Give Complete Item Descriptions
Try to anticipate questions people may have about your item. Write about the item as if you really want to sell it. Be as descriptive as you can, this is where you should really try to get the interested viewer's attention. Specify any additional costs to the buyer such as shipping and insurance. Don’t forget to include the location of your item, also mention your preferred shipping service and whether or not you will ship internationally.
Include Item Pictures
You can increase sales by showing off your items with good quality pictures. Experienced Sellers will agree it’s not hard once you know how. See our "List Your Auction" Tutorials. If you need more help, check out Tips On Your Item Pictures. We would like you to sell lots of items regularly at OnlineAuction.com, so we gladly share our knowledge.
Include Terms for Buyers
To avoid misunderstandings, include complete payment method and shipping terms in your auction listing. Always let bidders know how to pay for the item. You may also want to give the buyer the option of insuring the item before shipping.

A Little Courtesy Goes Far
