Syllabus

Learning eBay's History and How to Navigate the Site

Entering the world of eBay can be somewhat like visiting a foreign land. It has its own community, culture, and language (so to speak). In the first lesson, you'll learn all the ins and outs of the eBay marketplace. The lesson will go over eBay's history, the motivations for buying and selling, and how to browse the categories of eBay.

Registration and Searching

Knowing how to search the eBay auction listings for items of interest is fundamental if you're interested in buying or selling goods in the eBay marketplace.

Auction Pages and the My eBay Section

In this lesson, you'll take a tour through the eBay auction pages to help you understand the site's terminology and layout. You'll learn what specifics to look for in item descriptions to help you become an astute buyer.

Bidding and Buying After the Auction

This lesson will guide you step-by-step through the eBay bidding and buying process. Not only will you learn all the bidding basics, but you'll discover the art of bidding, including proxy bidding, bid sniping, and other tips for winning an auction at the best possible price.

Basics of Pricing and Shipping

This lesson will go over the basics of pricing your auction items and discuss setting your shipping rates. You'll learn why pricing your item lower may actually get you more money in the end.

Then you'll go over what supplies you'll need to ship your merchandise, and where to find valuable shipping tools and resources.

Launching Your Auction

This lesson will guide you step-by-step through the process of launching your auction. You'll learn selling fundamentals such as registering as a seller, understanding eBay's fee schedule, and filling out the selling form for your item.

In this lesson, you'll learn the steps you may need to take once you've listed your item. You'll see how to make revisions to an auction currently in progress, how to answer questions from bidders regarding an item you have up for sale, how to cancel bids from unwanted bidders, and how to end an auction early.

Discussion Boards and Your Profile

In this lesson, you'll truly be inducted into the eBay community! You'll discover all the different elements that make up the social world of eBay, such as the discussion forums, "About Me" pages, chat boards, and other eBay tools such as eBay radio and the eBay News Section.
