Hello, all -- I thought this deserved a new thread. Â Like many on this board, I have often thought about buying great finds and reselling them on Ebay as a way to finance my clothing habit. Â Having never done it, I would be interested to hear from those who have about strategies, tips and pitfalls. Â Some questions I have would be: Â How do you calculate pricing? Â What are the best return policies? Â How quickly do various types of items tend to sell? Â What are some of the transaction costs involved, other than the time of maintaining and monitoring listings? Â What is the best payment system? Â What are some of your biggest successes and biggest mistakes? I realize that the answers to these things will depend on many factors, but I thought it would be fun to read some discussion of all this.
