E- Bay Shopping 101


Hi Guys! i started shopping on E-bay literally last month. For myself , i kinda had this weird stigma as it relates to shopping on E-bay. 1.I thought it was only bidding , and people would buy a cheap items for 10 times it's worth . 2. I thought it was a rip off  3. I thought i would get old janky items . I'm sure there are people out there who think like me who want to try E-bay but is still "iffy" . The tips below are for you . ( These are based on my personal experience)

Before you become a full on E-Bay Shopper , i would say start small . Buy a small inexpensive item . Times are had and nobody wants to get duped . I started with an item for $0.99 cents from China and shipping was free . 

1. Make sure you have a Paypal account that is linked to your E-bay account . Paypal is the worlds' quickest and safest way to send and receive money. If you are new to E-Bay , they will send you $15 usd and a code to buy anything for $15 on the site  when you just sign up. If you buy an item for lets say $30 , all you do is enter the code and $15 will be taken off.

2. Be sure to put your correct address and be sure to double check. If you are not in the designated shipping regions and you use an International Address through your local courier service , please also double check to see that you have the correct zip code . Sometimes the simplest things can slip us and you are wondering why your package hasn't arrived.

3.Check your "Seller Information" . This is to see the rank of the seller/store. A good score would be anything over 95% anything below that is a gamble ( in my opinion) An excellent score is 99.9%
The seller information can be found to the top right of your page after you have selected your item.

4. Check to see if there are any custom rates that you have to pay once the package arrives in your country. This information can be found in the white section below the "Add To Cart" Box.
