Addicted to novelty since 2001

My First eBay Auction

I’ve never sold anything on eBay. However, as a gift for participating in a development focus group for the game, I recently received a copy of NHL Rivals 2004 for the Xbox. As I don’t have an Xbox, don’t want an Xbox, and hadn’t sold anything on eBay, I figured I give it a try.

I welcome any tips on my sales technique. I think I resisted most of the up-sell tactics they use to suck more money out of you. I suppose this is a lousy time of year to be selling, but what the heck. If you’re an Xbox owner and hockey fan, you can bid on the thing here.

    The only tip I would have for future auctions is to end it late afternoon between Tuesday and Thursday. Most people have access to their internet connection and have already dealt with the day’s pressing matters. My reasoning may be completly wrong, but it’s worked pretty well for me.

    Use gaudy oversized multicolour fonts and multiple cheap graphics endorsing your reputation. Also, apply a punctuation multiplier for anything not a period. For example, apply a multiplier of 7 to any use of an exclamation point, and 3 to question marks.
