While y'all are bragging about the size of your... haul to the PO. Did 50 this morning. Drove around back, they brought out a big laundry cart to fill up. Biggest single day # wise, but waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many auctions went at $9.99. Got to clear out a bunch of dogs though. The shelves are ready to be refilled with all the stuff I have hanging in my closet.
When I first started, someone here warned against using the eBay shipping, said to ship through PP. I've been using the eBay multi-ship thing for a couple weeks now, and all I can say is they've fixed whatever may have been wrong with it, because it's awesome. All 50 this morning took me about 2:15 from walking into the office to out the door. It helps to have a fast laser printer, but the biggest time savings was being able to check/fix the shipping method and weight of all of the items on one screen. If you've ever used the auction manager that lets you change a bunch of auctions at once, it's like that, then you hit the pay now and print all the labels at once with a package list so you can ID the labels and put them on the right package.
