Mini Chart for Best Course of Action

  • Start the bid small – If you are expecting to fetch 1500$ for your product, don’t ever start the bid at 1500$ or around. You should in fact, start the bid with a very small amount, say 75$ or 80$ for example. This will help that product gain maximum visibility which will in turn enhance the worth of the product.
  • Make the products as believable as possible – Say for example, if you are selling a 4 carat diamond ring, try and include as many inputs of authenticity as possible. Original documents, certificate of authenticity, original boxes in which the ring came, handwritten notes if any (if the item has some historical significance) etc. will help in increasing the value and dependability of the product. This will win greater buyer attention.
  • Describe the product with perfect honesty – This is extremely important when you are selling the most expensive thing on eBay. If there is a scratch on your product please mention it clearly. This will prevent any chances of return request from buyers. you must also offer as many pictures as possible from as many angles as possible to dismiss any possible grey areas.
  • For your own safety

    Stories of eBay frauds are not very uncommon. When you are selling very expensive items, you will have to be extra cautious. Use address verification systems to detect authenticity of delivery addresses are critical. Use fraud prevention tools to detect fraud transactions are just as important.
