    I've sold loads of stuff on eBay, but want to use their classified ads to sell a friend's MH. (I've put it on MHF but now want it on eBay).

    1. I don't want it placed on the auction pages
    2. Where the hell is the Classifieds site? :mad:Is it under 'Motors'?

    Can someone give me an idiot's guide please.

    Taa

    I sold a trailer under classified adds as it is much cheaper and I believe that it only applies in the motor section.

    I sold my last MH using eBay classified. Use link from John above. It is a good way to reach buyers.....HOWEVER Please be very careful with any replies you get via email or text message if you give phone number. I had emails which looked exactly like one that would come from EBay with all the logos and things saying something like " we have a buyer for your .... Click on link below and sign in". I did make mistake of clicking on the link and got an exact copy of the eBay login page. However, luckily I spotted that the URL was a .pl rather than .co.uk and I did not enter my sign in details. I also got some text messages saying " I want to buy....send me an email with your bank code and I will transfer money tonight and pick up next weekend". Sounds ok doesn't it? Do not fall for it. Genuine buyers telephoned me and had a chat about Motorhomes and what they had had in past etc, and obviously wanted to see it first and I could tell from the conversation that I could at least move forward with them in terms of meeting up for a viewing.

    I've had a look at the help pages John. They are just confusing. I just need a step/step guide.

    It would appear that I start the add in the 'Motors' section, rather than hunting for. 'Classified' heading????

    Using the above link from John, click on the embedded link on that page entitled
    List a car, motorcycle or other vehicle
    Sign in to eBay if it asks
    Start entering the details.

    When filling in the listings form in "sell your item" you select what kind of ad you want which brings up the correct format. everything else in the ad is the same be it auction, buy it now or classifieds.
    Auction and buy it now you pay fees, classified you pay a set fee for the time selected just like a newspaper ad.
