Thank you for visiting my post selling on eBay. I will try to show you how to sell on eBay for beginners.
I will then demonstrate an alternative to eBay that I recommend that you consider and which could change your life.
FIRST WHO ARE THEY?
eBay Inc. is a US multinational e-commerce company based in San Jose, California that facilitates consumer-to-consumer and business-to-consumer sales through its website.
eBay was founded by Pierre Omidyar in the fall of 1995 and has become a remarkable success of the Internet bubble.
OPEN AN eBay ACCOUNT.
To open an eBay account, first, go to the eBay home page and click on the “Register” link.
On the next screen, enter your full name, email address and password.
Then submit your information to receive your user ID.
You are now ready to use eBay!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
With an eBay account, you can bid on auction items, buy products immediately, and even become an online seller by selling your own items to people around the world.
After submitting your account information, you will be redirected to a “Success” screen.
On this screen, you will be informed that eBay has automatically chosen a user ID for you.
This is the name other eBayers will know you about – when you bid, buy or sell, other users will see this name.
If you don’t like the username you were given, change it to something you prefer.
START USING eBay.
Felicitation, your account is now activated and you can start using eBay.
An email will be sent to you from eBay with an official “Welcome” message to the email account you have provided.
You will need to provide payment information to buy or sell on eBay.
You will have to enter this information if you are trying to buy, sell or bid on anything on the site.
eBay accepts a variety of payment options but incites users to use a PayPal account.

1-Clear you’re browsing history.
2-Try to access the same page in another browser.
3-Check your Internet or your mobile connection.

Q. How do I change my store name?
R. You can change the name of your store as often as you like.
We recommend that you carefully consider all updates as the bookmarks your customers have created will no longer work after the changes.
You can visit our help page for more details.
Q. Who is responsible for a package lost in transit?
The party paying the shipping label is generally responsible
for any loss or damage that occurs during transportation.
If you have sold an item and it is missing on the way to its destination, we recommend that you work with the courier of your choice to locate it.
If it becomes clear that the package cannot be recovered, a refund must be issued to your customer.
If you have returned purchase and it appears to be lost on the way back to the seller, it will be treated differently depending on who purchased/provided the return shipping label.
We recommend that you contact customer service to have specific details reviewed for appropriate next steps.
Q. What is the difference between a personal account and a professional account?
R. Personal accounts are for occasional purchases and sales on eBay.
Business accounts are a good option for sellers who want to:
. Sell items purchased exclusively for resale.
. Make items and sell them for profit.
. Regularly sell many goods.
. Buy items for their business
Professional sellers can register with a company name that will appear in correspondence and invoices.
They can also benefit from tax advantages and benefit from discounts on eBay fees.
To become a professional seller, you can either change your personal account to a professional account in your account settings or register a new professional account.
