Loving Half.com

September 8th, 2009 at 12:05 pm

I posted about this on the forums, but wanted to elaborate here. I have sold books on half.com for some time and it really seems to go in waves. I'll sell nothing for weeks and weeks and then all of a sudden, I'll have a slew of sales.

Last Sunday night, I listed 9 copies of a medical book I had gotten doing surveys online. By Friday, all 9 copies had sold. Not only that, but since then, 2 other books that I had listed weeks ago also sold. So that's 11 sales in 8 days.

For those who have books lying around that you don't need, this is a simple place to try and sell them. There is no cost unless the item sells. Half.com handles all the details and collects from the buyer and sends you a payment on your account twice each month automatically. It is much simpler than ebay.

    I love Half.com too. I have a few books that haven't sold, but I keep them listed because occasionally one will suddenly sell after sitting there for months or even over a year. Once in awhile I'll go in and lower the price by 50 cents to see if that helps it move; sometimes it does.

    You're right, it's really easy. And I find the fees really reasonable, especially since they usually give me a bit more for shipping reimbursement than I spend mailing the book.

    I have been selling lots in the past few weeks with Half.com as well. In the past month I have sold 25 books. I think the sudden uptick has to do with the start of the school year (a number have gone to university addresses). I suspect in a few weeks my sales will mostly stop.

    Still, it is so nice getting rid of these things you don't want and getting some money for them. Can't make a living doing it, but its much better than nothing.

    I do not know this half.com. I have been selling on ebay for years and the extra stream of income has been insurance for our budget. I need to check this place out.
