How to Sell a Car on eBay


How to Sell a Car on eBay. Broaden your market and sell your used car
the modern way by auctioning it off or selling it on eBay. You will need Internet access Bank account
or credit card Camera Vehicle description VIN number Vehicle sale documents and sale
or reserve price (optional). Step 1. Create a seller’s account at motors.ebay.com,
and provide a bank account or credit card that your seller’s fees will be deducted from. Gather documentation such as the vehicle title
and a bill of sale early, so you will be ready to complete the sale. Step 2. Determine the value of your vehicle using
an online guide. Step 3. Take digital color photos of the car from
every angle. Don’t forget photos of the interior, odometer,
and any blemishes or defects. Step 4. Decide if you want to hold an auction to sell
your car to the highest bidder, or set a fixed sale price. Keep the price low enough to make a sale. For auctions, eBay lets you set a starting
price at which bidding begins, and a reserve price, which is a hidden minimum price at
which you are willing to sell. It is possible to revise your pricing requirements
while bidding is active. Step 5. Create a listing on eBay Motors, including
a description of the vehicle and its condition, the VIN number, and photos. Be honest about any major problems with the
car. Disclosing the information up front will save
you and the buyer from an unhappy experience later. Step 6. Make your terms of sale clear in the listing. Describe acceptable forms of payment, deposit
requirements, and delivery or pickup options. Step 7. Check in frequently on the My eBay page to
monitor bidding activity, contact potential buyers, and respond to inquiries once your
listing is active. Step 8. Contact the winning bidder when the listing
expires to close the deal and arrange payment and transfer of the vehicle and title. Congratulations! Did you know In 2004, a man got bids for his
ex-wife’s wedding gown on eBay for more than three times its original price by posting
a photo of himself wearing the dress.
