Getting Started on eBay
Start by choosing a certain type of product to specialize in (for example, toys, clothes, etc.). That way, you can become an authority in those products and how to sell them effectively. You may decide to expand your product line at a later date.
Setting up an account is easy. Register an eBay user ID and you're on your way. Make sure to read the eBay selling rules thoroughly and check out all the tips eBay offers along the way.
To start, put up only a few items and don't saturate your auctions with too many of the exact same item. The primary goal is to sell your item at the highest price. If you are selling five of the same items, it may be more difficult for you to get a high price. Test out various selling methods and find out what works best for your particular items.
