Have you heard about buying and selling goods on eBay but not had a clue where to begin? Help is on the way.

The U.S. Postal Service has teamed up with the powerhouse auction site to host eBay Days -- free informational seminars that are open to the public. The informational sessions in Denver will be held Aug. 24 to Aug. 26 at the Denver Mail Facility at 7500 East 53rd Place. eBay experts will be on hand to answer questions and teach the basics for beginners. Those who pre-register for the sessions can bring an item with them that they want to sell, and an eBay expert will go over with them the steps of selling it on the site.

If you already are a basic eBay seller, but want to be a Powerseller, these classes are for you as well:

Those who are already are active eBay sellers can also learn how to be a Powerseller, how to promote their products online and how to ship all of their packages without ever leaving their home.

I started using eBay when I was about to move last year. It is fun and profitable. I sold everything from used stereo speakers to a never-worn Hermes scarf that I forgot I had and found laying in the back of the closet after ten years. Now I use eBay all the time -- particularly to buy new goods that I don't feel like taking the time to shop for but know the exact item I want. A few clicks of the mouse and the next thing you know, it's in your mailbox -- and you've saved a few bucks.
