    Ebay:
    I have a few TFs I have to put on ebay since I cant get anyone to buy them here on the board at the same cost I paid for them. Can anyone give me some pointers as to how to go about doing that? I prefer to use paypal and was wondering what your experiences were trying to unload stuff on their site. I said in the ad that I would remove bids from 0 and negative feedback ebayers just to weed out some of the crap.

    I personally wouldn't recommend removing bids from 0 feedback users; everyone has to start with that first transaction.

    You can try looking at completed listings for the items you are thinking of selling to get a ballpark idea of a price for them. It's also your call on whether to use an auction or BIN format; I personally prefer the Buy It Now format and an added Best Offer option.

    Are you sure these are items that you'd be able to expect back what you paid?

    Yeah, one is MIB and doesnt go over $20 and the other is an 08 BB that shouldnt go over $10. I'm not asking for an arm and a leg here.

    I agree with cannabisprime. Removing bids from zero-feedback users is just stupid, since you're only shooting yourself in the foot by sabotaging a bid war. Even you had zero feedback at one stage. Does that mean all sellers should have alienated you?

    I agree there's no point in deleting bids from zero feedback people. Besides they drive up the price early and probably don't know about sniping...which all the old pros...with hopefully good feedback...will do.

    So much for denying 0/- bidders to participate. I'm already getting more money than I paid and there's still three days left!
