there are many items being sold here on eBay everyday, and to be honest you can find anything on eBay nowadays. Many things can be done to increase your chances of getting the maximum amount for your item, but you can get the maximum amount for your item really simply. First, you have to make sure you have a good picture. The saying "Pictures are worth a thousand words" is 100% true. Having a really clear, yet semi-professional picture can at least increase the final price of your item by 10% if not even more.
Another way to increase the maximum price, is having a clear and accurate description. Having a accurate and clean description helps the buyer know why he/she is purchasing and they will have more confidence bidding on your item. So, when you list an item, do not just say like: "used, still mint condition", try to describe it in more clearer words like " for auction is my lovely paid of boots. They were worn only twice and they are still in mint condition..." Also, please try to use the 1-2 different fonts and colors. Also try to use colors like blue and black. Having many different fonts and colors might stop the buyer from reason the whole description.
Also in your description try to guarantee that your customer won't be disappointed and offer a 2 week return policy if they are not fully satisfied. Having a return policy will 100% increase the final price. Remember not everybody will return your item.
In addition to a better picture and description, try to offer a 1 day handling. Buyers love to receive their items as soon as they can, so if you can ship their item same business day or within 24 hours your item will get more bids.
Forth, try to offer free shipping, if not make sure your shipping charges are reasonable. For example, if you are selling a watch, it would cost you $15 the most with insurance and a fast shipment, so don't charge like $40, unless you ship express. As long as the shipping charges are reasonable, your item will get more bids.
Fifth, offer additional shipping options. There is definitely a demand for the item you are selling, and there might be someone who might need it soon, so in addition to the economy shipping, try to offer expedite shipping as well.
Finally, try to offer international shipping to Canada, some south American countries, Australia, and European countries. By offering international shipping you have more chances of selling your item for even a higher price.
