Guide to Buying the Beep Test on eBay

The beep test (also known as the Multistage Fitness, MSFT, Bleep, PACER & Yo-Yo Endurance test) is one of the most commonly conducted fitness tests. One place you can find the test for sale to download the mp3 or buy the cd is on eBay. As purchasing products on eBay may be daunting for some people, I have written this simple guide. For places to buy the Beep Test cd other than on eBay, see the Beep Test Store. For more about the test itself, see the Beep Test Home.



What is Available

There are many versions of the beep test around, so when you are downloading or buying a cd make sure you are getting what you need. For more information about the different test versions, see Variations of the Beep Test. The beep test usually comes on a cd with full instructions recorded on the cd preceding the actual test, extra tracks suitable for training, a booklet with instructions and norm values, and some sort of guarantee. When you buy on eBay you may not be getting all these, if any. The quality may not be up to scratch, the timings may not be accurate, and the product may be pirated.

Some simply have a digital mp3 download of the test available, while others may send you a cd with the recording. If this is not what you are after, see the Beep Test Shop page where more reputable stores that stock the beep test cd are listed.

How to Get it

beep test cdOnce you are at the eBay website, search for the term 'Beep Test' (Bleep Test in the UK). If you don't find what you are lookig for, you may find more products by searching for other terms such as fitness test, bleep, shuttle run etc., or more importantly search using the local language. Although these products are available in specific countries, it does not matter where you live if you are simply downloading an mp3. Also, most of the sellers will post to your location wherever you are, though check postage rates before purchasing.

Can I trust them?

Generally you can. Under the Seller Details heading, there will be a link so that you can ask the seller a question. You should also look at the seller's feedback. Most purchasers will leave feedback and will say if the product or service was not up to scratch. If you pay through PayPal you may also be covered under the PayPal Buyer Protection Policy which will assist with resolving any disputes between the seller and buyer.

Shipping

You will need to look at each item's listing to determine if they ship to your destination, and what the cost will be. This can vary greatly. What may seem like a bargain may actually work out more once you factor in the cost of postage. If you are unsure, you can ask the seller a question.

Bidding

In order to make a bid on a product, you will need to register with eBay. Once you are registered and logged in, you are free to make a bid on anything you wish. Remember that any bid is binding. Once you have made a bid, you usually receive a daily email of items you are bidding on and their progress. You can also put the product on a 'watch list' and they will also keep you up to date on how that auction is going. On some products, there is a 'buy it now' price, so you can bypass the auction process and buy it immediately at that price. If the product will be listed on eBay Stores, then it will be listed at a set price.
