What Sold On eBay
From Friday through Sunday, April 12-14, 2019, I sold three items on eBay.
Georgetown Hoyas T-Shirt
I sold a Georgetown Hoyas T-Shirt via a 30% off sale.
This was listed in October 2018 and picked up in a bulk lot of similar shirts. I have more and all of them will be removed from eBay and added to Poshmark.
VERDICT: Don’t buy. Yes, I’m biased, as I don’t like listing clothing since it is so bulky, slow moving & prone to returns. Graphic t-shirts aren’t a bad clothing niche, so if you had the storage room & patience to sell them, the long game would be fine.
Eagle and Heart Cast Iron Trivet Set of 3 (2 Small, 1 Large)
I sold an Eagle and Heart Cast Iron Trivet Set of 3 (2 Small, 1 Large) at full asking price.
This was listed in September 2018 and picked up in an auction box lot.
VERDICT: It might sit a little while, but cast iron seems to be hot right now. Buy.
Disney Infinity 3.0 Star Wars Starter Pack for Xbox One
I sold Disney Infinity 3.0 Star Wars Starter Pack for Xbox One via Best Offer and 6.30% Promoted Listing.
This was listed in December 2018 and picked up along with a bunch of similar items at Toys R’ Us in early 2018 as they were clearing out inventory. There are plenty more for sale. Which platform do you need?
VERDICT: Don’t buy. While these do sell, they’re too bulky & heavy to be moving as slowly as they do. And the game is done. You’re at a 3-pound shipping rate and they take up a lot of valuable shelf space.
2019 Q2W2 (Week 15) Sales Recap
Quantity wise we had our best week since Week 5. Overall tied for #5 out of 15.
Dollar wise it ranks #8 out of 15. Mediocre, but it could be worse.
Almost everything was smalls. Slashing prices 50% across the board a few weeks ago seems to have made little impact. But I think it cleared out some deadstock, so that part is good.
Bottom line, every week has been higher than the previous one since we bottomed out for the year in Week 12. Let’s keep going up!
Weekly Listing Challenge for 2019 Q2 W3
The name of the listing game this week is Poshmark.
The main goal is to remove 100 clothing related items from eBay and to move them to Fazoom.com and Poshmark. The ultimate goal is to remove the majority of our clothing from eBay and to free up the listing space for more collectibles, antiques and other hard goods. Since clothing sells slowly I’d rather have them listed on a platform focused on clothing, and one that has an incentive to help move them since they don’t get paid until the item sells.
On eBay, my goal is a standing 10-a-day listing average Monday-Friday, which usually is done over 3 or 4 days. Some weeks I hit it. Other weeks I don’t. But I already have my 50 items lined up, so it should happen this week.
Weekly Listing Totals for 2019 Q2 W2
My listing goals were hit last week, so that was a good week!
