Top 10 Tips To Find A Great Dress On Ebay
is key to buying anything, search for what the dress is worth and for
other retailers selling the same product.
- Look at the seller's feedback
if there are any negative comments you will want to email the seller and
ask about them.
- Be aware that
there are ways for sellers to increase their positive feedback scores by
selling a number of low value items, to find out if this is the case
look at all of the feedback and then click on the item numbers listed
against the feedback. This will take you to that item's listing and what
the winning bid is for.
- Keep an
eye on the winning bids as it is a great way to do your market research,
you don't want to be paying over the odds for your cheap wedding dress.
An easy way to keep track is to press the 'watch this item' button
which you can find below the item's description. This will keep all of
the items as a list in your My Ebay page and you will now know how much
the market rate is for certain items.
get an understanding of the quality of workmanship on both new and once
worn dresses ask for lots of extra photos to be emailed. I have had
buyers ask for the item to be photographed with a piece of paper with a
particular phrase that they have come up with to ensure that the item
does exist. Don't worry about feeling pushy the seller wants a sale and
if they are hesitant then move on.
you are buying a once worn wedding dress on Ebay then ask for photos of
the hem and close up of the dress front, you are looking for grass
stains and wine stains, both are almost impossible to get out, so ask
lots of questions. Ideally you will want the dress dry cleaned before
you buy - I would ask for copies of receipts to be emailed.
key factor in bumping up the price of your cheap wedding dress on ebay
is the delivery, packaging, insurance and the possibility of import tax
and duty if you are having the item shipped from abroad. When I first
started using Ebay I often would think I had a bargain until I added up
the real cost and realise that I was paying the going rate and often the
same as I could find in my local shops.
extra cost is the big possibility that you may need the dress altered,
if you are buying a previously worn dress then the chance that it has
already been altered is high. Make sure you have all the details, you
don't want to be buying a size 12 dress that has been altered to be a
size 10 bust if you are not this size. In
the end it is better to buy a dress too big that can be altered rather
than one that you are trying to squeeze into. If you are going to have a
dress altered get costings from local dress makers and add this into
your total cost, also ask them the type of style that would be easiest,
the less work for them the less this will cost you.
with all online purchases there is no definitive way to ensure you get
what you have paid for, what you can do is be aware of the pitfalls and
question accordingly. Some sellers will offer postal insurance which on
an expensve item this can be worth taking or offer to pick it up. Check
with your credit card company if they cover and insure purchases via
ebay to cover yourself further.
- Another little trick to find your wedding dress on Ebay is to look
for spelling mistakes, classic typos are things like weeding dress and
weddding dress. This works really well if you are looking for a
