Why Sell via
Sellers also have their share of problems to face when selling
via the Internet, probably more than buyers: There are a variety of
criminals who surf the auctions, preying on unsuspecting sellers, using
various different scams in order to illegally purchase valuable items
at auction at an artificially created low price. Inexperienced sellers
are easy prey for such persons as they rely solely on good will and
honest buyers instead of shrewd tactics and auction protection.
But for sellers
this is only a very small part of why they would benefit from using
The success of an
auction depends on many factors:
- Knowing at which auction to sell which item: all auctions are different;
while some may be great for selling one thing they may be useless
for selling another. Through extensive studies and research, eBug
has mapped out where to buy and where to sell for different catagories
of products. This allows us to sell at a high price and buy at a low
price, giving our customers exactly what they ask for.
- Timing is also another essential issue: you don´t put a particular item
out to auction if the auction is already swimming with identical items;
on the other hand, now would be a good time to buy such an article.
- Item description is extremely important. At most auctions your description
must be in good Queens English. Grammatical mistakes, spelling mistakes
or just an inability to express yourself in English will NOT be seen
cute to a potential buyer, it will seem incompetent and unprofessional
and scare him away. Buyers are like fish; they can be caught but
they are easily scared away!
- Your photograph can speak a thousand words…but not if you
can´t even make out what you´re looking at! A good picture can double
and treble your eventual selling price. eBug will help you
to make sure your photo is as good as it can be; after all, your gain
is our gain!
- Good communication with potential buyers is also important. They will
often ask questions during the auction period before deciding whether
to bid or not. If you are not home, too busy, sick or just not good
enough to adequately communicate in English then you will simply scare
that buyer away and your final selling price will suffer the consequences!

a few of the reasons for using our unique service; the rest you will
