Ebay Challenge Update 2/4

February 4th, 2009 at 04:59 pm

My first ebay auctions of February ended tonight. WOW! 4 of my 5 auctions sold, which is fine, but 3 of those 4 got into major bidding wars between multiple bidders.

One item sold for $3.99 but the other 3 sold for $41.00, $31.20 and $45.44. That makes my February total so far $121.63. I surpassed my goal in just one week!

I listed 5 more items tonight but I don't expect anywhere near that much interest (or money) from this group of items.

    Wow! It is always nice when we are surprised with large bids on items we didn't want anymore. I'm going to have a hard time catching up!!

    There's no way I'll be able to keep up that pace myself. I'm glad the year got off to a strong start, though. In just over 1 month, I've met my average goal for more than 3 months. I'm sure that will even out later, though.

    That is great, disneysteve! A very encouraging start to the year, and may you keep it up.

    I'm at 18.36 for February. I was way up on my January totals and then remembered I should figure my net sales not my gross. I wasn't subtracting ebay, paypal and shipping fees. I'm still over 400.00 for Jan. I agree Steve, I won't be able to maintain that pace especially once gardening season starts. Let's make hay people!

    Martha, I set my goal based on sales for ease of tracking. Yes, not all of the numbers I'm reporting represent profit. There are fees and expenses to subtract, but when I sit down with my accountant next year and he asks what my total sales were for 2009, I want to be able to give him a number that is at least $1,200. In fact, I'm looking forward to doing my taxes this year and mentioning that I've already made however much it is for 2009 by the time I see him.
