eBay is the world's largest marketplace, and a worldwide phenomenon! Since the first edition of The eBay Book in June 2004, both the number of people using eBay, and the number of amazing stories of their experiences, have continued to grow at an amazing rate.

In the last year alone, over 1 million new users signed up to eBay.co.uk, and the total number of users hit the 10 million mark in February 2005. In fact, people in the UK spend more time on eBay than on any other website, making it the most popular brand name on the internet. It has over 3 million items for sale in its auctions at any one time, and among these are every type of collectable and consumer goods imaginable.

eBay provides a simple and amazingly effective way for anybody to auction items that they want to sell - whether they are antiques, books, computers, sports equipment, vinyl records, DVDs, clothing, jewellery, celebrity memorabilia or in fact almost anything - and allows potential buyers to browse and bid on this vast catalogue from the comfort of their own homes.

In this fully revised and updated edition of The eBay Book, David Belbin, a long time eBayer, explains how eBay.co.uk works, and how to get the most out of it, whether you are a buyer or a seller. He takes you through the key features of the site, step-by-step, advising on the tactics you can employ when bidding and selling, and explains how to minimise the fees you pay and just why your feedback rating is so important. He also explores the best ways to pay for goods and what to do if your transactions go wrong. This hugely readable book also contains a wealth of case studies, which draw on the knowledge and experience of a wide variety of eBayers, each with their own view of the eBay phenomenon.

For newcomers, this is an indispensable guide, which will show you the tools of the trade and give you the confidence to join the vast eBay community. For those who already know the basics, it is a short-cut to the advanced features of eBay, with the author's tips and tricks always close to hand.
