Halloween is a frightfully good time for selling on eBay—a top shopping destination for costumes, Halloween accessories, and decor. Sell last year's costume to buy your costume this year. Reenactment attire, wigs, uniforms, and other items that could be used for costumes, are also popular.
Plus, the holidays are right around the corner. Check your closets for any of these hot holiday items including men's and women's sweaters, scarves, jackets, and jewelry, digital cameras, smartphones, kid's toys (action figures, dolls, stuffed animals), and video games. See our complete holiday hotlist and list today.
Long-time buyer and new eBay seller, Camille Marcojos (user ID: dabbey.m) listed a pair of heels she no longer wore. She was pleasantly surprised to turn a $30 profit. But listing her four-inch pumps would prove to be even more lucrative—by listing when she did, she won $5,000 in eBay's List-to-Win Sweepstakes.
Camille majors in biology and interns at the Latino Family Literacy Project, a program that helps Latino parents advance their children's language skills. A full-time student, she's also a collector: "I love shoes, and my collection is growing all the time." That's what led her to eBay. Read more.
The number of purchases using mobile devices is expected to double in 2012 and the eBay Mobile app's been downloaded over 100 million times—two great reasons to make your listings look good on mobile devices. Here's how:
Shipping has never been easier! Print your Priority or Express pre-paid shipping label right from eBay and get discounted postage. Plus, your buyer gets the tracking information automatically, letting them know their item is on its way. Schedule a free package pickup, and you're all set!
Lots of pictures make for a great listing, and now, up to 12 pictures per listing are free. Plus, starting October 1, at least one picture will be required on every listing when you list, revise a listing, or relist an item.
Carefully consider how you price your item and set a Buy it Now price to attract buyers who don't want to wait for your listing to end. Starting October 1, there will be a fee for ending an Auction-style listing early after it's received a bid, so be sure to let your listing run to the end.
List FREE offer for up to 50 items per month. Additional optional Feature fees apply when used. 9% final value fee applied to the total amount of the sale—including the cost of the item, shipping, and any other fees a seller may charge (for example, engraving or gift wrapping), excluding any sales tax. Does not apply to eBay Store subscribers and Vehicle categories on eBay Motors. See full terms and conditions.
