Well, sold my first item on eBay this evening. I must admit to being fascinated by the whole process. The initial act of putting the item up for auction had a little spark of excitement, and then it all went quiet until a few minutes before the end of the auction! About five minutes before the auction drew to a close, there was a sudden flurry of activity and my item which had stood almost neglected at £1 suddenly shot up in value reaching the final sale price of £2.40. Hopefully, the transaction will proceed smoothly and I’ll have my first eBay rating.
