Here are the steps to selling your old postcards on eBay

Things You Will Need

  • Old Postcard
  • Ebay account
  • Access to Internet
  • Step 1

    Start by setting up your account on eBay. If you go over to their website, you will see step by step instructions to get your account going and be active.

    Step 2

    Now that you have your account on eBay, you need to take a close look at finding older postcards to sell. These postcards should definitely be used, have a stamp or postmark on the side and legible. While there may be bent corners or slight tears, the luring aspect of selling a postcard is the relic standpoint.

    Step 3

    If you don't' have any postcards in your current collections, you need to go out and find a few. Places to look include local estate sales, garage sales and even thrift stores. Expect to pay pennies for each card.

    Step 4

    Once you have your postcards, you need to begin posting them online. Keep in mind the buyer is looking for pictures - front and back, a description of issues - tears - folds, and a price. Be descriptive and bring the card to life per se. Keep in mind you need to price the postcard accordingly however that could be a minimum of $10 or more.

    Step 5

    Once you have completed the auction process and your funds are in the bank, take your postcard and carefully mail it to your buyer. Be sure to enclose a handwritten thank you note.

    Step 6

    After the old postcard has arrived and is now in the postcard collectors collection, sit back and be delighted in the fact you made easy cash just posting on eBay.
