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.
This isn’t just weird…it’s just gross!! So I’m thinking, why would this guy list this? Maybe he’s trying to up his new listings? LOL
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?
