Question

How do I sell my first item on Ebay?

I listed it once for 3 days and none bid on it, now I listed it again and still no bids. I'm selling some some video game called Final Fantasy VII, on other same items there are a lot of bids but why none bids on mine?

I put it on auction, the starting bid is only 0.99$.

Please help.

Try 7 or 10 day auction - with new sellers, you are not easily found by potential buyers and the longer time period get's you more time to have watchers/bidders.
Personally I do not recommend auctions - I sell mostly buy it now, or if I do have an auction I also add the option OR buy it now. I agree with the previous answer - some things to check on.

OK, I'll critique your auction.

"WE USUALLY SHIP WHITIN 1-2 DAYS AFTER RECEIVING CLEARED PAYMENT"
"WE SHIP THE ITEM WITHIN 1 DAY AFTER RECEIVING THE CLEARED PAYMENT."

Which is it? 1 day or 1-2 days?

WHY ARE YOU SCREAMING AT YOUR VISITORS IN BOLD CAPITAL LETTERS? DO YOU LIKE BEING SCREAMED AT? MOST PEOPLE DON'T.

Why are you running a reserve auction? People hate them. Just list your item at the lowest price you're willing to accept and get rid of the reserve.

Are you really in Mrkonjic Grad, Europe, Bosnia and Herzegovina? That's where the auction says you are. People in North America aren't likely to trust sellers in that area, especially if the same product is available here.

Return policy good, picture good, shipping cost good.

Your new account and 0 feedbacks as a seller will hurt you. You can help alleviate that by setting up an About Me page explaining why people should buy from you.
