Anyone who is anyone knows the damage an unhappy customer can do to their credibility on eBay.
But did you know that a mislabeled or underlabeled car DVD player listing can get you banned from eBay forever?
Thanks to stricter rules on customer satisfaction and listing details that match product quality, this is the case.
So how can you prevent this from happening to you?
To make sure your car DVD player doesn’t end your eBay career, it’s wise to include six things in your listings.
So what exactly are they and how can you include them?
*Condition of automotive DVD player
Almost everyone knows the danger of listing something new that isn’t exactly new, but did you know that if you don’t also include details like whether or not the player has been refurbished and if it has had any cosmetic damage you can also jeopardize your music business? eBay?
*The exact dimensions of the player
While most people think that all car DVD players come in two sizes, 1 DIN and 2 DIN, there is much more to it than that.
The Deutsches Institut für Normung standards for car DVD sizes only refer to the width and height of the drive. The depth of the automotive DVD player can vary greatly. Not only that, but some car in-dash DVD players have an extremely large faceplate that could obstruct other items in the dash.
As a result, it’s always a good idea to list exactly what the dimensions of everything in the player are.
A good example could be:
Dimensions: L:162 x W:178 x H:100 (mm): Length with front panel = 181 (mm)
*Car Video file formats and discs it accepts
Gone are the days when the average car DVD player only accepts DVD, CD, and VCD discs and only supports one or two media formats.
Today, with the rise of the computer and recordable discs, people expect portable DVD players to handle a variety of discs and media formats. And they expect you to tell them what the player can handle.
When including car DVD player details in your listing, be sure to list each type of disc separately and separate video, audio, and picture formats to make it clear to your potential customers what car DVD can do and what it can’t. it can not do.
A good example could be:
Discs: DVD, CD, VCD, CD-R
– Video formats: AVI, DIVX, WMA
– Audio formats: MP3, WMA
– Image formats: JPEG, GIF
*The TV signals with which it works
Not only is TV functionality an important feature in car DVD, but the signals being sent by broadcasters around the world are also changing.
Previously, resellers only had to worry about PAL, NTSC, and SECAM.
Now, with the gradual switch from analog to digital, you also have to worry about DVB, ATSC and ISDB.
This is especially important in the US, where people will buy a DVB player simply because it says it’s a digital TV player, even though US broadcasters use ATSC signals…and blame you when they don’t. they can get the signal they want.
One way to fix this in your listings could be to list the TV features like this:
DVB-T digital television
– Country presets for England, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Portugal, Greece, Russia, Czech Republic, Taiwan, China, Holland, Australia
*The outputs and inputs you have
People want to do more with their car DVD players than just use the radio, DVD and CD function these days.
They also want to plug in their iPods, USB sticks or SD cards, use them as a GPS receiver, display for a reversing camera, as well as transmit video and sound images to screens and speakers in the back of the car.
This is a good way to show people what they are getting:
– SD/MMC card slot for SD GPS card or SD card with media files
– DVD/CD drive
– iPod input (front)
– Mini-USB input (front)
– Auxiliary input (front)
– Reversing camera input (rear)
The only way you can keep your customers (and eBay’s law enforcement) happy is to give them the information they need in your listing. You will be able to guarantee a happy customer at the end of the day.
In this way, your popularity as a seller will increase and your ads will attract more customers.
