I got some things (like a ski) I want to sell on EBay. I guess some of you guys have done it. Is it fairly easy to register to sell things? I started to, but they're asking for a credit card number which makes me hesitate. Also, will I need to sign up for paypal or something? Have you had any bad experiences?

Thanks.

I sold a few skis and bought a few, no problems.



Beware of email that looks like it came from ebay asking you to verify your account......

I have about 100 feedback and I have only had problems with 1 or 2 bad ebayers...

Sign up with PayPal. It makes it easier for both parties.

Here's one of my transactions gone bad. Read it. I will never accept Paypal again for the payment of a large item. The buyer can dispute for any reason he chooses and then it puts your account in hold status until the dispute is resolved. It took me over a month. Paypal is fine for small stuff but they will never get my 3% on a large item again. Paypal is guilty until you prove your innocence and I am no crook.

They are asking for a CC number to charge fees to for listings. That part is legit and cool. You can list it with a Certified Check or Money order as payment if you choose but there are lots of fakes out there. I like to see the whites of the buyers eye's, shake his hand and have him hand me one hundred dollar bills. Call me old fashioned but no one ever put a hold ora lein on a stack of hundies in my pocket....

I have sold 5 jetskis, an ATV, a Boston Whaler and a Honda Accord all through eBay along with numerous smaller items. Never had a problem. I will accept Paypal, but often get buyers to contact me and we arrange for cash or another method to avoid fees.

don't worry about putting your credit card info out on the internet.

it's already out there and it's attached to your social security number......

That would be funny, except you're probably right! :(

Ebay is fine, but you need to be careful just like every other transaction.

I would put it on ski-it-again, all the boat websites, and the Nicholl's forum (as well as Craig's List, etc) for a week before I paid to list it anywhere. I have two paypal accounts. One takes credit cards. The other doesn't. The one that doesn't is no fee up to $500 per month if they do direct transfers from their bank.
