eBay has made collecting stamps a hobby that is affordable. We often can find lots of stamps with the cost of only one cent. In addition, the stamps can be traded or sold on the site as well; they give collectors the opportunity to maximize the profits. To start buying stamps on eBay, you just need to register, browse the categories, or type keywords into search engines.
Find the item you want, place your maximum bid, and select the amount you are willing to pay, then eBay will do the bid on behalf of you against other bidders. Or you can select the “buy now” option and you must pay for – buy now price – to avoid all the competition. Buyers can pay with a credit card or through PayPal.
Curious people, the people who just looking for information and do not have desire to make purchase stamps at this moment, still have opportunity to obtain information about the stamp. It is because there are some links that are provided by eBay, such as: American Philatelic Society, a center PSE authentication, and the American Stamp Dealers Association or the industry publication.
For the seller, eBay can attract great target market for stamps and allows the perfect online bidding like a lot of the auction, so that sellers can make more money than the price they asked. This process is relatively simple. First, the seller should see and decide what to sell, and complete the registration process. Second, after registration, prospective sellers need to upload the photos and add some descriptions of each item they sell, set up the notification email and wait for bidding to begin.
As a seller, you can be paid immediately by PayPal. You can do all the tracking through the “My eBay” section. eBay Bulk listing and management tools make it easy to track all transactions that occur.
