Chapter 4. Selling > Hacks #33-54

4.1. Hacks #33-54

People will buy anything. The old adage "one person's trash is another's treasure" has never been more true than on eBay. And for this reason, you'll find that people will sell just about anything. From antique pottery to broken pieces of the Berlin Wall, from computers to cell phone batteries, from collectible dolls to human organs, you'll find a rich assortment of junk and jewels at the world's largest flea market.

Selling on eBay is a piece of cake. Just click the Sell button at the top of any eBay page and follow the prompts. When you're done, your auction will start, and other eBay users can bid on it.

The hard part, however, is the stuff eBay doesn't tell you, such as how to get more bids and more money for your items, how to get the most bang for your buck when using the extra-cost listing upgrades, how to hide search keywords in your auctions, how to make deals with bidders, and how to customize your auction descriptions with JavaScript, HTML, forms, and other goodies. The hacks in this chapter are designed to help you get more money for your items, communicate more effectively with your customers, and have more fun while you're at it.

See Chapter 5 for photo-related hacks, Chapter 6 for completing the transaction, and Chapter 7 for streamlining hacks to help you run a business on eBay.
