Even if your main interest is in selling, it helps to have some positive feedback from purchases you make on eBay. Every transaction helps build your reputation on the site. If you have a reputation as a responsible buyer, it will help when you go to sell.
Some people will not conduct transactions (either buying or selling) with brand new members. Don't take it personally - they are just being cautious. Find someone else who will, and treat them like gold! The most important rule is to communicate, communicate, communicate. Be prompt, be polite, and always leave feedback.
Thanks Red, I am going to go over and read all of that stuff. I am very interested in selling on ebay. I did some selling years ago, before things got so expensive to post on there. I am sure some of it will come back to me.
One question, do you know if you can post your off ebay website in your ad or article (description)? I would think not, however I do see some of that going on.
They generally don't want anything posted in a listing which helps a transaction occur outside of eBay. If you have an eBay store, there are links shown to help customers find your other items for sale. You couldn't just refer to a non-eBay website.
This is for 2 reasons - anything done outside of eBay does not fall under their buyer protections, and of course, they want the listing fees.
That's what I thought. I know some folks always do some rule breaking which is probably what I saw!. I think I just want to sell a few items to see how it goes and then go from there. I love my cubits and cubits family so I want to keep most of my time here.
I'm off to bed now. I've got to get some work done really early tomorrow morning before things heat up. I've been praying for the constant mid-90's humid weather to break, but tomorrow is actually expected to be worse at 97! (I meant break downward. Sheesh! ) It's early morning or nothing for outside work these days.
41 days above 100 here ... and we have at least 10 more in the forecast before this breaks...
I buy ebay... to often the plant I buy there never bloom right ( named Iris and DLs ... ) maybe we need a "good" seller list here also? there are a few sellers there that after a few years of fighting I have found are amazing and there are those I will never ever buy form again.
I like the idea of a favorite seller list, as long as we're careful to keep it positive. Feel free to start a thread listing your favorite sellers, and what type of items you like to buy from them.
Do you find that a seller's eBay feedback matches up with your own experience with the seller? In other words, is the feedback system working well?
Also, do you think that a plant seller might be getting lots of positive feedback from novice plant buyers - good communication, sent quickly, plant grew, etc., but might fall very short for a knowledgeable plant collector because it's the wrong cultivar, or had a virus or such that a novice might not realize?
