I had been selling online for my banknote and coin collection since 2003. You just need a little bit knowledge about Internet and you must know where do you want to sell your item. I have been starting with lelong.com.my and now with mudah.my. Nowadays, most seller like to put their item on eBay.my. Many people run away from lelong since so many fake items in their website on sale. Establish trust will have to take more time online then what it will take offline.
Other then that, you need to know a little bit of how to take a good picture of your items. Some people used camera, scanner or even your normal hand phone camera to take that clear picture for your potential buyer. I am just using my 5 years old Nikon Coolpix 7600 Compact Digital Camera to take my macro shot now. Some old coins will look dull using a scanner. Most of my picture still not perfect but so far most of my blog visitor come from my pictures.
Most of the time, my online sale end up to be offline sale because Malaysian afraid of a fraudster who doesn't send their item after make their payment. Some giving excuse not believing Poslaju (Malaysia premier courier service provider) as a reason to meet offline. I have been using Poslaju (not Posdaftar, Pos Express etc) since 2003 and they never failed to deliver my items so far. I don't mind meeting my customer but meeting up means wasting both our time and a little bit cost on money (Petrol). You should be saving a little bit money by buying online not paying more then your offline buying.
Trying to sell anything online is not easy but not that hard to do. Its not easy since we cannot communicate face to face with our buyer. Like most sells whether offline or online, most people will just asked and end up not buying your item. I cannot see my customer exact face and see what they want. I cannot create a communication since most of them just send me a short sms, asking if my item is available for sell or asking for a discount on my item. Most of the times when I asked them what do they need, my customer will flea away. Maybe, thinking that I mad at them asking so many question without buying any. I don't mind your question, as long as its not involved cost to me. I will try my best to answer them.
