How to sell on eBay UK

I set up my eBay UK account in 2015 and I have been selling on and off on eBay for many years. Although I took a long break from selling on the platform, I am now back on there and enjoying it all now. It is now a lot easy to list items on there thanks to the smart tools eBay has put in place. I can now easily add photos on the eBay UK app on my phone and list items quickly. This used to take ages years ago so I am pleased to see the company has moved along with the times. It is now a lot easy to sell on eBay.

I currently have about 15 items listed on my eBay account. I sold 2 items the other day and I was happy to see they were wanted by many. My experience with eBay these last couple of weeks has been very motivating. I know I will be selling loads of items on there going forward. At the moment, I am only seeing brand new items. I used to sell pre loved items but I discovered the money I got off the items was not worth the hassle. So going forward it is brand new items only or luxury pre loved items.

Selling on eBay UK can be a full time online business for you if you have an eye for products that will be in high demand and if you understand how the online market works. Here are some tips if you may find useful if you want to sell on eBay –

 

Do your research

Like every other business, a good research is required before you venture into selling on eBay. The first thing to do before starting a home business selling on Ebay is to research products you plan on selling and who is selling it already. This will give you information on pricing and how popular the products you are interested in selling are. A good research will also open your eyes to how to SEO the description and title of the items you plan on selling.

 

Sampling

Once your research is done, the next step is to test the waters in the form of sampling. This is very important so you have an idea of how sales may go before you invest a lot of money in products.

Take great photos

Make sure you take great quality photos that showcase the items from all angles. You have the opportunity to upload up to 12 free pictures so make the most of the allowance. I won’t buy a product if I can’t see it from all angles and if the photos are not bright and clear.

 

Get your pricing right

It is important you get your pricing right.  You don’t want it too high or too low, you want it just right for the product and your time/effort. Also, remember to take into account the eBay and Paypal fees that would be taken off. Many new sellers forget this bit and are shocked to find they are a bit short after selling.

 

Buy it now

I like the buy it now feature, which is why I sell on my items like that. The auction style doesn’t work for me. I have had issues in the past with cheeky buyers so I stopped selling auction style. Plus I don’t like the uncertainty of not knowing what price a product is sold.

It is the Easter weekend, and we are having a very relaxing break. We don’t have any massive plans because we just got back from our 2 week break in Essex and London some days ago. I should write a post about our holiday in the South of England. We had the opportunity to visit many cool places, and the kiddies had a blast. The posts on our trip will be up sometime next week hopefully. For now it is all about Easter. What plans do you have for the Easter break?

It is our first weekend back since our holiday so we have a bit to get done and some good old rest. Rest is always good, and I plan to be getting a lot of that this Easter weekend. The weather has been amazing here in Cheshire. It looks like we will be skipping spring again this year. I remember it being this warm last April and it carried on until September. Let’s see if it happens again this year.

Alala by Aken

For this outfit post, I am taking it back to the roots. I am wearing an African Printed Bomber Jacket made in Nigeria. I really like this piece. The material is really colourful and pretty. I also like the design a lot. The embroidery design finishes off the look really well. It is a very stylish piece, great for the season. The fashion designer – Alala by Aken, did a great job here. I have another piece from this creative Nigerian Fashion Designer, and I will be showing that off in the next few days. So keep reading.

Now back to this gorgeous piece, I found this piece very easy to style. A pair of black jeans, sunglasses and trainers completed the look. This is definitely one look I know I will be recreating a lot this spring/summer season. What do you think of it?

Happy Easter Everyone! Let’s remember the reason for the season.

Outfit Post – Time for Spring Fashion

*PR sample and Affiliate links.

We were away for 2 weeks holidaying in London and Essex. The Kiddies were on holiday and we decided to make the most of the time we had. It was a fantastic holiday. We did all sorts of things and I am only just recovering from all the fun and excitement, which is why I have not been posting as often as I usually do. Entertaining 2 very busy children is a full-time job. I hardly had time to do anything else.

The holiday is over now, and the twins are back in school, so it is business as usual for me now. I took these outfit photos last week in Essex. The weather was good and I had a lovely garden to make use off. So I made the most of it. Time for some spring fashion photos.

The Cream Metallic Stripe Shirt

The cream metallic stripe shirt I have on is a new wardrobe addition. I got it some months ago but only just the chance to wear it, thanks to the warmer weather we are experiencing on and off. I like the top a lot. It is so my style. Easy to wear and style up or down. Everything else I have on is an “oldie”. I really like the pair of jeans I have. It works great with the cream metallic stripe shirt. It also fits like a glove which is just how I like my jeans.

I am excited spring is here at last. The weather is starting to warm up, and the days are now longer. I have many spring outfits styled in my head, and I can’t wait to really take off these layers and style them in real life. How is the weather at your end? Are you excited for spring fashion?
