People are aware about what Ebay is and does. Ebay is an auction website which lets people buy products by bidding on them. If you are the winning bidder you then pay for the items via PayPal or you can choose another payment entirely.
Once this has all gone through you are sent the item and you usually try to leave feedback and let people know how accurate the whole transaction and auction description was.
The home page is where everything happens and if you are logged into your account then you get better options available to you. The first thing about the home page to mention is this is where everything you do is recorded.Now you have information about items you are currently watching, items you are bidding on and items you’re selling.
Your messages you have sent and received are displayed there and also the best bit in my view is the scanner. This was recently added in the last few months and it is a great little idea because if you’re out and about at a charity shop and you see an item with a barcode attached such as a book, you then touch the scanner or barcode symbol and it will load up the camera. You scan the barcode and this will search Ebay to see how much the item is you have just scanned.
Recently I found a book in a charity shop which was 49p and the price on Ebay people were willing to pay was £12.50 so I managed to make a huge profit due to that simple barcode addition.
If you sell items like me you get updates about when people have placed a bid on one of your items but also you get information about when they have paid as well. You never have to do much for this information to come to you.
You get information given to you about when the item ended, whether the person has managed to pay for the product and also information about when an item never sold.
As you can tell there is plenty to do on this application so I am now going to discuss how you can sell products. You do this in a few ways you can use your mobile or go online. The online method is perhaps more likely to get you selling as you feel more safer and by this I mean you worry that using your mobile you might put in wrong information.
What I tend to do is take a picture of the item with my phone and then I go to the selling page and upload the image and make sure that everyone who looks at my item has a really good view of what I am selling. I always put in plenty of information regarding the items such as weight and size.
I have found this application extremely quick there is no doubting the speed to which is works. I am using this application on the 3G system and also a Wi-Fi connection and obviously the Wi-Fi link is more powerful and quicker but when I am out and about the 3G connection with the application is superb also.
I like how you have everything there, there is nothing missing you can even leave feedback as well so you do not need to sit down at night open up the laptop and go searching it is there on your phone, free of charge.
My overall impression is the application is fantastic I am just sceptical and worried about people selling on their phone to me there is more chance someone could fake an item with their phone by taking pictures of items which are not accurate to their own.
