I've only used ebay to buy cheap books for college classes, so my feedback is like 6 (lol). i have managed to sell 3 items though.

Make sure that your paypal account has been upgraded to a business/merchant account. And list small. Try listing the mice and keyboards.
Don't list everything at once.
It's been so long, I don't even remember what the limit was...but I remember there was one, because I created an eBay account to sell iPhones. And they wouldn't let me sell too many of them. I think it was one a week or something.
Also had to put in multiple requests to Paypal so that they'd remove the hold that was automatically placed on received payments.
You're best bet is to take it slow. List smaller items, and build up your feedback. Make sure you don't do a lot at once because if you get claims/bad feedback for multiple items all at once, you're most definitely be suspended.
How much feedback do you have?

What are you selling? Some things have limits on them. On others, eBay won't let you if you're just starting out.

i may have asked this before, (or maybe it was in a dream lol) but how can i sell more. I'm reaching my selling limit and I sort of like doing this buying and selling things? I searched on ebay and it said either verify your info, connect to another selling account you had, or call them. It seems my only option is to call them, but I have no idea what to say since I'm just starting out (and it hasn't even been a month yet)
oh and btw thanks for the help. I have ordered many boxes, and am just waiting for them to come.

Another +1 for the scale. I got a digital scale a LONG time ago and it's come in handy SO many times.
The USPS used to give away "scales" but they were go/no go on weight brackets and sucked big time.

If not sending Priority Mail (or Express, also with free supplies), then yeah, supplies will be cheaper somewhere besides the PO.
OP, for the first shipment, just send it in a Flat-Rate Priority Mail box, unless it will fit in the flat rate envelope and is packed properly.

and once i get it, i take it to the post office to compare the values with the ones on their scale.

I collect that stuff too! Got multiple bags filled with envelopes, peanuts and those air bags (which I can never find at any store)
+1 about the scale.

Here you go.
Order as many envelopes as you wish (may have to do multiple orders though). For free.
As people have already stated, it's not guaranteed that the Post Office will have those padded envelopes in stock. Mine used to keep them, but now doesn't. So YMMV.
I'd just order all the envelopes from that site. They ship it via priority mail and you'll get it within 3-5 days. Obviously you can't use it this time, but good to stock for the future. You can get priority mail tape, envelopes, boxes, everything your heart desires!

If the mouse is sealed in its retail box, I would use padded envelope (if the shipping cheaper than the flat rate or other boxes). As long as the shipping label is printed (or hand-written) neatly and the postage is paid according to the dimention/weight. You shouldn't have any problems.
Normally I just use the packing material(boxes, peanuts, air cushions) from the shipped packages I bought on ebay for the item I sold. Just make sure to black out the existing bar-codes and any markings left from the previous shipping process to avoid confusion. It's not pretty but it saves money and the environment.
A digital kitchen balance is a useful tool if you plan to do more ebay selling in the future. That way you can calculate and pay the postage online and have the shipping label printed out at home and all you have to do is to drop the packages off at the post office (if not using the flat rate box).
|10-05-2012 06:49 PM|
As others suggested, use a (Priority mail) box. If you know the weight of the mouse with packaging, you can compare the flat rate vs weighted costs. Otherwise, just print out a flat rate label and bring it with you to the Post Office.
