    We won't get a 1099 if we didn't sell over 20k, right?


    Yep, it went up


    When you say "down", down as in more of a savings or down as in bad?


    Totally disagree. Women are the primary customers for re-sale, consignment and thrifts. Most of my women friends go to these places and they're def. not economically challenged. Their demographics say they wouldn't go to these places but they def. do. Women are more about bargains vs men, therefore, they shop at these places.

    Right, but I wonder how much of this is brick and mortar versus ebay.

    I have a friend that sells a ton of stuff on ebay and does pretty well and she only caters to a female audience. She just opened a consignment store in addition to her ebay biz. So there is definitely a market.

    I just wonder what the breakdown is between ebay and brick and mortar. Of course, these two things are not mutually exclusive!

    I believe it has to be both over 20k and 200, I was over 20k last year but only had about 90 transactions

    Postage went up and the discount went down (decreased). Meaning we pay more now.

    Flat rate Priority should have been just about $25. It would fit in a flat rate bag I'm sure.

    Hey..and where did you ship that 1930's Striped sweater off to?

    How do we "copy" the ebay selling items page like the guys do on the "What I'm Selling" thread? I mean the photos, links, and the ebay layout is just copied directly onto the posting on SF...how???

    Not to butt in , But I would have to say, that there is a lot more consignment geared towards women, because all in all the average woman buys more clothes. That is fact.

    LOL Yup thats my boy. Love him long time. Really happy I bought Rolexes from him prior to that though haha




    You guys are awesome, thanks for the nice words.

    I appreciate being benchmarked. I have large numbers next to all my platforms. Almost 12,000 feedback, 25,000 transactions, 25,000 posts here, several thousand tumblr followers, a few hundred on instagram, a decade plus of selling online. I have a lot of exposure and a lot of interaction.

    But make no mistake, for each one of those numbers, a sacrifice of something was made - time, fun, sleep, something. No complaints, no changes, but just realize for those starting out, its not overnight. Be consistent, and if you are going headlong into the hustle, be prepared to give something up, sell some shit for less than you thought, and take the bumps and bruises before you start reaping rewards.

    Ugh got neutral feedback from a zero feedback Korean buyer. Nothing but this symbol: "ㅋ" any ideas what it means? Other than wiki saying it means laugh

    Help with sizing on this Principle Jacket...smallest Jacket I've encountered...
    Measures like a 34/35...its not quite a 36, I tried to stretch my ruler, but cannot fool myself. They even make OTR shit that small? No tags whatsoever on this besides label.

    Well said, as others have done as well...All I can say is, IM IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL!!! Sacrifice comes early, and stays around the most...that is my experience thus far. But consistency will allow me to reap the rewards...Also, It is Important to create beliefs in a business plan, so you have something to justify your hard work and remind you about what you have set out to do! Its early for me in the journey, but I have big goals and dreams to expand!

    I would call it a 35R. IME smaller-sized stuff goes as quickly on SF as it does on ebay.
