Postage is generally $2.09
Six words: Two Terabyte hard drives are $90.
For those of you who consign, what is your split percentage, after expenses? And how do you handle things like returns on consigned items? Actually, is there just a breakdown of the clothing consignment business I could read anywhere, preferably one that one of you wrote .
It does. I keep 3 copies. The active one on my laptop, and backups at home and at my office on 4tb drives. It has all of our family photos going back years before me. I had all my dad's photos and negatives scanned several years ago so I'd hate to lose it...as they say, I'm a belt and suspenders type of guy.
I also keep copies of my music library and my movie library on the same drives. Basically anything that would be a PITA to try to replace.
I started this before apple released time machine. It's probably not as important as it once was.
Too Good to be Threw : The Complete Operations Manual for Resale and Consignment Shops by Kate Holmes
Thank you, Brian. Was this your guide into the consignment business?
Let's say I have something that I think might be a knockoff, is it worth the risk to try to sell it on eBay?
No. Firstly it's pretty crappy to do to someone. Secondly you'll lose your account if they flag you. Thirdly if the buyer thinks it's fake you're out money for shipping the item in the first place.
That's what I was figuring. It's a sports jersey that was a gift, and is way too big for me. Based on the tags and lack of holograms, I'm pretty sure it's a knockoff. I almost wish the brand name tag wasn't on it... I'd be happy to sell it cheap with no expectations.
So if I buy something and it turns out to be fake, I still have to pay the return shipping in order to get a refund? That's a little ridic isn't it?
Actually no. It is a federal crime to mail a fake item. In this event you should contact eBay. The fake item is usually required to be destroyed, so please be sure it's fake.
