What is the most money you have made off of a single transaction. What was it that you sold?
Hello Dipless, Thank You for responding. I wasn't thinking about affiliate earnings, I was thinking independent sales on ebay. However, both are fine. I haven't been accepted by ebay as an affiliate either. I have been an ebay powerseller for a while, however I'm always open to learning more.
I have sold things on e-bay however didn't have the time to get the volume through to make a good amount of money as i found the profit levels too small.
What do you sell through e-bay?
I've sold a fair bit of stuff on Ebay down the years but I'm so half-assed and stoopid I do it in fits and starts.
Therefore I'm not sure.
I once sold two Irish dancing dress thingummybobs for a few hundred pounds.
Hello Frogdropping, Thank you for responding. All due respect, I have no idea of what you just said. lol
Damn my Portuguese. Sorry. Speaking in tongues.
I said ... I sold two dresses. For several hundred pounds. And that I have used Ebay and made money but I can't remember because I don't do it correctly.
Excellent, Thank You. However, I still don't know how much "hundred pounds" equal. lol
Are you my mum marine? You are - aren't you? Making me work hard. And behave as if I'm well-educated *sighs*
ok ... does £200 sound ok?
if its British pounds then its around $340 US dollars
$340 is good. I thought about buying womens/childrens clothes and reselling. Women are always looking to buy clothes. lol
I do this in the winter time. This may sound a little odd but larger women tend to buy more online than slender women. I think it has to do with going into a store to try things on... I could be wrong but I tend to look for US size 12 - 18 and stylish of course.
Excellent, I will do some comparisons when I have time. I know I always see womens clothing almost always with bidders. + Childrens clothing.
Maybe it's the availability? I imagine stores in larger-population areas have a wider range of sizes, but around here it's nearly impossible to find larger sizes in stores for either men or women. I didn't really realize this until I got together with my ex and suddenly had to go online to find 4X clothes and a size 14 ring.
Personally, my biggest eBay sale was $738 for a particularly nice emerald-cut topaz. I used to live almost solely off of eBay earnings, selling mostly gemstones and beads that I bought in bulk or found at estate sales and re-sold online and at local bazaars.
My single largest transaction was just before Christmas 2008, I sold a digital SLR camera and some complementing lenses for about $1200. The cool thing is I bought that at an estate sale for $150. I'm not a powerseller but I earn roughly $6000 a year.
Excellent Work. What kind of estate sale? A home auction?
The sole owner had died with no relatives and no will. Terrible but the estate was put into receivership and everything sold off at auction. I walked out with a bunch of goodies for less than $400 and netted me a couple grand, at least.
We have a side business (mainly my bf's) and sell vintage goods on E-bay. It's totaling about $1000 per month right now.
One thing that sells well is designer handbags--and they fit ALL women, thus, more possible buyers.
I have quite a bit of experience buying and selling children's clothing. I had a store for a while and did very well when it came to buying, but when the store closed and I needed to sell the stuff, not so good. I still have about 200 pieces to get rid of but at the going rate of about .25 per piece, it's not worth it. Currently I am selling custom made corsets, which is sporadic at best. When the last Star Wars movie came out, I was selling jedi costumes like crazy. But it only last for a few months. To be successful, I think you need to find a niche.
I used to be a powerseller on eBay. I used to sell video games. But the highest value item that I actually sold was power washers. I sold each of them for $350 dollars each. I used to get them for $290. Those were good times. I used to roll out 5 to 10 a week. Plus, what I cleared in video games.
I also sell on eBay and I would like to suggest going to the storage bin auctions.They are located in most any city.Your local news paper will run an ad letting the renters know they have so many days left to pay their rent or it will be sold at a on site auction.
Some auctioneers will sell the bins by the pieces if it's not to much in the bin.Some auctioneers will just sell the whole bin at one time.
Here is some great ideas I've got for you ,if you go to a storage bin auction:
1: First you need to take a friend or your spouse, because when they are selling at one bin the other person can go ahead to the next bin to get a good position to see all of the items coming up for sell.
2: Take a trailer to haul any of your purchases with you.You would not believe some of the things people would leave behind or just forget they have it rented.
3: Take a couple locks with you and a digital camera,because I've seen big engines that you could just take a picture of and list it when you get home.Don't forget you may need to rent it for a month just sell it.
4: If you have a cell phone with internet access you will be able to search the completed items of a product that may come up for bid.
5: I have found this to work pretty good.Stand close to the auctioneer so you can get your bid in at the minute.
6: One more important reminder "DON'T GET CAUGHT UP IN THE BIDDING"
The most I made at one time was around $320 but now those fees will kick your butt.
I've sold concert tickets for up to a $500 profit before. Reselling concert/event tickets can make for a nice supplemental income.

I joined ebay via hubpages 2 years ago and I have earned 2 dollars up until now. That's it. It is not working for me. God knows what is the problem.
I sold a World War I medal for $630 once. I listed it for $1 because it was something we happened to have in the house, and I didn't think it had much value - the name engraved on it wasn't a family member.
Other than that, I've sold about $3,000 worth of odds and ends, all stuff we already had (old clothes, pots and pans, crockery, cutlery, jewellery, stamp and coin collections). It's always the junk that gets the best price!
I just got me an $18 affiliate commission, that's my highest earnings on HubPages from one click yet so I'm happy for the rest of the day.
