That’s an impressive # of listings. May I ask what type of items are you listing? Seems like you can crank them up in quite a bit week after week.
Yikes, thank you for the heads up. I will need to go back and check up on this.
Wing it for me, however I do try my best to set a schedule but operating out of the house is very difficult as there are too many distractions. My ideal scenario would be to have a warehouse where I do business out of and can go and “clock in” 8 hours a day then “clock out”. Knowing that there is a clear separation, if I am at the warehouse it is work, when at the house it is family/personal time.
You should check out “My Boring Reseller Life” on Youtube. As of today, he is reaching 31,000 listings on eBay. He is a one man show, although he mostly sells media (records, CDs, cassettes) and hats which would make shipping a little bit faster, but it is doable going at it alone. I think he sells about $1,000 a day on average.01/17/2022 at 5:43 pm in reply to: Has anyone bought a shipping label from Canada Post? #94749
Thanks everyone for the replies. I do use GSP exclusively for larger, more expensive items. For any low priced items, that can be shipped cheaply via First Class International or Ebay’s Standard Delivery, I go that route as I get an increase in sales that make up for a situation like this if I have to take a complete hit. As for this case in specific, I did click on the option that I can’t send a shipping label and on the return it does mention to wait for buyer to send the item back. Who knows? It seems like the ball is already on the buyer’s side of the court. Only time will tell.01/15/2022 at 12:36 am in reply to: Has anyone bought a shipping label from Canada Post? #94700
Hi, Mark, thanks for the tip. Question, I did see that option, but what does that do exactly? Thanks
No, I do sell some clothing but I’m mostly a hard goods, “everything” store. Mostly sell vintage items, media (records, CDs, video games), toys, electronics, and everything in between. I’ve thought about going all in on just one platform but my original thought was to diversify and not have everything in one basket. Essentially, my original thinking was to have a backup to eBay in case it went belly up on us, for whatever the reason.
I wouldn’t want to derail the thread but I do disagree on the crossposting. I currently have around 5500 items on eBay and have been crosslisting to Mercari for about a year now and have about 1500 items there. Sales on Mercari are getting very close to those of eBay which is impressive because I don’t even have even a third than what I do on Ebay. From what I have seen, should I have the same number of listings on both platforms, I would definitely sell more on Mercari than what I do on eBay. Now, this is the only platform I crosslist to and do not have experience with other platforms as far as cross posting. As far as removing from one platform and vice versa when an item sells, I have gotten already used to always remove the items as soon as it sells through mobile device. It’s not that bad. It has been months since I had an item double selling and even then it wasn’t happening that often either. I’m top rated plus on eBay.
Hi, sorry for the lateness of my reply. I did not find it but a friend who I source from often did. We were trying to come up with a price that would work for us both. I did pay up a hefty penny but I was able to sell it in only a few days. Here’s the sold listing:
I think I could have gotten more for it but it was in rough shape and it needed quite a bit of restoration.
Same item as the top, just different listing, thank you.
I think they are messing around with the site. I was just listing some postcards and most of the categories in the postcard section are gone. I can now only choose “Topographical Postcards” or “Non-Topographical Postcards.” Hopefully this is not a permanent category adjustment as no one is going to be able to find any postcards under just those two sections.
Hi, Jay, are you guys still using inkfrog? I’m giving it a try just for listings backup for $30 seems a little steep, yet again if anything goes haywire with eBay (which does so more than not) it would actually be a very small price to pay for a backup. We currently have 5100 listings up.09/17/2021 at 4:41 pm in reply to: How To Handle Global Shipping NOT AS DESCRIBED Returns ( Please Read ) #93129
Just got off the phone with eBay and they mentioned the same line as always, to get a quote from the buyer so we can send the funds to them for the return shipping label.09/17/2021 at 3:54 pm in reply to: How To Handle Global Shipping NOT AS DESCRIBED Returns ( Please Read ) #93127
So I just received an Item NOT AS DESCRIBED case for Global Shipping Program order. I have not accepted the return or done anything to it, but in the eBay instructions it is asking me to provide them a label. I want to know how to approach it right this time. Does NOT doing anything still apply even under Managed Payments? Previously, how the eBay reps have instructed me to proceed was to get a shipping quote from the buyer and then provide them with the funds via Paypal. So what is the process under Managed Payments for an item not as described? Has anyone had this issue strictly under MP and how did you handled it? Thank you
Thank you, MyCottage!
