I again used the shared eBay account to sell a couple more clothing items I have found around the house.
I got a sweater for Christmas last year that will not fit me and let’s face it, never will. I sold it for 1.25 with 3.95 shipping. Sounds great until I tell you I had to pay 7.90 to ship it. Lesson #2 Learned: Figure out the shipping costs….accurately. Guessing will not do it.
I also sold a pair of Children’s Place jeans. $1.04 plus 3.95 shipping. Not too bad either? Wrong. $3.80 shipping. UGH. Refer back to Lesson #2.
I also sold another pair of little girl jeans – but have yet to be paid….so we’ll see.
On top of 3 sales, I had 4 auctions that did not sell. 3 NWT (new with tags) pairs of junior jeans, and the toddler jeans (again).
So, at the end of this week, it occurred to me that the eBay account I share with my sister has its own email (we are big dorks) and that I have no idea how to get into it. It also occurred to me that I would need to receive emails from eBay if I am ever going to make money or have more than 3 listings! Then I got a new eBay user name. Problem: I am listed as 0 sales. Ok, this might take a while to get going.
