How to buy on eBay

What can you buy on eBay? There are new and second hand clothes, collectibles, kitchen and garden items, pet care, etc. Cars and homes are also sold on eBay. How to get started
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
Buying fixed price items is simple. You simply click on what you want to buy, then pay for it using Paypal or a cheque.

You need to pick a category, then describe your item, and choose a price. Decide if you want to sell by auction, or at a fixed price. Postage is added separately. eBay fees
You will need to pay a small amount for putting an item on Ebay, and a little more if the item sells. If it doesn't sell, you can re-list it, sometimes for free. When your item sells
