Ebay Challenge Update 4/9

April 9th, 2009 at 01:04 pm

I haven't posted an update recently mainly because I had nothing to say. I haven't listed on ebay for 2 weeks so I've gotten off-track with my challenge.

Fortunately, half.com, which had been dead for a couple of months, picked back up. I've sold 2 books this week. One for $4.25 and one for $29.99.

That gives me $34.24 for April.

I do have a few items ready to be listed on ebay and just haven't done it yet. Perhaps I'll actually get them on this weekend.

    Everytime I see your update of the challenge, it reminds me to get off of my rump and put more items up for sale. We have some french doors that are quite large items and would be great to get rid of.

    Thanks for your updates. Congratulations on your half.com sales.

    Steve,
    I have been lagging on Ebay lately because of the increased fees. What a bummer.

    biff, I'm not bothered by the fees. It seems that when they raise one thing, they tend to lower something else. For example, I'm now able to post multiple photos of my collectible items for free. Before, the first photo was free and there was a charge for each additional photo. I would use Photoshop to combine views into one file, but it made for smaller images. Now, I don't have to waste my time doing that. I can just upload multiple full-size photos. It lets buyers get a better view and saves me time. I'm willing to pay a few cents more for that. Besides, the fees are still a great deal in my mind. About 15% of the sale goes to fees overall. It isn't as good as it used to be but it is still a great way to reach millions of prospective buyers.

    I'm with Aleta--
    I finally got around to posting a few things on Monday, and I'm surprised at how well they're doing.
    After Easter I'm swinging back into full gear.
