    Selling ski on Ebay - Need tips

    I am thinking about putting a non running ski on Ebay. What fees are involved? I have sold parts on ebay before, but never a whole ski.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    the Ebay fees should be listed in the help section. I think there is a 40.00 listing fee for PWC/Boats/CARs trucks....ect.......it may have changed. Sometimes you can catch sales on listing items.

    I would:
    • Post plenty of pertinent pics
    • Clean the craft well B4 taking any pics
    • Disclose as much history about the craft as you can
    • List whether it has any faults/flaws
    • Mention if you are willing to meet a certain distance
    • Mention that the buyer is responsible for shipping fees/taxes ect...
    • Mention if a trailer is included or not
    • Any aftermarket items need to be disclosed.
    • Sellers with a feedback rating of ZERO or a Negative need to contact you before bidding.
    • All sales are AS-IS

    I have found on ebay that honesty sells! Be truthful like RX951 says disclose the faults and flaws it shows character and will help people trust you.

    I have had several hundred succesful eaby transactions.

    There will be a final value fee. I think it was $50 on the boat I sold, it is a preset amount unlike the goods auctions which are percentages.
