Um anyone with Ebay experience? (5970)

post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 
I don't know if this is the right place to post this or if I am allowed...but I am in desperate need of some advice on how to sell a graphics card on ebay. specifically my HD 5970 as it seems this is the prime time to sell it.

What I want to know is, what is the best way of putting this thing up for sell. I've had it for about a year, it runs well, haven't had stability issues.

What steps should i take, what options should I check, how do I package it?

Set it up on a table with a piece of paper with your eBay name written on it. Take a pic like that, & one with the original box, to post with your item.

It will take you through steps for filling out info, for your card, it's actually pretty easy.

The first thing you'll need to do is set up a PayPal account, to link to your eBay account. Thats also easy. You only need a checking account.

Yep, & I think you need a rep of 36 to sell something here.

Thanks man, and after that? will it gives me an auctioning option? what is a good price point to start auctions at and is it wise to put an item as Non-Refundable?

Ebay is pretty simple and easy to use. They get a noticeable percentage of the final sale though, plus what it took to list the auction in the first place. non-refundable is what I always do; i always verify what i'm selling is how i describe it. They can't dispute what you put down on the auction page. Additionally, link your paypal to your ebay and make buy it now require immediate payment. Set some buyer requirements so you don't get a winner whos in bumf*** egypt (Happened to me often before I set up that). I've got it set now so that people can only buy my stuff within US48.
