I completely agree with you. Ebay is a lot of hard work. I'm sure it's worked for some, but it hasn't worked for me yet. I tried selling my baby blanket but I have lost money more than I have made and I am at the point of giving up. But thanks to your advice - maybe it does work out that way and I have to try a different approach to it. Maybe somebody could give me an insight how ebay's worked for them...I could try that approach. I'm open to suggestions.
Hi, Long time lurker first time poster.
Everyone is always telling me how great ebay is and for some stuff I agree. But I do think most people are looking for great deals there.
When I first started selling stuff I did Ebay never had any luck with my larger stuff but the small stuff I put up (Burp cloths embroidered with smart ass comments) flew out the door. I sold them for $15 for a set of three and shipping, this also sent people to my website.
I tried to sell my baby blankets there and just couldn't get the money I needed to get for them; so I went back to the small stuff.
Somewhere in there is my answer LOL! If you have smaller things or something you can sell at a lower price put it on Ebay. Get the people hooked.
