Ebay is one of the major auction houses on the Internet. Thus, they usually have a large selection of children’s clothing available for a decent price. Because they are an auction site, you have to learn how to bid to keep your budget for clothes under control. There are a few things you have to do before you become involved in Ebay.
The first is to sign up for a free account with them. You can make up a username and password. Make certain to read all of the agreements concerning the terms of service and look at their policy on returning items.
Before you purchase anything online, create a safe account that you can put your money into. Consider a prepaid credit card or some payment system that is not connected directly to your bank account. You might want to look at setting up a different account just for online purchases.
Then you want to set your budget at the amount you want to spend, and don’t forget to add in shipping costs. You will need to stick to this number. It is very tempting to overbid on an item, because there is competition for it. Overpaying for an item is not nearly as satisfying as winning it at a really good price. If the price goes over your budget, drop your bidding. There will always be more children’s clothing available.
Research the price on the children’s clothing displayed by the seller before you place a bid. A quick search can tell you if you are really getting a good deal or not. Not all items displayed are going to be at a discounted price.
Look for sellers that have really good feedback on sent items. You are more likely to get exactly what is displayed. Ebay does have a return policy, so be sure to check it before accepting the purchase.
Concentrate your bidding on multiple items of children’s clothing. While you can bid on single items, it is more cost-efficient to head toward clothing that is sold in bulk rather than trying to buy a bunch of different individual pieces and paying the shipping costs on those.
Finally, remember why you are on Ebay in the first place. It is easy to get distracted and forget that you are on there to buy children’s clothing.
