I sell DVDs and CDs on eBay. It used to be lucrative but not so much anymore. Anyone here sells on eBay? How is it going for you?
I've sold quite a few things on eBay. I've gotten lucky on occasion by selling a rare yardsale finds or things or collectibles that I retained from my childhood. Some examples of things that I've had good luck selling on eBay include Legos, Apple products, old perfume bottles (empty or used), and broken high-end electronics. One time I even sold a bag of 100 Dasani bottle caps! I agree that eBay used to be way better; there's a lot more competition now.
Can't you use the Ebay forums rather than cluttering up HP with Ebay junk.
Good point. That is probably why I am not making much money on eBay. I am selling junk. Let me know if you are interested in checking out my junk. You seem to be an expert in discerning what is junk. I am sure you know what to do with clutter as well.
I used to sell on Ebay until the fraud became so overwhelming that I just gave it up. For what I was earning it just took up too much time. Now I buy occasionally but even then am very careful.
Buy on eBay during the summer. Then turnaround and and sell it on eBay during the fall/winter/spring.
Now that I think about it, would you like to start an eBay advice thread? It's been years since I've poked them with a stick, I could use the advice.
Edit. Never mind. You've already started one.
Yes. I could raise the prices but then they don't sell as quickly. Also, DVDs and such are becoming obsolete with streaming.
Yes. Any advice regarding eBay is more than welcomed. For example, besides Amazon, where else can one sell their wares?
Start the eBay thread. If you don't, I will. Objective is nuances. Also support for HP as to increased traffic.
HP had a link for eBay and HP took down eBay.
Typical, but who cares? Conversations are permitted.
Have really needed to get on a site and sell so much stuff that needs to go but for some reason have been phobic about doing it on Ebay - guess I hear so many bad things about it these days and forget that millions use it every day without problems.
Any way, have been looking for alternatives also and ran into this link which seems to give some good options:
And herbivorehippi has a hub on seven auction sites other than Ebay.
Just googling will bring up a lot of options … a lot of people aren't liking Ebay anymore …..
Yeah it is definitely tougher to sell on eBay then it used to be. You also have to be careful about pricing your products right. Over the years I've taken a loss on a few items but obviously I try and avoid that if at all possible. In those cases, my mistake has been to underestimate the cost of shipping.
Yes! Shipping is a semi-hidden cost I need to watch that more and price my goods accordingly. Yes. It is tougher to sell on eBay. If you look at the other people or companies selling on eBay, it looks like brick and mortar businesses. So, they are using eBay as another source.

I recently started selling stuff on ebay, and I was wondering if anyone else does it, and what your experience has been. I sell mostly clothes, and I find it very strange that the only thing people are buying from me is underwear and jock straps. (grin)I belong to a facebook ebay group, and...

I'm trying to expunge my account of all EBay products since I just realized they don't pay a commission and instead only pay pennies on large sales. Is there an easier method than going hub to hub and deleting them? ...

I'm just coming back after a several year hiatus, and one of the most exciting things that started when I was here was the HubChallenge. Originally, it was 30 hubs in 30 days. Now I see it's changed to either updating your hubs or 30 hubs in 60 days. I tried the original once, and I failed...
