Sorry, I should have said the raw data I posted was across 2 months, not 30 days.
I was hesitant to post my actual numbers, but maybe they tell a better story than the percentages:
Ebay $14,403, Poshmark $449, Facebook $228, Etsy $0, $47 Mercari,Offerup $84
I like ListPerfectly, and it does make it easier to crosspost. I had shared on Posh daily during the experiment time.
I will continue to keep all of my other platforms open because I don’t like to rely on just one in case something happens to ebay or my account, I can easily ramp up another.
The conclusion for me is that my time is best spent listing on ebay, and to just maintain my other platforms but not spend more than 5% of my time on other platforms.
This is just me, I am not suggesting it might be the same for anyone else. However, it has been interesting to see exactly what my numbers are when crossposting so I could make an informed decision on how to spend the majority of my time.
Sorry for the delay, I liked List Perfectly, and will probably keep the low level subscription for another month. However, based on this results, I think just listing on ebay is the most profitable way for me to spend my time!
Okay, here are the results after approx 35 hours of work: Ebay 80.2%, Poshmark 2.5%, Facebook 1.3%, Mercari .3%, Offerup .5%, remaining sales are other from other avenues such as our antiques mall booth, and existing customers.
I have 64 for the week.
Okay, I have 84 this week!
41 for me this week.
Your new workspace is going to be a game changer! And I am so excited to watch the progress. Very fun. You can change me to “Girl on Fire”, lol. But my flame is dimming . . . college tours here with my daughter and a lot of juggling 🙂
Okay, we are on the road doing college visits, so I am posting my number now! 74. Don’t ask me how . . .I am tired. Thanks for keeping me motivated.
67 for the week. Going to be a low two weeks coming up, have to do a bit of travel!
Time Invested 7 hours.
Percents are a percent of total dollar value sold.
Update Week 1: Ebay 86.4% Facebook Marketplace 12.6%, Poshmark 1%, Mercari 0%, Etsy 0%, Grailed 0%, Tradsey 0%
My weekly total is 57. Woohoo!
@Amantino, have you tried ebay local pickup? People travel for the right item.
Hi Jay, I will sure post the update, and yes, I really want to know the answers to those questions as well!
I am doing a cross listing experiment. I guess I was having a serious case of FOMO. I stopped listing on other platforms about 4 years ago becasue ebay accounted for 95% off all my sales and it was really not worth my time and energy to list elsewhere. Has this changed?
Not sure, but I will let you know . . . I subscribed to list perfectly for a month ($70), and will spend 5 hours a week cross posting to mercari, etsy, poshmark, tradsey and facebook marketplace. I will post results weekly if you would like to know how it is working. I am a variety seller with 4,500 items in my ebay store. Hopefully, this experiment will answer some questions for all of us.
Hi All, just trying to catch up on forum! I do a ton of large items and list all on ebay as local pickup in conjunction with facebook marketplace. I usually have about 100 pieces of furniture. They do well!
