The Pocket Idiot’s Guide to eBay Motors

Are you as addicted to eBay as I am?

If you’re like me, you know the basics . . . how to register, how to list, how to bid, and how to conduct financial transactions via PayPal. Well, what if you’re selling or buying a motor vehicle on eBay? Are things really that different?

Well, thanks to The Pocket Idiot’s Guide to eBay Motors, I now know the answer.

From the site: “The essential book to read before bidding, buying, or selling. Buying or selling a vehicle on an eBay auction can be complicated. The buyer must know what to look for and what to watch out for. The seller must know about providing accurate descriptions and photos, shipping thecar, and many overlooked details. Both buyer and seller can bid and sell with confidence after pocketing this book. The eBay Motors sales arm has grown rapidly since 2002 with more than 2 million vehicles sold online. More than 70 percent of all vehicles sold on eBay Motors are interstate-and, therefore, complicated-transactions. Essential reading for anyone buying or selling a vehicle on eBay.”

This book gives you detailed instructions on the best way to buy or sell a motor vehicle on eBay - visuals that sell, writing descriptions & titles, listing & managing your auction, signing on the dotted line, physical ownership, and what to do if something goes wrong.

The best part is that a lot of these principles can be used for other eBay auctions as well. Lots of great tips in here!

    I buy SO much stuff on ebay! My dad is obsessed with it too. I’m not a seller though, mainly just a buyer…when I wanna sell stuff I give it to him to do for me! I think the last thing I bought was a new adapter for my laptop, and I’m always buying printer ink on there too!

    Hmmm…my interesting thing I bought off ebay was a Columbia Jacket. I was so excited because I thought what a great deal for $99. Then when I got the jacket it was a fake knock off I could have picked up at a thrift store. I was so disappointed.

    A small thing, but I recently bought a replacement garage door remote controller which has made life a bit easier. You can find almost anything on eBay.

    I bought some postage stamps and magazines and sold some tshirts and household items. ebay isnt what it used to be with all their new fees, changing rules all the time and ant-seller bias. Too bad. used to be a good site.
