Selling on eBay
Creating a Seller's account
In order to sell items on eBay, you must create a Seller's Account. This account is separate from the Registration process. With a Seller's Account, you can create listings for your items (including using pictures) and set up an auction and/or offer the 'Buy it Now' option.
To begin, select the Sell tab at the top of the webpage. It is directly to the right of the Buy tab.
Once you have arrived at this page, select the Start selling button. The next page asks for keywords to describe your item in order to place it in the correct category.
Once you have entered your keywords, eBay will display a number of categories for you to choose from. Select the appropriate category and click in the check box to the left of the category. Then click Continue.
The next screen asks you to choose what type of listing you would like to create. The options are either a simple listing or a more complicated one.
Clicking on the Keep it simple option will take you to a screen to input your information. First, create a descriptive title for you item. Then upload at least one picture. The first picture is free but eBay charges for each additional picture. After uploading your photo, enter the item's characteristics, including size, condition, color, etc.
Then choose the price you would like your auction to start at, the length of the auction, and the price for shipping. Then choose how you want to be paid and click the Save and preview button.
Review your listing. If changes are necessary select the Edit listing link. Otherwise select Continue.
Once you select Continue, eBay will take you to the Create a Seller Account page. You are required to choose a payment method for your listings. Follow the prompts and fill in the necessary information.
