Good grief eh? Bit of a boyish thread this one!

I do have a very specific thing to sell. Not tri related. I've advertised it everywhere else online so here goes...

----------------------
Return ticket from Taipei (Taiwan) to Bangkok with China Airlines.

* Depart TPE - Saturday Nov 22!
* Return TPE (from BK) - Saturday 29 Nov

This ticket cost 6850NT (or 125 quid) via a cheap deal a few days ago! I'm looking for any amount really!

----------------------

NO?

Really? You're not interested? Damn it! I now have TWO tickets for the same flight - doh.

Confused

Oh dear Matt, that really was a last ditch attempt at flogging that ticket, wasn't it?

I think that, excluding viagra pills, said ticket is the most advertised thing on the net right now!

Last ditch? This has gone WAY beyond ditches...

Has anyone sold anything on Ebay - I've bought but never sold. Is it easy? I've got a pinball machine I need to sell.

I'm a big ebay fan... and there's a lot of pinball and old arcade stuff on Ebay, (been hunting for a Spy Hunter machine for ever) most of it's cash on delivery and collection only, so you can sell it easy enough. If you do that then you'll not miss out on the cash. I've bought some real bargains on Ebay and can recommend it. Also managed to buy my bass amp on there, and sell it for the same price. Needed to get one for a gig and it worked out easier than a borrow or a rental...

EBAY - very easy to sell on. I've sold plenty (both for business and pocket money).

Ebay's HELP section page will help you get started.

In my humble experience, the important points to take note of (to get the best price), are:

* Include two or three good pictures of your item and make sure you include a picture next to your listing heading.

* Make sure you list your item in the correct category! Type in pinball machine and see what cat. most of them are listed in.

* Be realistic with your Reserve Price (if you decide to use one).

* Wallop lots of similar keywords in your heading / body text (pinball machine / arcade etc.).

Here's the link to Ebay's Get Started Selling page (click the easy tour!).

http://pages.ebay.co.uk/help/startselling.html?ssPageName=UKHP10:HowToSell

Hope that helps.

Thanks - I've been meaning to sell it for ages. It's at my folks house and they want rid of it although I reckon they play it all the time when I'm not there.

It's a Bally Royal Flush, 1970's I think - Reel type rather than digital. It's in excellent condition (I'm doing my sales pitch now). Haven't got pictures at the mo but will be taking some shortly - if you're interested I'll email them.

I wish I had the room! Reel types were much better than the digital whizz-bang types that took over in the 80s. You could get physical with those suckers!

yeah, you could really move it around, especially as I found a way to temporarily disable the tilt mechanism. Nudging them was part of the skill I reckon.

I once (when I was 7) saw a guy getting carried away with the nudging and, with hindsight, it looked as if he was trying shag the thing into the wall Twisted Evil
