Is ebay a good place to sell originals?

Hey there! I am trying out ebay to sell my original oil paintings. I am going to experiment and see if I get any bites. if ebay doesn't work out, what would you recommend?

Also I think next time I might have to sell my oil paintings for a bit higher since I might be low balling myself here.

Do you like ebay? have you successfully sold any paintings on there?

go to ebay, go to the category you would be listed under, go to "ending soonest" and I think you'll find nothing sells.

I always search sold listings to see what really sells.

It doesn't work for what I sell now, but in the past I did fine with other kinds of art.

Give Ebay a try!
Use keywords, that are relevant, for your title line.
Be sure to use the words "original" and "painting" in your title line.
And, of course, use other keywords that pertain to the subject of your paintings.

If your paintings don't sell the first time you list them, relist them.
