Have you ever sold anything on Ebay? If so, was it worth the hassle?

I have sold a bit of stuff and for the most part all was well. I seem to be waiting for feedback and some people are slower than the man in moon and what happens is you eventually end up without a feedback. I think there are people here as well that forget to rate our posts and comments and I think that's unfortunate. It really only takes a minute. My worst experiences with Ebay is buying. I have been taken to the cleaners and back on quite a few items. It's crazy. Take Care my friend.

i have sold a few things while trying to use ebay...i mean i think it is a good way to make some quick money if you really have waht they want because i sold a few video games and it was fun because i only paid a few buck per video game and i got a little bit of profit and i was able to beat the games so that was a really good time for me and i sold some of my cds for like twenty something dollars and i thoguht that that was a good deal... jhl930

Hi- Whoever told You you can't sell books on ebay is wrong..it's one of their busiest sections..I've bought and sold books there myself..if you have a Paypal account here for Mylot,you're 80% of the way to be an ebay user-It uses paypal too..You set up your ebay account with your paypal email address,then start buying or selling-you take or make payment using paypal,and the item is delivered,or when the person buys your item,you get their address to send it-you can choose which countries you want to deal with,eg,Europe,UK,USA,World..if selling,it's better if you have an idea how much postage will cost the buyer,so you factor that ito your price..when the person wins the auction,thy make the payment via paypal,so it's paid for and in your account before you mail it..You just have to send the item-registered delivery works best-they have to sign on delivery,so no hassle with Items that "didn't arriive"..there's a feedback rating system like Mylot too,where the buyer gets a chance to rate the transaction with you,and you get one for the buyer..good luck!

thanks so much for your kind and well informed answer, I did later think about it but it would not be worth it for me to sell my books, you see I am an author it would not be used books, and it would just cost too much in the long run to do that.

It's been more than a couple years since I sold stuff on Ebay. I didn't make a ton of money, but I made the equivalent of a part time job. I sold personal stuff - all my country decor, fabric, and stuff like that. I went to the post office three times a week, spent a lot of time making up the listings and taking good photos. I know my hourly wage was low, but at the time, it was very worthwhile to me. I'm sure there are a lot of sellers on EBay who made a great deal more money than I do.

I sell on eBay all of the time. I mostly sell my homemade toffee. It is totally worth it, and it has never been a hassle for me. I have made several hundred dollars in the last few months selling my toffee on eBay.
