  1. Using Ebay How to buy and sell safely and securely

  2. An online auction site • Items are bought/sold by/to the highest bidder • Pro: • Wide selection of items to buy • Large number of customers to sell to • Typically safer to use than Craigslist • Con: • Reliability of sellers (especially foreign sellers) • Ebayfees • “Insertion Fee” – What you pay to start an auction • “Final Value” – A small percentage of the final sale price that Ebay charges you

  3. Ebay: Buying DO DON’T Be fooled by attractive listings Pay with an unsecured payment form • Use different names when searching for an item • Might give you more results • Ask to see pictures of the item if they aren’t posted • Check reviews of the seller to ensure reliability • Make your initial bid the highest you’d be willing to pay for the tiem • Use Ebay’s communication service to protect your privacy

  4. Ebay: Selling DO DON’T Underestimate the cost of shipping Sell to someone who’s reviews aren’t good Accept an unsecure payment form Ship the item until you have received a confirmed payment • Provide a detailed description • Be honest • Highlight the “positives” • Add pictures • Use a low starting bid • Pack the item with care
