By: Vandana Sharma

Is this your first business venture – if so you must be excited just at the fact of being your own boss with no 9 to 5 job – that is if your Ebay business is going to demand your full time attention to keep the pennies coming in?

No doubt you will have questions due to you being in the infancy stage of running your own Ebay business. Your best approach at this time is to study behind the scenes. You can do this on the Ebay site it self. Every thing you need to know is at hand to help you become a success with your Ebay business.

Treat this business like that of any other e.g. like setting up shop because that is exactly what Ebay is the largest online shopping market where people trade there wares. Computer and internet access is all that is needed to start up and of course a product or service. Ebay is risk free. What are your chances in succeeding with your Ebay business – well sheer determination and commitment is a couple of important factors needed for success as an Ebay seller. Don`t try and re-invent the wheel. Follow Ebay`s guidelines and a good chance you will excel.

If money is an issue when starting up – then consider selling bric and brac from jumbles sales or car boots. Remember this is your Ebay business so what you sell is entirely up to you; just be sure to research your product to see if there is a demand for it. Consider shopping wholesale from Ebay itself – personalize the items. This could take a bit of time but well worth it if a sale is in the pipeline.

Tell your friends of your Ebay business – they can help by donating items that you can put to good use. Friends can be useful at times like this in assisting you with paperwork till you get to know the ropes.

Once you have established in your mind what your Ebay business is all about and what wares to sell then it is time to open shop. You have a queue of hungry buyers so now it is time to let them know of you and your product. Promote your product with good quality snapshots- this will give your customer a clearer picture of what they are buying. How you word your description on your listing can increase the possibility of more interest from other shoppers.

In the Ebay business pricing items can cause problems – if you are not sure why not go into the forums and ask other sellers for advice. Be reasonable and fair with the prices and you may well get a lot more interest and custom from your window shoppers.

When listing your item make sure you follow the guided instructions and all should go smoothly. Options are available for how long you want you`re listing to run on the Ebay auction, this once again is up to you – the longer the bids are allowed to continue at auction then the bigger bank balance.

Organize yourself properly in how you deal with payment methods and shipping. Take note that the popular way that most transactions are finalized on Ebay is through PayPal.

Wisdom is the greatest guideline you could ever uphold.
