I am now in the prepay for your offers group. The only thing I don’t like about that is that I can’t use eBay gift cards to pay for my order, I have to use a credit card. I buy eBay gift cards at my local grocery store for fuel points. Between Amazon and eBay gift card buying I’m able to have enough points to get $1.00 off per gallon of gas. It really makes a difference these days.
Love it! Gotta keep work fun.
My husband has this sixth sense for thrift stores too. He’ll be like, I need to go to X place today and find some incredible stuff for us to list.
I am also one of the unlucky ones forced to migrate to the new tool. The Custom Label field is there for me but prices disappear for me when I resume a draft. Now, I memorize the price before I enter a draft so I can reenter it.
I also miss the recommended item specifics. I dislike the new shipping pull downs. My default shipping now longer says default so I have to hunt around for it.
I liked the old version where everything was on the page and I could pick and choose items for my listing versus this new version with pull downs. 😛
Hi Retro –
I checked out your marker listing. I put 4 markers in my cart, discount was applied and shipping was free.
My county assesses a tax on inventory also. It’s based on your COGS. Thankfully there is a threshold of $250,000 and I’m usually under that so usually no taxes for me to pay.11/07/2021 at 8:24 pm in reply to: Arghh! Walmart stopped carrying square shipping boxes #93807
I buy from The Boxery too. Their products are good, prices are reasonable and they ship fast. When I need to order from them, I check between their website and eBay. Sometimes it’s cheaper to order from them on eBay.

My sales have been lower than usual the last few days too.
That is cool! I love this idea. Reminds me of buying stuff for my avatar/house on a video game. Does that mean we really are living in a simulation?
Your podcasts will be sorely missed! You two have been a constant in my life for so many years. You have passed on such great knowledge and shared so much of your lives. I hope you will keep the forums going and update us on your adventures from time to time. I’m hoping to make it to Luray at some point and try out your bakery/coffee shop. Wishing you two all the best and much success!!
Bookseller here. I have sold on ABE in the past. IMHO, it’s not worth the money to list there. I was lucky to sell 1 or 2 books a month at the end, when I finally closed my account with them. Your best bet is eBay or Amazon, that’s were most of my book sales are. Alibris has a deal where you pay $20 a year plus on each sale you pay 15% plus a $2.60 fee. You can also try Bonanza. You can sync your eBay account with your Bonanza account so there’s no extra work on uploading items to their site. I sell more on Bonanza than Alibris. There’s also Biblio. I haven’t sold there so no idea how sales are or what the costs are.05/26/2021 at 10:50 pm in reply to: Appears to be a PC Card video breakout cable: can anyone identify the brand? #88896
Had my son, the AV/IT guy, take a look. He says it looks like some sort of proprietary plug for a card bus device used in older laptops. Something like this: margi display to go
Here’s what sonny had to say: “It’s probably used for a second monitor or a capture device. I’m leaning more towards the second monitor option since most early 2000’s laptops didn’t always have a VGA or video adapter port. That is my best guess. With the double headed VGA thing, it could be for some sort of camera where you monitoring the feed from it too. ”
If you find out what it goes to, please post it because sonny is now curious too. lol
Pill box is what came to mind when I saw it.
Here’s a similar one I found on Google images:
Book dealer here. I second using addall.com/used/. If it’s not listed there then try googling the books. I have found that some older books just aren’t listed for sale anywhere and you’ll have to make up a price. I groaned where I read that they were in the basement. No fun hauling that many books up a flight of stairs. I’d list the political stuff first. We’ve been selling lots of those lately.
