eBay first time sellers - Mumsnet Influencers share their experiences...


The team at eBay asked us to find 50 Mumsnet Influencers to put the selling site to the test and report back.

All participants were either first time eBay sellers or those who hadn't sold on the site for more than a year. 


What is eBay?
eBay is the world's online marketplace where you can buy or sell almost anything. Whether you're looking to sell your Grandma's antique china collection, buy a secondhand highchair or just update your wardrobe on a shoestring, eBay has something for everyone.

Sellers list items on eBay either using an auction-type format or with a 'Buy It Now' option at a fixed price. In an online auction, the bidding opens at the price the seller specifies and remains on eBay for a certain number of days or weeks. Buyers place bids on the item, with the highest bidder winning when the listing ends. If the seller opts for 'Buy It Now', the first buyer willing to pay the seller's asking price gets the item. 

Buying and selling on eBay is easy and fun. And best of all, you'll never know what you can find!
