eBay commonly used abbreviations

Posted by ebayprofitmaster on February 16, 2010

Let’s now take a look at some of the most commonly used abbreviations on eBay.

AUD: Stands for Australian Dollar.

BIN: This is the buy it now price. Aka a fixed price listing.

BNWT: Stands for Brand New With Tags. Also BNIB: Stands for brand new in box. NIB: Stands for new in box. Any new item that has not been used before and is either still in its box or has its original tags.

BW: Stands for black and white, which is used for films, photos and the like.

CONUS: Stands for continental us, which is used by those sellers who do not want to post items to Alaska or Hawaii.

EUR: Stands for Euro.

FC: Stands for First Class, and describes the type of postage service used.

GBP: Stands for Great British Pounds.

NR: Stands for No Reserve, which is a listing which does not have a minimum price set by the seller.

OB: Stands for original Box, this is where the item does have its original box (but might have been opened and used before).

PM: Stands for Priority Mail and describes the type of postage service used.

SH: Stands for shipping and handling, and describes the fees that the buyer will pay for postage.

USD: Stands for United States Dollars.

VGC: Stands for Very Good Condition, and basically means that the item is almost in mint condition, but not quite!

You are likely to find much more language used on eBay that you do not understand than we have covered here.

Try doing a Google search for any other terms you are struggling with.

It is very likely that someone else will have tried to get an explanation of the same thing, and you will find it online somewhere.

Sellers should avoid using too much technical language or risk loosing potential buyers.

You are now ready for your first auction.

We will get into that in my next post!
