Risks Associated With Selling Watch Yourself

Do you have a watch that you are trying to sell? Thinking of selling it on E-bay? This research may change your mind. On E-bay, each seller receives a rating that is based on the buyer’s experience. The buyer bases this experience on the communication with the seller, the shipping time, the price, and whether or not the item was in the condition that was described. The higher the E-Bay rating, the more trustworthy the seller and the more comfortable people are buying from this seller. If people have more trust in you, the more they are willing to pay for your watch. This research shows the importance of the seller rating:

Model: Grand Carrera Calibre 36 RS Caliper
Model #: CAV5115.BA0902

Seller Rating Box & Papers Price
2066 No $4,800
2052 No $4,800
562 B/O $4,255
34 No $2,600
10,531 Yes $6,295

If you’ll notice, the selling with the rating of 10,531 received significantly more than the sellers with a lower seller rating. The most points that a seller can receive from each buyer is 10 points, so this seller must have sold a lot of items to reach such a high seller rating. For those of you who are thinking of selling your watch on E-Bay and are first time sellers, you will not have a high seller rating, which will certainly have an affect on how much people will be willing to pay for your watch. They have no reason to trust you and will most likely not be willing to spend a significant amount of money on your watch.
