You get to set the price of the item, and all prices must be in $.50 increments, with a minimum price of $0.50.  When pricing, a good rule of thumb is 25% of the original purchase price.  If you wouldn’t buy it for that price, don’t sell it for that price.  If we receive an item that is not acceptable, we will donate it to charity or return the item to you.
