Welcome back to the what sells on eBay series. December was another good month with it being the holidays. Although I’m not really selling things that might qualify as good Christmas gifts, I still sold a good bit of items. I made a mistake on one of the orders and shipped the item to the wrong address. I still haven’t received the item back so it may never show up. It was a $60 order too so that was a bummer.

I had a couple of partial refunds and one return this month. One of the items broke during shipping but the buyer said they could glue it back together so I didn’t refund them their entire purchase. I was able to claim it with USPS and get the money I refund the buyer back. The return was on a pair of boots that didn’t have a size on them. I thought I measured them correctly and put the right size but apparently not. If I didn’t make any mistakes or have any returns, I would’ve made about as much as I did last month.
