My Amazon Experience

It is an old saying that it is always easy to buy than to sell and that is very true.

In early 2012, I bought HP Compaq nc6220 laptop to use as my second PC. It was my best companion when I used to travel. It had a gorgeous screen and a stylish design. Then I decided to sell it on Amazon which was not a new thing to me as I was in the business of selling laptops on Amazon for quite some time and I wanted to try out a new model. So then I listed my laptop on Amazon on December 5, thinking it would catch the interest of holiday shoppers. I put a reserve price on the laptop as well as offered the “Buy It Now” option.
