What is eBay?
Did you know there’s 168 million active buyers on eBay at any one time and the site processes 2 billion transactions every day? eBay helps your business to reach customers around the world. So whether you are selling car parts or clothing you are sure to find a buyer on eBay.
Originally starting as an auction site, eBay has since evolved to include a ‘Buy it now’ option as well. Whether you chose to use an auction listing or fixed price listing depends on the item you are selling. If stock is limited and demand is high then we recommend using an auction listing. If you have bulk stock we suggest using a fix price listing instead.
eBay charges a small price to list your item, although this is generally lower than the listing price on similar platforms. Once the item has been sold, a sales commission will also be due which is a percentage of the total sale.
