Selling an iPhone 5C on eBay requires setting up a free seller's account at eBay and creating an auction listing that includes a full description of the phone and a clear photo of the phone for sale. Once the phone is listed at eBay, sellers must manage the listing.
Setting up an eBay seller account involves confirming a seller name, address and phone number and requires choosing an automatic payment method. Before creating a listing, it's a good idea to research live auction listings for the iPhone 5C to find out what buyers are currently willing to pay. Sellers can find the average selling price on eBay by visiting the cell phones and PDAs seller central page on eBay. Sellers can offer used iPhones with existing contracts and phones with prepaid service. Details of any service provided for the phone must be explained clearly within the item description.
Selling an unlocked used iPhone often attracts buyers who travel and international buyers because unlocked phones are able to function using any carrier's SIM card. Including descriptive keywords in the eBay listing title is a good way to attract interested buyers. Being precise is important, because titles are limited to 55 characters. The item description for an iPhone needs to include information about size, technology, carriers and accessories.
