A couple of weeks ago I sold an item on eBay for the first time in several years. The process was smooth – much more so than my last experience in 2002. Key improvements:

  • Creating an auction is easier than before. The site has templates for common auction types, such as the mobile phone that I sold, so the listing automatically includes a photo and description of the product.
  • PayPal integration is * * * * * I received notification that the auction had ended, and about an hour later the buyer paid with PayPal. I signed into my eBay account and clicked a few buttons, and my printer spat out a shipping label
