  9. hmmm. is this good or
  10. hmm...I saw this this morning...and I was thinking last nigth to sell some stuff on ebay. Never have before.

    anyone know a place I can go (online) to read all about "how to sell on ebay"? like an "selling on ebay for dummies" type thing?

    i guess I just don't get the 'fees' thing. when i do sell, I'd like to provide enough pictures at least...I really think that's key when selling. (do you upload to ebay? link from somewhere else? see...i'm such a newbie!)
  11. Don't forget, this promotion only applies to items start at $9.99 or less. I don't think I will list my name brand bags starting with $9.99. eBay still charges reserve price listings.
  12. Regarding pictures, you could open a free account with Upload your photos to there and link them to your listings.
  13. Of course they have to screw those who use a reserve! $10 reserve? Are they nuts?
