Default Ebay Help

Do any of you guys sell items on ebay? I have bought tons of crap, never sold anything, until now

I put some ACFT tires on ebay, that are new, but I don't seem to be generating any interest, only a few views.

Here is the auction http://www.ebay.com/itm/272230862627...84.m1555.l2649

I have priced them at about 1/2 cost of retail as well was sure to put in the right category.

Please have a look and tell me if there is anything I can do better

thanks

Aircraft Tires? Probably a fairly small market compared to most others.

I do lots of eBay selling. The stuff that can't be easily shipped is a hard sell. Try listing them locally on a selling webpage. Maybe CL or Face book. Face book has local selling pages.

I've had good luck selling avionics but other parts not as much. I always started it off real low with no reserve.

Marty those tires are for a Lear 23- 24- 25.series. You might have a hard time selling them as most maintenance guys or chief pilots do not want to take the chance of buying something that their name or they sign off on. They also need and keep most paperwork for a reason. If those tires fit a small privately owned general aviation aircraft, you could sell them in a heartbeat, especially at close to half price.

Marty those tires fit a Lear 23 - 24 - 25 series jet. Most maintenance guys would never take the chance of putting on " new, used " tires. They want and need a paper trail to cover their ass. If those fit small privately owned aircraft, you could probably sell them right away, especially asking 1/2 price of new.

Yeah we don't have any 8130s for them thus the low 1/2 off price. They for sure will have to be used by a part 91 operator.

Just trying to recoup some of our cost to clean up the mess this guy left

Thanks for the input

Marty, you have the tires listed in the Aviation "Parts" category. There is an "Aircraft Tires + Tubes" category that would be more suitable. You can revise your listing.


Also, if there is any room in your title, you may want to ad words like Lear 23 24 25 or other planes that would use these tires, etc. You may catch someone's eye who is searching for other parts.


I don't know anything about plane tires but do they have an expiration date due to age? This may be a problem even if they are "new"?
