make money selling on ebay

The last two weeks have been seriously slow. I removed some slow/low selling items from my store. I also removed some products to send into Amazon FBA. Since I’ve been so busy with Amazon, I haven’t been doing any listing on eBay. I have another shipment to send into Amazon, then I can get back to my eBay listing. I can definitely see what happens when I’m not listing.

So on to this week’s sales.

Lessons learned:

If I don’t list, then I don’t get paid. I can see a correlation between listing and selling. When I’m regularly listing new items, I’m selling at least a few things a week. Over the last two weeks, I haven’t listed anything and my sales have come to almost a halt.

Another thing I need to realized and keep in mind is to stay away from low cost items. They’re not worth the hassle and they’re not going to net me enough to make good money.
