May 26, 2016

You know, I’ve been doing this ebay business since 2012 and you’d think that I would be better at checking over the inventory that I bring home.

Vangoe.com – just imported my Ebay listings.

February 4, 2016

2/4/16 I just recently read about Vangoe on the Scavenger Life blog. So today I spent about 10 minutes signing up and importing all of my listings.  Like Bonanza, you can import all of your listings within a matter of minutes.  Super easy.  That’s what I like.  I’d probably be selling on Etsy if it were that easy to import the listings.  I’ve never taken …
