A slow week if you exclude the anomaly that was our highest sale ever, an $1800 piece of fabric. We've continued to pursue our Amazon FBA experiment with good results. It's like learning a new online selling puzzle. We still love eBay for selling weird, one of a kind, vintage items though. If you haven't listened, we posted an interview with Mark, an accountant who specializes in online businesses. We also just posted a new interview on Shampoo and Booze. Check em out. Hope all of your weeks pick up!
Links we talked about in this show:
- eBay's new Monthly Evaluation, now shows your return rate.
