Tips for Selling on eBay

I started selling my preloved and some new items on eBay some years ago. Funny enough, I still remember how excited I was to make my first sale. Back then, I was so into selling on eBay. I still am, but not as much. We only have 24 hours in a day unfortunately, and I rarely have the time to list my items on eBay. It takes me ages to get the items sorted, photographed and listed. So I have reduced the time I spend selling online. I stopped selling items on eBay auctions, sticking to the buy it now option, which I find a lot easier to manage. I also wait to sell my entire stock before listing some more.

There are so many articles all over the web, on tips for selling on eBay. I know I have read loads and I found some of them very helpful. However, this post is all about tips I have picked up along the way. So this is purely from my experience from selling on eBay in the last couple of years.

 

Delivery service

Make sure you send your sold items with the cheapest and most reliable parcel delivery service. This is very important. If you use a crappy delivery service, your buyer would most likely get the item late, damaged or it may go missing in the post. Which would lead to a low rating/complaint. So do your research before you decide on which delivery service to go for. There are a couple of reliable parcel delivery companies that offer excellent service. One of them being Parcel2Go, which also offers cheap international parcel delivery.

 

Excellent photos

I take all my product photos with my DSLR. This way I ensure my photos are quality. The buyers need to have a good look at the products they have interest in, and the only way is through the photos. Items with clear photos sell faster. It is also advisable to take as many photos as possible, showing different angles of the product. If there are any faults or signs of wear and tear, make sure you get this photographed as well, so buyers are aware of the true state of the item.

 

Clear Description

Writing a clear description of the items on sale is another great tip for selling on eBay. Make sure you include sizes, colours, design, features, how long you have had the item if applicable, faults/damage, the condition of the item, and any relevant information you would want to know before buying a product online.

Selling on eBay – Buy it Now Option

The jury us still out on this one, but I prefer the Buy it now option to the Auction option on eBay. Buy it Now means I can list items for a price I am happy with, and have 30 days to sell it. If it’s not sold in 30 days, I usually have it resisted for another 30 days for free. I prefer thus option as it is a lot easier to manage. Dealing with bids annoy me most of the time, so I rather sell online this way.

 

Do you run an online shop? How do you find selling on eBay? Do you have any tips to share?

Late Summer/Autumn Fashion

I can’t believe we are almost at the end August. Where has 2017 gone? This year is going by so fast, we only said happy new year some minutes ago right?We say goodbye to Summer in a few weeks, and usher in Autumn officially. I am seriously looking forward to Autumn fashion. There is something so comfy about it. The light layers and booties always look so stylish. I can’t wait to play dress up!

 

The beauty about Autumn fashion is that you can incorporate many of your summer pieces into your new season’s wardrobe, by styling them right. Summer and Autumn pieces and accessories can work hand in hand to create the perfect wardrobe. You may need to get some in essentials in order to pair up existing pieces and accessories correctly. So this Late Summer Fashion Inspo/Wishlist post may come in handy. Here are a few pieces and accessories you may need to get this look right.

 

The Trench Coat

The Trench Coat is one of the most important pieces when it comes to late Summer/Autumn fashion. It is an effortless stylish piece. Great for dressing up or down, and for dealing with the wet weather. I always like to have at least 2 trench coats in my wardrobe. My preferred colours are black and camel brown, like the stunning piece above, by Aquascutum London.  The minimalist design and the functionality of the trench coat makes it an absolute must-have this season.

 

An Umbrella for Late Summer/Autumn Fashion

I am usually not good with big umbrellas. They are usually misplaced somehow, so I tend to stay away from them. However, a small umbrella that would fit into my handbag would be fantastic. It would even be more fantastic if it looked as good as this stunning compact club check umbrella by Aquascutum London.

 

Pandora Bird of Paradise Scarf

I like to have a scarf with me at all times, especially during the Summer and Autumn months. Scarves are fashion essentials, and I can’t be without them. They are also great multi-tasking pieces. I use a scarf for a light cover when it gets chilly. I also love styling it as a head tie or neck tie. This beautiful Pandora Bird of Paradise scarf would be a great wardrobe addition. I love the silk blend and the fact that it is lightweight. When it comes to scarves, the lighter the scarf, the better for me.

 

Club Check Fold Handbag

Now Autumn fashion would not be complete without a stylish bag like this Club Check Fold Handbag.  I love the check design. It would look effortless stylish when paired with the check umbrella above. This stunning handbag oozes class and sophistication. I want it now!

A Honda Civic Car

If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for a while, you would know all about my love for sleek, stylish cars. The Honda Civic is one of them. You would also know about my journey to passing my driving test. I am still in the process of getting that sorted. However, I plan to have that done and dusted before the end of next year.

Why that long I hear you ask? Well, I have wasted thousands of pounds in the last 6 years, taking driving lessons on and off, passing a theory test and having it expire 2 years after, and failing the practical driving test. With all that money down the drain, I am no longer in the position to waste anymore money. So I have to wait until the time is right, and the wallet is ready.

While I am waiting, I have been keeping myself motivated by dreaming of the perfect car for me. I would like a very beautiful car with a sleek interior. Getting a car before I start my driving lessons is what I am working towards. Having the car of my dreams (or close to it) would keep me motivated. I currently have my eye on a few Honda cars, and the Honda Civic is at the top of the list.

Honda describes the new Honda Civic as a car that’s made to impress, and I agree! The stylish sleek design is so stylish, and I like the size. It would be perfect for my lifestyle. I also like the sound of the Honda Civic’s dashboard. The ability to link up to Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ sounds cool! This dashboard would enable me play my favourite tunes on the go, which I am sure would make a great driving experience.

Picturing myself driving this beauty feels great! I have been reading the Honda Civic Handbook on Vertu Motors’ website, and I loving the features of the new model.

I know some people may disagree with the idea of a sleek car being a motivating factor when it comes to passing a test. However, I know I will be more determined to pass my driving tests if I have my dream car parked in front of my house. I guess it is the way I am wired.

Also, I would be able to take more driving lessons in my spare time, and with my own car. Which I hope would quicken the whole process.

What do you think? Are you a fan of the Honda Civic car? Please share your thoughts in the comments section below.
