How to be a successful ebayshopper


Heels bought on ebay for a fraction of price.

Etter forespørsel fra leserne lager jeg en liten ebay shopping guide. Når det gjelder å være en fornuftig ebayshopper, handler det mest om sunn fornuft.
1. Gå til ebay og registrer deg som ny bruker. Lag deg en brukerrid og passord, så har du en konto.
2. Så spør de deg om du vil lage en paypalkonto. DET vil du. Paypal er sikkert, du viser aldri betalingsinfo til kjøperen og det er gratis for kjøpere. Her trenger du en emailkonto og du lager et passord. Deretter legger du inn mastercardinfo og adresse. Etter det får du en email som du må bekrefte. Når det er gjort, er du klar for shopping.
3. Når du skal shoppe. Sjekk ALLTID selgerens feedback. Er det en powerseller? Jeg kjøper ikke fra noen med under 95 prosent bra feedback. Shipper de til Norge? Hvis ikke kan du alltids contact seller på høyresiden og spørre. Skulle uhellet være ute og du ikke får varen din, erstatter paypal deg(opp til et visst beløp), bare gå inn på siden deres for info. Du vil ikke kjøpe fra noen uten paypal, det er ikke sikkert.
4. Frakt og toll. Ofte overpriser ebayselgerne frakten fordi de bare gjør et overslag, det er lov å si ifra hvis du synes det er urimelig. Alt over 200 kroner legges på moms og frakt i Norge. Men ofte slipper pakker med litt verdi over dette igjennom fordi posten ikke har kapasitet til å sjekke alle pakker. Shipping rules for Norway.
5. Hvordan du gjør kupp: Hva søker du etter? På vintagekjoler får du feks opp 30.000 treff. Da lønner det seg å avgrense søket, med feks 50s vintage dress, hvis det er det du leter etter. Legg ikke inn budet før rett før auksjonen går ut, det er i det siste sekundene budrundene skjer. Går auksjonen ut på natten kan du bruke bid assistant, som byr opp til det maks budet du bestemmer. PS: du legger alltid inn et maksbud når du byr, men det kan hende du får varen for utgangsbudet og da blir det et bra kjøp!


Have gotten some questions from esteemed readers on how you order, manage an account and paypal. You ladies also seem to want to know how I find all these gems, so here is a little guide.
1. Go to ebay and create an account. 2.Then they ask you if you want a paypal account. You want that. Its safe, you never show any information to the seller and its free of charge to sign up. You type in your emailadress and password, then put in your mastercardinfo and shippingadress. Any buys you have will be credited to your mastercard. Voila, you are ready to shop!
3.Check sellers feedback, I dont order from sellers with less positive feedback than 95%. Most sellers will work with you to seal the deal. However, I find you also have a responsibilty as a buyer. Follow instructions and pay on time.
4.What are you looking for? Vintage dress gives 30.000 hits, so 50s vintage dress might give less. Its in those last moments of the bidding that everything happens. So, type in your max bid in the 3 last minutes or bid with bid assistant to increase your winning chances. Often you get the product for the original price, and thats how a great deal is done!
In the case of bad sellers: Paypal will refund you(up to a certain amount)if you have a paypal account, just contact them through their site.

I've never bought anything on Ebay, although I do look at the items you link up. I guess it's a matter of getting used to it to a certain extent.

thanks for the tips!

Siljesfashion sa...

Cait;paypal is a safe payment method. But you have to add your own credit card-mastercard to buy something. Then they charge you the amount you shop for. You need a credit card, visa or mastercard to sign up. Good luck!

Hei.
Jeg er førstegangsbruker på Ebay, nå i dag:-) Jeg bruker tipsene dine. Veldig bra blogg, forresten.
Jeg legger inn bud, men så får jeg med en gang beskjed om at noen byr over. De byr med 50 cent hver gang.
Betyr det da at de har lagt inn et autobud med en øvre grense? Eller er det noe feil?
