Selling used skis
I tried to sell my 4frnt msps with look bindings on ebay and started the bid at $250 and they didn't sell. I bought the skis for $650 last season, i used them for one season and they are in good shape. How much money should i be looking to sell these skis for?
it depends on the quality of the ski if they are chipped up, cosmetic damage, bases scratched up, size more info needed

sometimes you just have to try for a little while, b/c there are times when nobody is looking for skis...try again, and at somepoint you'll have a buyer

just start them at 99 cents thats what I do with everyhing I sell on ebay...
okay... get in your car and be like hey tom tom, take me to mcdonalds, and get a application and be like tom tom, take me home, fill it out and get back in your car and be like tom tom, take me back to mcdonalds and then be like you here is my application, and then they will call you later and be like yo...want the job and be like yeah and then get in your car and say hey tom tom, take me to mcdonalds and then be like bam pay check then be like i quit and then be like tom tom take me to the ski hill and be like bam here is the cash and they will be like here is the season pass then be like bam im on the ski hill and then when you are done be like, tom tom take me home, and then you wake up the next day they go to your car and then be like tom tom, take me to the hill again, then do that again till there is no snow...
starting them at 99cents sounds kinda risky because there 161 - definately not a popular size - if nobody bids, somebody could snag them for basically nothing
u can say u no longer want 2 sell them
G-UNOT! real gangster rap
you set a reserve price. And if it doesn't get to where you want it then boom, no biggy. But more people will be apt to look at your skis if the price is "99 cents" vs. if it's 250.
unless you are wanting to spend $$ on listing fees for constantly trying to relist, don't use reserves, buy it nows, or any of that shit. Its just a way for them to make money.
Just use as many descriptive words in your title, like
"4frnt MSP Twin Tip Freestyle Park Skis 161" or similar to retain as many hits as possible
just set the price around what you are willing to accept, use a gallery image, and maybe a 10 cent designer layout.
this you shouldn't do though, unless you really have a legit reason. don't just end the auction just because you are not happy with the ending price.
