Selling on eBay: Keeping Your Buyers Happy

One main part of succeeding as an eBay seller would be to keep your buyers happy and satisfied with the products that you offer as well as the service you give them. Now how do you do that? There are a few simple ways to accomplish this.


  • Provide a Good Item Description


Many, if not the majority of, cases of customers being unhappy with what they purchased on eBay arises from the fact that they either misunderstood the item description or it wasn’t clear enough. This is a common source of conflicts between buyers and sellers, but it can be avoided relatively easily. Here is how:


  • Upload clear pictures of the item


Avoid using stock photos. It is much better to put up pictures of the item that you are selling that you took yourself. A cheap digital camera or a cell phone cam will do. If applicable, take pictures of the product, as well as everything that will come with it such as accessories, etc. This will give the buyer a clear idea of what they will be receiving.


  • Describe the condition of the item accurately


If the item is brand new and in the box, then obviously it can be sold as “new”. Don’t try to pass off a refurbished item as a new one, as it simply is not. There are times where you need to open the box and use the item to test it or to prepare it for sale. One common example is a cell phone that you’ve unlocked with software. Obviously, you need to take it out of the box and use it for that to happen. While it is still a “new” item, you should include that in the description. Most buyers won’t mind and actually understand the logic behind this. However, if you don’t mention this you may very well one day end up with a buyer leaving negative feedback and saying “OMMGGGG!!!!! the seller said it was brand new but there was a fingerprint on the side of the phone and a spec of dust on the screen! Liar! Thief!!!”


  • If there is some damage to the item or something missing, mention that


If the item that you are selling does not come with items that would normally be necessary or at least useful to operate it, then you should let the buyers know in your description. For example, selling a laptop without a power cord or a gaming console without its controllers. Make sure that this is mentioned in a clear and visible way in your description.


Also, if you are selling an item that has some damage to it or is not fully functional, then you need to advise buyers of this as well. For example, if you are selling an iPhone that has a broken screen (many buyers get these to part them out or to repair them), then make sure your listing says in big bold letters that the screen doesn’t work.

An Overview Of Some “Make Money Online” Ads You Will Come Across – Part 3

“Earn money playing roulette” / “Guaranteed sports betting method” / Various gambling related products.

These are all advertised in a similar fashion. Someone claims to have developed an “ultra secret” method that would let them win at a game of chance (such as roulette or sports betting) and surprise, surprise, they are willing to share it with a “limited few exclusive buyers”… for a price, of course. Many people will (and rightly so), discard such ideas straight into the rubbish bin where they belong. But the language used on the page is especially designed to draw you in and to make you leave your reason and logic at the door. Don’t do that… Let’s analyze these claims a bit:

“Guaranteed to win”. No. Wrong. If there was such a system, then casinos and book makers would have all gone bankrupt by now. There are systems which can, if used properly, increase your chances of winning (slightly, only slightly). But none can guarantee that you will be able to walk away a winner every time. Gambling is a game of chance, not a way to make stable income.

“Super secret, only shared with limited amounts of people”. Lie. Big one on top of that. Their sites have been up for months, and sometimes even several year. Almost all have affiliate programs which encourage other marketers to re-sell the ever-so-secret system to others. Not exactly the type of thing you would engage in if you wanted to keep something “secret”.

And here’s the kicker, ladies and gentlemen. The site owner claims he has a system that can make you rich by gambling (which is super secret, don’t forget). Then WHY, oh WHY is he selling it? Doesn’t he make enough money already from using his system? Why does he care about the $39.99 or $77.77 or $99.97 that he will make by selling his system, if he can simply use it and win thousands every day?

Avoid these types of sites. The “systems” are usually little more than basic strategies you can find for free online or in any gambling book. If not, they are simply variations of the “martingale system” (doubling the amount of your bet every time you lose in a hope to eventually regain your losses and come out ahead) or simple bankroll management strategies that while they may increase your chances of winning, will not guarantee it and are also freely available online as well.

When searching for ways to earn money online, we can easily get sucked into beautiful marketing materials that promise everything. The important thing is not to stop using common sense. If something looks too good to be true, then it probably is. Before spending money on any “system” or “method” carefully examine all the claims and see whether they make sense to you or are simply hype.
