Here's a complete checklist for selling on eBay. For details about each step, see Sell an Item – Getting Started.
1. Become a registered eBay.com.au seller.
Provide us with valid credit/debit card or bank account information.
Let us know how you would like to pay your seller fees.
Make sure your Feedback profile is public.
2. Sign up to accept
one of the required Safer Payment Methods:
PayPal, Paymate or Merchant Credit Card.
3. Research your item.
Make sure your item is legal in general and okay to sell on eBay.com.au (See prohibited items policies.)
Select a selling format. (such as Auction-style, Buy-It-Now fixed price, and Classified Ad.)
Search active and completed listings for listing category and price ideas.
Calculate postage costs and look at other ways you can optimise your postage.
4. Create your listing.
At the top of any eBay.com.au page, click Sell. You may be asked to sign in.
Create your listing:
The first few times you list, you may be asked to choose a listing form.
Based on the category you choose, you’ll be asked to include important details about your item.
For items in other categories, you’ll be asked to fill out item specifics such as the item’s condition, size, or style.
Complete the listing form.
5. Manage your listing.
Check My eBay to see how bidding is going.
Answer all questions you receive from potential buyers.
6. Wrap up with your buyer.
If you used Checkout or receive a payment notification from a buyer, respond quickly to payment notification and post the item as you specified in your listing.
You can also use Checkout to send the buyer an invoice.
If you didn't use Checkout, contact the buyer directly by email or phone.
Important: Contact the buyer directly if you haven't heard from the buyer or received Checkout or payment notification within three days of your listing's end.
Leave buyer feedback.
