Before we get started though, has anyone else received the 2,000 free listings promo?! I was beginning to think we were never going to get another one, but lo and behold one showed up yesterday morning, only a few days off schedule! I was super excited about this, because I don't EVER pay for insertion fees. I don't believe I should because: 1.) It cuts into my profits big time since I only get 150 free listings each month, and I have almost 540 items in my store and 2.) If eBay offers me free listings twice a month, I think I should just wait it out and use those when I need to relist old items! My plans for listing are this: list all the new items whenever I can throughout the month using my 150 free and only relist or sell similar when I get a free listing promotion. So far this tactic has worked out great for me and has saved me a ton of money!
On another note, SUMMER IS HERE!! I finished my junior year of high school Friday! I'm super excited, because this summer, since the boyfriend has moved away, I will be spending practically ALL of my time eBaying, yardsaling, and going to estate sales and auctions! I know I've talked a lot about my college courses this past year, but yes, I am still in high school. I just took 12 hours this past year to get me a little ahead for when I do go to college full time. I've been a home schooled student for around 5 years now, and this has definitely given me plenty of time to work on my ever growing eBay business! I did have the option to graduate early this year, (at the age of 17!), since I've completed all the courses required to graduate high school, but instead of graduating a year early, I'm going to wait another year and spend my senior year applying for scholarships, taking 6 more college credit hours, and of course, working on eBay! This next year will bring a lot of changes into my life, but I'm for sure going to continue my eBay career.
Anyways! Off of my life and onto the sales for this past week!
Total number of items listed: 539 (I listed around 25 items yesterday!)
Total number of items sold: 18
Total amount before fees: $386.75
1 unpaid item case and 1 cancelled transaction totaling -$169.95
So that drops my weekly total down to: $216.80 for 16 sales. not bad, but not great either!
So! My cancelled item.. I sold a vintage Brioni blazer for $149.95. The buyer messaged me two days later saying that they never bought the item and that it wasn't even their size! Oh well. That transaction got cancelled and the item is relisted...
My sales this week mainly consisted of shoes.
This pair of Under Armour shoes sold last week for $12, but the buyer never paid, so I relisted them, and they sold AGAIN for $12 +shipping. I paid $1-$2 I can't remember exactly..
I bought a boat-load of clothes last summer for like $0.50 a piece, and I JUST got them listed last week. This khaki vest sold for a best offer of $12.10 +shipping.
These Nike cleats sold for $14.95 +shipping.
My aunt bought this Pamper Chef pizza stone for me at the Goodwill for $2. It finally sold for a best offer of $25 +shipping.
This VAIL cap was given to me, and it sold for $12.95 +Shipping. Caps sell!
My grandma gave me these Mudd heels. I sold them for $10 +shipping.
I sold these Puma high top sneakers for $25 +shipping. I paid $1 for them!
Finally, my grandma gave mom this cat cake pan, and it sold for $12.95 +shipping to Australia.
That's it for me everyone! I hope you all are having a great week and are excited for a great summer!
Thanks for reading!
