Can anyone help me with the ABCs of selling my creations on eBay? I'd love to start seeling my Hawaiian print clothing on eBay but haven't a clue as to how to do this.

Without purchasing digital cameras or scanners, etc., is there an economical way to proceed? I do know, for instance, that regualr pictures can be developed into CD ROMs for downloading into the computer. But, how do the pictures get onto eBay?

I am totally unaware of how to do this. Also, the wording of the ads placed on eBay seem to follow a certain formula. Does eBay send information of how to enter your things onto their site?

Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Ebay has a disk called ebay exposed you can get it from them for 10.00

There is also a book that I have found valuable called

Ebay for Dummies.

You can get the pictures developed on a disk but I think the best you can do is get a cheap digital camera under 30 or borrow one. I got one last Christmas for 20.00 and that is what I used till my father gave me his hand me down.

You will want to get Ebay turbo lister. It is free from ebay all you have to do is download it. It will help you make your ebay pages and you can upload all your auctions at once.
The more you disaprove, the more fun I am having!

Oops! I guess I should have read further on the eBay site, as they have instructions on getting started. Some of it is quite informative and has been helpful.

Read the ebay instructions carefully and then if you have any questions I will be happy to try and help you. I have been selling on ebay for about three years and have done quite well.....Ebay has a program called turbolister that is a program for setting up listings. It is a free download ..I use it and love it....Let me know if I can answer any specific questions.
