Need eBay Advice (somewhat spam)
(Maybe this is more appropriate for Gear Swap, but I thought I'd try here first for maximum exposure.)
So, I have bought a few things off of eBay, but never sold anything. Now I need to sell a jacket and I have some questions:
1. I have posted a sample of the ad below - comments?
2. The jacket retails for $330. What can I expect to get for it on eBay?
2.a. What would an appropriate maggot price be?
3. Paypal - I have an account I pay with. Any reason I should be concerned about using it to receive funds?
4. How long should I list the item to get maximum price?
5. Any other general tips or pitfalls I should know about?
You are bidding on a
BRAND NEW, UNUSED ’04-’05 K2 VERSA VENT 3-LAYER
SKI AND SNOWBOARD JACKET, SIZE XL IN “ROCK” COLOR (DARK GREY).
The tags are still on the jacket and it retails for $329.99 + tax, if you can find it.
The VERSA VENT JACKET is K2’s top of the line waterproof/breathable ski and snowboard jacket for the 2004-2005 season.
It has all of the features you want and is designed for the harshest winter conditions.
I am selling the Versa Vent Jacket because K2 sent it to me as a warranty replacement for another (older) jacket I owned. However, I needed a replacement for my old jacket immediately and I had to buy a different jacket before the Versa Vent Jacket arrived from the K2 warranty department.
Here is some technical information from the K2 website and catalog:

HARDSHELL TECHNICAL PROTECTION FOR THE STRONGEST ELEMENTS
Hardshell outerwear offers waterproof and windproof protection in the absolute worst rain, snow and cold conditions. Now dubbed “hardshells”, our waterproof/breathable garments utilize a nylon or polyester shell fabric with a waterproof/breathable coating on the interior. Jackets and pants built with hardshell fabrics discharge moisture and heat through millions of micropores in their coating and, more efficiently, through physical venting systems such as pit zips and body vents. Our exclusive offering of hardshell fabrics includes 3L Hydromatic™, Hydromatic DLX™ and Hydromatic™. With these choices, you’ll find a level of protection perfect for the conditions you ride in.
K2 VERSA VENT JACKET PERFORMANCE:
3D Fit: Jackets and pants are built with a three-dimensional fit that is tailored to the body’s natural shape and movements. Wrapping seams and focused articulation at the elbows and knees create a more comfortable garment with minimal bulk.
