All equipment will be sold on the brand new LHS eBay account.
We should have a template to use for the auctions, containing all the common information. Feedback from various people, to incorporate in the template text;
From Mike Harrison:
[Quick comments on ebay listings from a seasoned ebayer Specify pick-up location a bit more specifically - London is a big place, also specify possible pickup times, and emphasise pickup only in the listing text in big letters. Just copy & pasting manufacturers blurb with no additional info looks bad, especially for a zero-feedback seller - to instil some more confidence add a line or two about who you are & where kit has come from - not specific, just that it's a donated bulk lot from a working environment or similar. And add an 'about me' page.
In that vein, it might be worth adding some background i.e. donated by last.fm, maybe a link to the hackspace, explain the good cause, etc.
<aden> we probably should have bough tsome stuff on ebay to get feeback too, nobody is going to bid on a 0 feedback seller <Paul2> yeah 0 feedback 'hack' in the seller name. 1 line desciption. LOOKS LEGIT @@@@@ <jontyw> I'm also not sure that we should be selling seven monitors in one batch, it's MUCH better to just have "7 available"
I will have a stab at starting a template in a bit --Kevinb456 20:10, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
