I've just gotten caught up on 100+ posts from this thread and I have to say thank you to all of the sellers that have contributed here. I've learned a ton and it's really great to hear of everyone's experiences. I've said before that I'm a small-timer on ebay and do it mostly to fund my own habits, but I think I'd like to step up my game. I have realized that I need to take a much closer look at my own sales to maximize my views and get the most out of my items. We're looking for a new apartment or (hopefully) a house. My wife even suggested that we dedicate a second bedroom to storage of our own clothes and an office/photography area for eBay stuff. Here are a few things that I feel I need to make sure I'm increasing sales/sale prices: - Get a mannequin: completed sales utilizing a mannequin are consistently higher than hanging/folded clothes - List regularly and for 10 days: I need to check if eBay.de charges fees for this. There are fee differences between ebay.com and ebay.de and ebay.de has been going through a number of changes in the last few months. Last time I listed we went from having 12 free photos to having 1 or two free photos. All others were .15 - Somehow reduce shipping costs or build them into the listing. I have had trouble walking the line between getting a decent price for something and breaking even. The Austrian/German market is incredibly sensitive and only certain items by certain brands bring in guaranteed minimum prices. Austria is a small country and about 75% of my sales go to Germany. Shipping is expensive from Germany ----> Austria and from Austria ----> Germany. The Germans have no idea what it costs, only what they THINK it should cost. Therefore, I get emails on about half of the shipments to Germany asking if I can send it cheaper, without insurance, slower, etc. I'm not sure how to get around these, but for the most part I enjoy selling and it provides some income to cover things like tailoring costs.
