Click on the \"Submit Item\" link in the upper right corner.
Find the appropriate category for your item.
Browse through the auction directory to the category that best matches your item. Look for similar items within that category. Be as specific as possible in selecting the correct category -- accurate placement will help potential bidders find your item.
Fill out the auction submission page.
Once you've decided where to place your item for sale, you need to fill out the submission page.
Here's a quick list of the information you'll need to provide on the submission page:
Upload a photo - A clear image of your item encourages bidders. Here are step-by-step instructions for adding a photo to your auction.
Enter a title - Describe your item in a simple, straightforward way. All uppercase letters, multiple exclamation points, and excessive sales hype in your title create problems; they will be automatically removed. Clear, accurate titles help buyers find what they're looking for.
Enter a description - Provide facts and details that answer common questions. How old is the item? What condition is it in? Where did you get it? The more information you provide the happier your customers will be.
Enter your sales policies and shipping information - Choose the payment and shipping methods that you prefer. These policies will be posted on your auction for bidders to view. If you would like to post additional information about your payment and shipping policies, we suggest you do so in your auction description. If you are willing to ship your item(s) internationally, be sure to check the box next to \"Check if you ship internationally.\" This lets international bidders know that they can bid on your auction.
Choose quantity - Auctions are typically for one item. Auctions with a quantity of identical items (e.g., 50 Furbys) are called Dutch auctions.
Choose your starting price - This is the offering price for your item when bidding opens. We suggest that you set this as low as possible to encourage bidding.
Set the length of your auction - You select the number of days that your auction will be open for bidding (from 2-10 days).
Select additional selling options - Customize the following selling options as auction preferences. You also may select any of these features at submission time:
