You may have noticed that some of your shipping prices have gone up in the past few days. It’s a bit frustrating, but USPS has increased their rates as of January 17, 2016. Even though there is a more expensive shipping rate, there have been some worthwhile upgrades to some of their services. It isn’t all bad!
Sometimes, a buyer doesn’t follow the rules set up on eBay or PayPal. This is part of the game, but it’s also infuriating. I’ll go over my case, my responses, and how I could have improved them along the way. I’m going to try really hard to not be emotional about this. I swear… even though it really does piss me off, though!
In November last year, I started to talk about my 5 step eBay process. Purchasing an item is the easy part. We’ve talked about how I do my eBay research and prep the item by using my spreadsheet. Today, I’m going to show how I measure, photograph, and store my item and all the fun, helpful tools that go along with that
Well, 2015 is done with! We had a fun holiday with lots of family time. I have one more day off (Monday) before I head back to work. Hopefully, I can clear through some more of my “to list” items!
Read on to see how my 2015 numbers looked and what’s on the horizon for 2016!
The holidays are a time for self reflection, food, and family – and maybe a few drinks 😉 Over the years, I’ve transitioned from wanting tons of gifts to enjoying giving them. Probably just a part of growing up.
I’m going to use the time off from my day job to work on getting my eBay piles back into order, and if you’re wondering, no, it isn’t too late to list that Christmas item!
I’ll be on a blog break until the new year, so until then, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Last week, reader Dana had a TON of awesome questions after I posted the spreadsheet that I use throughout my eBay process. Let’s call it a MEGA-comment.
I’m going to reply in a MEGA-Post! It’s probably my longest post yet, but I think it’s great for a reader to challenge my way of thinking. We get stuck in routines and assume that they’re the only way that we can do things. Finding out how others work lets us grow.
I’m listening to Scavenger Life again after my #NoNoiseNovember Challenge. They discussed ending and re-listing items using the Sell Similar instead of re-list. I’m trying to figure out if it’s genius or a complete waste of time.
Last week, we started the discussion about my eBay process, and I received a lot of help on the dress that I’m going to list. This week, I’m going to fill in the gap with how I store all of the information I gather during research and the ensuing steps of the process – a really big spreadsheet.
Facebook. It’s a blessing and a curse. Regardless of how much you love/hate the system, I’m pretty sure we’ve all fallen down the rabbit hole a few times and gotten caught up perusing someone else’s life events on their wall. Instead of getting of Facebook or unfriending everyone, I’ve found a tried and true method to cultivate my friends list instead of just swearing off of the system all together.
Even though I’ve been selling on eBay for almost 3 years now, I still come across a lot of items that I just don’t know anything about. It catches my eye, and now I need to research it! I need some help with this one. I can’t seem to find anything about this dress!
