Be Complete In Your Descriptions
Try to anticipate questions people may have, and be complete in your description of your item. This will save you the trouble of answering email questions from potential bidders. Don't forget to specify who will pay for shipping, and enter the location of the item in the description field.

Add Your Photo
Show off your item with an image or photograph and let potential buyers see your item with more detail. If you are adding images to your auction item please do not allow the original size of the image to be larger than 500 x 500 pixels, so that it will conform to the site standards. Coding the image is simple, all you have to do is input the web address of the image (url). This site does not upload images, you must have them at an existing url for the auction scripts to refer to.

No " " or other special characters

Provide Terms For Sale
To properly assure that you receive payment for the items you sell, include your payment method and shipping terms in your listing. Further, you may want to insure the item before shipping, and you may want to accept more secure forms of payment (such as credit cards), where you are able to verify the buyer. Finally, if you are unsure about a buyer, you may want to use an escrow service.

Be Courteous To Bidders
Remember that, as a seller, you have additional responsibility in any transaction, since you are advertising a particular item for sale, and are receiving money for that item when you make the sale. Also, please remember that your actions reflect directly on

A little bit of courtesy goes a long way, especially via e-mail. Simply taking the time to write in complete sentences, with a salutation and closing, can make a big difference in how you are viewed via e-mail. Be sure to treat everyone with the courtesy that you expect to receive.

Contact The Buyer
Be sure you take the time to talk on the phone with the buyer, especially if you have any discomfort about your e-mail exchanges with this person. E-mail communication is sometimes awkward, and it may be difficult to judge another person's personality, honesty, etc., without having an actual conversation person-to-person.

Also, many people don't read their e-mail every day, so you shouldn't assume someone is ignoring you just because you haven't heard from them in a while.

Request for Credit
We have just implemented a "Request for Credit" feature for auctions that have bidders but do not pay or contact you.
To request a credit:

1) Log in by clicking on the link labeled "My Account" on the left side
2) Select "Request a Credit" under the "My Auctions" header
3) Select the auction number of the auction that you are requesting credit
4) Fill in the form and hit submit.

Note: This feature only applies to auctions started after April 15th, 2002. The auction must be closed for at least seven days and no more than 60 days. A request is not a guarantee that you will receive credit. We will contact the highest bidder and request an explanation. A credit is given based on the explanation from the highest bidder.

Advertise your item in the appropriate newsgroups, bulletin boards etc. AOL Classifieds (for AOL customers) is another good spot.

Make your descriptions as accurate as possible as to condition and add as much technical information as you feel necessary. You can also upload pictures if you have that technology, or if you have access to a server where you can put a picture, you can put a link to it when you register the item.
