I was just wondering. I had two on there and one had a watcher and neither sold? Do you list again or try something else?

There are so many criminals on ebay right now.I listed my PSP game for sale.It was bidded for up to $150.The winner sent some foolish e check to me on paypal that didn't clear.You need to be careful.Try and check the reputation of the buyer by checking the feedbacks from other members and dont let anyone with a very low feedback bid on your good

somebody You can put in your TOS that you do not accept e-checks, and you can also set your auction for immediate payment required. That way your auction won't actually end until that person pays.

You can relist but you should take a look at your auction and figure out why it didn't sell. examples...Add better pics, better description, is your price/shipping/handling too high, are there any negative things written in your auction. If you just relist you might have the same thing..watchers no bidders.

Take a closer look at your competition on ebay for similar items; especially, use the closed listings feature (that will let you know if similar items are selling or not). If they are selling, compare your listing with the ones that sold. Are you giving enough information? Are you listing in the right category? Are your prices too high? How about shipping? If the items are selling, then try revising your listing to make it more appealing and then relist. If no one is selling similar items - people aren't looking for that item. It may be the season; the item may not be "popular"; or it may just be an item that people don't need all the time so they rarely look for it. Hope these tips help.

If you really want to sell things on ebay to make actual money, I recommend opening a store. It costs $15/month, BUT then it only costs pennies per item -- and I really mean pennies!!!! The items stay listed for a month and are then automatically relisted for you. There's no bidding this way, so you need to fix a price when listing and there's the option that the buyer can make an offer (which you can accept or reject). So, if you have 4 or 5 items it would cost about the same as a store to list them at auction for 7 days. Also, if you then list one item at auction, a bunch of your other items will appear at the bottom of the auction page driving traffic to your store. Good Luck!!
