Ebay is a great place for searching for rare collectibles. And did you know that you can use certain ebay coupons to make your purchase even better value for money? Ebay coupons come in two separate types, ones that are for particular retailers, and ones which offer you money off on any of your purchases.
Looking for rare collectibles on ebay is great fun, and offers the chance of you finding some hidden gem that everyone else has missed. And you can search worldwide, so that 5 dollar item someone has up for sale in Lativia might well be worth a fortune – they just don’t know it.
Rare collectibles usually end up going on ebay as an auction. This means that you have to bid your highest price possible to be in with a chance of winnings. Be careful though, as there are many fakes for sale, so make sure you question the seller and see good quality photographs of the items from all angles. You should also ensure you get to see high resolution photos of any relevant makers or date markings.
When buying collectibles on ebay, always use paypal to pay for your purchases. This ensures that you are covered by their buyer protection should the purchase turn out to be different from what was described.
To use your ebay coupons against your collectible purchases, simply enter the ebay coupon code when you pay, and your discount will be applied.
All types of collectibles can be found on ebay. To find out what sort of prices similar items have fetched, select the ‘advanced search’ mode and search for completed items. This will give you a rough idea of what you can expect to pay for the item you are searching for.
Another tip is to bid at the last minute, although it’s not advisable to put your bid in during the last few seconds in case your internet connection fails. Place your highest bid at around 5 or 10 minutes before the end. Ebay will then bid on your behalf up to that amount, and if someone places the same bid as yours then your bid will win as it was placed earlier.
