How to Share Your eBay Auctions on Facebook

eBay auctions allow you to make room in your closet and some extra cash at the same time. The more bids you receive on an auction item, the more money you can make. Maximise your auctions' exposure by sharing each listed item with Facebook. Your new auctions will appear in the news feed of your contacts along with a link that leads straight to the page where people can bid. Linking eBay with Facebook is initiated through your eBay account.
