    eBay for newbies

    Post  zeusk on Thu Jun 21, 2012 6:05 am

    This article is mainly for beginners who still don’t know how to begin.

    So first you should do – learn language you’re going to communicate with customers well. If you can’t – forget about auctions. Selling – it’s communication firstly. And you won’t be able to sell anything without communication.

    So you’re newbie, don’t have experience, money. Too bad. Anyway if you don’t have knowing friend you need some money to but accounts, cvv’s, socks.

    I’d like also to add a few words about technical aspects of working with eBay. For successful work will be enough if you’ll have IP address of country you work with, it’s not obligatory to be the same as holder’s city. Also eBay doesn’t check system language, time. I recommend you to make not the GMT -8 time as it has main eBay office. It’s also possible to use yahoo mail server.

    Seller’s account registration.
    Besides common data you’ll be asked to enter Primary telephone, Secondary telephone, Date of Birth. You should enter the number which doesn’t belong to holder but belongs to the same geographical position. It’s not recommended to use “always-busy” numbers – eBay has a database of such numbers and you’ll be asked to verify your number. The same about toll-phre and cell phones (but not always). If you have an account with enough amount of feeds, it’s worth to order a phone number in USA and use it also for communication with buyers – and it could be a point of successful deal. You can use it and for unlocking of your account if it will be temporary blocked.

    After you’ll confirm your registration by clicking the link in the letter – you’ll receive fnctional buyer’s acc with 0 feedbacks. Next press “sell” button to register as a seller. You’ll be asked to enter holder’s and his card’s data. Also you will have to enter the data of holder’s checking account (bank name, routing, and account’s number). Of course we don’t have holder’s bank account. And we don’t need it. It’s enough to find bank name by BIN look up and find routing number of this bank. Further you can enter random number. But if you’ll enter bank account which was already registered before – be ready that your fresh account will be locked on the next day.

    Lots posting and selling process.
    With fresh accounts you can:
    1. Post lots with cheap stuff;
    2. Promote them a little and post more expensive stuff.

    It’s better to do lots posting from 5AM to 9 PM PDT as in another time all law-following civilians are sleeping. The same about time of contact with buyers (phone and email). Sellers themselves recommend to post lots from 5 PM to 7 PM (PDT) as buyers activity is the best at this moment.

    Accounts promotion.
    For accounts promotion you’ll need a little imagination and patiens,
    Remember that first 30 days after registration you’ll have “beginner-mark” near your user ID. Such accounts almost useless for work as it attracts buyers’ suspicions. So this time you can promote it or just forget about it or a month.
    Firstly on most of new accounts new cheap stuff is posting, better “was in use”. Further you buy it from your buyer’s accounts and receive some positive feedbacks. It’s enouth 1-3 such feeds to be possible to post more expencive stuff.
    In case if your lot will be won by real buyer you should work a little more to get rid of him. Of course you can change registration data and try to take some money from him – but trust me, It’s not good idea.
    Also posting s lot of lots at once to speed the promotion is not a good idea, It will have success in case of not popular and cheap stuff, but anyway buyers first look at the last feedbacks and lors which was bought for them.

    Selling from fresh accounts.
    Before you’re going to sell something, you should find the drop or yourself who will accept payments from buyers on his name and address. That’s why before lot posting you should change the info about account’s holder with telephone or without. After this you can post a lot.
