Course Description

Welcome to this course on eBay: How to Buy and How to Sell on eBay. Whether you're looking for an antique or the latest in electronic gadgets, eBay is one of the most likely online resources for you to find what you're looking for. eBay can also be a lucrative home-based business for men or women looking to generate more income, whether you're struggling in a tough economy or you want to make extra money selling your crafts, collectables or even your car.

 

We hope you'll enjoy this basic how-to course regarding buying and selling on eBay. In this course, students will learn how eBay got started and grew from just an idea to a multi-billion dollar business in less than a decade.

 

We'll give you a brief background and tips on deciding what to sell on eBay, how to set up an eBay and PayPal account, and how you can bid for everything from a skein of yarn to rare jade and autographed collectibles to sports equipment to a new engine for your car.

 

Selling on eBay, the importance of creating good item descriptions and taking good photos of your items is covered in this course, as is encouraging loyalty and positive feedback that enhances your moneymaking efforts. The importance of customer service is also discussed in this course, as is a discussion of how best to resolve customer complaints or disputes. We'll also share ideas with you on what to do (and not do) when listing an item for sale or auction.

 

We'll show you how to make and send payments or items for your eBay purchases or sales, and how to make the best use of eBay's seller's tools. We'll wrap up the course with a brief mention of tips for success on eBay, setting up your own eBay store, and how to register your eBay business online.
