I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It's a while since I set mine up. What you do need is a debit card attached to your PayPal to receive money into. Unfortunately every time I buy something it now defaults to using that account rather than the credit card - just a thing to watch out for
The actual selling bit us easy. It's best to work out the postage costs before you start, but then you can click a 'sell one like this' button which captures all the info from the ad. Change the bits you want to suit your sale, post exactly 7 days before you want it to close (so complete it Friday or Saturday night). You can save, preview and edit your ad before you commit yourself and you can remove it from sale at any time.
Be prepared to package it and take it to the post promptly after the sale.
It's all good fun once you've created your first sale, writing the description becomes easier and you get better at taking photographs.

They've hidden the edit button on here. Please excuse the typos above.

Forgot to mention, once you have your debit card set up, they send you a penny or something to verify it, you follow the links to set up a seller account, it really is quite straightforward.

Thanks Michael, but I'm using a phone for access. I have for a long time now. That's why I manage so many typos because my phone autocorrupts sometimes and the site still hasn't corrected the light blue banner covering what I am typing.

Aha! I see it now. Hid behind a down arrow.
Glad to help :)
I live in Chiba,  Japan and we had a big Earth Quake (5-) just before 6am after the massive flooding of over 6500 homes destroyed in the last three days   so I am repairing the damage ... maybe I can help EE  members again soon :)

Crikey! That sounds awful. I hope everything is ok soon.

Michael, hope you go through this ordeal soon
Thanks, we were not in the flooded area, but with more cracks in our walls also doors and widows not closing properly, my nerves are on edge thinking about the "big one" (quake) that is predicted to hit overdue.
With volcanoes erupting all across Japan it is clear that seismic activity is increasing.
