I love changing my iPhone cover every once in a while and I am always on the lookout for new cute covers. My best friend in finding those covers for only a few euro’s is eBay! I will take you step by step through the process I follow when searching for new goodies! In order to do this yourself you will need 2 things: an eBay account and a PayPal account.
Accounts “check? Now we can start!
First of all open the eBay website and type what you are looking for in the search bar on top of the page and press “Search”:
When you did this you will get a list of “best matches” for your search. We will start by clicking the sort button and changing it to “Price + shipping: lowest first” and we will put the listings button on “buy it now”:
At the left side of the page you will see a sidebar and if you scroll down a bit you will be able to change some more settings. At the tab Delivery options you should check the “Free International shipping button”
You are now ready to start shopping (unless you want to specify your search a bit more, colour, brand, material,…). You can just scroll down through the results and when you have found what you are looking for you just click on the item.
When you open the item make sure to select the correct design and model you want to order and then you push the “but it now” button.
You will be redirected to a page where you can select your method of payment, I prefer working with PayPal because they have a very good insurance when it comes to not receiving an item or receiving an item that is broke. But I guess I don’t need to explain how a the payment page work ;)! And then the waiting begins… Most of the items come from China and it takes about 3-5 weeks for them to arrive. That is kind of the down side of this. On the other hand I always get an instant happy feeling when I see a package arriving after 3 weeks, because most of time by than I already forgot what I bought in the first place.
Another big PRO of eBay is that they have practically EVERYTHING, so this tips do not only work for phone covers, you can also use it to buy DIY patches to pimp out your outfits. And you can even buy tempered glasses to protect the screen of your phone! Here in Belgium they cost somewhere between € 15 -20 and you can score them on eBay for only € 2-3! I can really recommend using a tempered glass on your phone! That way I you drop your phone it is most likely the tempered glass breaks instead of your screen. You just take the glass of, clean your scream and put on a new glass to protect your phone again.
Here are a few of the covers I have scored on eBay lately, I hope you like them!
I am very curious if you guys have some shopping hacks too… Tell me all about it in the comments!
