How to Read an Item Listing

Before we do any bidding, let's take a look at a typical eBay item listing to see what you can find out about the item and its seller.

Each listing page includes several distinct sections, each of which is equally important—which means that you need to take your time and read through the entire item listing before you place your bid. Don't skim; read carefully and pay attention to the details. If the seller mentions a known fault with the merchandise (in the Description section) but you gloss over it, don't even think about complaining when you receive the item after the auction, fault and all. It's your responsibility to read—and agree to—all the information in the listing.
