It is nice out, meaning a little cooler, today here in Florida and I’m torn between going out to see some yard sales or going thrifting or listing. Listing is going to win today. My desk is piled with clothing to list and I have 20 items that have been photographed by my helper and I need to finish the listings. My goal for today is 50 listings.
I’m probably going to watch you tube videos while I list. I’m curious about how the ebay clothing sellers are feeling about the free return seller update thing. Who are your favorite you tubers to watch while listing?
Are you listing today? Do you list more during the week or on the weekend? What is your listing goal for Saturday?

Oh Katie! I am lollygagging in my kitchen and only have 10 drafts. BUT, the idea that I can still beat you out in the death pile challenge this week is motivating me to get working!!! You should just go out sourcing….LOL 🙂 Marjean28

oh, I forgot to answer your questions…No way am I doing free returns on any clothing. That’s going to be a killer. I may consider it for other things because typically, I don’t even actually have someone return anything. I just do the full refund, mostly because I source for less than $1 so it’s cheaper just to let the item go. I watch scavenger life, craigslist hunter, honestly ophelia, Texas Treasure Gal, photography how-to videos, the folks who post videos on scavenger life in the wednesday what sold section of the forum, and I try to avoid folks like Nicole State and others who focus on current day clothing items.

Saturday 3/3/18 You Tube Video Summaries:
Lindey Glenn: On her “Weekly Live Q&A” she discussed the seller update and said that she didn’t think the changes were a big deal. She said that most people are worried about the free returns but that she thought people were misunderstanding this, that you could still be top rated and not offer the free returns; the free returns would give you the top rated plus benefits. She thought that this would just be about a $35 difference to her per month so she didn’t think it was too bad. She said that she would not be offering free returns on jeans because most of the time they are over 1 pound and go priority. She said you can pick and choose with the free returns. She said that after the change if she noticed a dramatic dip in her sales, only then would she consider the free returns for first class only. She was also disappointed that there was no store level created between premium and anchor. She also said that she’s had a big problem with non paying buyers lately. She said she might switch away from best offer to avoid the non paying buyer problem in the future. She also predicts that a lot of ebay sellers who do clothing will switch to Poshmark where the fee structure seems easier to understand even though it is higher at 20%; but the work seems more than ebay. She also said she was considering Mercari. She had a nice shipping table in the background that she got for $80.

Saturday 3/3/18 You Tube Video Summaries:
Ralli Roots: They are a husband and wife reseller team who live near Tampa, FL.
The Perfect ebay flat lay – Giant Hanger: They DIY a big hanger for shirts – it is worth a watch if you sell clothing. I think I might try it. They got the idea from Side Hustle Pros.
What Sold on eBay: I’m glad to see more of these types of videos. They do free shipping and they do a lot of clothing. They do a lot of garage sales and thrift stores.
Vlog / She almost got arrested at goodwill: A day in the life type thrifting video. Well lit and fun. This time they compare Salvation Army to Goodwill.

3 Fashion hacks: menswear for women; summer bags, color combo pink & red
Seller update: (I couldn’t find this on the ebay channels). Nicole State & Reezy Resells has video of the ebay meet up with Griff where they talk about the seller updates. The main point of the talk was structured data and the way that ebay is going to get better for the buyers and searching.
Ebay Radio: I haven’t listened for several months. I’m listening to the 3/1/18 episode: They are encouraging the free returns.

Ok, I’ve switched over to Hulu and I’m watching an Irish show called Divorce. They had a series called Moone Boy which was also from Ireland and was super funny.
I’m at 27 listings so far which seems a bit slow but I’m going to keep on until I hit 50.

I plan on listing on Ebay for the next 2-3 hours. 25 items were listed yesterday, and I have already sold 1 so far out of that listing binge. Have another 10-15 items to list that were also photographed yesterday. I will work on those first.
I’ve been listening to the Reezy Resells/Book Flipper guy discussing the new long term storage fee changes for Amazon FBA sellers. I have around 50-100 books set aside for FBA, but I think I’ll donate the majority of them and list a few MF. FBA really does not seem worth it!

14 items listed today. Photographing another pile of items that I hope to get listed today. If not, I have that leg up for tomorrow.
03/03/2018 at 4:36 pm #34337
Yay, 25 items listed! More than I was expecting to get done today. 🙂
03/03/2018 at 5:43 pm #34342
I ended up with 45 for the day

Almasty, don’t you love a surprise like that? Way to go sneaking out a higher number than you thought!
KatieScott, wow! Very impressive! I was thinking I finally got you, but alas, fell short! I got up 41, and it took me getting my husbands help to do it. He went down the rabbit hole for an hour trying to recreate a broken hinge on a $15 cutler set cover. He kept saying, I’m having fun, don’t yell at me. I was silently rolling my eyes the whole time! LOL! But that’s a record day for me, so I’m thrilled. It took chasing you to get that done!
Go trash elves 🙂
