So I’ll start by listing last week’s Ebay Sales (4/5 – 4/11)
Total Sales: $139.50
Items sold: 11
Average price sold: $12.68
Highest price item: 5 Disc CD Changer
Cost of good sold: $4.50
Last week was nothing to write home about, but I like to see the numbers. A lot of the items that sold were free that my hubby scavenged. And several of them were ones that I have tons of and I just keep relisting. I’d rather relist than offer a large quantity as that helps with new listings (supposedly keeps you higher in search results), but I also want to create demand, don’t want people thinking there are many available.
I’m so excited, and I just cannot hide it (singing in my head).
Last night I reached 400 items in my store. I don’t recall how long it’s taken this part-time seller to get there, but at one point last year, I think I was at 87 items. My goal is to get to 500 items soon.
I wish all of those items were higher dollar items, but they aren’t. And I’m totally okay with that. I also have a lot of unlisted inventory from when I first started that may not bring in much money. But I truly can’t bring myself to donate items if I know I can make a few bucks on them. It really doesn’t take long to photograph and list items, I just have to do it.
How to automatically increase your selling limits on Ebay.
So when I got to about 320 listings, I decided to upgrade my basic store subscription to the premium one. I checked the Fee Illustrator and it was going to be cheaper for me now that my listings were increasing. And as soon as I upgraded, I got the message above. I’m not a new seller, but I did have to call Ebay once this year asking for a selling increase. And then I got a an increase again simply by upgrading my store subscription. That will save me a phone call once I hit 700 items.
I thought it’d be fun to list some weird things I’ve come across on Ebay.
I also came across this one:
I was curious and did check back tomorrow. This image was still on there. LOL. I don’t recall what they were trying to sell though. I saved this on my desktop a little while ago and forgot to post it and now don’t remember what it was.
So what’s happening on the Ebay front with you guys?
