Just a short introduction on how eBay works. At the eBay site, you can browse through categories like Handbags & Accessories, Clothing & Accessories, Computers & Networking, Sporting Goods, Home & Garden, Jewelry & Watches, Video Games and much more. When you see something you like, you click on the auction title and view the details, including pictures, descriptions, payment options and shipping information. If you have a clear idea of what you’re looking for, you can search for it using simple keywords, such as “Fitness Tracker Watch,” or using more advanced search criteria that helps narrow the results, such as keywords to exclude, item location, price range and accepted payment methods.

Selling on eBay can be a great way to make money online – you can sell your unwanted and pre-loved items and make money from disposing your junk. But shipping policies and practices can be intimidating to those new to online sales. It’s not as difficult as it might seem, though. Millions of eBay sellers ship packages from home every day and many of them use Shiply, an online shipment marketplace that connects shipping companies and customers. They empower shipping companies to maximize spare vehicle space (thus reducing harmful CO2 emissions by reducing the number of otherwise wasteful trips), all while providing users with the best possible price for their shipment.

When you win an auction bid or successfully sell an item on eBay, the next step is to arrange to ship the item from the seller to you or from you to your buyer. All you have to do is enter your eBay item ID on Shiply for competitive quotes and the quotes will be emailed to you. You compare the prices and read previous customer feedback to pick the right quote for you. Many eBayers use Shiply as this platform has an eBay compatible application. Around 25% of shipments on Shiply are eBay items, imported via their custom eBay accredited tool. After you have paid the shipping company, sit back and relax while your item is safely moved by your chosen shipping company.
