Taking Paypal on eBay
Accepting Paypal as a payment method might increase your selling prices and your profits. This depends on what you are selling. I sell collectibles to collectors. My clients are like junkies. They will buy regardless of the payment options, so not offering Paypal won't make much difference in the final selling prices.
If you sell items with high competition, accepting Paypal will make your auctions more attractive. This also holds true for impulse buys. Plus, you can get paid instantly through Paypal.
Here's a few suggestions for increasing your profits by accepting Paypal:
1. Select accept Paypal in the auction listing process to get the Paypal logo into your auction. You can put in the auction description that you accept Paypal, but unless you use the Paypal logo some buyers will miss this Payment choice. Many buyers look specifically for the logo and expect to find it in certain areas of the auction listing.
2. If you only accept bank account transfers, and do not accept credit card payments through paypal be sure to mention this in your auction description and the payment types area. Even after you mention this, you will get credit card payments from some Paypal users. This causes confusion with buyers.
3. One problem that may come up is your shipping schedule. I ship once a week. Some eBay buyers feel that I should drop everything and go to the post office as soon as they send me money through Paypal. This used to cause problems.
Now when a buyer sends me money, I quickly email him and tell him when to expect his item. Because I ship on Thursday or Friday, I can tell them their item will be delivered by the next Tuesday, if not earlier. Instead of telling the buyer I will ship the item on Friday, I tell them to expect it on Monday. This changes the buyer's focus from when I will ship to when they will get the item.
One last thing before I finish up. I recommend eBay sellers use guarantees. If you take a credit card through Paypal, and later refund the buyer's money, you will be out the Paypal fees if the refund is done more than 30 days after the initial transaction. You need to require your buyer to return the item quickly.

Make Money on eBay the EASY way!
Probably just like you, I had an overwhelming desire to spend more time with my family and friends, doing the things that are important to me and living a comfortable lifestyle without financial worries ? and yes, less time working to pay for it!!! So with my quest to find financial freedom, I "googled" my way through searches looking for ideas on how I could fulfil this desire with minimum effort and expense. After all, I wanted to make money not spend it! I had aspirations of making wad loads of cash so my family & I could truly enjoy the pleasures of life - together. Now I've been involved with eBay for a number of years and enjoyed the success and extra incidental profits from selling our own surplus & bought items but never really considered that we could substantially make money on eBay alone. So when I stumbled across some websites claiming to be able to do just that, I was intrigued. This could very well be the best home business money making opportunity to have evolved in the past 50 years ... possibly ever! eBay is one of the fastest growing companies in history. This in itself presents the opportunity for anyone to step right into a massive marketplace of over 47 million enthusiastic buyers and make money on eBay. With this kind of unlimited exposure for under a dollar, I thought ANYONE can launch a profitable home based business starting from scratch! So why not me? Greatly excited by what I had discovered, I began to see my enjoyment for eBay as no longer a hobby but an amazing opportunity to fulfil our dreams and accomplish them with something I actually love to do ? eBay!!! Ok, so I settled by what means I wanted to achieve success but how would I go from being an occasional seller to being a high profit powerseller making serious money on eBay? I needed more information but I really did not want to pay for it. You see, I was a "freebie seeker". I was prepared to scour the vastness of the internet to find the "secrets of success" without monetary expense. Ironically though, I ended up spending all that "precious time" I was trying to save, searching and implementing instead. Hundreds of others had quit their jobs and were making a killing with their own home based business and so I was driven to find out how they did it ? website after website after website, day after day after day ? before I knew it, I'd spent a couple of months day and night trying desperately to piece it all together. What was I thinking?! ? Wasn't the whole idea that I wanted to spend less time working and more time with my loved ones enjoying life!!! .. SO what happened? I lost the plot! Along the way I saw a number of quality informative websites offering all the "secrets" for a reasonable cost that I could access instantly but I fooled myself into thinking I could find out all this information easily and without spending a dime. I continued to muffle my way through copious amounts of information and found bits and pieces, tips and suggestions for making money on eBay I thought I could use, but for the record, I made many mistakes along the way which cost me even more precious time. So what have I learned? Well, actually I've learnt a great deal about how to make money on eBay but I've also gotten wiser! No longer am I prepared to sacrifice my precious commodity of time for the sake of saving a small amount of money (which incidentally, I would make back promptly by following the expert's examples).

An instant home business is right at your fingertips because eBay is the easiest way to start making money immediately from your own home! This is a real business opportunity but the level of success you achieve will be determined by learning the secrets & sources of those making a killing on eBay ... The eBay Experts! Don't make the same mistakes I made ? There are many shady guides on making money on eBay, most of them written by people who don't make money on eBay themselves.

Now much wiser and finally privy to these expert's secrets, we've put together a list of resources at our website that we consider are the *best* and are bestsellers - separating the wheat from the chaff.
