Plenty. 1. Take the Money Order and Run Bernie won an auction for a 60-gig iPod from a new eBay seller. The seller stated she hadn't had the time yet to open a PayPal account and could only accept money orders, so Bernie purchased a money order and mailed it to her. Over the next month he watched in horror as her feedback rating nose-dived and her eBay account was finally suspended. After emailing several of her other recent buyers, he found out he wasn't the only one whose money she stolewell over a dozen other people never received their expensive merchandise either.

Sellers aren't the only ones who can get burned around here, you know. As a buyer, you may want to consider purchasing items on eBay only from established sellers. While all eBay sellers have to start somewhere, few do it by selling expensive items right out of the gate. It doesn't necessarily mean they're up to no good, but it does mean you should be cautious. The plusses of buying from a new seller include the fact that you probably won't have as much competition as you would if you were buying from a more experienced sellerbut there's a good reason for that.

A fistful of glitter may look pretty, but it'll make a mess. It's equally important that your package not emit odors when opened. If you smoke, keep the items you're selling and your packaging materials far away from the smoke since packaging tends to soak up the smell. And if your home has central heat or air, you're better off smoking outside. Air ducts pull smoke through the house into other rooms. On the flip side, some sellers think it's a nice touch to add something that smells good to a package, like dryer sheets or those paper fragrance samples pulled from magazines, but that's really not such a spiffy idea either.
