10. Be prompt, make cash

Once your auction has finished, and it has sold – take a moment to pat yourself on the back – and then do not procrastinate – once you receive payment – send the item out! Your buyer will appreciate you even more (especially if you take the time to let them know when it has started its journey to them), and will give you a good feedback rating – this will help with the next gift that Aunty Maureen gives you...


Aunty Maureen got you what she thought was the latest thing in computing, sadly that USB hub she got is a bit passé for your discerning geeky tastes. So what do you do with it?

You can relegate it to the dongle basket that lives inside your wardrobe, or you could sell it and make a bit of money. Time to brush up on your eBay selling skills.
