That’s a lot of items! How many do you have listed?

I stay at my free 50 item limit, and while it pays for my thrifting hobby, it hasn’t really kept up with cleaning out The Pile like I’d hoped.
I'll have 50-80 listed at any given time. I discount stuff fairly aggressively after 30 days to keep things moving and moreso after 60. That being said, my numbers aren't usually this high. I'm usually closer to 30-40 items sold every 90 days.

Why not just upgrade to a Starter Store subscription and double your "free" listings for $4.95/mo? Comes with lots of other features not available to the general seller.

Ten cents a listing? Nice! I think I’ll do this.

I didn’t know it was an option. I’m bad at googling eBay explanations; they always seem out of date and opaque, or return threads about people saying how horrible eBay is. :lol:

Here'e the link to store subscriptions.

At least it's supposed to be....though it doesn't look like that from the text it autofilled in the link.

I think I just had my quickest sale ever, at less than five minutes. Maybe I should have aimed higher with the price...

Speaking of which, I listed a women’s jacket 2 days ago. Checked yesterday to find that the size had disappeared. No other of my items seemed affected, but could be worth looking into if you listed in women’s coats/jackets category.

Dress shirts are normally neck size and sleeve length.

I normally measure neck and round down if the number is not on a quarter-inch increment. Sleeve length is determined the same way.
