Congratulations! I am about to attempt selling on ebay for the second time, and hopefully this time I will have a better understanding of how to "sell."
Congratulations, Sally. Thanks for letting us know that it does happen!
Never lose faith. Miracles still do happen, even if it takes
years!! Now, you can go out and buy yourself that hot chocolate and a scone!
You bet ya! Jam and cream it is!
But, I would not get used to such luxuries. It just might be
another two years......well, you know, with the economy and
In fact it might be wise to take a photo of this extravagance.
It could be a lovely memory one day. Or, better yet, PROOF that these things really do exist. Ya know, we are still going around and around about UFOs and aliens. A simple photo would have put it all to rest.
Yes, I think a photo of your e-bay sale would be a very smart move.
Good for you sallybea! Ebay is one tough cookie to make sales from.
I have pretty good hopes now we have a Buy It Now Option. It was never going to work any other way unless clicks were counted.
Well done Sally. I have made money from eBay sales but still nothing from Amazon, so go figure.
That is interesting - why would that be? I have pretty regular sales from Amazon. I do need to get back to adding more e-Bay ads to my hubs - as I removed them when they were failing so badly. Early days, I think e-Bay sales are a little more lucrative thus far.
It makes it worth while when you get an actual sale!! I recently got one that paid me $26!!!!! Seriously!!! I could not believe it.
donotfear: We aren't supposed to disclose earnings. Just go back and edit your post, taking out actual earnings. Congrats on your humongous sale!
What sort of items do you sell on Ebay. I assume that it is "Buy it Now" products and not auctions. I have never looked into Ebay, since people were complaining of no sales for as long as I have been here.
We have a new Buy It Now feature for e-Bay. All your ads should relate specifically to subject or product you are writing about. Many of my hubs are related to a niche subject but there is no reason why you can't write on your own specific hobby or interest. Gear your ads to these subjects and place your ad next to where you are writing about the product.
I have sold a few eBay and Amazon items on my Hubs. I'm not setting an records but I do appreciate the extra bucks. I really try to find Amazon/eBay (Buy-It-Nows from Powersellers) that really go with the Hub.
dougwest1: I have never sold and eBay item, but the mention of power sellers gave me an idea to try. I try to only use the buy it now rather than strictly auction buying.
I have only ever made a couple of eBay sales and these I felt were more luck than intent as the buyer had to win the auction etc. Thank you for mentioning to option to use Buy it now from power sellers. This knowledge may make it easier to actually get some conversions going. I had not realized that this was a possibility being new from Squidoo!
The Buy It Now option only uses this option - no auction items as far as I am aware.

When was the last time you earned anything from placing an e-Bay Ad?I sometimes wonder why I bother placing e-Bay ads on my Hubs.. In the two years I have been writing here, I have never received one dime, Is it as likely as my landing on the moon?

I've had plenty of clicks through Amazon, but no sales until now. I've even had Adsense clicks on my product hubs, but no Amazon sales.Anyway, I earned $1 on Amazon from a pair of shoes that somebody purchased! As you can see, I'm pretty excited! Just wanted to share. I was...

I check my Adsense twice a day and am continually refreshing till Amazon rolls over at the end of the day as well. I've finally reached the point where I might get a sale every second day or so, although no one seems to want to buy more than one or two items (c'mon, someone, go on a shopping...

Hello MatthewPlease could you look into the possibility of providing a Buy it Now option for e-Bay Ads as has been done with Amazon. Most writers on the site have removed all e-bay ads from their hubs It was better when we were paid by click - even though the resulting income from...
