Just listed 6 items on ebay!

December 27th, 2007 at 01:40 pm

As per my earlier post, one goal for 2008 is to start selling on ebay again, partly to make a few bucks and partly to declutter the house.

I was going to wait until after the first of the year to start, but then I saw on one of the boards that ebay had a 10-cent listing fee sale today, so I figured I should take advantage of that. I listed 6 items. Normally, the listing fee would be $.40. Today it was $.10. So I saved $1.80 by listing those items today.

Now I just have to sit back and watch and hope they sell. Anything that doesn't sell will either go in the yard sale pile or to Goodwill. No matter what, it will be gone soon.

    Congratulations on listing your items. I've wanted to do the same thing, but I'm not sure about how to handle the shipping of items other than books and movies. Good luck on your sales!

    collegemomma - Shipping is pretty simple. You can use the online calculator at usps.com to figure costs. You can also order FREE Priority Mail boxes there. If you need packing materials, like bubble wrap, padded envelopes, etc. I'd suggest buying those on ebay as the prices are far better than at your local office supply store. I get packing peanuts for free by just saving them throughout the year at home and work. Tell your friends and family to save them for you. I've got several 30 gallon trashbags full of them that didn't cost me a penny. Finally, you need a good scale. You can get a decent one on ebay or Staples for $20-$30.

    Thank you, disneysteve, for the great info! I think I may gather some supplies and then try it out.
