Reading: Auctions

Read the article and complete the tasks.

Welcome to!

I’m Mark and I’ll guide you through all the processes. As you selected the seller account, I will tell you everything about selling on our platform.

Let’s say you want to sell your old camera. First, you need to fill in the item description. It should contain all important information including technical specification, color and item condition, i.e. whether the product is new or used. Don’t forget to describe returns, so your clients know what to do if there is something wrong with the camera.

If you have a specific price in mind, there is a “buy it now” option, so anyone willing to pay this amount of money can buy the item straight away. Buyers have an opportunity to add your product to basket (if they are in England) or to cart (if they are in the USA). Later, they can purchase all the items in their cart at once.

If you do not, however, auction would be your best choice – buyers would place bids, or, in other words, declare the amount of money they want to pay. Bidders are informed about current bids by e-mail and on our website. As a seller, you can also be notified whenever buyers bid, just click the ‘Notify’ icon.

After buyers purchase the camera, they need to make a payment. All you need to do now is pack your product, pay for postage and expect money from us on your bank account when the buyer confirms the arrival of the package from you.
