What NOT to Say in an eBay Listing

January 25th, 2017 by Skip McGrath

eBay Tips from SkipHere are three things you should never say in an eBay Listing:

Thank you for looking at my listing – This is obvious – people are busy – get to the point.

Please accept my apology for any typos – People are more forgiving than you think. Also – they tend to scan listings pretty quickly and don’t necessarily spot typos —so don’t bring their attention to it. Having said that, take some time to re-read your listing carefully and remove any typos you see.

Supply is limited, so order now –  Whenever I see this, I automatically think the seller is lying. Instead, say something like, “Don’t miss out to another bidder, place your best bid now..”
