Shopping on eBay is very easy. You need to register on the website, choosing a username and password. it is a good idea to open a Pypal account to pay for anything you buy, though it is not necessary.
Then you can start searching and bidding for sold items, homes being auctioned, or buying goods sold at a fixed price. The auction process
The auction works as with a physical auction - the highest bidder wins the item. If you are not present at the end of the auction, you can make a "proxy bid", which means that you put your highest bid. This will only be used if someone else bids close to your highest price. Otherwise, you will get it more cheaply. eBay is very user-friendly - we explain the process below in greater detail. Buy it now
