Don’t retire yet. You won’t be able to plan a trip to Tahiti with your profits, but you might make enough to go for a weekend getaway or help pay the bills. You’ve probably been thinking about what you are going to do with those old train cars of Dad’s you’ve been thinking you would set up someday but never got around to. You may be thinking if you hold on to them a little longer they’ll get more valuable. Probably not.

Harness the Potential For Huge Selling Power
An estimated 1.5 million individuals sell their unwanted items on Ebay to help supplement their income. Are you ready to start selling? Don’t have time or desire to do it yourself? Art of Downsizing is here to help you. Our staff is here to make sure your selling goes smoothly. We work with you on a sliding scale commission basis depending on selling price. We have 100% feedback on Ebay and have been selling since 1999. Contact Us if we can help. We’ll let you know if your items have any real value or not and arrange for pickup or delivery.
If Ebay is not the right platform for your item, we have several others to choose from such as Estatesales.org and Artspace. We also can incorporate some or all of your unwanted treasures into one of our upcoming estate sales.
What Is My Item Worth?
Use Ebay’s Appraisal Tool to see the value of items bought and sold in specific categories to determine if you may have something of value. Of course you must also take into account the condition and number of similar items currently selling.
Selling Sounds Easy, But How Do I Get Paid?
Once your item sells on eBay, all payments to you from buyers are safely and securely handled by PayPal for an additional fee (about 3%). If you’ve got an account, great! Just link it to your listing and your buyer will send the money to this account. Be patient, because it may take a little time for your buyer to send payment after purchase. If you don’t have a Paypal account yet, it’s easy to set one up. Paypal Sign Up. Recently there have been changes announced that indicate Ebay is phasing in a new payment processing company Adyen.com to be in effect by 2021. Don’t let this deter you.
Okay, I Think I Might Have Some Gold Nuggets
You can always try to list your items yourself to see how it goes. Many people find navigating the shipping costs, dealing with returns, keeping up on Ebay policies and changes and taking up the extra space in their home with storing sellables and packing material is just not what they want. That’s a good time to head out to the gold course and let us do the selling for you.
