right through all the details. Read plenty of listings to learn how to do them. Take the best pictures you can and include them with your listing. You want to be totally honest about an item's condition. The most important thing is to get good feedback ratings from buyers so you gain people's trust. Good feedback ratings mean honest, trustworthy, sellers/buyers. Yes, there are fees to selling. They are all expalined on the website too.
