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?

Knee High Socks – A Comfort Brace by Adam & Eesa

A week ago, my friend called me late at night and told me about a couples themed party. It was knee highs, fur coats and miniskirts dress code for a fabulous feminine look. The theme for men was to be a 90’s hero; hippy glasses, striped shirts, knee high boots and tight pants. I already started planning for the party as it was Friday and the party was to be on Saturday. I got my mini skirt and fur coat from my cupboard but I was worrying for socks as my cupboard was short of knee high socks. I was thinking of how to get a new pair of over the high knee socks in such limited time. I couldn’t compromise on my theme at any cost. Suddenly, I was struck by an idea to go for online shopping, which as you all know is my favourite thing to do.

Socks shopping:

I did browse ‘eBay’ firstly for socks and found many options available on there. The variety of socks was incredible. The funky and cheeky socks in lots of designs really appealed to me. I wanted socks that could turn my entire look into a 90’s dapper style It’s always confusing to choose from thousands of options. However I finally stumbled across the gem “thick stripe over the knee high socks”. It was in black and pink colour contrast combination with Soft Stretch and machine washable fabric. The socks were of the ‘Adam and Eesa’ brand. I had no idea of the brand at that time but was very pleased to see their free shipping service in UK and their short delivery times.

T-shirts shopping:

I wanted my fella to wear the full costume for the themed dinner. As well as socks shopping, I had to buy a T-shirt for him. I searched for a mens work out T-shirts on the Amazon website and found multiple brands there. After browsing many options, I picked the “Men’s Breathable Performance Workout Shirt” in size large.  I ordered promptly when I looked into the details, 65% Nylon, 35% polyester and slim fit in size. I was pleasantly surprised to see the same brand “Adam and Eesa” in the details. At that time, I breathed a sigh of relief as we both now had the full dress code for Saturday night’s party. At that time, I was curious to know about the Adam and Eesa brand and searched it on google.

I explored the whole website and found its clothing collection unique and versatile with latest trends and styles. Adam and Eesa is purely a global lifestyle brand that offers a wide selection of apparel for men, women and kids. I received both my orders on time and was once again impressed with their quick service and follow up.  I found both items (knee high socks and men workout shirt) were of high quality, looked extremely comfortable and classic. I’ve already placed a second order and have spread the word between family and friends about this family run, UK based source of joy, Adam & Eesa Ltd.  It’s a luxury online marketplace for ladies, mens and kidswear. It’s easy to get addicted to the site and it’s a must-visit destination for on-trend fashion.

What do you think of this brand? Are you a fan of knee high socks?

OOTD: Calling the Shots

The title of this post is inspired by the name of the lipstick I am wearing – Rimmel London Call the Shots. I have been incredibly busy these last couple of days, dealing with new clients and life in general. I almost didn’t have the take these outfit photos, but I was determined to find the time, against all odds. I believe when you want something so badly, you find the time for it. No room for excuses this year. I am calling the shots in my life!

Spring is here, and I am loving the sunshine we are getting. It is still more rain than sun, but I can’t complain. I made good use of the amazing weather by getting these photos taken. I hope the sunshine stays.

Every piece I have on is an “oldie but goldie”.  I got this black floral dress last year summer, and I have worn it a few times now. It is dead comfy and so easy to style; one of my current favourites. The brown faux leather jacket is also from last season’s collection, and so are the brown boots. If you are a regular reader, you would spot the black bag and sunnies, I have had them for donkey years, and they still look good.

This is the reason why I like to buy quality items. The more you spend on an item, the longer you have it, that is usually the case with me, especially when it comes to accessories – shoes, bags, jewellery and sunglasses. And that is the reason why I like to invest a little more in them, so they serve me for longer.

I also like to sell my old accessories on eBay, and bags do sell quite well on eBay.
