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.
thanks I will comply. I'm gonna take some pics tomorrow and get some other stuff done, i shall PM when i'm in the middle of doing it. looks like I need to talk to ebay first for some advice

One other question, is it smart to put the card up for sale on multiple websites?

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.

Yep, i couldn't fathom it myself,
It brought every scammer and Drama story to the place and now... They take a percentage of our own shipping cost. But...I always do free shipping now. Hoping OP watches his back, And some of this info helps him along...But hey, Stuff still sells lol

Sure is.
Craigslist is a virtual selling farm, I think 80% of what I've put up there Sold.

^alright so to reiterate, free shipping but factor in the shipping cost into the starting bid price...?

also start off at the price I am comfortable with selling and let the bids do the work?
I was thinking like 400 USD as a startup for the 5970?

Stuff sells on EBAY, but these days it's like racing a car. Usually if you are experienced and careful nothing happens. There is no guarantee though and unlike a car in a freak incident ALL the "safety" mechanisms are stacked against the seller. OP good luck with the sale, you should be fine with the advice given.

Yes to all and 400's a good start IMO,
See what others are going for, Do some fast research.
Base from there.

Just did some quick looking, at 400 it should sell or go up a bit.

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



Tis true
Kinda irrelevant to the example I gave with the Xbox 360. I can understand them not siding with the buyer on that. But for the example "I" gave, Ebay was crap, and their stupid staff gets jobbed over too easy by buyers trying to scam. He showed them the system was not working, and filed a "item not as described" claim. Either he didnt have the video cable connected right, or used another, non working system but Ebay wasnt smart enough to figure out.

Im just saying, if you sale on Ebay, buyers have all the rights so be careful. And if a seller really wants to get over on you, there is nothing you can do. We all cover are butts with the stupid "no returns, all sales final" and all that BS but that doesnt matter in the long run.

PS, I did get my negative feedback over turned at least, and made 20 bucks in the long run. Woulda been sick that after all these years I get a negative feedback. Guess it really doesnt matter cuz I'll never sale there again anyways.

when you sell on Ebay the charge you a small fee for the pcs you upload and then once it has been sold they charge you a small percentage of the sale of the item.

for first time sellers it is a pain in the arse but once you get to your 3rd item it is easy.

i have sold a few items there and it is fine.


advice:

rip the card out give it a good clean up. befor you send it away to the client take a video of it playing a game or a stress test to back your self up.

do no tuse there postage services... it is a rip off. use your local one even if it is the post offfice and put insurance of the postage item as the corier services sometimes do break the item... it has happened to me and i am glad i had insurance.

when you add insurance add it on to the postage fee when you advertise the said item.
