✅TOOLS I USE TO SELL ON EBAY
►Retractable Tape Measure:
Let’s get started! I have an iPhone 5 with a cracked screen. It is no longer of use to me and I’m sure I can make some money on it by selling it on eBay. I’ll walk you through how I list items for sale and just how simple this process truly is.

1️⃣► INSTALL THE EBAY APP (0:32)
If you don’t already have the eBay app, this will be your first step. Go to your App Store, find and install the eBay app. Or click this if on desktop:
2️⃣► OPEN THE EBAY APP (0:52)
Type in whatever item you want to sell, in my case it’s the iPhone 5. An automated list will populate in the eBay app with various choices of your item. Choose the item that best matches the item you are selling. Pro Tip: If you have the barcode for the item you’re selling, scan it into the eBay app!
3️⃣► DESCRIBING YOUR ITEM (01:18)
Select the best fitting description of your item from the automated list. The eBay app will create a draft for you, pulling all the details of your item. You can also manually enter in a title and description. This is especially handy if you’re selling a more obscure item.
4️⃣► PHOTOS OF YOUR ITEM (01:37)
Do not use stock photos for your used item that you’re selling. Use your OWN photos! Remember, more pictures are better than less pictures! Pro Tip: Be sure to show any damages, flaws or ware to the item. In my case, the iPhone 5 has a cracked screen.
5️⃣► FORMAT AND PRICE (3:07)
For most items, eBay will tell you where they think you should price your item. I like to price items at a lower point than what eBay suggests to me. This will get more people bidding on the item. You can also set a “Buy It Now” price to allow buyers to bypass a bidding war.
6️⃣► SHIPPING (5:03)
I typically use what eBay has built in and go with that. Because when you do, you’ll be able to just print a shipping label. Shipping is calculated based on the buyers location.
7️⃣► PAYMENT PREFERENCES (6:04)
I STRONGLY suggest to use PayPal for any and all eBay transactions! If you do not currently have a PayPal account, you NEED to get one. It is not a requirement, but PayPal offers a lot of protections for buyers.
8️⃣► LISTING FEES (7:07)
Most of the listing options are free. However, you will incur a seller’s fee of 10% of the total amount of the sale (for the first 50 listings per month). *Please note, this percentage is regulated by eBay and they are at liberty to change it.
9️⃣► AUTO RELIST YOUR ITEM (7:32)
You will have an option to auto relist your item. If your item happens to not sell, eBay will automatically relist your item for you!
1️⃣0️⃣► ACTIVATE YOUR LISTING (7:41)
Preview your listing. Double Check everything before activating your listing. Once you’ve double checked, click “List it.”
1️⃣1️⃣► MANAGE THE ITEMS YOU’RE SELLING (8:15)
Use the “My eBay” tab to manage the items you’re selling. Here, eBay will show you how many people are watching your item and also the number of people bidding.
1️⃣2️⃣► ONCE THE ITEM SELLS (8:47)
You will receive an email stating your item has sold. Check and make sure you were paid! If you have been paid, you should get an email about this as well.
1️⃣3️⃣► PAYMENT STATUS (9:16)
Once you click payment status and the item has been paid for, you will see what actions you need to take as the seller. Generally, the next step will be for you to print the shipping label. A super easy process!
1️⃣4️⃣► SHIPPING TO THE BUYER (9:38)
In this transaction eBay shows to ship via USPS, so I just go with what they have listed. Print the shipping label and place it on the package. Now, your sold item is ready to be shipped! Once the item has shipped, it will then reflect on your eBay account.
You have just completed selling your item! Congratulations and enjoy that extra cash!!!
