List a tamale machine for sale by creating an online ad on an auction or classifieds sites such as eBay or Craigslist, and include pictures of the machine, as well as a description of its condition and features. The ad also needs to have a price and contact information.
The first step to selling a tamale machine online is determining its value. This is done by examining the machine to make sure all of its parts and components are clean and in good working order. If the machine is missing a component or is broken in any way it should receive a lower price. Sites such as eBay allow users to search through historical listings to see what other users paid for different tamale machines, which is helpful in setting a reasonable price.
Once the price is set, the next step is to write a clear description of the machine. Include information about the type of tamale mixes the machine uses, how many tamales it makes in a given period of time and how old it is. A successful listing also has pictures of the machine that show it in full and up close so that potential buyers understand what is included in the machine. All this information is then posted to the appropriate site along with a way for buyers to contact the seller.
