My biggest issue is having space to hang things that go on a hanger! Hopefully I'll sell a bunch of the shirts I have on auction to make room!

I've been listing 15-25 items per day for the past couple of weeks. I'm getting more and more efficient at doing it. I'm trying to get to 50+ per day. This should get easier as I do more of my runs at night (since I'm training for a 24+ hour race, this actually makes sense).

I can't imagine…I have a hard enough time storing 100 or so items.

For the next 2 weeks or so I'm stockpiling because I'm switching my mannequin and adding a seamless paper backdrop. Once the setup is complete I'm going to cycle through my already listed suit/SC inventory and update the main photos so my listings look cohesive.

Almost organized.

Went through all my auctions this week, serializing everything.  Found a few items that were no longer listed.  The listings have just vanished.  Not cool.  Feel very organized though, glad I can just grab an item off the shelf and tape it up and slap a shipping label on it.  Lower left - a small sampling of my not yet listed pile.

 

Feuco, amazing that you can list 15-25/day.  That's awesome.  Day job (aka my company) and family take too much of my time to get that much done, I'm lucky to add 25 a week.

 

Brian - your auction template and pics are amazing.  I was lurking your auctions last week, really impressive!  I also like that you have the ebay pics for the mobile guys and good sized pics in the auction.  Absolutely the way to go IMO.

I have an office and three closets (two separate rooms). I sold a few bulky things today. That's the stuff that feels the most productive to get rid of!

It does also help that some of my stuff is stored at a local bike shop. That's about 1/10th of my active listings with a lot more coming.

Fueco I'm still amazed at how quickly you got up to speed.  25 listings a day is Spoo status!

And the fact that your looking to increase to 50 a day is amazing.

Where do you have enough inventory to keep up with putting 350 items a week?

post #6833 of 16171
Good question... I just finished item #18 for today... Most is now going to auction. This has become a full time job very quickly. As I get more volume, my process will get more efficient.

Edit: once I catch up with my backlog, my aim is to have only items currently listed or scheduled in my storage area.

Searched, but didn't see this problem addressed, so hopefully it's not a redundant question. Has anyone had a buyer not pay, relisted the item and gotten a bid from the same person under a new account name (as in zero feedback)? If so, what did you do about it? Did ebay help (stupid question, I know)?

If you know for sure it's the same person:

 

To cancel a bid:
  1. Enter the item number, the user ID of the member whose bid you're canceling, and the reason you're canceling the bid.

  2. Click cancel bid.

Can you explain how you do this? Do you assign a number to each item upon purchasing?  

 

Believe it or not, while I probably have one of the most extensive inventory "collections" in this group, I have no orderly inventory system in place. I basically memorize where I put everything.

Hi folks,

 

I spent some time on Sunday re-designing my store site. I had been waiting for GarageSale to release a new template that allowed more customization than some their other templates and would let me do the changes I wanted. 

 

Would love any constructive feedback on the presentation.

 

1. developed a wall paper based on a base of a brown paper bag, with a repeating pattern of clothing outlines

2. New Header/Logo

3. New layout with T&Cs at the side (all ebay frames and headers turned off)

 

I'm also dinking around with the first image of the listing. It always bugs me that it gets letterboxed so I've starting cropping an image in a square to completely fill the ebay photo placeholder in the top part of the description. It also appears larger than a traditional landscape image if you're looking at it in a search list, but not as big an image in Portrait. 

 

At any rate, here's a listing with a square image:

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/HANDSOME-HICKEY-FREEMAN-Herringbone-Tweed-Sports-Coat-Jacket-SZ-42R-USA-Grey-/251374876102?pt=US_CSA_MC_Blazers_Sport_Coats&hash=item3a871c35c6

 

And here's one done the old way with an image straight from the camera

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/CLASSIC-Bottany-500-HARRIS-TWEED-Blazer-Jacket-Sports-Coat-Sz-40-Gray-H-Bone-USA-/251374876123?pt=US_CSA_MC_Blazers_Sport_Coats&hash=item3a871c35db

 

Again, feedback on look/feel/content or anything that helps me improve I will gratefully accept.

Hey! I'm still looking through things, and I'll provide more feedback in the direction you requested later, but in your *"About Me" section, second to last sentence at the end of the sentence, "to" should be "too".
