How to buy on Ebay for new buyers

Ebay has many items to buy, especially hard to find items. I shop there for some of my collectibles. For those new to Ebay, here’s how to buy something on Ebay.

First an account has to be set up on Ebay. You have to be registered on Ebay. On the registration page you type in your personal information, such as your name, address, phone number and email address. You also choose a username and password to use on Ebay. This is how Ebay sets one person apart from another. An email will be sent so they can start shopping for items.

Search for something. Now the next thing is to find something on Ebay that you want to spend your money on. Let’s say you want to find a nice table that looks good in your living room. Searching for it is the first step to finding it. So type in the word living room table or something similar. After pressing Search or Enter a list of tables will be shown from many different sellers. Find the table that looks nice to you and click it for more information. There it will show details about the table like how much is costs, the size, weight and who the seller is. Make sure to look at the feedback of the seller. The seller should have alot of positive feedback ratings. If the seller has very few to no negative feedback then it is generally okay to buy from them.

Buy the item. Click the Buy it Now button and it will go to the checkout process where you pay with Paypal. Login to Paypal and it will show the order details and shipping address. After submitting the order an email will be sent to the seller so they can ship the item. And that’s it. If you live in the U.S. you should get the item in about a week or two. If the item is shipping outside the U.S. then it takes about a month to get the item in most cases. is a great place to shop.
