Price – Once you have decided on the items you are going to sell, you need to work out what they would be worth to someone else, take a look on-line and find out what similar goods are priced at.  Make sure the goods are clean and not broken.

Selling – When listing the unwanted item for sale, make sure that you are honest in your description and highlight all the features and benefits, if you are unsure, look for a similar goods for sale and take ideas from the description.  Take good photograph’s so as potential buyers can get a good idea of exactly what they are buying.  Check on YouTube and see if there is a video for your item which you can add or you can video the item yourself so as people can see for themselves that it is in good working order.

Communication – Be sure to reply to questions regarding your ad politely at all times, remember the customer is always right! this will help you to build up your user rating and help you to sell other items in the future as you will be deemed trustworthy.
