My First Real Sale on Ebay

Today, I had my first real sale on ebay (selling ebooks for 10 pesos doesn’t count).  I sold my old Nokia 8250 for 10% of what I paid for it in the year 2000.  After exchanging emails about contact info and mode payment  from the buyer, we agreed to close the sale.  So today, I went to SM to  go the nearest Western Union outlet to find out that it closed there, so I just inquired about the shipping cost (shouldered by the buyer).  I then went in search for a Western Union outlet, and I passed by a bank which has a WU sign near Robinsons and I went inside, only to find out that they do not accept remittance on this particular day (grrr excited pa naman ako).   So I remembered that they have this big outlet in Robinsons so I went there.  When I finally got there, it was so easy to get the money, just fill out a small form and wait a moment for your name to be called, and voila! CASH!!.
After getting the money, with the phone at hand…Neneng and I went to KFC, I made libre because she drove me around today, its her reward (hehe).  After that I tried mailing it na and they wont accept it because they have no sealer.  Duh! Its their loss, turning away business because they lack some kind of machine.  What kind of forwarding company are they not to have that kind of vital piece of machine? Its their loss.  Anyway, I went back to SM and sent it thru another company, no questions asked.
As I left the shop, I felt okay, my transaction was complete, the phone was sent, I have my money na… until a little later when I felt this kind of loss.  I felt like I lost my arm or something.  I already missed my phone, I must not be ready to part ways with it.  I felt like a child not wanting to share her toys.  I then remembered why I sold the phone in the first place, it was just rotting away here and I wanted it to have a new home, somewhere where it would be of use again.  *sigh* Goodbye old friend, make me proud!
So I’ve learned something today,  I now know how to complete a sale on Ebay that requires shipping.  Which cargo service to use, payment options etc, stuff that would help me with my next sale (I have another phone on the bidding block).  Wahaha!
