There is so much competition on eBay, and the majority of people there are are looking for the best deal they can find, meaning it can be hard to get the best prices for your items.
Depending on your item, better prices can be often be achieved by advertising in trade magazines and newspapers. Free local classified newspapers are also a good place to try selling your item. People who buy through these mediums are often after goods they can buy locally or niche items and aren’t as bargain-oriented as eBayers.
You can find appropriate trade magazines by looking online or in your local bookshop. Most communities have newspapers and it can be a good idea to try running a standing advertisement for your product.
