Welcome back to the what sells on eBay series!

All I can say about my eBay business is, July was a flop. I didn’t make much.

With that being said, I barely did any work at all as far as listing. It’s pretty obvious that the more you list, the more you sell. And I don’t mean that you sell the items you list, it’s like eBay rewards you for listing more and you sell stuff that may have been listed for months. Not sure why it’s like this.

My profits might have gone down quite a bit, but hey, at least I still made a few hundred without doing much at all!

I’m going to be working hard in August and list a lot more than I did in July. We need to be getting our eBay stores packed with stuff because it won’t be long until the holiday shopping season is here!

I only had one issue this month. USPS never delivered one of the items I sent, so I had to refund the buyer. I’m hoping that I will make some money from this transaction by doing an insurance claim with USPS. I sold the item for $55+ shipping and I’m hoping to get $50 back from insurance.

I made some adjustments to the report this month. There’s been a lot of people reach out to me wondering why I don’t list the fees for every item. I wasn’t doing this because it was time consuming and these reports already take me hours to write up. Well, I came up with a system now that I’ve got Easy Auctions Tracker to do my numbers and it didn’t take much more time to type out all the fees associated with each sale.

The people spoke and I responded!
