What Sold On eBay
On Thursday, March 21, 2019, I sold one item on eBay.
1. I sold a Long Sleeve Halloween Scrub Top.
This was listed back in 2017 and is from a large lot of scrub tops that I picked up at a thrift store.
I reduced the price of the vast majority of our clothing by 50% today and this was one of those items. It sold at the new asking price.
Scrub tops were one of our “bread and butter” items back when I was picking up a lot of clothing. If I were to pick up any scrubs in the future I would stick with sizes XL and above with interesting prints. The smaller sizes, like most clothing, usually take longer to sell.
Other eBay Activity
Yesterday we did have one question (on a different scrub top) and one best offer that we countered (a game controller). Neither of those has gone anywhere yet, but some activity is better than none.
That said, we’ve only had two sales on eBay all week long. That is absolutely absurd given the amount of stock that we have listed on eBay.
Good ‘Til Canceled Feedback
From reports I’ve seen in various reselling groups, eBay has been getting a lot of negative feedback over the Good ‘Til Canceled change. One person even reported that the eBay rep told them they could see it getting reverted back. While I would take anything an eBay rep tells you with a grain of salt, that’s indeed my prediction.
What I find extremely odd about it is that there’s no value added with Good ‘Til Canceled for sellers or buyers. Speculation is that it’s SEO related, which I say is a moot point and not something most sellers would even care about nor want to know about. There are so many things that eBay could do to improve the platform, but changes like this are not one of them. Bottom line, no one was waiting to see this change and no one is going to be excited to see this change. At best the response would be “Meh”.
What did you sell yesterday and on what platforms? How are your sales going?
