Re: What's the process for selling on ebay?
Depending on how much the shipping is you might want to consider adding that to the opening price of the drum and advertise it as free shipping within the US. Shipping costs can put people off. That way you are not going to get into any disputes about the cost being more or less what you charge and that will effect your ratings.
I would decide what is the least amount of money you want to get, add the shipping cost, add about 10 percent to take ebay and paypal fees into account and start it at that price. Put lots of buzz words in the title so people find it on searches, and describe every scratch, dent and cigarette burn in great detail, gives people confidence about what they are bidding on.
