eBay is a global auction website, where consumers can buy and sell almost every kind of product imaginable. However, many people don’t know that eBay is more than a place to sell your unwanted items. Many well-known brands run their own eBay outlets, so eBay can also be a great place to pick up a bargain on new products, instead of buying in a regular store. Back to School is an annual shopping sale held to welcome in the new school year. In Australia, Back to School is held throughout the month of January, before school starts in late January and early February. It is a great opportunity for parents and school children to buy all of their school essentials at knockdown prices.
eBay has two main shopping formats: auction and Buy It Now. In auction listings you can bid the price you are willing to pay for an item, and if yours is the highest bid, you will win the auction and buy the item. For Buy It Now listings, the price is fixed and you just pay that amount. There is no auction involved so you can definitely buy the item without waiting. You can find everything you’ll need for school on eBay, including stationery, bags and lunch boxes, clothes and shoes. To get the best savings during the Back to School sale, we recommend setting up an eBay account now, if you don’t already have one, so you can shop more quickly and easily. You can also create a Watch List to keep an eye on products that you are hoping to purchase. When you search for an item on eBay, don’t forget to enter your postcode in the box on the right so you can see accurate postage costs to your address in the search results. In this way you can reduce postage costs during the Back to School sale.
