This week we sold twice as much as last week. Why? If you sell regularly on eBay, you’ll notice that some weeks are slow and others busy. We did list like crazy this week, but what sold were a combination of older and newer items. We’re just happy for the sales and glad that our eBay income always seems to average out at the end of each month. Consistently listing quality items is the only secret.
We paid our 2014 taxes this week so feel good about our business. Our next trip is in two months, so we’re focusing on listing full time till then.
These are the links we discussed in the podcast:
—Vivian Maier, the street photographer who’s work was saved and discovered at an auction.
–Ryan at Online Selling Experiment explains a typical week in his growing Amazon business.
–We enjoyed this article detailing how eBay could get back to being the best Flea Market on the web.
–Jake, who created Watchcount sent us this cool tool that helps you see a buyer’s history.
