I have just this week put my first item to sell on Ebay. And managed to sell it. Not without it's stresses though! I got a personal message making a private bid which was fine but in order to access payment they asked me to put on a "buy now" which I did but in the seconds between me doing so and informing them someone else swiped in and bought it. A tough day's work in the world of shifting your junk by selling it to someone else. The tip was a lot easier and three carloads this holiday leaving a much less junk filled house. And still one room to tackle!
