eBay can be a great resource when looking for unique items, or a potential deal on used goods. It’s also a potential way to make a few extra bucks if you can make an appealing listing, be patient for bids, and trust the winner actually follows through with payment. eBay Valet is a new app to make the eBay selling process easier, and works similarly to the SoldIt drop off locations, but all from your iPhone. It’s not that hard to list items on eBay, but it can be a hassle once an item is posted, and that’s where eBay Valet comes into help.
The app lets you gauge your items worth by simply snapping a couple of pictures, and describing its condition. Once you submit a tiny bit of info, the eBay Valet will get back to you with an estimated price, and from there you can decide whether, or not to proceed. If you choose to use eBay Valet, they will send you a free box, and prepaid shipping label to send the item in to be sold. eBay Valet does the rest, and you get 70% of the selling price without having to worry about a week of bidding to maybe get to your price, non paying bidders, shipping costs, PayPal hassles, and more. Again, listing an item on eBay is easy, but actually selling it opens up a whole other can of worms. It costs you 30% of the selling price, similar to having valet parking your car, but how much is time, and no hassle worth to you?
eBay Valet (Free, iPhone) is an effortless way to sell your unwanted items, and it can all be done through a streamlined iPhone app.
