eBay Your Old Gear

What’s old to you is new to someone else. Get some cash back from cameras you don’t need and make new friends in the process.

Most Important: Communicate

The best thing you can do to get a good price, have a happy buyer and receive good feedback is to quickly answer questions from buyers when they come up. If you have a buyer who seems unresponsive after the auction has ended, don't panic. They may be out of town or have had some other emergency come up. Give them a week or so to get back to you before you seek eBay's help in finalizing the transaction. Good communication during and after the auction will help keep things smooth and can be a lot of fun. More often than not, you'll meet nice people who share your interests. Happy eBaying!
Quick HTML: Text Formatting

When you're typing your item description, you can use these basic HTML tags to format your text. You won't see the results of these tags until you preview your listing. HTML tags are like light switches in that they toggle formatting on and off. For example <b> turns on bold type and </b> turns it off. So, type <b> before the words you want to bold and then </b> when you want to return to plain text. You can also use them in combinations.

<b> Bold text on; </b> Bold text off
<i> Italic text on; </i> Italic text off

HTML tags also let you create new paragraphs or line breaks. Note that simply typing a return in the item description box won't insert a paragraph return—you must use these tags.

<p> New paragraph (includes one line space)
<br> New line (no space)

In addition to these tags, there are many others that let you change type size, color, alignment and more.
You can view all of the HTML tags supported by eBay by clicking the link "Get more HTML tips" just below the item description entry box.
