Selling Bike Online

Can someone guide me through the steps to selling a bike online. I am fairly new to these kinds of things.

1) Don't expect more than 50% of what you paid for it originally. Start lower
2) Post a really good pic.
3) Give extensive details on your bike, including all dimensions.
4) Don't try to rip anybody off with packing charges. If you can't ship it anywhere in the Us for less than $40, you aren't packing it right.

High quality photos are very important along with detailed descriptions. The last two bikes I sold on Ebay, I got over 80% of what I originally paid for. One was a 2 year old MTB and another, an 8 year old street fixie.
