This Week on eBay

This has been a monumental week for me. I’m working on scheduling students for summer piano lessons and trying to increase the number of listings in my store so that  income from online sales can help to make up the difference. Not all of my students take piano lessons over the summer.

I was able to get my eBay inventory up to 1,150 items……..whew!

It’s a lot of work. I’m hoping to push myself to keep listing these next few weeks so I can take a little time off from listing this summer and just “coast” for a little while. I’d like to start maintaining as close to 1,200 items as I can since the Christmas buying season is just right around the corner.

Once again, I had sales on Amazon, and Bonanza this week too. My Bonanza sales are starting to become more consistent.

One thing that I’m planning to focus on over the summer is listing more on Amazon. I’ve been having about 2 sales a month on Amazon, and while I count any non eBay sale as a bonus, I’d like to work on increasing sales there. It seems to me like the fees on Amazon are a little higher than they are on eBay though.

I signed up for a membership on I  used the free version of it previously, so I’ll have to play around with the site  to see if the membership benefits help my sales.

My garage got cleaned and organized on Friday…… feels good to have everything put away and have a clean garage :)

    Wow, way to go, Rachel! I’m inspired to start doing some listing (I’ve done fewer than 10 items in the past), and I like the idea of listing “ahead,” too. I’m wondering…since a lot of what I have to sell is in the category of books, do you think it would be better for me to start with Amazon rather than ebay?

    With that many items listed,where do you store them and do you store them in the box/envelope it is going to be mailed out in when it sells? That’s my biggest thing right now and I don’t have ANYWHERE near that amount listed….lol!
