I have sold several things on eBay. I’ve found that for some items, listing them the weekend of Thanksgiving is the best time. You’ve heard of “Black Monday?” It’s the biggest online shopping day of the year. Last year my kids sold their old Game Boy Advances and made quite a bit on them. It was a good lesson for them on how to sell, how much things cost to list, how much shipping costs. I gave them their money at the end of everything, when all fees had been reduced, including PayPal’s costs. Quite an eye-opener.
Make sure that when you’re looking at your items, you consider just how much the fees will be. That may lead you to just sell some stuff at a yard sale if your profit isn’t going to be worth the effort of listing and mailing.
I also agree with someone else’s suggestion about looking at other similar listings. I sold my daughter’s American Girl doll trunk and got a lot of money for it. I basically copied someone else’s listing. :teehee:
Have fun with it! Try listing something for fun and see how you do.
