It is very easy, but here's some advice... never sell exclusively on ebay (especially if you are depending on the income). Ebay has the worst treatment towards small sellers and will limit your account, restrict your account, or suspend your account permanently even if you do something unintentional or if they suspect you are doing something wrong. You could sell clothes on ebay and specifically state NO RETURNS, ALL SALES ARE FINAL. A buyer could buy a pair of pants from you and up to 6 months later, they can contact ebay and say they are not as described and ebay will force you to refund them, and will probably not even require the buyer to return the item.
We used to sell flags on ebay. We thousands of flags, but one was the Cleveland Indians flag. Ebay removed our listing because it had the name "Indians" in it. We were supposed to refer to them as "Native Americans". So, I changed the name to Cleveland Native Americans flag.
We also sold FORD flags, you know, the tall advertising flags? Type in "Ford Swooper" on ebay and as of right now, there are 9 listings of the same flag we sold. We are probably the largest sign and flag business on the internet and I'm quite sure those sellers get their flags from the same place we do. Ebay removed our listing and restricted our selling account for 2 weeks because of a "Copyright violation" Really ebay? So it's okay for SOME sellers to sell the "Copyright violated" items, but not others.
Another thing ebay does is blocks your listing or does not show it in searches. Read around and you will see LOTS of people complaining about drastically reduced sales. My theory is if ebay has a big box seller or a seller from China, their listings will show above yours.
We had enough of being led around on a leash. Our business is OUR business and we don't need ebay forcing refunds to buyers that don't read the descriptions. Buyers know that all they have to do is say "Product not as described" and the seller is forced to pay return shipping or refund the item without returning. Doesn't matter what the truth is.
We've moved our business over to Page on toucandeal.com. Not as much traffic, but it's working out fine. We have sales and toucandeal doesn't butt in. I will never go back to ebay. For those of you that don't believe me, take this as a warning. Ebay suspends people every day for reasons they can't even explain. Tens of thousands of people have been wrongfully suspended. People have lost their homes, cars, and there have even been suicides because of the stress of losing "Everything" at the hands of ebay. You could have had a roommate 5 years ago that got suspended and they will somehow link your account with his and you will be shut down. If you insist on being a part of ebay and their unfair practices, go right ahead, but don't put all of your eggs in their basket. List your products on another site (or sites) too. It's not a matter of IF it happens to you, it's WHEN will it happen to you, because it will one day.

It is trivially easy to do this.
I personally have had an eBay account since 1998 (mostly for buying), but recently decided to get serious about getting rid of lots of excess crap in my house. I decided to get rid of five things a day for a year, and to keep myself honest I started a Tumblr for it at
...and decided to set up a second eBay account, just for selling occasional items from the Tumblr.
The main tips I would give you are:
- don't choose an eBay name that is exactly the same as your real name, but try to get one that is easy to remember
- in your product descriptions, always include multiple photos with closeups of any scratches, spots, flaws, etc. (very important for large items - you want good feedback so full disclosure is vital), and (as shades of color will look different in different photos) say which photo is closest to the real color on your monitor
- always take and include careful measurements of the items' dimensions
- state whether the item is coming from an environment where there have been pets or smoking
- err on the side of overcommunication
- if you're talking furniture, you can use eBay to sell locally and require local pickup of items
- the US Postal Service has very favorable rates for "flat rate" boxes that can hold quite a lot of stuff, and is significantly less expensive than UPS (although it does not offer the kind of tracking you can get from UPS)
- PayPal has great integration with the US Postal Service and it is easy to print prepaid USPS labels through PayPal after receiving payment for your items
I'd be happy to share anything else I know if you have specific questions.

It's a fairly standard account set up process...takes maybe 30 mins but you will have to likely also set up & confirm a paypal account as you will need some form of payment acceptance whether you use it for sales or not. The PayPal side can be a little longer. Be aware that if you are new to ebay and PayPal then they will restrict when your payment receive funds are available to use by waiting until a tracking number shows as delivered. Could take 50-100 transactions before they lift this restriction.
Not the best place to sell large home items unless they are so in demand in your area that local pick up is an option to draw enough buyer traffic. You can make a listing without offering to ship but it may not be your best way to find a buyer. I'd look into some of the new "sell/swap" apps that that have been growing recently such as Offerup if you need a CL alternative for bulky items.

Not complicated at all. It all depends on your ambitions, motivation, and of course, on your products.
Setting up to sell on eBay is a simple 3 step process.
- Sign up for a seller account. Confirm your name, address and phone number and specify a method to pay your eBay fees. Paypal is recommended.
- Create your listing. Add pictures, write a title, product description and other item specifics
- Post your listing. If you’ve listed your product as an auction, you now have to wait for the length of the auction and be ready to sell send the item once payment is received. If there’s a buy it now price, be ready to post your item as soon as it’s sold and you’ve been paid.
Of course, it’s better if you are selling not only on Ebay, but through other channels as well, including your own website. This will increase your reach and therefore your revenue. You can try Shoplo Multichannel if you want to effectively manage your sales and inventory across different accounts.
