Pros & Cons of Selling on eBay
- You are going to get true market value for your wheels.
- No tire kickers- those with cash to buy are going to bid, the rest will move on.
- Your listing will be up for up to 10 days & your wheels should be sold within this time period.
- Selling fees:
Insertion fee $0.50 (per listing, for any duration) $5 for the first $50 plus 8% of the remaining balance up to $1,000 $81 for the first $1,000 plus 2% of the remaining balance over $1,000
- eBay buyers can be fickle & make superfluous complaints knowing eBay + PayPal will typically side with the buyer.
- If you have a set of wheels that you'd like to get higher than market price on, you'll have to be patient and post your wheels on a car forum.
- Timing can make or break your sale, if you're selling on the first week of summer, people are usually out of town on vacation and your exposure will be limited.
- Start your listing on Sunday @ 9:30PM PST
- 7 days
- Start with low bid
- Set no reserve (have a friend with an account that can bid on the wheels if you're worried that the auction will close too low)
- Take very detailed pictures or video over a newspaper or something with the date on it in the event a buyer makes a false claim stating you misrepresented the wheels.
- Create a very detailed listing with any questions you think a buyer could want to know including: offsets, size, detailed pictures, etc.
