Back on ebay

November 28th, 2009 at 08:23 am

I haven't listed anything on ebay for months, despite my own ebay challenge for the year. As the sidebar shows, I made nothing in July or August. September was great with book sale on Half.com and a little came in in October and November.

My wife actually spurred me to get back on ebay. We've been doing some housecleaning this weekend and she handed me a book/CD set she got at a work seminar last year and asked if I could sell it on ebay. I just listed it and found that an identical set sold last week for $22.50. I've be happy to get even my starting bid of $14.99.

Now I'm going to go down to my stock area and prepare some listings for Christmas collectible items. This week is prime time for selling that stuff.

Right now, my monthly average is only just over $70, not nearly the $100 goal I set for myself, but it's my own fault. Without this self-imposed challenge, though, I doubt I would have done anywhere near that much in sales so it certainly wasn't a failure.

I'll post a year-end summary at the end of next month. If anyone else took on this challenge, make sure you post your final numbers, too.

    You're right, this is prime time to be selling stuff, whether it's eBay or, for me, Craig's List.

    I've been selling stuff all week and hope to post more.

    I listed 6 items this afternoon. Two already have bids ($19.99 and $4.99) so that's another $25 at least toward my total. I'd have to make $420 to hit my challenge goal for the year. I could do that if I really wanted to, but I don't intend to. I've got too much going on to get that heavy into ebay this month.

    The great thing about ebay is that you can make as much as you want as long as you are willing to put in the time.

    Prime time indeed. My ebay history is so funny to look at - it picks up and slacks off at the same time each year. That's good to have bids on items already listed. I rarely get that lucky!
