Didn't get everything you wanted for the holidays? Sell your stuff to get it now. Buyers are coming to eBay during this annual shopping peak, so it's a great time to list the gifts that didn't fit or that you weren't over the moon for—and make room for new stuff. Earn cash to buy what you really wanted or get a head start on Valentine's Day. Check for these popular items right now:
Even the most successful sellers don't sell their item every time. Relisting is easy and free. You may need to lower your starting price or offer more reasonable shipping costs. Try adding a Buy It Now price to your listings (it's free up to 50 per month, each month) to catch buyers who don't want to wait. Make sure your title uses relevant keywords and that you write a detailed description. Then relist and watch how making a few simple changes to your listing can help you close the sale the next time.
Earn your buyers' love this Valentine's Day and get your listings noticed. Offer expedited shipping and 1-day handling to ensure your item will arrive in time for Valentine's Day. Then print your labels with eBay and ship!

Pack from the heart: wrap your item in red or pink tissue paper, before you package it with peanuts or bubble wrap, for an extra Valentine's touch.
