Tips & Tricks #3: How To List Your Cards On Ebay

I have been selling on Ebay allot lately and I have tried/seen many different ways to list cards.This is how I list my cards on Ebay so I get the most search on my cards.







Step 1
You want to open a new tab on your browser and type in ebay.ca or ebay.com (this may varie depending on where you are).

Step 2 

Make sure you are logged in, then click " Sell " in top right corner of your screen. After the page is loaded you will see this " Enter a UPC, ISBN, or keywords that describe your item. ". usually put hockey card, but that is up to you. After you put what you are selling, click on Start selling. 



Step 3

Now this is where you create your listing. In your title you want to the Year (Long), Manufacturer, Set, Sub-set, Card #, Player Name, Card #rd to (If there is any), Team, Year (Short).

Example:

 2011-12 Panini Calder Contender Auto #222 Erik Gubranson /800 Panthers 11-12

After your donne the title, enter the the condition the card is in. If the card is Graded enter the graded info in to the fields, but if it is not just go down to the field that ask for the year and then put the year of the card in. After you finished that go and select what the attributes of the card (Ex: Auto, Rc). Then select the team your player is on. I usually don't put the player because the chances are the player that you want is not there. Next upload a nice clear photo/Scan of your card because that makes your listing look better and it gets more people to look at the card. Your description is very important because that is where you put everything else that you did not put above. You want your description have these things in it: How you ship, Shipping Costs, Title again. 

Example:


You are looking at a 2011-12 Panini Calder Contender Auto #222 Erik Gubranson /800 Panthers 11-12

Shipping: 

3.00$ to Canada 
4.00$ to USA 
5.50$ to International

+ 0.10 for every other auction you win

All cards will be shipped in Team Bags, Top loaders, Penny sleeves and Bubble mailers.

Payment is due 3 days after auction has been won.

Also feel free to vist my other auction and if you have any question, Please send me a message

Next you want to put the price of your card. When using auction style,  I put the auction at 0.99. But when you using Buy it Now go look to see what the same card is selling for and then i put for 10-20% more and make sure to Best offer on. The buyer may just offer you the same price what they are selling and i will take that offer, but if they buy it for 10-20% now that is even better.

For shipping you want to do is calculate the cost of how much it cost is you to ship. But the lower you shipping price the more views the card will get. Then just fill out what you charge for Canada, USA and international. Then you click continue, your listing preview will appear and you click list item.

That would be all for today and thanks for reading
