ebay Buyer's Guide - A Free ebay Auction Give-Away

Everybody likes to get free stuff, so why not offer your ebay auction listing visitors a free ebay Buyer's Guide as a bonus just for viewing your listings.

 A potential buyer has clicked on your ebay auction listing; they saw the basic details: current bid, time left, and shipping costs, and they are heading to your item description with one of two things in mind - the current bid is within their price range, and they want the item details to see if they want to bid on it, or, the current bid is too high and they want to see why it is so expensive.

Get ebay Buyers to Your ebay Auctions Online , A Hubpages Hub

Get ebay buyers to your ebay auctions online with a Hubpages Hub.

One of your main goals as an ebay seller is to get people to click on your ebay store, or visit your ebay auction. Selling things to ebay buyers can be profitable, but you have to get them to your listings first. Unless you have the most unique item in the whole world, that everyone must have, you need to do more than just wait for ebay buyers to find you when they search for something.

One way to do this is to go off-site and direct buyers to your ebay auction or ebay store. Traditionally, savvy sellers have been posting on blogs and in forums, leaving their hyperlink signature behind, as a way for readers to click-through to their auctions or store. But, there is another way, one that search engines love – short articles.

Content articles related to your items can be anything from a product review or how-to article, to interesting articles in essay or pictorial form. It can even be as simple as a short bio for one of your listed items. And you can put links in these articles. A big benefit of using this method is

How to write your Terms of Service for auction listings.

How to write your Terms of Service for auction listings(TOS)

Your terms of service (TOS) are an important part of your ebay, (or any service), sales plan. Your "TOS" will tell your buyers what you expect from them, and what they can expect from you. A well written Terms Of Sservice will give your buyers confidence in their transactions with you, a badly written TOS could send them running away.

Your TOS should cover these main areas of your policies:

  • Payment: how you want to be paid, when you want to be paid, and what payment methods you accept.
  • Shipping: How you ship, and when you ship, and any other specific shipping details
  • Returns: Do you accept them, and how do you accept them.
  • Problems: If there are any problems, how do you handle them.
Your terms of service will tell your buyer the "rules of the game" when dealing with you. You want your TOS to be clear and short, and friendly. Put yourself in the buyers shoes. Would you rather deal with some that writes; "Bid with confidence - Returns accepted", or someone who says "No returns ever - all sales final no matter what"?

How to write an ebay Auction Listing - Item Description

An ebay auction listing description section will not just describe your item, it should give your viewer reasons to buy! The item description should contain all details relevant to the item, and also key phrases that will motivate them to want to bid on or buy your item. The description layout should be easy to read, not so cluttered that the reader has to search for the details they need.
