How Does an eBay Auction Work?

If you've never used eBay before, you might be a little anxious about what might be involved. Never fear; participating in an online auction is a piece of cake, something tens of millions of other users have done before you. That means you don't have to reinvent any wheels; the procedures you have to follow are well established and well documented.

note

Before you can list an item for sale or place a bid on an item, you first have to register with eBay. There's no fee to register, although eBay does charge the seller a small listing fee to list an item for sale, and another small transaction fee when the item is sold. eBay doesn't charge any fees to buyers.
