This past week was a little slow in Ebay. Why??? Because I did not have time to list new items. New auctions are needed to drive customers to your Ebay store and my auctions are probably less than 10. I did sell a book that was listed in my store and it was only listed for 1 week.
Cost of book: 1.00 (probably too much)
Final Value Fee 1.20 (12 percent)
List Fee .03
PayPal Fee .59 (6 percent)
Shipping 2.25 (free shipping to buyer)
TOTAL FEE 5.64
Listed for 9.99
So.. I made 4.35 . Not bad. Not great but not bad. It is evident that in order to grow an income from Ebay you need to list, list. list!!
If I had one hundred books listed and they all sold according to the above, I would have made over 400 hundred dollars in profit. Success on Ebay is definitely a numbers game.
