Hey Jay and Ryanne, I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your last podcast. Jay, your story about telling your partners in the coffee business was hilarious! I get it completely! The usual response we usually get when people find out we sell on eBay is an “Oh.” Then if people are really interested they ask what we sell, where we buy what we sell. They usually have a strange look on their faces when they find out we buy at yard sales and estate sales mostly.

I am glad that my suggestion has been helpful. I have found (by accident, old habits are hard to change) this week that the Item Specifics have been working like they usually do where I am able to put them in before putting in the pictures and they haven’t disappeared. I guess it was just an eBay glitch.
Where did you get all of those historical documents? What a treasure trove you have there!
Hello. I just listened to this podcast yesterday. Thank you for going into more detail regarding the subject “if anyone promotes their store on social media”. It makes sense to me that it would be time consuming and that is why I never did it before. It seems that the time and effort that has to be put into it is not very effective for bringing more traffic to the store.
I have had the same problem all last week. I have found that if I wait to put in the Item Specifics after putting in the pictures then the Item Specifics stay. Unfortunately, this is not how I usually do the process. Being flexible and changing my process is something I learned from my job that I retired from, so nothing new here.09/04/2020 at 12:15 pm in reply to: Does anyone promote their store on social media sites? #81295
OK. I kind of thought this might be the response. It seems to me that it would be time consuming and that the sales would not be boosted enough to make it worthwhile. Thanks.
Thanks for the welcome replies. Yes, eBay is much easier than working in the medical field and a whole lot less stressful! Sourcing is good around where I live, we never lack for stuff to sell. My husband also gets a lot of people to donate free stuff for us to sort through and take what we want to sell. We have a truck and we offer to haul away what people haven’t bought at Estate Sales, or for people who need to empty out apartments after the person’s death, or empty out storage units. It has been great for getting a lot of really good free stuff that sells. We also go to yard sales, Estate sales, thrift stores (we don’t do this much, but we have a friend who owns a thrift store and she saves good stuff for us, and we give her stuff that we don’t want to sell). Anyway, good luck to all the fellow eBayers out there.
