Simple steps to selling

As a seller on eBay, you should promptly deliver your item once you have received payment from your buyer. It’s your choice on how you’d like to accept payments from your buyers, for example:

  • Wire transfer
  • Cheque
  • Money order

PhilPost is the most common way people send their items to buyers. If your item is bulky or fragile, consider offering local pick up or using a courier.

Here are some tips to decrease the time you spend on postage:

  • State your postage and packaging costs up front, eg: PHP 10 for registered mail within Manila.
  • Offer discounted postage rates or free postage for multiple items.
  • Refer to eBay’s Postage Centre

Finally, be sure to pack your item carefully and send it off to your buyer promptly.

It’s your choice who pays for the delivery of your item, however most sellers on eBay choose to charge the buyer for any postage and packaging costs. This should be stated in your listing description.
