Selling CDs on eBay is much easier than selling larger items. Not only is it easy to sell new and used CDs, it is also easier to package and ship them once they have been sold. With eBay, there's no reason to keep any old CDs around. Turn them into cash, in one week or less.

Check the CD over for any damage or scratches. Play the CD to see if it has scratches; make sure it still plays well and does not skip.
Look for the UPC number located on the barcode. Type the UPC number into the "Sell Your Item" form in the CD category.
Scan the information that eBay lists about your CD. Check your CD against eBay's stock information and make sure that it matches exactly.
Enter any discrepancies into the description area. Include discrepancies in the cover art, if they exist.
Describe the condition of the CD. Use the form to indicate whether it is new or used.
Choose an auction length. Choose one week to get more bids, or less time if you need the money faster.
Package your CD after it sells. Choose protective padding to ensure that the case won't crack. Use bubble wrap or newspaper to cushion it. Ship the CD to the buyer quickly, in order to get good feedback for the next time you have CDs to sell.
Tips and warnings
- Never say a CD is brand new if it has been used. If in doubt, unsealed CDs should be listed as used.
