  • What’s the best way to ship my item?

    We’ll help you pick which delivery methods you want to offer, based on how others send similar items. By offering more than one delivery option, you'll be able to attract different types of buyers. Once the item has sold, you can purchase a label from eBay, which is pre-filled with your buyer’s address. When you print a shipping label on eBay, you'll save money with the rates compared to what you'd pay to a carrier for most services. Pack your item, apply the label, and take it to the nearest drop-off location. Learn more about eBay labels

    For most items, we can provide a price recommendation for you based on recently sold, similar items.

If you use Best Offer, buyers will make you offers with their suggested price, that you can accept or decline.

  • How does eBay protect sellers?
