Tips Submitted by Our Friends
Here are some eBay related tips submitted by experienced sellers.
When making an eBay listing template, include a small photobucket hosted picture, the same colour as your background, so it's invisible. That way, if you need to add an announcement, like you're closed for a while, or to put your last posting dates for December etc, then all you need to do is change the photo in photobucket and it will appear in all your listings.
For stamp sellers - when selling stamps, always scan front and rear and use as a high resolution as possible without interferring with download time. Ensure ALL non-visible faults are noted and be as precise as possible, as stamp buyers can be very demanding!
Certain items such as beads, rocks and stones can be scanned on a scanner rather than taking a photograph of it. By carefully arranging small flat objects on the scanner, you can scan quite a few items in one go, and then crop the images later to make individual photos. You can even put coloured paper behind the item to give a nice backdrop - carbon paper gives a nice blue background.
