Do you sell books? On Ebay or Amazon? I sell most of my books on Amazon as it is much faster to list. If there is already an existing listing, it takes literally 30 seconds to list your item and you are done. No having to take pictures, write up a description or anything. Me ♥ that kind of listing. I do sometimes list on both Amazon and Ebay.
I go to the library about once per week with our kids or by ourselves – as we rent movies, audiobooks, magazines, etc. The last 2 times I went I bought a couple of books on a hunch. As soon as I got home, I listed each one on Amazon and both sold within a matter of days. Here are the books:
I bought the Book of Ties for $2..I knew there would be a collector for that one..it was printed in Italy. My profit after purchase price, Amazon fees and shipping was $20 plus change. I bought the Vintage Bar Ware book for 25 cents…yes, $.25. And you won’t believe what my profit on that one was..$39.75.
I was already at the library returning some books and checked out the section where the Friends of the Library donate books that you can buy. So no time sourcing. And seriously it took me not even a minute each time to list these. Maybe 20 minutes total to print invoice and package..I don’t even think it was that much time. So I made $59.75 for about 20 minutes of work. That translates to $179.25/hour. Not too shabby. I wish all transactions were this great. They certainly aren’t, but you never know what you’ll find!
Always keep an eye out for inventory when you are out an about!
Do you sell books? If so, do you sell on Amazon, Ebay or other avenue? I’d love to hear from you.
