Wow, I was worried that I wouldn’t have anything to post from this past week in sales. It was such a slow week.
I’ve been doing a lot of research into Ebay selling and best practices. One thing I’ve read about over and over again is to start offering free shipping on Ebay listings. There has been so much research into the topic that basically says people would rather pay a higher price on an item with free shipping. So just add the shipping into your price and offer the free shipping. Plus, it’s easier for the buyer to know exactly how much their spending rather than having to tally up the sale and shipping.
So towards the end of last week I thought I would test this out. I changed all of my listings to free shipping (and adjusted the price of my items). Well nothing was happening for a couple of days and then from Saturday through this morning, I made all of these sales. So maybe there is something to this Free Shipping.
I’m actually quite excited because I haven’t even been selling on Ebay for 6 months and in July I noticed that at my next evaluation coming up this month, I will have attained the Top Rated Seller status. Woohoo!!!
The TRS designation is pretty awesome as I will save 20% in Ebay fees, my listings will show up better in searches and customers tend to feel more comfortable buying from Top Rated Sellers. I will be writing more about that in upcoming posts.
So anyway, here is a list of what I sold between Saturday and Tuesday.

This might look a little funny to you because it is a screen capture from the mobile site. Much easier to get an overview for posting this way and keeps buyer info private.
So how have your Ebay sales been this week? I’d love to hear from you!
