      what happen if we don’t paid ?

        @ Lily,

        I registered with ebay.com and sold some stuff too, to oversea buyer.
        eBay automatically charge my credit card. The credit card info was submitted during registration.

        I think you submitted credit card info too during registration.

      I am ebay seller right now. I just wonder to know we can sell item through SQUIDO in Malaysia ?

      The New Ebay Malaysia were charges the seller listing fee, do you think we have to pay ?


      • KCLau

        Ebay Malaysia charges fees for certain features. I still list my item there without charge because I don’t opt for any of the paid features (such as thumb nail on item list).

        However, I find that the sales is worse without listing using the paid features.

        Squidoo doesn’t has any module that link to ebay.com.my, only ebay.com. If you are selling it to US readers, Squidoo is a great tool to promote your ebay store.
