Welcome back to the what sells on eBay series. April was another solid month! I thought it was going slow, and then right on the last day of the month, I sold two things for $100+. It’s crazy how similar this month’s numbers are to March’s numbers. I sold fewer items, but my gross sales and profits are within $50 of each other.

I didn’t get as many items listed as I wanted to, but I did list pretty much everything that I had stored up to list. I can’t wait to get out to yard sales and start buying a ton of stuff! If I step it up, I think I should reach my goal of hitting 1,000 listings by the end of the year.

There were a couple of returns this month. They were both for hats – one didn’t fit the buyer and the other buyer just didn’t like it after they got it. It’s annoying that I have to pay for the return shipping since I have free returns, but that’s the price I have to pay for being a top rated seller and getting a 10% discount on final value fees.

eBay selling tips:

I started a Facebook group for Millionaire Dojo and it has quickly grown into a great community of eBay sellers who love sharing their tips! Make sure you check it out if you’re on Facebook. A lot of people have told me they’re really happy they joined the group!

This page covers all of my eBay selling knowledge.

This post covers how I list items for the best profit.

Most profitable item sold to date:

Vintage TNT CB radio amp. Total profit: $468.76

Numbers for the month

This month, I added all of my costs to this report after getting feedback from some readers. I didn’t buy any shipping or office supplies and I don’t track my gas mileage. People thought I was misleading because I didn’t list the fees, but I did take them out of the profits I listed on all past reports.

  • Amount of Items sold: 33
  • Gross sales: $852.33
  • Shipping charge to customers: $281.16
  • Actual shipping costs for me: $213.75
  • Cost of goods sold: $70.24
  • eBay & Paypal fees (including my eBay store subscription): $198.13
  • Profits after all expenses: $641.38
  • Average profit per item: $20.30
  • Ended the month with a total of 457 listings
  • Amount of new items listed: 73

To track my numbers, I use a service called Easy Auctions Tracker. Easy Auctions Tracker connects directly to your eBay account and pulls all the fees associated with each sale to show you the true net profit. All you have to do is keep track of what you paid for each item! The best part about it is that it’s only $49.99 for an entire year subscription! This is much cheaper than any other bookkeeping software I’ve seen but more accurate than other options. Sign up through this link.
