Since June 2nd, 2010 I have been selling on eBay and it has been quite the learning experience.
I started using eBay out of necessity. While planning our wedding, I ended up buying two wedding dresses for my wife and she only ended up using one. I turned to several places to try to sell it: Craigslist, Facebook and more than one wedding planning forum. In the end, eBay worked, where all other online markets failed. Since then, I started using eBay to sell goods to people in the United States and the rest of the world. Here are the 5 top things I have learned from selling on eBay since 2010.
