I sold my video ipod on ebay and it went very quickly. Did you have a picture and pay for bold? That always seems to help. Also, start your bid at .99cents, this encourages people to start bidding. You can select a reserve so that you don't have to sell it unless it goes to that reserve or more. All the extra prices are well worth it, don't think of the intial price think of all the extra money you made. Hope this helps

Thanks for your suggestions.. did what you said as well.. but i don't wanna sell it at a loss cos it's new.. and the reason why i'm selling it is cos i wanna get the white instead of the black that i bought cos white was out of stock.. but if i cannot get the price i want, i will just keep it =)

Craigslist has a "barter" section.. Post something that says, "swap ipod black for white" something like that, plus there are several barter sites out there.

It is hard to say too much because I don't know how you have placed it. Does it stand out from the others that are also being offered at present? What about your starting price, is it higher or lower than similar ones being offered? Good luck and hope that you have now managed to sell it at a good price. :)

Good luck with selling on Yahoo Auctions and I hope that it goes well for you. I have noticed here in Australia that a lot of sellers are including statements like "if you are from xxxx country, then do not bid because it will be removed". Seems too many have been caught out in the past by these scammers.
