Qns on Ebay selling...PLEASE HELP...

Postby nani » Sat Dec 05, 2009 9:44 am

HI

Am very new to ebay, would like to know the followings:

1) Inorder to list an item, isn't COMPULSORY to key in the credit card no.?

2) If we do not use any themes or any additional options, we WILL NOT be charge?

3) Can we choose to only sell locally? Transfer via internet banking or COD only?

4) If sell international, do we have to pay a fee?

5) Does paypal link to our local DBS/POSB?

Many thanks in advance, appreciate any inputs.

Cheers

I think if sell international must pay a listing fee and a selling fee when the item sold. Check ebay website for the full details.

Thanks for reply. You answer to no. 1 is NO NEED, then how come when I try to list an item, after all the process, it'll prompt me to key in a credit card no.?

I have tried donkey times to sell on ebay but it was all a wild goose chase.
Nothing materialize after all the hassle and tussling with paypal and ebay.

I have given up.
But if there is a wise one here who can help me set up a ebay account, I will be eternally grateful.

I can try to help, I am using ebay.com.sg No paypal. Everything okay. Able to list my items and closed several deals too but slow...much slower that previous yahoo auctions.

1) Yes you must. Same as the defunct yahoo auctions.
2) When you list, you will see a running total of how much you incurred. If you do basic stuff, no charges...only if you want more frills,there will be charges. First 3 photos free, thereafter charageable. Look at your running total, if $0 means you won't be charged anything.
3) Yes. use ebay.com.sg. Yes that's what I did - IB.
4) don't know..never tried.
5) I use paypal for buying things(not selling). It is linked to your credit card account. Not sure if can link to local DBS/POSB. The advantage of using paypal versus credit card is that the credit card number and personal details are hidden from the selling merchant, the disadvantage is paypal exchange rates are not as good (that's how paypal earns and survives).

Dear Caffelatte,

You mean it is easy to use ebay.com.sg?

I have tried many times and everytime is a torture.
They require me to link my account to paypal.

And all the linkings just doesn't work!

To me it is easy. I set up the account 2 years ago and I don't remember any problem.

Link account to paypal and linking doesn't work ? Can you show me a screenshot of the error message ? (blank out your personal details)

1. Yes, needed as it presumes that there might be times when you might use some listings that need to pay fees. Anyway, I believe it is pretty secure.

2. No listing charge if you do not use certain features that incur fees.

3. If you log on ebay.com.sg, you will be restricted to sell locally. When you log on ebay.com, then you will be selling internationally.

If selling locally, can just make payment mode by transfer thru' ATM, internet or COD. But for internationally, paypal is usually the main mode of payment as Ebay and Paypal are inter-connected. Most buyers n sellers also prefer payment by Paypal.

4. At the moment, selling locally, no charge. But selling internationally, you will be charged a fee if you manage to sell your item.

5. Paypal can be linked to only credit card n debit card.

Sorry, I am usually long-winded one :lol:
