I just posted a listing and my wife and I are working getting these things out to sell them. So far I have taken pictures of my product inventory. We are currently working on putting together product descriptions. I more or less wanted some feedback on how my layout for this product looks and sounds.

I am more or less a first time seller and I need some guidance (dont we all at first?! :D ).

Anyways here is one of my craigslist postings tell me what you think please.

Definitely add the shipping cost to increase buyer certainty (and cut down your time responding to email enquiries).

I would also get rid of the photo of your other stock as I think it just confuses the issue (plus it's actually hard to see the quality of the items as the photo is quite dark).

You would be better off finishing with a stronger sentence such as 'Only one available, get in quick! This is a massive saving of 40%!'

Yes definitely add a shipping cost. On a small item like that I would consider US postal service as it would be the cheapest method. Probably 3 or 4 dollars at most.

Also considering the item. Its a very nice plush toy. I loved them. Much nicer then the shrek dolls. I would use that as a motivator for bids or a sale on another item. The purchaser name and address will be also included on this plush toy that we are donating to toys for tots or something along that line. When you donate a toy to a kids charity they send you a thank you card or plaque. This can also be a motivator as they know their purchase would also give a donation to a needy child.

Another sales gimmick is to use the bottom pic to drive traffic to your ebay store. Include a small sales pitch and your ebay username under or above the picture.
