Maybe you already an avid eBay seller and are looking for ways to improve, or maybe you are just starting out and have no idea what to list your products for. Either way, a great habit for you to get into while listing is to first research what similar items are selling for and more importantly, have sold for on eBay.
For instance, say you have a used DVD player you would like to sell. If you look up your model on eBay you can see that others are selling this product (or a similar one) for a range of different prices. That can still be confusing in respect to where you should list your item. Setting it to undercut the lowest price might seem like a good idea but it probably will not get you the money you were hoping for. Plus, someone could come in tomorrow and undercut your price.
The best way to ensure selling your products for the best price is to research what they have sold for in the past and combine that information with what others are selling theirs for currently. Researching the Sold Listings is really quite simple.
Your first step is to type in your product name (as specifically as you can) in the eBay search bar.
Next, you want to scroll down and find the Sold Listing box on the left-hand tool bar and click on it.
This will bring up a list of the items that have sold, showing the sale price, when it sold, etc.
Now you can see what others are willing to pay for this item, which should help you decide the price you want to list it for. You also want to consider how many of this item are currently for sale and what their prices are set to. You can also look at the Sold Listings to see how many sold as auctions versus as fixed price listings.
