    Hello everyone!
    I make quilts during the year and then sell them during November and December for extra Christmas money. My sister recently told me that E-bay had hand-made quilts on their site and had the prices were a lot more than the prices that I had on my quilts. Have any of you sold your quilts on E-Bay, and if you have , how reliable is the payment system?

    I don't sell on ebay, but they use the papal system so I think it is pretty reliable. I would recommend you always do delivery confirmation. Then you know someone doesn't try to scam you.

    I have sold on E-Bay but don't get much for the quilts. People just don't appreciate their value. I have not had a problem with getting paid - I use PAYPAL - don't send until I get paid. AND I DO get delivery confirmation.

    You can also take a look at etsy.com. Lots of handmade items there and the fees are much lower than ebay. You can accept PayPal there as well.
