Um anyone with Ebay experience? (5970) - Page 4

post #31 of 53
Thread Starter 
No I've never sold on ebay, I just want to make a decent profit on the card...its painful that i bought the thing for liek 700 bucks last year and now i'm trying to sell it for about 550 or more since thats how much they are going on ebay.

is it smart to list things on both ebay and craigslist?

Scroll to the bottom of Ebay site page, click Policies, then click Selling & Selling Fees, and start researching by clicking Selling Basics first. You will be prompt to check out other links regarding sellers but do take the time and talk to live support...if you decide to sell your gpu on Ebay.

I would rather put it on Craigslist and take cash only. Figure a way out to prove to the buyer it works. Don't mess with EBAY unless you want to jump through hoops and run the risk of getting scammed.

ebay is generally alright for selling stuff as long as you don't accept unconfirmed shipping addresses and low feedback. And always a good idea to stay within your region. I always ship within north america only

All of this is good advise, but if you are selling on Ebay and the buyer gets it and a week later does not want it he can get his money back and Ebay will charge your Paypal account once item is returned. Just got finished with this with my Xbox 360. Sold it to a guy for 80 bucks, he won another the same day, guess he decided to keep the other one, he filed a dispute 1 week later without contacting me, said item was not working, won the claim, sent it back working fine and I sold locally for $100 bucks, and put the $80 back into my paypal account. So that worked out, but if he would have sent me back a non working console i woulda been P.O.'ed. And he could have and Ebay would not have done a thing, because thats why they refunded him in the beginning. Buyers are the only ones with rights on Ebay.

Funny...I've never been scammed

For the OP...If you feel uncomfortable with Ebay (especially since this is going to be a 1-time sell), you'll be better off using craig's list...That's my final

DO you mean people scam you? eBay doesn't charge you unless your item sells.

I had sold (2) 9800GTXs a few months ago on Ebay. 1 of them decided to kick the bucket. He tried to file a dispute but Ebay and PayPal refused to put it through...Know why? Cuz I had stated clear on how long I had owned the GPUs, had proof from a warranty registration on when the GPUs were purchased for backup, had made it clear they are used, and had the Ebay box checked NO RETURNS and even had in big fat letters NO RETURNS..ALL SALES ARE FINAL.

As for the hundreds of comic books I've sold, I've never had 1 comic book returned or a dispute filed on me (and I personally grade the comics myself) and that's with stating NO RETURNS...ALL SALES ARE FINAL.

Just gotta know what you're doing and be prepared for the potential backstabbing buyers that you might have to deal with

I've been selling on Ebay for 12 years, Sold a few GPU's there also,
100%
Most important IMO and always worked for me.
Never Auction it for less then you want. Buy it now,
Don't use buy it now option. To many dreamers hit that button and never pay.
There's also common sense rules to live by selling there also.
Sellers can't leave negative feedback any more.
That GPU you have will sell in a heart beat on there.
Be truthful in the Add, Take a pic out side the box also.
I sell on there 3 -4 times a week. You can PM here if you like.
To much to type here, Glad to help you out.
State everything clearly as he said. Its important.

Yeah...I was so pissed when Ebay took that away from the sellers but I've gotten use to that now.

For the OP...I always list my stuff for bid starting at .99 (by no means I'm advising you to do this) for 7 to 10 days. Surprisingly, I end up selling it for more than I expected. Both of my 9800GTXs had sold for $80 a piece and they were almost 2 years old but my overall rep plays a factor too.
