Welcome, Shawn. Yes, that's perfectly normal. It's just like anything else, it takes time and even nice things sometimes sit on the shelf for a while. That and the newer you are, the less exposure you have. Once you've done it a while, you reach a few milestones and eBay gives you higher search rankings.
Hi guy, I've been a long time lurker on SF but decided to join because I appreciate the wealth of knowledge on here!
I'm new to the whole eBay thing, and I recently put up a couple of thrift finds I'd like to flip for a couple of bucks. I've read quite a bit on the subject beforehand, and to my knowledge, I'm doing everything right to get maximum of views and bids (ending auctions on the weekends, low starting price, 14 days money back guarantee, clear and representative pictures, catchy titles, etc.) but no matter what, I don't get a lot of views and no bids at all.
Now, I don't want to look like the overly concerned newb, but I thought I'd ask: do you guys usually have to re-list your items a couple of times before you finally find your bidder/buyer?
I'm guessing it's just because I'm new to selling on eBay, I don't have a lot of feedback to back me up and it might make buyers weary.
Anyway, if you have any other tips to help me maximize my items exposure, I'd be grateful!
