Sell Your Product And Service
Setting clear buyer expectations and then meeting or exceeding them is a great way to make your buyer happy and ensure a smooth transaction.
Some of the simplest things you can do are to provide accurate and consistent details about your items and to be clear and specific about the terms and conditions of the sale. You should also make every effort to provide excellent customer service from start to finish, including:
1. Charging reasonable shipping and handling costs
2. Specifying your handling time and return policy in your listing
3. Responding to buyers' questions promptly
4. Being professional throughout the transaction
5. Making sure the item is delivered to the buyer as described in your listing
Frequently reviewing and updating listings to make sure all information – such as inventory status and item condition – is accurate and up to date
To help you meet our seller goals we have some basic requirements all sellers must meet. We also have tips on how you can meet, and exceed ,buyers' expectations.
Why do I need to specify the location of the item in my listing?
Buyers like to know where the item is being shipped from as it helps to give them an idea of how much shipping will cost and how long it might take for the item to arrive. Having an inaccurate item location can cause confusion and lead to a poor experience for your buyer.
What should I include in my terms and conditions?
Be very clear and thorough about the terms of the transaction and include information about the forms of payment you accept, any taxes or other applicable fees, shipping and handling, and your return policy. Being upfront and honest about these terms helps build trust and provides a positive buying experience for your customers.
Do I have to accept returns?
You don't have to accept returns, but we highly recommend you do – it might help you attract more buyers. If you do accept returns, make sure you specify the time period in which you accept returns, who pays for the return postage, and how the refund is issued.
