eBay Update

Remember these?


I was selling them on eBay for Christmas money.  They started at $4.99 each.  The first one went for $8.05 and the second went for $6.00.  I’m pleased.  I’m also pleased with the sellers fees, which were only $1.98 total.  Meaning my profit was $12.07.
Much better than when I sold on Amazon.  I figured out that if I had auctioned my Amazon item off on eBay and it had sold for the same price, I would have only paid $3.33 in fees rather than $6.54.  About a 50% difference.  I know which way I’m going from now on.

    Thank you all. 🙂 @youngandthrifty–I’ve heard they charge the customer an estimated shipping rate for paperback books, but apply it to hard covers, too. I’m with you…still love buying from amazon, but don’t think I’ll sell there again.
