Advantages Find Great Bargains, Easy to Navigate, Cheaper Than Ebay, Good Fun
A lot of comments on my ops and in my guestbook contain subjects along the lines of 'Good to see you writing again' and 'Long time no see!'I will admit that my writing on Ciao has become less than usual, and I do have a big confession to make. No, I'm not secretly writing as 'mbmb11isreallyaplagiarist' on other op sites, and no, I haven't rigged up a webcam in my bedroom and am earning megabucks off of hardcore pay per views - (Hmm, now that's an idea...!!)
I have though, found another website (gasp, shock, horror!!) that has recently kept me up into the small hours and has held my undivided attention.I confess - I am now addicted to online auctions, and in particular QXL.com.
QXL.com is an orange and white coloured auction site that allows people to either immediately sell or auction goods that are new, used, antique, collectable, broken or even useless.REGISTRATION
In order to sell on the site you will first need to register. This will entail the usual registration medley we have all grown to know and love (!) such as name, address, email details and the like, but you will also be required to enter a credit or debit card number of your own.QXL takes nearly all UK debit and credit cards, even Solo and Visa Electron.
This is to ensure that people who register onto the site can be traceable, puts off dishonest people from the site and means that fees incurred on the site can be paid easily and without fuss through your chosen card.Once this is done, QXL will send you a confirmation email, which will basically confirm you as a member of the site and will also show your log on details which you will need to enter every time you use the site to buy or sell items.
THE BASICS OF SELLING ITEMS ON QXLSelling items on QXL is a very straightforward and easy process. It is also FREE to list items to sell, although a nominal fee will be charged if you successfully complete a sale.
Along the top of the home page is a button that says 'Sell'.Once this is clicked you are taken to a step by step screen which 'guides you through while you do' the process of selling an item online, such as item description, features which will help sell the item and make it more appealing to a buyer.
There is an added new feature here of being able to format your advert text with font size and colour tools as well as being able to include any html coding you may wish to use.When deciding which category to place an item for sale in, it is advisable to have a good browse of the site and locate where similar items are being bid on or bought the most. You can then select this category from the drop down menu.
You can also opt to have an image of the item you are selling, which can be uploaded from your computer by simply clicking a 'browse' button.Adding an image is free for each auction you set up, with subsequent images for the same item being chargeable at 30p for each extra image.
There are a few extra chargeable selling options offered at this point, which are all clearly shown along with their cost, such as highlighted items, items placed on the home page, items placed on the 'category it belongs to' page.
