I sell 2nd hand or used items?
Goods on the site
can be brand new or used. You can put
up used products that are superfluous
for you such as used cars, furniture,
CD's, electronics etc. For that sake,
please provide relevant details such
as year of purchase, current quality
etc. We recommend all sellers to describe
their products fully and highlight whether
they are new or not in the title itself.
Keep in mind the fact that you need
to specify whether the item is new or
second hand when creating a new auction.
do I sell multiple items/set up a quantity
When you set up an auction for more
than one item, you should note that
any price you set should not be considered
collectively for all the items. The
start price is always taken as per item.
Hence take special care when you set
the price for more than one item and
set the start price accordingly.
Adding a picture to your auctions more
than doubles your chances of your selling
the product. Prospective bidders may
harbor certain apprehensions about the
of your product condition, which would
be eliminated when they get to see a
picture of the product.
Adding a picture to your listing at
Fotobazar.com is child's play. All you
have to do is get a scanned picture
of you product and attach it on the
item form in the sellers menu.
While adding a picture please make a
note of the following points :
- Ensure that the picture
depicts the true (recent) condition
of your product, i.e. if it's a used
product; please do not use a picture
of a new product with similar details.
- Please make sure that
the picture that you attach is not very
bulky, ideally the picture should be
in a GIF or JPEG format and the file
should not be more then 50 KBs. The
bigger the file, longer it will take
to appear on the product page.
An image processor like Adobe PhotoDeluxe
/ Photo shop can be brought in use to
touch up your picture and make it more
is bid increment?
The bid increment is the amount by which
each bid increases. The seller sets
this amount. Bids will only have to
be one increment or more above the current
bid to be accepted.
