VW Vanagon Listing on eBay

Well I learned a lot today! After my morning post I decided that I would like to sign up for Sellathon, another service that I have heard a lot about. This will give me information on who what when and how people get to my auction. Then I started writing my listing. Boy it is very complicated describing all details of the van. I have learned that it is easier to do a bullet list of all the good things about the van and all the bad things about it. This organizes my thoughts and makes the copy easy to scan.

I am selling this Van on eBay as a Trading Assistant. One of the reasons the seller wanted me to try eBay is no one here in Southwest Louisiana wants a camper without an air conditioner and most people around here do not know what a VW Westfalia Vanagon even is. It is a vehicle which will be very popular on the West Coast.

I will be listing this with a third party auction management service called Spare Dollar. This inexpensive service provides you with the Best Templates, Photo Hosting and Auction Management at a mere $4.95 a month!! All the people there are friendly and helpful. Their forum is the greatest!

Last night after putting the finishing touches on my listing I went to upload and could not find any way to upload to motors. PANIC ... Oh No... put out a SOS on the forum board and someone quickly explained that Spare Dollar does not support the motors division of eBay. I thought I was had, but the work around is to View the Source of the the listing and copy and paste into eBay Motors Description Section. I love it... I can have my custom template and stand out from the crowd on eBay Motors without too many problems.

I worked on my Photos earlier today and put together a Fine Slideshow with Voice Over that will be added once the listing is live.

Boy... took me about 3 1/2 hours to get this listing up to my satisfaction. Since this was my first auto I don't think that was too bad. Here is the link... 1985 VW Vanagon I had a problem with the Slide Show voice over and somehow the Voice Track starts automatically !!! I will try to shut it off tomorrow. I started this auction at $499... hopefully this will be cheap enough to attract bidders real soon.

More Tomorrow... Good Night
