    Ebay is horrible and they allow buyers to take advantage of sellers. I sold on there for over 2 years and you don’t make as much money as you think you would after their fees. A waste of time!!

    • renay

      I agree. I dont even go on their website anymore.

    • Heather

      I agree with you, but I can’t find any good alternative that gets as much traffic. If you don’t mind my asking- do you sell somewhere else now that you are happy with? Thanks!

      • Cindy

        There really aren’t any good alternatives. I’ve tried eBid and QxBid, but those sites don’t have enough buyers for the types of items I sell (collectibles, particularly trading cards). My items wouldn’t do well on Craigslist or local websites — I need the national and international audiences eBay has. A few years ago, Google was going to set up its own online auction site, but eBay threatened it with lausuits and Google backed down. If Google can’t stand up to them, I’m not hopeful anyone can.

        So, I bite the bullet and sell on eBay. Yes, the fees and policies are ridiculous. The money I make wouldn’t replace even a part-time job, but I make enough to cover the extras that I otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford on our budget.

    • Allison

      All matter of opinions:) I’ve been on eBay for over 12 yrs and yes, you can find that terrible buyer or seller once in awhile, but if your careful, do your homework… find that ‘niche’ in selling items … then eBay is very good espeically for moms who can work at home. You can really make good money.

      I heart eBay!!

      • LleytonsMommy

        Me too! I sell and buy
        on eBay and I love it!

  2. Jenny

    I’ve just started reading it and it seems like it’ll be an informative e-book. Thanks!

  3. Sharon

    EBay is not what it used to be. I sold on eBay for 5 years. You’re not likely to make a fortune there.

    • Vee

      I agree. My hubby and I have sold on their for years. There are so many people selling similar products from other countries for way cheaper that it is hard to keep up. If you sell handmade items, check out etsy.

  4. Lori

    Much easier to sell on Craigslist. Although you really need to sell local to avoid postage.

    • Savannah

      I’ve never had good luck on Craigslist. I only ever get contacted by scammers on there. I use a local website to list bigger items instead.

  5. La

    Fees are super high on Ebay. Also, people have been winning bids for my items that aren’t paying. It’s happening over and over again so I think after 7 years of selling (just here and there), I’m ready to call it quits.
    If you do sell, save your receipts from the post office with tracking numbers (if you don’t ship via PayPal). I’ve had it happen TWICE where someone won my auctions, paid for their items, and I mailed their stuff at the post office instead of through PayPal. Well, I had tracking, but I guess they don’t see that. They reported to Ebay they never received the product and wanted their money back. What a scam! They HAD my products because I had the proof of delivery, and wanted EBay to reimburse them. Both times after I replied with tracking numbers, the buyers closed the disputes!
    I usually list my items on Craigslist now then link to my personal website that has PayPal checkout. That way everything’s secure, and I only have to pay PayPal fees instead of Ebay AND PayPal fees.
    Wow, that was much longer than I intended, but I do feel better now after venting lol!

    • jenny

      If you don’t mind me asking. Do you put the link to your website on your craigslist listing?? Is that allowed? I’d like to try this.

      I tried selling something on Craigslist one time and thankfully I used an alternative email because I got SOOOOOOO much spam from it that it made my head spin!

      • La

        I do. Your ad can be flagged if you put in any type of personal info, but I haven’t had that happen….yet anyway! 🙂 I link to my website using a hyperlink and sometimes I just spell out my website, and the reader can copy and paste into their browser.
        I don’t usually get spam on the stuff I put on Craigslist, and I haven’t ever received any negative emails or anything from anyone I’ve dealt with on my website. If they make the effort to check it out from the craigslist ad, I think they are genuinely interested. Good luck!!

        • johnathans_jiggle

          did you make your website yourself?

  6. jenny

    I’ve had bad luck with Ebay and good luck with Ebay. I hate the fees. IDK if I’m right or not, but I think the fees went up? I sold my PS3 for $250 and ebay took about $20 bucks in profits from it! YIKES! Then I had paypal fees on top of that.

    I like the personal website idea. I will have to try that. I don’t like people coming to my house to pick things up though, so I’d def. have to still mail things out. Local or not. I’m just weird that way I guess! LOL!

    • Sara

      I never let people from craigslist come to my house. I meet them in a near by (and very busy and well populated) fast food parking lot. No one has groused about that yet, and so far I’ve only been stood up by one person, lol.

  7. Christine

    I have had good luck selling furniture on Craigslist. My husband is always the one that deals with the buyers and we put the item in our front porch so they buyer doesn’t even come in our house.

    I have sold a few things on ebay but it seems like so much work to have to pack the item and bring it to the post office. It’s important to track your item and get confirmation it was deliver. I had a coworker that had a simliar issue to the comment above. She shipped the item and the buyer claimed they never got it and she had to refund the money.

  8. Kim

    I agree eBay is not what it used to be. They don’t really have the traffic anymore, they’re trying to push fixed price listings which is ridiculous. So many fees for them and paypal (which is still them) they’ve done some small things to help but not enough. It’s not a great place for buyers or sellers anymore

  9. angie

    Anyone having trouble getting this book to load I ‘he had several that load with only the photo then almost freeze. My fire. Lol that sounds funny. But anyway many of the free books have loaded just this one and organizing book do this.

    I’ve been an on/off buyer and seller on eBay for about 15 or so years and I’ve always done well on both ends. True, eBay isn’t perfect, but I guess I’ve been one of the lucky ones. My fees lately haven’t been bad at all and actually everything I’ve listed has been for free thanks to a promotion and the fees for sold items are minimal for the service. As a seller I’ve gotten to clean out alot of stuff while earning extra money here and there as a single mom. Thus far that extra money over time has not only helped the bank account for bills and things for my son, etc., but also for things that pass off as “fun” or more expensive items that we don’t always feel justified in buying…some examples over the years being a desktop computer, the laptop I’m using now, an ipod touch, a cell phone, perfumes, clothing, etc. and selling on eBay has also left me with money on Paypal every single year to cover those hard-to-find Christmas items that I can usually ONLY find on eBay.
    Knock on wood, I’m glad I’ve had better luck than some. Craigslist worries me more often than not and I’ve also been spammed immensely from them in the past so I’ll never go that route. We’ll see how things go this year for eBay!

    Hi All!
    Ebay is still the safest way to buy and sell. I have been selling for 10 years now. Yes! It has changed and the fees are higher but it is a great way sell your items and you can still get some great deals.

    I love Hip2Save and I am very Thankful for all the money saving deals that I have found.

    We are planning a move in 6 months and I must sell some of my items and downsize. I will be listing items everyday.
    Please check out my auctions on ebay Seller id chicmommyof2

    Thanks All!

    Hi all
    I’m Suzanne and I agree that Ebay has its pros and cons, but if you do your pricing research, you can really profit on Ebay. And like an earlier post said, you can often list items for free. And great photos make a HUGE difference. I’ve done well there and have been selling for about 9 years. I use Craigslist for large items that are difficult/impossible to ship. Etsy is great for vintage and handmade items. In fact, I have my own shop for my own designs
    I love that I’ve found a community with gals that are like me!! –Suzanne

  13. Sherri

    Yes, ebay has some pros and it has some cons. I have been selling on ebay now for 9 years. The last 2 years I have been selling large volume. When my husband became disabled shortly after I was diagnosed with Graves disease, it became our income until his disability was approved. When we had no other income coming in, I was listing and selling like crazy. Quickly became a power seller. You honestly can make some good money on ebay. Do I ever come across a deadbeat buyer? Of course. However, the good far outweighs the bad. Getting a scale, printing postage right from ebay and shipping from my own front door is the key I have found to safe guard claims that people did not get an item. I would hate to see someone get discouraged from trying to sell on ebay. There really are success stories out there. I am one of them.
