I know right now in the united States it costed me 40 cent to post something for a bid. If You are selling and auctining then it is a litte more.

Oh! I think I can afford the cost. And I may sell things like ebook then I may save the cost for shipping.

Instead of ebay, I'd suggest you use lulu.com b/c you can sell just about any type of book, dvd or cd. You can even sell calendars of brochures.

That sounds like an interesting site...I've never heard of it before, but I will look into it!

Lulu.com seems to be good. But in terms of traffic, I wonder how would it be compared to ebay. If I put something here to sell, will it be exposed to many targeted visitors?

You aren't going to need anything right away, because they allow you some time to pay your fees. But remember that it is going to cost you money to list the item, and they also make you pay for a certain percent of what the item sells for, so you are going to have fees. Just be aware of that before selling something that will only sell for a couple dollars. And make sure in the auction you include shipping costs, because you don't want to have to pay for the shipping.

I think the most idea plan is they allow me to earn something from sell first and then charge me a percentage of the selling prices. I think this could only be true in my dream.
